The Underground News, Editor
 

There are a few figures in sports whose excellence elveates the entire sport. Muhammad Ali brought extraordinary attention to boxing, as did Jordan to basketball, and Pele to soccer. Jon Jones appears to be that man in MMA, the one who breaks through to mainstream celebrity, and eevates the sport along with it.

Thus who Jones fights next is not just interesting, it is important.

Jones is likely to fight either Dan Henderson, who is coming off a win over Shogun, or the winner of Rashad Evans vs. Phil Davis at UFC on FOX 2 on Jan. 28.

In an interview with the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Savage Dog Show” Jones’ trainer Mike Winkeljohn gamed each of the possinle next opponents. “They all present different challenges,” said Winkeljohn. “I’m not sure which one’s the biggest. Dan’s big right hand is always a big challenge. [He’s] somebody that could be able to close that gap and find a hole and try to get to Jon’s chin. That’s probably the dilemma with him, but he’s small. I don’t think he can outwrestle Jon. I think Jon beats him everywhere. I don’t think he can hit [Jones] with that right hand.”

“I think Jon kills Phil Davis with his standup. I think Phil Davis is a tremendous wrestler and I’m sure his standup’s going to get better daily. We’ll see how much better it’s improved when he fights Rashad. That will tell me a lot about where he’s going with his training and what he’s doing.”

“I think Rashad Evans is probably capable of closing the gap, if he wants to, faster than anybody out there in trying to strike with Jon. But I think [against] all of them, Jon’s got the ability to just pick them apart from long range like he has with all of his other fights and break them down and then finish the fight when it’s time.”

“I think he’s prepared to fight Rashad. I think mentally, I don’t have a problem with where his head’s at with Rashad. He believes in his heart that he can beat Rashad. So no matter what Rashad says, it becomes posturing. … I think Jon sees that and I’m not worried about it.”

With Hendo, his opponents are well aware of the H-Bomb, yet Hendo still manages to connect at some point in the fight. And all it takes is one to change the tide.

For this reason, he's truly a fightening opponent for anyone regardless of weight class.

 JBJ uses anderson silva / ed soares style fight ducking skills to avoid Hendo ... Hell, he has already been working on his fight ducking with Rashad.

 Wow, wonder why my post was deleted. My guess it was one of the quasi-celebrity mods we have here.

stonepony - Common sense. Notice the whiners can't make anything resembling an argument? All they can do is get angry and stamp their feet because truth hurts and they don't like it.

Henderson can put anybody to sleep with that punch. But only if he can land it. Fact is that Machida is the only guy with the skillset with which to land more than just the odd fluke punch against Jones.

Henderson can charge in and tie him up, and they can see where the fight goes from there (Chael can too). But, he can't land that H-Bomb from the clinch. It's just reality. The obsessed Pride kiddies need to take a deep breath and try to think things through for once. Dan is amazing. But the odds that he can charge in and land that H-bomb on JJ, are just remote at best. He'd have to win it another way.


Completely agreed about Dan and Jones. However, is there anyone else but you who think its Pride kiddies holding Hendo up to esteem right now?

You hold Machida in high regard. Who derailed the Machida era again?

Bingo.. Every fighter knows about it.. and not many can do a fucking thing about it.
Not many. Machida might be able to avoid it, and JBJ would most likely avoid it. IMO.


Anderson, Rogerio, Misaki, Kondo, Shields, Rampage, a quite a few others already did.

This reminds me of the great baseball pitcher Curt Schilling. He would tell the batter (insert BIGNAME player here) "im going to throw you all fast balls." He would then give those fackers all fast balls. More often than not batters struck out. Phone Post

LOL, you've said some retarded stuff in the past but you've really out done yourself on this post. You might need to back away from the internets for awhile, you're losing it...

Winkeljohn is more annoying than Bones Jones himself.
