Saturday night at UFC on FOX 4, four fighters compete knowing that the most exciting winner gets a shot at UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones.
Mauricio Rua vs. Brandon Vera
Lyoto Machida vs. Ryan Bader
Jones is initimately familiar with each, as he has beaten all four men decisively, and took to Twitter recently to offer his thoughts.
First, Jones retweeted a Joe Lauzon quip.

So, @danawhite said whoever wins most impressively Saturday at #UFConFox gets a shot at @JonnyBones... I'm preemptively forfeiting my shot.

Ill tell you my predictions for this weekend if you tell me yours. ???
My prediction: I got Shogun by decision after a predominant striking match. Vera could make it more interesting if he uses take downs
I could see Machida stopping the fight, out classing Bader with good foot work and fast strikes. Bader needs to turn it into a brawl
One thing Vera does very well is fight in 2 different stances. Its hard to prepare for what you don't know is coming
Bader has a fast and powerful overhand right. The same punch shogun finished Lyoto with.. man you just never know with MMA. gotta love it
Out of the four guys Lyoto was the toughest puzzle, brandon had the biggest mouth, bader felt the strongest, shogun lasted the longest. lol
Just having a little fun. I really do want to wish all 4 guys good luck this weekend. Do your best, Ill do mines on the 1st.
