muhammad ali vs joe frazier 2012

JEET KUNE DO!! If people actually read Bruce Lee’s books and UNDERSTOOD it, they would be a force to be reckoned with, like Jon Jones.

MMAGiantSilva Says, in 2-19-2012 at 18:40:09 from    

LMFAO that is exactly why Rashad is my favorite fighter. You can really tell he has a phsycology degree.

BJJ7777 Says, in 2-19-2012 at 18:58:22 from    

Jon is right. The negative vibe in the room was not coming from him. It was coming from Rashad. It seems as if Rashad is more interested in seeing Jon fall than actually winning the fight. Rashad does not like Rampage. However, in the Jones-Rampage fight he was rooting for Rampage… That right there says a lot. Jealousy is a bitch… Jon admits he’s not perfect, but then again who is ? He admits he’s just a 24 year old kid trying to deal with all the fame, money and publicity brought on to him so suddenly. He speaks from his heart, unlike Rashad. Johnny Jones represents the next generation of mixed martial artists. The new breed of fighters. Good luck to both of them and thanks Bruno for creating the most updated MMA website! Keep it up.

DD Says, in 2-19-2012 at 18:58:33 from    

respect jon jones hugely as a fighter. Personally think hes the best ever already….but theres just something about him..ARRGH he really pisses me off, i dont know what it is i just dont like him at all…

Genghis Khan Says, in 2-19-2012 at 18:59:34 from    

I’ve been saying it all along, Jones thinks he’s the next messiah.

HaVoK Says, in 2-19-2012 at 19:21:41 from    

Im Back!!! Just rebuilt the PC after 8months or so without one. Ive missed this site (since Bruno doesnt have an iPad app) :-)

As always, thanks for the content Bruno! Much appreciated.

Bruno: Glad to have you back. 8 months without a comp. Man at all the s*** I would have gotten done.

fightdontbefake Says, in 2-19-2012 at 19:27:01 from    

If anyone can call him it, it’s Suga, he use to live and work with this phony. Jones is a good figher, but a immature person, socially awkward character. He is like that nerd in highschool that went on to get his phd at the age of 24, gets out of school and goes “F***, NOW WHAT”…

Opt!onz Says, in 2-19-2012 at 19:30:16 from    

get this man I’ma christian too, and Jon’s right about the whole “i’m not perfect” thing and thats not what christianity is about, its about the pursuit. and i aint the most humble guy either but i think i know a few things about it and how to tell who is and who’s not. with all that said EVEN I DONT LIKE THE GUY. i liked jon before he started talkin, before he got in front of the mic. so i get what rashad and others are sayin about not likin the guy and not quite bein able to put their finger on why. do i think he’s the best in the world, yes. but humility aint somethin to be talked about, or boasted about, or flaunted by sayin things like “people can learn from me” if they can learn from you than they will, you aint gotta tell them too. Jon’s cocky about his humility if that makes sense lol..its like tryna tell the world “im the humblest guy on earth, im better at humility than you all, you should learn from me” but then again who are we to judge. hes prolly doin a lot better than most of us would with that fame and money.

Dharmaboy Says, in 2-19-2012 at 19:33:09 from    

that fool Jone talks about proving for his family and goes and buys a 2012 Bentley. Right there you know his ass is fake. If a true person was concerned about his fam and taking care of them they wont be bothered with a quarter of a million dollar car.

Jones is now the typical man from the hood that Chris Rock talks about in his comedy routines “they’re spinning niggaz, they’re spinning!!”

I like Evans much more after he lost that fight to Machida. It put everything into perspective for him. Go Rashad!

Sweetlander Says, in 2-19-2012 at 19:59:21 from    

Omg I can’t stand Jones. That was one awkwardly placed white man btw lol

Jeff Says, in 2-19-2012 at 20:03:52 from    

I Lovem Both !!! And on the Night of the fight I wish more than anything that they shake hands and hug and all that.. If they would have sat there and got along in this meeting I would not have watched it… I neeed Hype Damnit it makes for a great fight.. Nothing personal though the kid is 24 – when I was 24 I was the cockiest man on the planet =) Im over 40 now and I avoid all confrontation. In life I learned that one .22/knife..etc in the small of someones back can change your outlook on a cocky life entirely.

Jeff Says, in 2-19-2012 at 20:13:23 from    

Ohhh Yeahh!! I almost forgot.


Im not sure how long it’s been since I have known you/your site but man Ive come home late from work and missed some great UFC Fights- but I can always rely on coming here to catch what ever I missed.
Ma MFKN Man!!! Now, where should I mail this Six pack ?

lee Says, in 2-19-2012 at 20:19:39 from    

i dont know but anything jones do, i cant get my self to like this guy, hes a good fighter but but im always wanting someone to beat him, im not a fan of rashad but i hope he win. i feel like jones is fake

Trizkel Says, in 2-19-2012 at 20:33:12 from    

Rashad sure drives a nice car(s) dresses in expensive clothing and wears expensive jewelery and has the balls to say Jon is full of himself?

Rashad needs to take a long hard look in the mirror before talking s*** about a person beign full of themselves.

MMA=Boxing Says, in 2-19-2012 at 20:36:10 from    

Jones doesn’t think he is the next messiah neither he is full of himself. He is just trying hard to make that difference in this world. Its easy to go with the current but not against the current. I remember when I tried to be that positive image for this world that everybody will judge me, laugh at me, make fun of me, try to make me feel less just because we didn’t share the same arrogance and cockyness in our way of speaking and acting. I lost all my friends, basically and I’m by myself as probably Jones feels sometimes when the world judge him. Jones is alright he just gotta endure it and a better future will lie ahead. For we all are immortals when we leave this world but the righteous are immortal and bless.
It’s never too late to start swimming against the current all it takes is milliseconds and it can happen anywhere .

Bernardo Says, in 2-19-2012 at 20:58:30 from    

I hate to admit it but I would like to see how Jon handles a real loss. Especially if it’s from Rashad!!

For some strange reason I can’t stand Jon or Rashad. I’m not prejudice, its just the way they come off, trying so hard to sound intelligent or classy when they really don’t need to. They’re great fighters and thats enough for me.

Mcrocop Says, in 2-19-2012 at 21:01:58 from    

i hope jones get KTFO… i’m tired of this kid

TransitionTR450 Says, in 2-19-2012 at 21:04:59 from    

Jon “bones” jones had the greatest year of any fighter in mma history! he has every right to be as cocky as he wants until/if someone can knock him off his pedestal! A lot of people said he was too young, not ready for a title shot last year. He won easily and smashed all who tried to take his belt from him. All that being said, I’m a HUGE Rashad fan, but wouldn`t put a cent down on him to win! At 185 he`s my hero!

El Shogun Says, in 2-19-2012 at 21:21:02 from    

If you guys really want to see insight into Rashads character check out the video where he is being interviewed by a comedian pretending to be “special”. that shows you how genuine Rashad is..
video is called Skippy in the UFC

El Shogun Says, in 2-19-2012 at 21:22:04 from    

Bruno please post that video as its worth watching… really funny!

Rocco55 Says, in 2-19-2012 at 21:23:21 from    

The thing about Jon Jones is that the more I see him interviewed the less I like him. If he never did an interview he would be a super star.

WARFEDOR!!!!!! Says, in 2-19-2012 at 21:33:34 from    

Just everyone shut up already i just cant wait for more BLACK ON BLACK CRIME ooooowwweeeee but ya both these boys think to much of themselves

mmaboxingfan2 Says, in 2-19-2012 at 21:35:20 from    

Rashad makes me laugh. Jon jones is full of himself… saying automatically he will beat rashad and is looking past rashad. Jon jones acts like a classy guy but makes alot of mistakes by contradicting himself. Why does jon jones say what he feels?

bobo Says, in 2-19-2012 at 22:28:50 from    

man i want to like bones but i just cant.. rashid is right he is an up himself cock who needs to be humbled.. i cant wait til he fully develops and is forced to go heavy weight.. jones vs people like Mir, JDS, Velasquez… would like to see him throw any of them about

jeff_figmb Says, in 2-19-2012 at 23:09:21 from    

Rashad is the biggest tool in MMA hands down! Remember the Ultimate fighter when he would come out dancing, bobbin his head like a rapstar haha! Matt Hughes had to tell him to stop trying so hard to be someone… Any ways, he’s never been himself, hel’s always been a huge fake ass wanna be… Jones is chill cause he knows he’s gonna crush rashad. This fight will be quick and easy for bones…

Tempted Says, in 2-19-2012 at 23:34:47 from    

Rashad might be able to call him out but unfortunately Jones is going to kill him in the ring.

REEMDAMACHINE Says, in 2-19-2012 at 23:43:08 from    

Jones has a VISION & that is to be the BEST ever this sport has seen.. The guys is NOT full of himself at all, he just has GOALS & feel very CONFIDENT about himself & his HYPE. If you go into any fight or game questioning your skills or talent your DONE already. You have to INSTILL in yourself that you are the BEST there is.. PERIOD.

Rashad acted like a little JEALOUS kid & guess what? He’s gonna get a beatdown by JJ, MARK IT DOWN. He don’t need to have a PHYSCOLOGY major like Rashad, JJ will bring rashads ass back to REALITY.. RECOGNIZE.. WARRRRRRRRRR JJ!!!

jessop Says, in 2-19-2012 at 23:54:40 from    

I’ve met Jon Jones at a UFC party… he’s a total prick. That’s what Rashad is talking about. You guys see him for what he/UFC wants you to see.

dana whites mom Says, in 2-20-2012 at 00:09:38 from    

man rashad can mess with someone:

You own a Bently

Remember my face when I wouldnt let you uP? you tried to do the “123″

Every you are trying to say already has been said

Tell me since you know better than anyone else what is my mind set

Jones needs to keep watching the secret and make a new vison board if he attracted rashad besting him in a verbal sparing match

Fightfan Says, in 2-20-2012 at 00:25:53 from    

I wouldn’t be surprised in the least if we see here, the whole leaving the jackson camp, all of this as something that has been concocted by evans, jones, jackson,etc as a means to build this event to a fever pitch. I wouldn’t be shocked if Jon and Rashad regularly talk and whole ‘feud’ is staged.
I’m not implying that the actually fight is fake in the least but I doubt little if any of what we see is a legit between these 2. This is a prime example of going wwe, take 2 people who are close, have one of the 2 take the other’s title shot and betray them .Verbally spar for months and months on end, build the antiipation and drama to a fever pitch. Go head to head and with all that build up which means high viewership and ppv buys = alot of $ for both.

steamer Says, in 2-20-2012 at 01:19:52 from    

only thing that matters is the fight, this pissing contest will be irrelevant afterward

crookz Says, in 2-20-2012 at 01:28:42 from    

what are u ppl saying fact jon jones is going to beat the brakes off evans. i could care a less about his personality. i think ya’ll put too much emphasis on things like that. all that matters is how he performs in the ring because we the fans pay to watch this. so plain and simple all i care about is if my money went to waste or not. jones could be arrogant like mayweather and i think thats what he was sort of implying. rashard is very irritating so much negativity it hurts my head listening to him. jones is always preaching makes me yawn. but at the end of the day jones is a great fighter who i like to see battle in the cage. evans is some scrub who i never really cared for so this fight is gonna be satisfying.

Screenx3 Says, in 2-20-2012 at 01:52:46 from    

Rashad can say what he wants, this fight won’t go past the second round. Rashad has a chin made out of baby food, he’s gonna get popped, try to go back to his wrestling game, and get his ass choked out. War Jones!!!!!

I could watch this bickering s*** all day.

marvelous mad madam mim Says, in 2-20-2012 at 02:36:31 from    

Ali could talk like that because he had a personality and was charismatic. Jon sounds like a robot who watches way too many movies. He has the mind of a brainwashed child. What’s next he’s going to go off on how he loves his black heritage this and that while being married to a white woman. Jones biggest problem is that he is a know-it-all. No one can tell Jon anything cause he already has it figured out. My brother who is a doctor is the same way, these types of people make me sick because in reality they know nothing. They are mindless repeaters. The greatest enemy of knowledge is not the ignorant, it is those under the illusion of knowledge.

doolan007 Says, in 2-20-2012 at 02:54:37 from    

Winging Bitches the lot of you!! If any thing he could be more cocky as a fighter! I love when fighters beleive in themselves and back it up at work! What do you winging Bitches want from the champ??? i just cant wait to see rashad and all you WINGING BITCHES set straight!! Ha

two self centered/ignorant aholes talking to each other, and pretending to be philosopher

warrior1978 Says, in 2-20-2012 at 03:23:35 from    

I don’t know what to think of Rashad. I got to meet him in Atl. at UFC 88 at an afterparty and he was real cool and seemed down-to-earth and took pictures with everyone. Regardless of how he perceives what Jon is saying, its a douchebag thing to do when you’re all, “oh, remember in practice that one day when I dominated you and didn’t let you up?!” Its like he’s playing the role of the high school football team’s star player giving the freshman a swirly in the bathroom.

EM Says, in 2-20-2012 at 03:56:42 from    

Could this be staged? Is it possible that these two got together on a Saturday night and discussed how they can make big money on a fight between the two of them? Both were in Jackson’s camp. One is a premier veteran the other a premier young fighter. Both are good arguers. Both want the big money. One defected from Jackson’s camp, and the other stayed. One is the heavyweight champ, and the other was. This is a remake of Empire Strikes Back; I was waiting for Rashad to say, “I am your father Jon.” Good v. Evil, betrayal, deceit, gluttony, vanity, anger, see a pattern here? These two guys understand the game, and at the end they will hug each other tell the other they made millions. I now know why I like to watch Nick Diaz; there’s no bullshit in how he feels about his opponent. Yes, he makes lots of money, but it seems more of a byproduct of the truth he brings. F*** both of these players; they are miniature Don Kings.

Thxer Says, in 2-20-2012 at 05:04:02 from    

Jones IS kind of a douche. But being the best fighter in MMA at the age of 24 it would be hard to be entirely humble. So while I dislike his fake douchiness, I can appreciate that he’s trying to show a positive and humble image.

Unfortunately, saying things like “Yea I drive a 2012 Bentley, but I want to provide more for my family”, and randomly adding “I have a picture with my foot in Rampage’s mouth, but I don’t put it up” are a good indication of who he really is.

I can’t wait for this fight. I don’t think Rashad can pull it off, but I hope he puts up a good fight!

Beary04 Says, in 2-20-2012 at 05:56:41 from

man lot of little essays written here.

rashadfan Says, in 2-20-2012 at 07:57:04 from    

@Trizkel – Rashad is cocky but he never claimed to be humble. He’s calling Jones out because Jones claims to be humble. I like them both and I hope that it’s not a 12 second fight.

kbf Says, in 2-20-2012 at 08:02:47 from    

Jones never talks crap he’s a student that learns from his wins. Jones is who he is. When Ali said he was the greatest many people hated him and couldn’t wait to see him loose. Rashad is another great fighter but he is clearly jealous of Jones for several reasons. Rashad was the champ at Jacksons and may feel he mentored Jones. Jones is now champ and Jackson chooses Jones over him. Jones has yet to be koed. Perhaps Rashad would change his attitude towards Jones if Machida knocked him out but till then he hates him. I like both these guys and hope they have a good clean fight with good clean refereeing and non-controversial judging.

Jim Says, in 2-20-2012 at 08:26:07 from    

If you’re constantly talking about how you’re trying to be this great role model, trying to change the world and you helped this and that person – it’s really your ego talking.
You don’t have to change the world or be this great role model who everyone should look to and copy. Just be the person you want to be – be the best you can be for your own sake without self grandeur and you’ll see that you can influence just as many people without trying so hard to be this knight in shining armor.

DD Says, in 2-20-2012 at 08:33:41 from    

Jones “because you see i dont have all the riches”
Evans: “Dont you drive a bentley”
Jones: “Yer 2012 model…”

RickNasty Says, in 2-20-2012 at 09:13:24 from    

I totally agree with you; after he lost to Machida he was humbled himself. I didn’t like him before that because he acted almost like Jon Jones is acting right now.. What comes around goes around and Karma’s a bitch. Even if Rashad doesn’t beat him, Jon Jones isn’t God. Machida opened holes in Jones’ game, and Rashad should do the same. War Rashad

jon is so full of himself and arrogant.right on for rashad calling him out on that,rashad for the WIN.

bizzle Says, in 2-20-2012 at 13:57:58 from    

funny everyone bashing Jones, and for what? You guyz act like ur doing something so much more important.. why all the negativity? you finding anything to hate on him for no reason, because you feel hes fake and the way he comes off u dont agree or whatever. I ask what makes u such a better person? at least he trying to be humble and positive,give him, that, and all shard and the lot of u hating are just being negative and shard is my fave fighter, but truly the problem u guyz have lies in urself not Jones

@mma Says, in 2-20-2012 at 14:04:20 from    

We’re fans of who they are as fighters. Arrogant or not; are you really trying to emulate either fighter for anything other than their fighting ability? No.

I don’t think Jones will be beat. But anything can happen.

Swordsmansmith Says, in 2-20-2012 at 15:36:22 from    

Jones via tko by elbows or subbmission by choke. Rashad is going down as easily as the former champs before him in 2011. IF Rashad doesnt get “injured” again delaying the fight. Rashad is scared of the best LHW fighter to date and he should be.

bcizzo Says, in 2-20-2012 at 18:30:17 from    

yo bruno and fellow mmatko users!
heres the vid of rashad being interviewed by skippy that someone mentioned. class act. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=nXZ-qB0N5yg#t=317s

Tomd Says, in 2-20-2012 at 20:43:27 from    

After watching the exchange that happened between Haye and Chisora its a breath of fresh air to hear two fighters talking with a sense of decorum and respect despite the fact that they seriously dislike eachother. Boxing is on the way out.

Sunfish Hero Says, in 2-20-2012 at 21:53:07 from    

Rashad is right about one thing, Jones WILL lose eventually. I don’t think he believes he’ll be the one to do it, but Jones is just a mystery right now. Someone will figure him out, LHW is highly competitive and it’s only a matter of time.

Now, Jones was full of it when he said he doesn’t have the riches, maybe at one point his was poor and destitute, just not anymore. But with that in mind, one person here tell me you wouldn’t buy a nice ass car if you had his money. One f****** person judge him for that. Damn right he can buy a fancy car AND take care of his family based entirely on his accomplishments. Jones hasn’t had a single easy fight since entering the octagon, his road to the title was one of the most star studded you could put together. Are we really going to condemn him for SPENDING THE MONEY HE EARNED? I think hes arrogant, I think someone will expose him eventually, but right now he’s on top of the world and he’s beaten EVERYONE worth beating at LHW except Rashad.

Nora Penefrin Says, in 2-20-2012 at 23:02:05 from    

that was more of a therapy session than interview. entertaining, nonetheless.

The Funky FRO Says, in 2-20-2012 at 23:48:12 from    

Christ guys, what the f*ck would you all say if you got guys like Shad just pulling every card known to man…. you all are hatin on Jones for answering? Does he ever initiate any kind of personal attack on people? You gotta have confidence to be in this sport! People try and call him out on it but give the guy a break, seriously. Man I wish I was as chill as the dude…. If he didn’t handle the ‘loss’ against Hammill with dignity (I’d personally be PEAKING if it were me)….I dunno what class and dignity is. I think alot of us need to STFU and really chill on the hating and appreciate the dude for the person he is in and out of the ring.

eucanlykthis Says, in 2-21-2012 at 04:16:38 from    

i agree DD. he is one of the very best ever, but i wanna see his MASSIVE head get knocked clean off his shoulders.

eucanlykthis Says, in 2-21-2012 at 04:23:21 from    

acting like your s*** dont stink doesnt make u a good role model. it makes u an arrogant douche that noone likes. i hope he ends up face down ass up. all the proof i need that jones is a fuckhead is when he dropped an unconcious machida on his face instead of letting him down. that disgraceful. greet role model for the kids. lol

MonsterJujitsu Sensei Says, in 2-21-2012 at 09:27:03 from    

From watching this I can tell that Evans doesn’t believe he can win. Not once did he tell Bones that he was taking that belt. All that hating from him means that he is a serious bitchass MFer. Bones straight up told him that his storyline is bigger than him. Hilarious.

fap Says, in 2-21-2012 at 10:59:27 from    

Jones f****** contradicted himself lovely. what a fake.

k91st Says, in 2-21-2012 at 17:00:51 from    

Rashad was reprimanded by Matt Hughes for being a show boater or something like that and Rashad vs Rampage what about that

k91st Says, in 2-21-2012 at 17:08:22 from    

I like how the threads all was go after a persons personality. so what if he is cocky and rashad doesn’t like it so what. Rashad is becoming a bitter old man. Jones is a 24 yr old still growing physically and mentally. I recall George Forman interviews when he would explain what he was and then what he became. Fight forget the hype

Dave Says, in 2-22-2012 at 00:55:41 from    

Jones is Fake!
I think jones is an amazing fighter but I get that feeling that he is fake and very selfish. he is full of himself a little too much.

Niv Says, in 2-22-2012 at 13:59:09 from    

Wow this is simply amazing! I can’t believe how many people hate on Jones, it’s really sad because it seems like jealousy to me.

The kid is not a fake, it’s just very obvious that he’s inexperienced and awkward in expressing himself. He has loads of talent and is extremely confident in his own abilities, absolutely nothing wrong with him saying he’s shooting for the stars in my books.

Rashad is setting him up constantly and his inexperience shows. Less than 2 years ago this kid was completely unknown and now he’s thrust into a spotlight.

I wish at 24 years old I could afford a Bentley, he says he wants to get all of that for his family and more, what’s the problem here guys?

I wish the guy well, I think he’s a genuine good guy and he’ll be liked more as he gains more experience public speaking.

junglerottjim Says, in 2-22-2012 at 17:06:02 from    

cant stand jones as a person. pompous blow heart

junglerottjim Says, in 2-22-2012 at 17:09:46 from    

this is terrible i think this will be the first time in my life i am going to root for rashad evans….
