I think Rashads gameplan was to go the distance and not get beat up too much.

Mike44 Says, in 4-23-2012 at 10:26:45 from    

you fought a good fight Shad. you took his best shots and didnt get finished. I guess Jon Jones cant say you have a glass jaw no more haha

If there is a rematch it will be a much better fight. I think both of them were feeling the nerves and neither one of them really pushed it.

Fought a good fight? Did you watch anything past round 1? He was either suffering some ring rust for being away too long or his conditioning wasn’t up to what it usually was. His attack sucked and when he had an opening he didn’t press to take advantage of it. The one takedown they mention in this interview was actually Jones pulling guard. Terrible fight for Rashad. Never one of my favorites but usually respected him as a fighter. Saturday he fought not to get submitted or get beat up.

I hate this broad!! I never liked her!!! She does not kiss ass, she kisses cock all day every day.

Another thing, why the F*** does fox sports play the nfl theme song in ufc??

There’s no harmony between mma and that song. lol For the love of god please change it to something that suites better for my favourite sport.

Respect 4 Rashad… well done, but no luck at all…
plz, is anybody out there who can knock JBJ out…PLEAZE!

Biggle Says, in 4-23-2012 at 11:48:07 from    

@steeltown Its not the NFL music. Its the Fox Sports music. They use it for all of their sports telecasts. You just associate with NFL cuz thats where you’re used to hearing it. IF they gave UFC their own music then they would be the only sport on Fox to have their own and every other sport would still be sharing the same old theme. Thats not going to happen.

Mr. Obvious Says, in 4-23-2012 at 12:06:18 from    

@steeltown – I’m not sure how many times it has to be pointed out, but…..it’s not the NFL theme song. It’s the music that Fox plays for EVERY sport they broadcast. Races, MLB, NFL, UFC, you name it.

Gwizardry Says, in 4-23-2012 at 12:32:55 from    

Damn, Rashad- I hate seeing him like this man. Ever since Jon showed up at Jackson’s camp, Rashad new his career at this weight was in jeopardy. That’s why he tried to make the “No-fight-pact” because he knew what was up! Rashad is totally jealous of Jon, how could he not be.

Shabadoosh Says, in 4-23-2012 at 12:43:45 from    

Jones was the only one who got rocked in that boring ass fight. I’ve seen better lay’n’pray fights. And yo, they play that song during baseball and nascar too, it’s the FOX Sports song. Maybe one day when you start your own multi-billion dollar network, you can have some clout to maybe choose a more appropriate song for our ears… but if it’s rap or butt rock metal, I will F^cking Kill YOU!

I’d feed shogun to him or machida again. LOL, I just <3 watching his fight with Machida.

ThatDude Says, in 4-23-2012 at 13:23:43 from    

Its all good Rashad.. U went 5 rounds, didnt have a glass jaw, and probly landed more punches on Jon then anybody else has… If u fought like u did in the 1st round though out the whole fight, then You would have won. Next time try to execute the Gamplane

nesky818 Says, in 4-23-2012 at 13:46:54 from    

It’s not the NFL theme song. It’s a fox song.

Rashad looked good. Still a top three contender.

REEMDAMACHINE Says, in 4-23-2012 at 14:35:17 from    

SHAD LOST PERIOD, GOT HIS ASS WHOOPED. I’m amazed at you lame ass spinners, um yeah rashad went the distance, blah blah blah. Give me freaking break.. Go watch the video again.. WARRRRRRRRRRRRR JONES!!!

mscash Says, in 4-23-2012 at 16:06:11 from    

Rashad looked good?
Rashad fought a good fight?
Jon Jones asked Rashad what he would have after he lost.

Ok, to make a long argument shorter, I agree. Rashad looked good and he fought the good fight.

@Coldshot — How many former champs in a row do you need Jones to beat? Outclass? Dismantle?

Hey, hold tight, you can describe how Dan Henderson is Jones next big challenge.

A much younger Rashad out of the Blackzillians, a teacher, educated by pupil , loser is less threat than the new Dan Henderson threat?

I’m an MMA fan, but this next supposed threat fight for Jones is more Vince McMahon than any part of reality.

It reminds me of how GSP has introduced his next opponent as the biggest threat yet … type of blah, blah, blah, bull s***.

AussieMMA Says, in 4-23-2012 at 16:21:19 from    

At least they can stop pretending to hate each other now! Both Evans and Jones have just worked out how to make serious coin in this sport! That’s to create a sham rivalry! Believe me when i tell you their actually good friends!

mmasauce Says, in 4-23-2012 at 19:23:24 from    

He was in a fight?

Arod Says, in 4-23-2012 at 19:43:53 from    

Rashad look gas due to Jones be stronger then he used to be you can tell by his muscle mass when he entered the cage compared to past fight, and good for rashad jones has been making people look silly and to go the distance when everyone said Rashad would get out of the 3 is a good mile stone but no victory, Rashad needs that high altitude training for his cardio it showed in the 4 and 5 round

FedorFailsAgain Says, in 4-23-2012 at 19:52:13 from    

Jon Jones vs Rashad was some black on black crime! I think Jones should fight Overroids after he stops cheating and drops the PEDS use and shrinks back to his normal body mass that he entered Pride fighting with. Make it happen Uncle Dana!

mu0mu0mu Says, in 4-23-2012 at 19:59:04 from    

props to rashad for staying positive and to jones for being as good as he is. I do think that Jones is starting to lose the air of immortality. Machida hit him a bit, and Evans did too, and now everyone recognizes the he has moments when he is vulnerable to attack like anyone. Catching him wont be easy, but its doable.

drewblood Says, in 4-23-2012 at 20:16:33 from    

He shows a lot of professionalism and composure after getting thoroughly beaten… have to respect that.

Texas671 Says, in 4-23-2012 at 20:42:52 from    

I told yall Rashad bandwagon riders that he’d lose…Jones is the BEST

Texas671 Says, in 4-23-2012 at 20:45:32 from    

No props to Rashad! He kept running his mouth about beating Jones in sparring and how he will be champ again…LOL..LOSER

bob Says, in 4-23-2012 at 22:10:26 from    

Jon Jones = super tall dude whose head is up so high in the clouds making it impossible to hit, while his arms are so long that he can outpoint you easily. If Jones was 5 inches shorter, he would be knocked out by dozens of fighters; his fighting skills are only at the B/B+ level. He’s not bad, and he’s not great. The height/length + some ok/good fighting skills made him champion. Sick of Jones already – the sport will suffer.

Op_of_faith Says, in 4-24-2012 at 00:37:29 from    

Unlike people here, Rashad put HIMSELF at risk. Unlike people here, Rashad is professional in his loss. Respect.

Robbie Says, in 4-24-2012 at 01:43:51 from    

Hendo will knock his head out of those clouds. He’s slain giants before. Jones will be another notch in his belt.

The Llama Says, in 4-24-2012 at 09:35:29 from    

Rashad looked tiny in there..Not sayin he’s not a top LHW but would love to see him drop to 185 and challenge A. Silva.

The Llama Says, in 4-24-2012 at 09:40:26 from    

Also @ bob…STFU. Outpoint really he has put away everyone in front of him( except Rashad). Yeah he is freaky big and uses it but if he has no skill why can’t fighters with those skills get around his reach..

mmafan400 Says, in 4-24-2012 at 17:14:46 from    

@bob people have to stop saying this, if he was shorter, he wouldn’t have the same style. As in every martial art you adapt to YOUR body type.
