Jones already completely destroyed these two. Log in to Reply glenn August 3, 2012 to much knee injurie realy held shogun potential to be even greater that he is right now Log in to Reply paulwonder27 August 3, 2012 Shogun looks pretty sharp but I noticed hes catching the pad a lot of the time even on lower strikes with his foot cant be good for injuries and not half as powerful as a full shin kick. Log in to Reply LoneRonin August 3, 2012 WAR Shogun!! I don’t think Vera will be up for it… Its funny to see them at the end, for the people that live there its probably an everyday thing. Log in to Reply FLYINGKNEEss August 3, 2012 WAR Shogun, War Machida. i seen anderson and machida at work this week buying some running shoes. i forgot what anderson bought. but machidas going to wear some Blue flex runs for his walk out today. just wanted to share. haha Log in to Reply axepittbull August 3, 2012 i wish i culd be more like sergio moraes. always happy. always. Log in to Reply Joe Dog August 3, 2012 People forget, this could lead to a Rua rematch with Henderson. Odd that everyone seems to have written off Vera (for good reason) and Hendeson (also for good reason) but anything can happen. Remember Henderson vs Fedor? Surprises are always welcome. We might actually see Vera vs Henderson for the title? Log in to Reply bobbo August 3, 2012 I cant wait for this fight(card). Rua is tougher than Vera so he’ll win but it should be fun to watch. this card is STACKED. Im excited to see several of these fights. from top to bottom this is the best card in awhile. Im really excited to see Swick back in action. 8 of these fights are great matchups. The last 2 fights Im unfamiliar with the fighters. So pumped to see the Bader vs Machida fight as well. That fight could easily have been the headliner . Log in to Reply mmafan August 3, 2012 Im disappointed that Shogun ducked Glover Texeira. Not sure if he did it because hes a friend or because hes afraid of Glover. Texeira is one tough dude and im not surprised fighters would duck him, just a bit surprised Shogun did. War Texeira! Log in to Reply Drew August 3, 2012 Bad matchup for Vera. He likes to keep distance and range and use kicks. He’s not going to be able to do that against Shogun who will be in his face and throwing combinations. When he connects, Vera will retreat into survival mode. Shogun by third round TKO. Log in to Reply This isn't hype August 3, 2012 why does it look like shogun is gasing when he is doing round house kicks? Log in to Reply This isn't hype August 3, 2012 I hate jon jones but I go to admit, he tore through everyone that is fighting on this card. Log in to Reply Genghis Khan August 4, 2012 It all depends on his cardio…. Log in to Reply junglerottjim August 4, 2012 why doesnt someone shin pad up and take some kicks from shogun lol Log in to Reply Powertele August 4, 2012 Shogun is shogun because he comes straight in like a samurai. No FEAR. Like warriors armed to the teeth with the best armor. He comes to fight. WARRRRRRRRR! Log in to Reply cutu2bad August 4, 2012 Rua is not telling us the full truth is he smoking or has had a bad lung problem ? because he gasses out faster and faster these days Log in to Reply playovilla August 5, 2012 Why would anyone hate jon “bones” jones? so glad he made it. Sooo much talent that he looks bored with it at times. Broke shogun down. literally, He looked like a broken man by the end of the fight. who else has done that? Log in to Reply playovilla August 5, 2012 by the way, I have nothing against shogun. he’s a humble guy. Log in to Reply haha August 6, 2012 so you guys are saying because JJ won against all of them they shouldn’t fight anymore???
