Jones is Awesome but he's winning all his fights based FIRST on his physical overwhelmence. I'm sure that's not a word haha. Don't get me wrong I think he has very good timing and mental game, but Machida's been practicing martial arts in a serious way his whole life. He's not just gonna stand there like the rest of Jones opponents.
Put Machida in Jones body and we would have the greatest longest reigning champion ever.
If Bones wins It would (and maybe not) probably be because he was just too long and big and strong for Machida, even though Lyoto is very strong maybe even stronger than all the rest of the other 205ers Jones already beat.
I've had a feeling Machida will KO bones for a while now and I also see him as the favorite in this fight.
I've had this feeling in my bones when:
Lyoto knocked out Silva and Rashad
Cain vs Brock
Cain vs Santos
Brock vs Carwin
the only time It didn't turn out my way was in the Carwin fight, but up until he gassed everything was going exactly how I felt.
Will I be wrong on Dec 10?
Dec 12 Is my B day and I'm already taking it off of work to either mourn or keep celebrating my favorite fighter's victory.
I'M SERIOUSLY PUMPED FOR THIS FIGHT AND MY BRAINS MIGHT EXPLODE WHEN THEY WALK IN THAT CAGE. This could be the greatest night of my MMA obsessed life.
I had that sort of night once at UFC 98 and I've been chasing it since.
LET'S GO DRAGON!
