Rampage is gonna kick Jon Jones' ass.
He already embarrassed him here, now to take him out in the ring.
I for one like Jones. He's a great fighter who's extremely fun to watch, I just feel the media and UFC in general is way overrating him. Yes he's a stud and a monster, but it's not as if he's faced top tier competition throughout his UFC run. Aside from Rua, it's arguable he hasn't faced another top 10 guy. The fact he ducked Rashad, a fighter I really don't like, really annoyed me too. It's not as if Rashad is some amazing fighter who strikes fear into you. He's just another of the top tier fighters, no better or worse than any of the other top 5 fighters. But for some reason, he was scared enough to claim he had an injury and needed surgery backing out of their fight, then when they found a replacement and the contract was signed, he was all of a sudden fine enough to fight again meaning the last guy that Rashad beat is now getting a title shot before him.
Other than that though, do I really think Rampage will win? Not sure, I hope so, but more than anything, I hope for a much better fight than the Rua fiasco, where Rua came in fat, unprepared, and possibly injured.
