Damn that sucks. Gonna be hard to find a main event replacement that Britts will care about anymore. I'm sure there's gonna be a lot of people calling for refunds

Yushin Okami has been released....WTF!! He was literally ranked number 3 in the MW division now he has been cut? Sure he's never going to be champion but he's a great guy to distinguish good fighters and actual contenders. I am shocked.

jack slack did a pretty disappointing job breaking down gus - jones, but connor from BE has filled in pretty nicely.
Quote:
POSITIONING, Featuring: Jon Jones, Alexander Gustafsson

Well of course I have to cover this fight. There were so many things that both fighters did well, and so many things that went wrong for either guy. It was a truly competitive, back-and-forth fight, and we were all lucky to be able to witness it live, most of us experiencing genuine shock at the unexpected early success of the Swede. Not only did Gustafsson take Jones down for the first time in his career, but he convincingly won the boxing portion of the fight, using a quick jab to set Jones up for numerous power shots to the head and body.

How did he do it?

Well, it turns out Jon Jones really doesn't know how to box with somebody. Like this GIF, for example. Jones is completely square to Gustafsson and eats a jab. Since it moves a little quickly, it's worth breaking down in picture format.




1. Jones steps forward with a jab and, circling, Gustafsson slips it and pops the champ's head back with a jab of his own.

2. And another, this one putting Gus in range for a right hand. Jones' feet are now completely out of position-he's at a very bad angle.

3. Jones makes the bizarre decision to step across Gustafsson's body, rather than pivoting away or simply switching to southpaw and stepping back.

4. Gustafsson nearly takes Jones' back as he tries desperately to get out of punching range, though Jones does manage to stifle Gus' right uppercut.


This is one of many opportunities for Gustafsson fans to lament their hero's love of the right uppercut, because he often throws it when another strike would work far better. A straight right, for example, immediately after the second jab, would have been perfect.

But I digress. The most important thing to take away from this exchange is Jones' lack of comfort in the pocket. Once Gustafsson begins encroaching on Jones' space, he starts making strange, dangerous decisions to avoid the punches, turning away (as he also did here), closing his eyes, moving the wrong direction to avoid blows. These all speak to one conclusion: Jon Jones is not comfortable with an opponent who can stand in range and box him. He's not comfortable exchanging punches period, it turns out, especially with someone who can and will throw combinations. Despite the fact that, when he does keep his cool and maintain his position, he is capable of shutting down even Gustafsson with strikes like this: GIF. His inability to do so consistently is just a huge defensive hole that needs shoring up.

you know, almost a week later... i might have to concede that jones really did win that fight in the real world... i.e. not just on the cards or in some peoples' minds.

true, jones' face got busted up and gus was clearly the better boxer... and yet he did win the fight metrics and was still energetic and dangerous til the end.

meanwhile, gusty was the one who looked on the verge of falling over and collapsing during certain moments of the last two rounds. i do think that if they had been allowed to fight on until there was a finish, jones had the much higher odds of winning.

so, great fight... very close fight... and gus is clearly the new star in the LHW scene... but i'm much less sure at this point that he deserved the official decision. the obvious screw-up was that third card, 49-46, but thankfully it had no effect on the outcome.

dude... i respect mir. he's a legend and a pioneer. and he was the champ. and he's a talented, interesting guy. but he matches up absolutely horribly against alistair, IMO.

striking has always been his biggest weakness, and if alistair has a last, final card to play in the UFC, it's a brutal striking attack with lots of muay.

how do you possibly, possibly see mir surviving the reem's early onslaught...?
