But, honestly, if you hadn't known better, wouldn't you have thought Randy and Brock were from two different weight classes.

It would be a risk for both of them, even at a catch weight because one of them will still be able to say I beat -----, it would still be considered a "notch" for the winner's reputation. The risk might be more for Jones because of where he's at in his career, but likewise, the reward would be greater for him because this is Anderson Silva.
But Bonie isn't that what all fights are? You Risk losing and the other guy gets credit for beating you? Or you win and get credit for being better than the other guy? It doesn't matter how old or young you are thats part of the game as long as you are competing.

And Thats why I dont understand or what I think fans dont understand...
