I say he hangs it up
He's had drug, alcohol and domestic abuse issues. He's always been known to be lazy in his training and not really give a shit, relying on natural talent and "coming off the couch" for many fights.

I say he hangs it up. He's already peaked and been a World Champion [several times over]. He doesn't have anything left to prove, and he can't compete with the current top dogs.

You might be right but if it goes the distance (which I think it will) then as long as Gus keeps the cardio up he could pressure him like he was meant to after the 3rd last fight.

Jon says he has been working alot on his boxing tho so there's a factor.

Also think that would only matter on the cards tho, no way Jones will KO or TKO Gus with his hands.

Never say never. I'm, just hoping for a good fight, assuming Gus accepts it, which all sign point to him doing. And that Gus will fuck him up, even though it goes against my prediction.

UFC Welterweight Alex Oliveira was injured by a hand grenade in Brazil on Christmas Eve.

Quote:
One guy came up and pointed a gun at my nephew’s face, and that’s when people started pushing each other,” Oliveira told the website. “They had machetes, knives, a grenade. They threw a grenade in my direction. Fragments flew to my leg and my foot.
He was taken to a local hospital where he underwent surgery to remove grenade fragments from his leg.

Cain Velasquez vs Francis Ngannou

Is a crazy match up...if Cain is anywhere near what he used to be he will win but obviously after Injuries and a long layoff who knows where's he's at that's a dangerous fight for his comeback though.

Ngannou is his own worst enemy. If his mental game is on point, he could maul Valasquez.

On a side note, I have a truther friend, Ian Jacklin, who got to meet and train with Cain, because he is a longtime friend / opponent of Cain's coach, Javier Mendez. Ian is a former World Champion kickboxer and actor. Now he is a vaccine activist. He also got to attend the recent UFC on FOX 31 event in Milwaukee and meet and train with Duke Roufus, who has trained Alan Belcher, Stephan Bonnar, Matt Mitrione, Anthony Pettis, Jens Pulver, Ben Rothwell, Ben Askren and Tyron Woodley.

Dana White gave Gustafsson the option to postpone his fight with Jones until March, but he declined. That would just give Jones more time to juice.


It looks like Kamaru Usman will be facing Tyron Woodley for the Welterweight title at UFC 235. If Woodley is still injured, Usman will be facing someone else for the interim belt. They haven't said who.
