Arrow 145: Jones vs. Evans

Huge fight tomorrow night for the UFC LHW Title.

Former training partners, a mentor and a student, collide... Champion versus former champion, two of the cockiest but most talented fighters of all time.

I'm amped. Both guys are amongst my favorites, and I'm hoping for a war.

Evans being such a HUGE underdog is a little ridiculous. I know Jones has been steamrolling guys, but Rashad is f*cking ELITE. He has beaten EVERYBODY except Machida and has amongst the best blend of skills in the LHW division besides Jones.

I really want to see a surprising war... if not an upset, at least Evans making it a dog fight and hurting Jones with some hard shots. I like Jon as well, so the intrigue of seeing someone absolutely DOMINATE at such a high level is very appealing. While guys like GSP have dominated with wrestling over some top tier guys and Anderson Silva has been able to finish some impressive people, nobody has had the run that Jones had in the past 12-15 months. Phenomenal.

Adding to that huge main event, we got Rory Macdonald vs. Che Mills, Miguel Torres vs. Michael McDonald, and a few other big fights on the card. Should be a good night, and after such a long time between UFC PPVs, I hope it lives up to the hype... just like Jones has.

I can't see past Jones, due to his dominance, but Rashad has fights that he looks unbeatable in. If he turns up on his game then it will be a war.

Haha, I really doubt it'll be a first round KO for either guy, and if it is, it's gonna be Evans. But I got Jones via round three tko in a back and forth fight, but mostly in favor of Jones.

That was an uneventful main event (pun intended) clearly Jones is the better man, but I think he could have pushed a bit more and finished 'Shad.

The real story here is...who wants to fight Rory MacDonald? That kid is getting scary good.

I don't know if Jones could have finished him. He didn't even drop Rashad with any of those nasty elbows... I'm amazed that Evans was able to fight through them and stay in there. I think 'Shad was fighting not to lose more than to win after he ate a few, but who can blame him? Those elbows destroyed Machida, Vera, Shogun etc.

But hey, the event wasn't bad by any means. And we got this epic moment:

"Fighting the invisible man."

Well done Rogan.


Far be it from me to say what Jones can and can't do, but he seemed to be landing his jab and all his body kicks pretty much at will, he'd corner Shad with those attacks and then kind of let him off the hook and back off to the center of the cage. I'm also surprised Jones didn't try for more than two takedowns, he tossed Shad away like a little girl once...I dunno, it was a disappointing, but completely understandable performance.

I thought Rashad stuffed a good three or four takedown attempts by Jones.

I didn't watch the PPV but watched the prelims but there was one thing that stood out it was during the Matt Brown fight. One judge score the fight 29-27 which means he probably scored a round 9-9.
  I am profoundly pissed off. In case you couldn't tell. But you know what? I'm in the minority. Most people are watching football and will continue to watch football and will continue to watch football right through the holidays. When fans don't ultimately care if your season started two months late, maybe you DO need to break the system and rebuild it. Then again, it's hard to fathom how a league coming off a 10 Finals rating that has 75 percent of America's most marketable professional athletes needs to blow things up.

Well that main event sucked.

This is why you don't overhype matches.

Not necessarily. If you look at Diego Sanchez vs. Clay Guida, which also got a 29-27 score, and I personally scored it 29-27, Diego won one round 10-8, one round 10-9, and lost one round 10-9.

I really didn't think it was bad at all. Each man had the other hurt at points. They know each other very well, so they aren't going to rush into anything and get caught.... It was definitely to Evans' detriment, as he should've gone for broke by round four instead of laying back and getting picked apart at range, or eating the occasional "sneaky elbow" as he called them.

And your FOTN winner...
