    Default 'Rumble' open to heavyweight fight against 'Demolition Man'

    'Rumble' open to heavyweight fight against 'Demolition Man'
    http://www.mmamania.com/2014/8/1/595...any-weight-mma
    During a recent interview with MMA Roasted, Johnson was asked who he'd like to fight next, but was unwilling to call anyone out. When asked if he'd ever be willing to take on Alistair, a question that was posed after Johnson said his former training partner was at "negative zero" when it came to picking up the ladies, "Rumble" didn't hesitate to respond.

    "I'll fight him at any weight."

    He has looked impressive since coming back but I don't know if the Reem is being a bit ambitious?

    10/10 for confidence in his own ability though, if he could last the Reem's early barrage he most definitely could beat him, would depend on the pace of the fight IMO

    Because its Rumble we will see things like what was said above and praise him for whatever reason.

    10/10 for confidence in his own ability though,

    Id love to see Rumble take on AO.

    I don't think it is too much at this point for Rumble either.

    I think AO is on the decline and if Rumble could take him out it would sky rocket his stock.. What are his other options at this point? Pray for a fight with Gus? Go down the line to Manuwa?

    I think it would be just the opposite. I think people would like to see Jones call out and compete at HW.

    Rumble is winning as of late, overeem not so much. Rumble has looked great recently, overeem has been getting knocked out recently... I don't know why rumble would want to go to up to heavy weight when he's doing well at light heavy... But I'd watch him fight overeem and wouldn't completely rule him out....

    Bones have you ever heard a fighter say he can't beat them before it happens?

    I would love to have Jones call out a heavyweight

    I think rumble can hang with reem. Did just fine against AA.

    he did, Cain. Then everyone proceeded to freak the fuck out.

    Once he walks though DC in september, id assume a lot of your (the forum) opinions on Jones at HW will change.

    I'd like to see him face several people at HW. Cain, Bigfoot Silva, Overeem and JDS just to name a few.

    and I DO NOT see him "walking" through DC, if he does then God Bless Him, but I think it will be a good fight.
