I can't bare to see him lose fights anymore to the likes of Mir and Cain. He barely even pulled out a victory to a 47 year old Randy Couture. I just hope we don't end up seeing him like Mark Coleman.
I have to agree Nogs should hang it up. Only because he isn't at a high level as he used to be. The UFC overall wasn't too bad though and is it me or did Axe Murderer Sylva get a nose job?

Jon Jones is a bad muthafugga! KNEW this kid was going to be something special.

Probably needs one or two more solid fights before a title shot.

Props to Junior de Santos too. He's a knockout machine. Wow.

I knew Jon Jones would be a badman since he dubbed Bonnar awhile back. Kid is forreal, he'll rupture Machida

Pretty good card especially since GSP is on there. THe prelim bouts look good too. But yeah back to Jonny Bones, I've never seen a dude throw such vicous elbows. Jones will be LHW champ at a very young age, Shogun and Machida should be worried. Jones is training with dudes like Rashad, GSP, and Nate the Great so thats even better. Btw now we all know for sure Jones would eat Couture for breakfast

Randy might be able to out smart him. However; its just not fair to compare. One guy is heading out of the industry and one guy is coming right in. I hate going against Randy he will always be my favourite fighter.

Yee thats true but it looks like Bones' prime will be better than Randy. Jones dismantles his opponents, he hasnt lost fair and square yet too. Jones has the natural athletic abililty + the drive. Jones would suplex Randy and then throw some unorthodox kick followed by some random spinning elbow from a weird angle.

Anyways I want GSP to shut up Hardy once and for all. Hardy has one thing going for him, his hands. GSP already dealt with a more powerful, versatile striker in Alves so I doubt Hardy catches GSP with a KO punch. However, I do want GSP to completly finish Hardy, he hasn't really finished an opponent in some time. Alves was a decision and Penn was a corner stoppage.

GSP will just play a safe fight. He will knock him to the ground whenever he can and not even give Hardy much of a chance to fight stand up. Thats GSP he has so many weapons he'll just play safe and dominate you. He takes the belt home and opponents hope they either get lucky or GSP ages.

As for Bones being better than randy. You have to remember Randy started MMA much later in his life and at the beginning he was considered more to be a "jobber" to one of UFCs big cards but actually be the guy. The rest of course is history.

Compare bones' career a little more Mir. Both coming in young and unexperiences. Mir's nickname back in the day was after all "The Project".

jones vs couture would be destruction.... jones would dominate him. in fact, vera (IMO) beat couture in their last fight, and was robbed by the judges... and after seeing jones explode elbows on vera's skull, i dont even want to think about the damage he would inflict on that old man.

i read yesterday that White is trying to bring jones along slowly, and says he's about a year away from a title shot...

link:
White says Jones hype warranted, though title shot at least one year away | MMAjunkie.com

i think its a good idea to go this route too, the hype in his corner is too great right now, and i dont want it to effect him... he's going to be lethal, and he's only 22, so why rush it... he will be a champion soon enough.
i'm expecting 2 more fights for him before he gets a title shot.
i'm praying that his 2 fights will be Tito, and then Rua... and then hopefully Machida will still be the champ - and they go toe to toe for the belt.
i would pay top dollar to see jones pummel Tito's big head! so please, if there is a UFC god out there, put Tito in the ring with this kid! please!

UFC 111 looks really good.
Hardy is no walk-over, he can get a few lucky shots on GSP and stun him... but who am i kidding, GSP will kill him.
i'm actually more excited to see Mir and Carwin... people need to stop sleeping on mir.
ever since brock beat him, he’s a new man… he will own the heavyweight class for the next 2 years – as long as he stays motivated. and with brock on his way back, I don’t think that will be a problem.

I dont want to see GSP fight safe, yeah that's good for and he's a great fighter but I want to see him destroy Hardy. Not just take him to the ground and grapple with him and land some blows here and there. I would like to see that real killer instict from GSP which we havent seen in his last few fights. Frank Mir is a nutcase. Dude was ranting on about how he wants Brock to be the first person dead due to octagon related injuries


edit - A Jones vs Tito fight would be good because we would get to see Tito get detroyed but it aint really fair. Tito is garbage and Jones is lethal. That would be a death wish for Tito. As for Mir owning the HW class, I gotta disagree. Brock is just a ebast, I would like for Mir to ebat him but I think Brock would murder him again. I also think Big Nog would beat Mir in a rematch, and JDS could probably knockout Mir too.

Have to agree with most of that. I also agree with Mir. He is getting a little bigger and the dude is just a smart fighter. Carwin is more of a Mini Brock and Mir just has to make sure his punching power doesn't own him.

I also can't stand Brock and hope Mir destroys em if Brocks steriod related injury is healed (accusation I know but what heatlhy athlete gets that type of problem and blame Canada for it)
