Gus looked slow. Jones' speed and wrestling would be too much.

I do think it's legitimately part of Nate's gameplan. It will work against some stupider fighters too. When Nick does it though, it's because he's just a jackass.

since nate lost, maybe melendez will derail his alleged 145 plans and go after the 155 belt

Amazing to see the Stockton slap get so completely dominated. Bendo conpletely made an ass out of me, and I love it. Also shows how amazin Edgar is for being such a little dude... one who went 1-1 in most people's minds against this beast.

Great, great win for Benson Henderson. This huge win totally cements him as the biggest badass at 155 IMO. Brav-f..king-o, dude...

Henderson has some tree trunks for legs. Damn, those leg kicks had to hurt. Time for boxing.

yah thats true actually, especially near the end of the fight, nate was hoping to coerce benson into making a disciplinary mistake

Bendo fights assassins with a ****ing toothpick in his mouth. That is the true definition of swag.

the main card went almost as i expected, though i thought the main event would have been closer. diaz still struggles with checking leg kicks and benson would not allow him to get into any stance at all. benson might not have elite power but dude is tireless and presses you the whole time. he's also very aware of his position. the couple times diaz could have gotten an advantage on the ground, ben either got up quickly, slowed down and slipped out or just sprawled.

his clinch game and grappling is some serious stuff. he'll be tough to beat...i think a well rounded muay thai fighter or quick guy (like edgar) would give him the most trouble.

Aldo or Pettis are his only real challenges. Pettis beat Bendo by avoiding tie ups and the fence while also having better kicks. Aldo is just a monster with insane TDD.

Though Bendo was ****in amazing today, made Diaz look like an amateur. Benson is like the GSP of LW division, just so crisp and technical in every area on top of perhaps the best cardio in UFC. After that relentless assault he still looked fresh when his hand was raised. And he did all that with a toothpick in his mouth, just completely badass or idiotic depending on your view.

IDK why everyone believes this, Jones has said he walks around 228, diets down to 217 and cuts from there. There are bigger LHWs as far as weight goes. Rampage, Forest, Bonnar, Chael are 240+ and cut a lot more weight.

Jones has a big upper FRAME, but those chicken legs belong in the LW division. He is not Rumble cutting 40+ pounds lol. He makes 205 quite easily and has never missed weight, it's his weight class. Maybe his opponents should just kick those legs and expose his disadvantage.

Though he has said he will move up to HW by 2014, since he is getting bigger. People just think he is huge because of the reach, but too bad there are no reach classes. Good thing NBA caliber athletes aren't in UFC, Rondo, Durant, Smith would be even worse than Jones.

Yah jones weight isnt that crazy.

Chael Sonnen is walking around 240 right now. you look at the pics of him and clips of him from the new TUF, and he looks quite large.
