Let's go Bones! Make yourself the GSP/Silva of the Light Heavyweight division.

Really want to see Jones and Evans not a fan of the rest of the card though.

I'm really hoping Evans wins but there is no way I'd bet on it. I think Jones eventually tags him and TKO finishes him on the ground.

Excited to see Rory MacDonald back too.

This. And I am hoping Jones makes quick work of Rahad.

Bones looks unstoppable at the moment. Remember his last 3 fights were against top caliber competition, 2 Pride LHW legends and against a former champion in Machida. I cant even envision rashad winning. Jones just have too many weapons, too well rounded and very athletic. The only way evans could win is probably via a solidly landed hay maker. I think bones' ground game is good enough to not get wrestlefcked for 5 rounds.

As for the other fights, i dont know who che mills is but i believe rory will TKO him. I think he is for real, not 'houston alexander' real but real enough to be hyped as the next big thing at 170.

Im rooting for big ben to win. No way schaub knocks him especially after Rothwell fought like a zombie against one of best strikers at heavyweight division (hunt) and not get KO'ed. His own endurance is Rothwell's biggest enemy in this fight.

IMO Rashad only has a puncher's chance.

Jones is going to win, he has some solid wrestling skills and takedown defense to stop Evans from taking him down and laying on him to a decision. Jones will get the TKO stoppage win in the early rounds.

Schaub is going to punch Rothwell around for 3 rounds and Rothwell is just going to stand their and absorb punches like he did against Hunt.

Agree, very lackluster with no impications.
Mike Mac and Torres i intersting, but far off the path. I'd rather see Mike Mac since he's got semi intrigue

Terrible card. Jones vs. Evans is going to be a massacre.

Hopefully it's a good fight. I got a feeling we'll be disappointed..
