Jon Jones, but only because Tito will hurt his back and crack his skull before the fight.

Jones has asked for Gustaffson next. Says the only thing he still has to prove at light heavyweight is that he wins because of skill and not just because of his size/reach, so he wants to fight someone who's taller and has a similar reach. No interest in a Machida rematch apparently

I'm not that interested in seeing him beat Machida again either. I'd rather see him against Gustafsson, Teixeira or Mousasi, but since he says he's looking at superfights/HW fights after his next defense, then Gus makes the most sense.

Please man.... anybody is just a punching bag or a ragdoll for Jones/GSP/Silva.... no competition whatsoever for them, but they have to fight because.. well.. they get payed...

Only those other weight classes are kindof up for grabs...

Not sure if anyone cares, but apparently Ricardo Mayorga won his MMA debut.

http://www.sherdog.com/news/news/For...pectacle-52239

"Friday night at the Pharaoh's Casino in his hometown of Managua, Nicaragua, Mayorga managed to overcome his complete lack of grappling ability against unheralded opponent Wesley Tiffer, ultimately stopping the Canadian transplant with what appeared to be an illegal knee to the spine at the end of the second round.

The fight was originally conceived as a lightweight contest, then a 160-pound catch-weight before Thursday's weigh-in, at which Mayorga clocked in at 175.9 pounds. Tiffer, who claimed a 5-1 record entering the bout and hadn't competed since 2009, tipped the beam at 153 pounds. The 39-year-old Mayorga, who held world titles at 147 and 154 in the squared circle, looked every bit as physically terrible as the number on the scale suggested."

Doesn't sound like a very good victory, though

Wow. he spends most of the fight getting outgrappled (he didn't look completely cluelles on the ground) and while his opponent puts a triangle on him, he knees him right in the lower back. that could not have been a legal strike. no way, no how. Lower back muscles can take some punishment. the spine can't. scary knee.

I can't see anyone beating Jon Jones at 205 or below.

The only two that I can picture in my mind having any shot are heavyweights Cormier and Cain. I think the slower heavyweights would get owned by Bones.

Sonnen vs Wand confirmed.

I say Wand catches Sonnen with a flurry late in the 2nd round, after spending most of the fight on his back.

so jack slack moved over to shitty bleacher report, but... he's still jack slack!

he recently did a pretty cool breakdown on floyd weather's 'wrestle-boxing' and why it would be very useful for MMA grapplers. especially seeing as how they often try to play it safe with the jab and wind up getting clocked by strikers... not getting their main skills in to a match enough.

i.e., they aren't mayweather enough!
