Matt looked very crisp past the halfway mark then got clipped and I really thought was recovering well. Matt your still my champ. I appreciate all that you've done and I look forward to the future you're a great man and a great champ

Jones made Rampage look like an amateur

Anyone else a little disappointed to see GSP 2.0 out there? Exciting young fighter who gained popularity because of his dynamic striking & killer instinct who gets the belt & then decides to play it safe until it's absolutely certain he's not in danger of losing his belt?

Sorry, probably just sour grapes talking now.

EDIT: It has been pointed out by many here that I let my impression of the Jackson/Jones fight be colored by my disappointed over Matt's loss (i.e. sour grapes). It's not that I was pulling for Rampage (I picked Bones to beat him), but just that I wanted everyone to be as pissed as me (misery, company, etc.). Long story short: sorry for being a Debby Downer.

He played it safe but he definitely didn't lay n pray and he still finished the fight, not to mention he still threw a couple spinning elbows and a bunch of unorthodox kicks. All I saw was him respecting the power of Rampage, keeping him outside his range and picking him apart...Flawless performance in my opinion

That didn't sound like facts to me MR. (yes I am still stalking you). Facts, deal in Facts!!

Sour Grapes Mr, besides, when the chance was there he jumped all over it, something 1.0 hasn't done in 5 yrs.

Yeah just sour GRAPES! As much as I wanted to see Rampage win he just got outclassed, almost seemed as if he was scared to engage.

As for your GSP comment I just have to shake my head in dissapointment...

No fighter is ever the same after being emasculated by GSP... And that's a Fact! He doesn't just beat people he Humbles them!
