Default Who wins? Jones vs Evans this weekend

Who does everybody think is going to win this fight and why? I like Jon Jones a lot but I hope Rashad doesnt point fight him the whole time like he always does. I always worry Jones is going to lose but he never does.

I am saying Jon Jones in the 3rd end the fight by submission

i think the rashad tito first fight was the worst fight i ever saw..they basically just danced around with a jab or 2 each round!
i was at a bar the rashad/lidell fight
the first 8 minutes of that fight they did the same thing, i was (well drunk) but screaming at the top of my lungs "ENGAGE!!!!!, engage!!!!! ENGAGE!!!! then seconds later, arguably the greatest haymaker ever!

rashad will win if he can keep it boring and eek out a win with better jabs (not likely)
john jones is just on another level and will stop rashad early by ko or sub!

I will have to say my home town boy and high school class mate Rashad Evans. But I think I have to say that for all of his fights.

Jones in the third. I think he will have sugar in trouble early and toy with him. I see him being able to stop the fight but dragging it out because he wants to punish Rashard.

This is the first fight I have been excited for since gspee DIAZ so I hope its a good one. I don't care for Rashards demeanor or his fight style but he is a beast of a wrestler with dangerous strikes.


Jones in a entertaining walk with Rashard showing heart but getting humbled is how I see it happening. What do I know

Jones. Doesn't matter what round. Let's get to a super fight between him and Anderson or him and the heavyweight champ already.

Jones decisivley. Jones will utilize his unorthodox striking, and multiple angles to win this fight. Evans only chance would be to catch Jones, which he'd have to get in close to do so. I do not see Jones allowing that. Evans is a better wrestler but it's MMA and Jones TDD should be enough to keep it on his feet. I'll pick 3rd round submission. Jones drops evans, starts the G&P, Evans gives up the back, goodnight.

Jones' holes are starting to show after the rampage and machida fight, but he's legit.. I give jones a 75% chance of winning, rashad is the one person you can't count out of this fight other than machida..

I will be on an airplane during the fight...lame. I am far from an expert, but gotta go with Jones until he gets beaten, right? Not sure Evans has Machida's quickness, which in the end just helped him just get to the 2nd round against Jones.

hard to bet against Jones as he hasn't been challenged by anybody thus far. he destroyed guys on his way up to the title fight, absolutely crushed Shogun, and then made Rampage and Machida look ordinary. i truly believe though that Rashad has the best chance in the LHW division to beat him though. Rashad has awesome power in his hands and is a great wrestler. A smart fighter too. that said, i put money on Jones to win, but i wouldn't be shocked if Rashad pulled this out.

Go back and watch the entire first round of the machida fight, and then watch the rampage fight after.. Jones has major reach, is strong enough to manhandle any 205'er, has crazy striking techniques, BUT his striking is a little slow, and he doesn't throw many combos leaving himself open a lot
(again, watch the first round of the machida fight.. Jones had NO answer for the entire first round. if machida hadn't gotten within jones reach and kept up that same pace throughout the fight, it would've been his fight.. rampage did surprisingly well boxing against him too. one of these days, one of those hits could catch his jaw and knock him out.)
^that's the biggest hole in jones' game, he could use a little bit of muay thai, karate, or even straight boxing. he's a fast learner and a mean student of the game, though, he'll catch up in no time.. I'm just saying it could go either way.. Stylistically, I think machida (or maybe gustafsson) has the best chance at beating him.. But rashad also has a good chance since he's trained with jones since the start of his career. Like I said, most likely jones will take it, but anything is possible.

I really don't like Evans at all - so I'm looking for a knockout of the night. Would love to see a repeat of what Machida did to him. The pictures that came out after that were just hilarious.
