Jon "Bones" Jones

Holy shit.

This dude is scary good. GSP/Silva good. And 23 years old. What he did to Shogun last night ... my God. Beat him within an inch of his life. Seemed to be smiling when did it. Not like Shogun is some slouch.

Seen like the last 3-4 UFC PPV's. I'm back on the train. Last night's performance by Jones was the most impressive performance I've ever seen.

Gonna take a Herculean effort for someone to beat this kid.

Good for the UFC ... they now have four marquee draws with Jones, Silva, GSP, and Lesnar. Dana White had to love watching that one last night.

I like UFC but don't know the first damn thing about it. Almost feels like there's not enough time to follow yet another sport.

How much are the PPVs? $50? Seems like a big money commitment for as often as these things roll around.

And, what the hell is this noise?:

Despite the victory, Jones was placed on indefinite suspension pending an X-ray, MRI and orthopedic clearance of his right hand.

Just PM'd you a site where you can watch em online for $3 and pay via Pay Pal.

On the suspensions, because of the violent nature of the sport ... you can't fight for X days after certain injuries.

He beat the living shit out of Rua. A dude that has made a career out of doing the same to others.

After reading the article I figured it was something like that. But, when you first read it, saying that the new champ got suspended is kind of like "what did he do? Roids or something?"

I think they should call it something other than a suspension.

Seems like a good practice for the league.

And $3 is definitely worth it.

Sad to see what happened Saturday. Shogun looked slow and tired. It had to be tough coming from almost a year off and rehabbing ANOTHER knee surgery. But I don't think even if he was healthy that it would have made much of a difference. Jones looked impressive.
