 I agree that Jones will go down as the greatest ever. Thought so for a while.

Phil Baroni losing 6 consecutive UFC fights is a record that I don't think will be broken for a longgggg time, if ever.

yeah, I'm thinking more long term. i think Jones is devastating and unless something drastic changes, he is going to start racking them up.i also think Jones will be fighting more often. nate and jones both fought 4 times in 2011. Nate has only fought once in 2012 and i don't think he's got a scheduled fight coming up? Jones on the other hand, has fought twice, and has 151 with hendo coming up. if he stays on track he could easily get another fight on new years, or somewhere close, and end up fighting 4 times again this year.Based on their fight styles, I see jones getting more FOTN than nate by a long shot (two of his last 3 fights are FOTN and 3 of Nates were over 3 years ago), and since he's more active he could take that title.

 Jones has two FOTNs. I think Diaz will probably get one more before Jones gets three more.

They really need to ditch the Taktarov vs Macias record for fastest sub. The bout wasn't a work, but Macias blatantly threw the match, you can tell by the look on Olegs face that he wasn't impressed and wasn't expecting it. Macias and Oleg where friends and had no interest in fighting each other. Joel Sutton and Macias were the only two alternates for the event, and Sutton couldn't continue due to injury leaving no one but Macias available to face Oleg in the semifinal. In retrospect, even if Macias had just thrown in the towel at the start of the bout it would have felt less dirty than what he did.

If you go to Joe Lauzon's ufc.com page he has 5 Submission of the Nights, not 4. He got them for Guillard, Warburton, Melendez, Stephens, Ruediger. And Terry Etim also has 4.
