Jones v. Evans

Unread postby Govbarney » Tue Apr 17, 2012 3:05 pm

There is a ton of hype surrounding this match, yet everything I read (to include what the Vegas Odds Makers are saying) tells me that Evans will be destroyed.

I will be in San Fran for the Tribe/Oak series, and a Springsteen show next week, should I cave to the hype and find a Sports Bar showing this fight, or is it not worth my time?

It's going to be insanely difficult for anyone to beat Jon Jones. Same as it is with Silva and St Pierre. All three are just so athletic and technically sound. They don't make mistakes. Long legs and arms. Rashad's not gonna be able to use the same plan of attack he used against Phil Davis, playing it safe, staying outside and swooping in.

That all said, I can't wait for this one. The history between the guys ... Rashad is a formidable foe.

Jones is a monster will no real weakness. Except that he's a fucking prick.
Evans is always underestimated and will be ready.
I'm a huge Evans fan and think he has a legit chance. It's been awhile but they did trained together so I think that's big.
If Rashad weathers the early storm or can get a takedown in the 1st and keep Jones down for a little, look for this to be a war.
With the odds, i'm taking Evans for a few dollars.

Yeah I will have to make it a point to catch this fight, the history alone between these two is a great backdrop... besides its better then any main event boxing is offering up this month, even if its a mismatch.

I'm actually going to be in Vegas this weekend. Very, very fired up for this fight.
