Im sure he has improved alot since that fight though... well see on saturday..
also you forgot a shogun opponent who tried to tak him down... his name is ricardo arona and hes won about ever jj compertion hes ever been in and had monster td's in his prime... He took shogun down almost got subbed got swept and hammer fisted to unconsciousness
you could be right .. but if jones gets him down, he is so long that he can make great strikes from the top .. just like the vera fight ... one elbow and a broken orbital .. i love shogun and jones, so i don't know how i am gonna even watch this ... i'll be happy if either wins ... i just think jones has the style advantage in this fight ..
