Oh yea! GSP/Anderson is nothing compared to this. We already know GSP is going to be slaughtered.

I give Evans a better shot than Rua had, but I still think he loses to Jones. Jones is just crazy good right now.

Also, does anyone know what discipline Faber got his brown belt in? From where I sat, it didn't appear that he did anything to earn his next level belt for BJJ (if that's what it was for).....maybe I'm wrong though......can someone enlighten me?

Later.

The Only reason why if any, as minimal as it could be I think Rashad might have a chance is because of their so called friendship!

But I am sure Jones is going to finish him.
The one thing we will find out is how Jones does on his back.
I'm Sure Rashad is going for the takedown ASAP and pulling the Gray Maynard Technique! (Hold on for dear life and pray that the ref dosn't stand them up)

I think Faber earned his belt because of his previous victories. I don't think you have to necessarily pull a mind blowing submission during a fight to get a belt. Do you? I always had the impression that the fighters earned their belt in training.

I got the feeling it was kinda a situation where they felt he had earned it already, but wanted to give it to him on the big stage, ya know?

I was thinking the same thing. He must have already earned it because he didn't show any BJJ in that fight. Great fight, but he did it all with wrestling and boxing.

I know that Jones was focused on Saturday night, but he didn't seem too 'friendly' when Evans was in the Octagon. He's certainly not gonna be talkin' about any black on black crimes like Rampage did.....

Makes sense on both accounts (DLC & VCU)regarding the belts.

Ha, that's funny stuff, I don't care who you are.

I think your dreaming if you think Rashad is gonna take Jones down. Jones toyed with Hamil, Vera, and Bader....Rashad will have nothing for Jones. I see the Jones/Rashad fight looking very similar to the Jones/Hamil fight.
