Jon Jones Talks UFC 140 Game Plan For Lyoto Machida.
I’m confident in machidas ability to “out point” jones in the stand up
Machida is getting help from Anderson I think he has a shot.
Jones beat both people that machida lost to(ok he didn’t really lose to rampage but it still went won on points only). I don’t give machida much of a chance. Jones has too much range for him and he doesn’t have to power that rampage has(machida).
Though machida does have steven segal on his side……..
This fight will definitely showcase Bone’s skills or for that point Lyoto’s!! I think Bone’s is unaware that Lyoto is for ever improving and evolving and this will be one of his most dangerous fights to date. Lyoto’s style will force JBJ out of his comfort zone and thus exposing him for strikes and take downs. Lyoto also has KO power in all his limbs so if he gets an opening we can witness if JBJ is as durable as he seems. I’m going with Lyoto on this one except unless it goes to a decision!!
Machida’s only chance is to leg kick JBJ to death. If he can’t do that it’ll be complete wreckage by JBJ, just like he’s been doing literally everyone since his first UFC fight. He’s just better than ur average fighter. Like Kobe is better than ur average NBA player.
This is a easy win for Bones because Lyoto fights from the outside. With Jones reach he’ll pick him apart Lyoto will try to take him down FAIL and get submitted. To beat jones you have to have a chael type game plan smother his stand up and get him on his back and try to punch him to sleep or sneak a sub in.
even im the dragon fan i think it is dificult to hit jones with a clean shot or atleast touch his face ,yes machida is very ilusive and fast but it doesnt have the reach that jones have,distance is key in a fight
This fight could be a fizzer! Both fighters like to counter more than come forward! Which could result in a 5 round dance fest!
@aussie How in the world could you consider Jones a “counter fighter”?
@ danby u cant go by who beat who always.. remember styles make fights.. this is a pretty good match up stylistically for Machida.AND FOR MACHIDAS POWER IS NO JOKE KO WINS OVER TIAGO SLIVA AND RASHAD EVANS TWO GUYS IN TOP 5 AT ONE TIME AND I BELIVE RAMPAGE HIMSELF SAID WOW LOYOTA CAN HIT HE WAS REALLY SURPRISED BY HIS POWER. U dnt know MMA.. COUCH FIGHTER..
Styles dont mean s*** when Bones is fighting he’s going to beat him easily just because he’s in a different league. He can win by repeated back handers if he wants. Its like a man fighting a 14year old.
