Outstruck in the clinch maybe, but I see Jones as the better striker from range if he can keep it there. Cormier hasn't been exciting to watch, but he is great at nullifying his opponents. He could definitely do that to Jones as well, pressing him up against the cage and outwork him. He needs to watch out for those elbows for sure though (JDS hit Cain with a few as well).

thank you.

interesting snippets i've read about it. tate saying that if she gets arm-barred again, she'll shoot herself in the face in the octagon (will they smuggle the gun in her spit bucket?). dana saying that he almost axed rousey from TUF because her rep wanted too much money (sounds like he's blowing smoke as usual).

yup, agreed. once he picks his spot and drives in to jones, he will have a much more powerful base to work with. but i wonder if 12-6 elbows count if they're being thrown point-blank, body on body...?


in other jones news, the UFC apparently changed their stats yet again for the gus fight. they have gusty winning decisively, although at the same time... total strikes and significant strikes are the same, which is obviously wrong.


also, from the vlog lakergold posted, jones looks pretty... uh...

In all seriousness though, I hope Tito will be fine. He recracked his skull again. It's that neck injury. You must see the video if you still haven't watched it.

I'm not knowledgeable about what kinds of things White says, I am willing to admit that. I just find it tasteless for a guy that has achieved all his success because of what guys like Ortiz put their bodies through would be happy to see one of them hurt.

You must read some stuffs about it. It's between them, they hate each other so much.....

There's been so many things going on between them, that Dana tweeting something like this is something normal for us now. It's like we're immune to it.

But yea, you gotta read up some articles to know where I'm coming from with this. lol

agree.

dana is a routinely obnoxious asshole who needs to let go of things. at the same time, he's without question the most candid, interesting, loose-cannon in the fight industry. love him or hate him, dude is outright fascinating.

interesting side-note is that, reading between the lines, dana being dana might be the biggest reason why the UFC didn't jump to ESPN, merely fox. go to the talk sites to read more about all that... MMAUG, sherdog... etc.


at the same time, WTF is viacom (viacan't?) thinking...? who the f--k really wanted to watch old man tito and old man rampage leaning on each other for whatever rounds...? bunches of old men bringing in kegs and dancing girls they'd never dare touch...?


of course, this also means that tito is being a total and complete idiot about the situation. as in, NOBODY gives a F--K if he's badly injured or not. he's walking in to the arena on his name, not his current skills. WWF and all that horseshit clearly has much to teach those knuckleheads......

yes, much.

So yeah Bellator PPV officially cancelled and moved to Spike TV next Saturday night at 9. Honestly it's a nice card for free TV including Alvarez/Chandler II...but I would never have paid even $20 for it
