RodrigoRua Posted August 29, 2012 Report Share Posted August 29, 2012 Thats right folks !! Please note before reading this: SHORT NOTICE Some say everything happens for a reason and Im a truly believer on that, even in MMA Hendo is a legend, bad a*** and we all know his right hand and Sonnen is another bad a** that I have got a lot of respect to and I would watch Sonnen fight anytime, anywhere and against anyone and believe me or not (hard to see a brazilian saying it) I would root for Sonnen as well !! However both of these guys wouldnt be successful against Jones as Vitor might be !!! HENDO: Sorry, love Hendo but Im slo glad that fight aint happening ... That would be a very one sided fight just like a trainning section for Jones. Other than his right hand, that was nothing else to even concern Jones at all. Not mentioining Hendo would be gassed out completely by 3rd round and that would be horrible if you are in the cage with Jones. SONNEN: More chances than Hendo, true. But if Silva could do it so could Jones. Jones is way better than Silva on the ground, is a wrestler himself and I just dont see Sonnen being a legit threat either specially in a short notice. I dont think I gotta mention Jones size advantage and reach. Sonnen is a great wrestler but this it. I would bet on Sonnen IF Sonnen had his 3 or 4 month to make the weight and train for Jones. VITOR: He has all together for fight Jones. Great on nothing but a liitle bit of everything. Vitor has the experience and bout against big guys, speed, KO power, BJJ, Randy wrestling background trainning, foot work (Karate background), fast hands and a "clear mind" who tells him he got nothing to lose. He will be totally relaxed againt a Jones totally under pressure and booed by all the fans and chased by the media. I truly believe Jones current stress will affect his performance if isnt already affecting his trainning camp. Not mentiong that even Greg isnt happing his best MMA moments either .... Some of you may say "No, Sonnen was the most dangerous thats why he declined fighting Sonnen" which make sense I gotta say. However, this confidence on Vitor being "easier" could be a horrible decision for Jones. Anyway, I will accept any opinion as long as you explain and/or make a point. PS. Yes, I believe Jones most likely will beat Vitor (for the records) but I just think Vitor has more chance ATM than Sonnen and Hendo !! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
