    I truly respect Rashad for his heart and for being tenacious, but my only question is: why would he want to get a rematch from Jones in the future?

    even if there is a rematch in the future I don’t see a different outcome. I think Rashad is an awesome fighter but Jon Jones is on a different level altogether.

    maybe he will. but jones will improve more than rashad and the result will be no different, no wait, it will be a little different in that jones will finish him next time.

    Evans needs to drop to MW

    11.5 inch reach advantage and 6 inches in height. Jones still coudnt finish him Sure Jones won, but I wasnt impressed by eithers performance. Jones made a few big mistakes and Rashad failed to capitalize on them.. Rashad wasnt in shape or simply ring rust IDK.
    Oh well Picked Jones but wanted Rashad to nail him.

    It’s actually a 5″ height difference and 9.5″ reach advantage.

    I love Rashad Evans but don’t really ever see him beating Jones but he took his loss like a champ and he should be proud of himself.

    If he stays at LHW he will probably be in the top 5 for a long time but I would love to see him move down to MW, if he can make the cut he would be a machine and definitely have title chances (especially if Silva retires in next couple of years).

    That physical difference kinda makes me wonder how anyone feels Hendo has a chance in hell of beating Jones. The H-Bomb hits hard, but holy hell that’s a lot of ground to cover with it.

    I’d actually like to see a rematch between him and Bisping, due to their controversial split decision. I think he’d be a good fight for Sonnen or Silva too.

    I still think Lyoto is the only one who could defeat Jones.
    Hend owill get destroy as well (im happy about it)

    Or Fedor would beat Jones easily as well

    You almost had me there. I had my finger on the “sharp” trigger until I got to the last line… :P

    I think Entity meant his penis

    Everytime you slam Hendo the LHW for KOing Fedor the HW you get a “weak” but you knew that. 8))

  • http://lowkickmma.com/members/Entity/ Entity

    yea, but we always know what the last line is Bruce lol

    11.5….no, I dont even wish it was that long! 8P
