Jones vs. Belfort proved one thing

And that one thing is that Lil Nog, should he ever rise to the top at LHW, would give Jones a LOT of trouble. I'm actually surprised that seemingly no one has talked about this.

 

If Lil Nog had Jones in the same position Belfort did, you can rest assured that he would be bringing Jones' arm back to Brazil as a souvenir.

Lil Nog is one of my fav LHW's but I don't think he would have a chance. His TDD isn't that great despite it's recent improvements and his JJ is overrated imo. He has good stand up but he suffers from too big of a reach advantage and isn't athletic enough to really pose a big threat to JJ.

Davis and Bader both beat Lil Nog...

Bader beat lil nog...he has NO CHANCE at jones

 

have you seen jones against Shogun and Bader? Those 2 guys are better than little nog and Jones annihilated them both

 

It's not the same caliber of fighter...you haven't watched many fights if you think little nog beats Jones. Anyone has a CHANCE of beating a fighter, but it's so unlikely that it wouldn't be worth booking.

 

Also, Greg Jackson is huge on gameplanning and he would insist that Jones keeps it standing

Nog would never get it to the ground. Jones allowed Vitor to pull guard because he felt safe. Nog will never rise to the top and never threaten Jones.

 

Are you stupid? Vitor was respectable enough to let Jones off the hook go learn MMA instead of watching it, you'll maybe see how easily he could have snapped that arm. You clearly don't know much about MMA.

 

Lil nog would give Jones a good fight but you might be right he wouldn't make it that far at least not any time soon. By then Jones will be fighting in HW probably.

Little Nog would give Jones a good fight? You're joking, right? Lil Nog will always live in his brother's shadow and never eventuate to anything.

 

Jones has tooled guys 10x better than Lil Nog and would absolutely punish him.

 

You clearly know nothing about MMA AND you have aids.

Shogun and Bader both have NOTHING to offer JBJ. Their styles are just absolutely worthless against a guy like Jones.

 

Lil Nog has a style that could challenge JBJ. Jones has showed that his stand-up is anything but elite, and he has also shown that he leaves himself open to submissions while on top.

 

Jon would not (T)KO Nog on the feet, and if it went to the ground Lil Nog would always be looking to set up a submission. If Belfort can do it, you better believe Nog can as well.

 

Don't sleep on this matchup, people. Styles make fights.

Duh... Vitor is alot more dangerous than lil nog...

 

Lil Nog has nothing to offer Jones.. He'll get picked apart on the feet easily.

How has he done that? Every elite striker he's fought got tooled on the feet.

 

Who? Fat, slow, out-of-shape, fresh-off-surgery Shogun? Or fat, slow, out-of-shape Rampage (even if that is a little redundant)? Or Machida, the guy who beat him standing in round 1, but ultimately lost in round 2 after abandoning his gameplan, getting elbowed into oblivion on the ground, and then getting choked out?

 

Just because JBJ does spinning **** doesn't mean his stand-up is elite.

PLEASE stop making those excuses for Shogun... It's just not even fun to laugh at anymore.

 

As for Machida, round 1 could have gone either way honestly, the real reason people were so amazed is that it was the most offense anyone had mounted on Jones at the time, and I say this as a HUGE Lyoto fan. Round 2, elbows or not, he got dropped standing and choked. We've never seen Jones look bad on his feet.

As I said, Machida went full retard in Round 2. If he had just stuck to what he did in Round 1 he would have never been dropped.

 

And sorry, but as a Shogun "hater", the fact remains that Shogun always fights like **** after his knee injuries. Say whatever you want to, but there is a tremendous difference between a normal Shogun (Pride, Machida 1 and 2), and a Shogun coming off a knee injury. He usually needs two full camps/fights after an injury to get back to normal.
