Tweet Pin It Ronda Rousey Of Strikeforce Talks Violence And Arm Bars Anderson Silva Judes Body Paint Contest On TV Show. 26 Comments Matt F September 19, 2011 Interesting…thanks Bruno. Log in to Reply Krio September 19, 2011 Everybody already know he only wins because of REACH advantage, if he was 6’0 – 72 reach we would not be champion right now Log in to Reply cigronne September 19, 2011 The host forgot to say his penis is 13 inches, he is well-rounded in all areas Log in to Reply cigronne September 19, 2011 Krio, the kid besides being very big is extremely talented, let’s be honest here, not everything is reach advantage in his case Log in to Reply Krio September 19, 2011 Yes you are right he is good but REACH does play a huge factor in fighting, Anderson Silva has 77 reach in middleweight that’s huge for little middleweight people Log in to Reply Dirty Yt Boy September 19, 2011 you gotta wonder how long he can stay at LHW. he’s still young and i’m assuming he still has a bit of size/weight to gain (eg. rory macdonald who has not totally ‘filled in’ yet) i’d be a betting man to say that we see him either becoming a dual HW/LHW champ or going up and staying there in the next couple years. Log in to Reply Georges St. Pierre September 19, 2011 Could have sworn I heard Don Frye do an advertisment as I was about to back out of the screen, went back and never heard it after… anybody else hear that? Log in to Reply goodshit September 19, 2011 he wouldnt be champ now if Shogun wasnt commin off surgery, every time he has surgery he does shitty like against Machida1 then he comes back strong next fight Machida2 and Forrest2 after Jones fight. I would also like to know how the fight with Bonner would have ended if Jones didnt smash the back of his head with that retarded elbow shit. Until he actually learns how to use his reach i have no respect for his shitty style. Log in to Reply africaunity September 19, 2011 Jon jones is great in MMA but if sport science wanted to talk of someone who used his reach and was really excellent in striking, tey should have talked of lennox lewis Honestly JJones is good but lewis was in another galaxy Stop showing MMA fighters as ultimate strikers please Log in to Reply dr gru September 19, 2011 cigronne is a FAG Log in to Reply RearNakedSmoke September 19, 2011 I’m sorry, but this “Sports Science” is just the dumbest shit. They could have just said “Hey, Jon Jones has long arms”. It would have saved us all some time. Log in to Reply shocktime September 19, 2011 @ all the ignorant Jone Jones haters, such as Krio above. Fact is the guy is a beast! He’s is fighting and wrecking professionally trained fighters like nothing! These are grown man he’s destroying! Not like he’s in there with 5th graders that are 4’6 and weigh 90lbs. Stop hating and give respect where respect is due. Log in to Reply Yoplait September 19, 2011 I can’t wait until he beats down Rampage. What will the excuse be then? Log in to Reply sheateater September 19, 2011 Im with shocktime, give Jones some respect! To say he has a shitty style is ridiculous! Maybe you dont like the guys character but thats different. The ESPNshow is hyped but interesting, comparing the spinning the elbow to an apache helicopter’s blades was great, for kids… Log in to Reply murell September 19, 2011 shocktime,what are u talking about? all you haters? one maybe,besides, it’s true,reach is a huge factor, thats why anderson silva does so well,he has the reach in striking and he can easily wrap his legs around someone with the body lock, one of his signature moves,do you really think either one would do as well if they were 5″10? Log in to Reply sooooopernate September 19, 2011 @ Krio dude you’re so right, that’s the why Struve is the champ too. oh… wait… Log in to Reply NotVinnieJones September 19, 2011 Boo hoo! Jones keeps winning! Waahh! Thats how some people sound (you know who you are…and yes, that’s how you sound). Its going to be sweet when Jones uses his “shitty” elbow to smash low-life Rampage into next week. Log in to Reply PowerTele September 19, 2011 Bruno is so nice to put up this site even though most of you guys just hate. Thank you Bruno. Bruno: No problem. Happy someone watched it. Slow news day. Log in to Reply ikson September 19, 2011 LOL! Sooooooopernate that was funny. There goes Krio and murell’s lame A$% reach excuse. Noobs. SIlva and Jones dominate because they are simply on another level. PERIOD! Log in to Reply Horus September 20, 2011 @goodshit… Shogun didn’t just lose against Bones… he got straight whooped, beat up… totally dominated… so surgery or not, Jones is just better. No matter how many what if’s, Bones won and will continue to win for a while. And when someone finally figures out his loopholes, he will adapt and come back even harder…. he’s just THAT type of fighter. And the craziest thing is he’s young… which means he’s got way more learning and developing to do, scary thought. Log in to Reply jonnyx September 20, 2011 @ikson you saying reach and height have nothing to do with fighting? sure anderson and bones are talented but their reach advantage have a lot to do with their winning ability or at least the way they use that within their styles in order to win. Log in to Reply Corey September 20, 2011 Funny how they repeatedly showcase the guy landing an illegal spinning elbow to the back of an opponents head. “He uses his ridiculous genetic advantage to win fights using illegal strikes!” Wow. You would think they’d use better footage. The guy is a very unique and skilled striker. I’m not taking away from that, but I don’t necessarily like the guy either. I hope rampage knocks him out. I don’t see it happening, but I want it too. Log in to Reply ... September 20, 2011 his spinning elbow is faster than the blades of an apache helicopter? that sounds pretty bs. so if jones stands there and keeps spining in 360 degree circles non stop and i stick my arm in between will it get chopped off?…lol. Log in to Reply DilleyWilley September 20, 2011 Jones is an amazing fighter. How someone can dispute that I don’t understand. He in due time will surpass Anderson Silva, I have no doubts in my mind about that. Log in to Reply paddedummy September 23, 2011 Yes but Davinci was talking about europeans. Monkey arms is the reason Jones and Silva win. Struve just sucks too much to use his genetic advantage. Log in to Reply Shinka MMA September 23, 2011 wait… faster then a helicopter’s blades? … I think not. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
