Y'all can complain all you want. It's just his style of fighting now, it might not be that interesting to watch, but he's successful with it, right? It's one of the keys of fighting -- to not get hurt ... & If you're gonna complain about it & act like you know somethin' ... feel free to start your own MMA career and see how far you get

you know i just realised jones - overeem could be an interesting fight. both the same height, both start3d at LHW, wildly different styles, both a bit arrogant, both interesting personalities, both want to be HW champ.

I liked the younger, hungry, reserved Jones so much more, he turned into a more talkative, sensitive guy in past few years. That twitter and social media got into his head, he is like a teenage girl now.

Went from this...




To that guy in previous post.

Didnt Jones **** up his toe? Probably means he hasnt been training

Most fighters get out of shape when they dont have a fight lined up anyway.

Alot of fighters that fight in MW and LHW divisions reach the HW range when they are out of camp.

disagree w/ all of that. training is part of your life as a high-level fighter. squandering training time is letting others catch up to you, because MMA is constantly progressing and you’re scratching and clawing for the pay to do it in public.

fighters don’t typically get bigger because they’re letting themselves go. they’re bigger because they’re not dehydrating and not shedding muscle mass to reach weight.

Im sure they are training year round but not to the intensity of when they are preparing for a fight.
I remember GSP saying when he is out of camp he isnt training for a fight, he is training to learn new things and improve.


Guys like Rampage and Silva blow up to heavyweight range when they are out of camp. Fighters generally has three phases in their weight. They have the out of camp weight, top shape weight and obviously the weight they have to make for their intended division.

agree, but in order to train technique you can’t just let your body go. you have to have a very good idea what’s going to work for you and what isn’t on the big stage. that means being as reasonably close to fighting condition as possible.

those who don’t tend to get weeded out by the process. except for super-talented, super-dominant types like jon jones.

agree, i’m just saying that adding that much fat is more unusual than not. out of camp weight doesn’t just mean letting your body go. they’re still professional fighters with reputations, fanbases and often students and sponsors.

I find his style a bit boring myself, yet there I am watching everyone of his fights. He must be doing something right.

Not giving a single f*** while on vacation is not really the smartest thing to do, but sometimes, you just really just have to relax. There are fighters that tend to blow up while on vacation, and there are also fighters that wants to stay in shape.

Anyway .... Lolz eh?

this is true. as much as i think GSP is boring as f@ck, the guy is never out of shape even months away from a fight. Although his training does not translate to finishes or exciting bouts so maybe to each his own
