Id rather see rampage fight shogun or griffin again than get a shot at jones. I don't see him doing anything against jones and don't think beating hamill earns you a title shot. Id like to see Mir go against the JDS/Carwin loser

Problem is, who else deserves a shot against Jones? Rashad does, but the timing is just not right. After that?

timing or avoiding?? I say Jones is avoiding him!! I am not sure as to why but it is pretty suspicious how he can fight one guy with the injury but not someone else..

I think he is too but I dont know why either because we all know Evans has a suspect chin and I think a Jones elbow or kick to Evans face would send him crashing to the canvas. I do feel for Jones, Im pretty sure if he wasnt scared of Rua hes def not scared of Evans.

Maybe something happened in practice that we don't know about...

Rampage isn't a good matchup with Jones. Jones would kill him. I think Rampage-Griffin 2 is inevitable. A great mid-title fight Main Event.

I agree. Jones is ducking rashad for sure.

For sure? Since when are opinions "for sure"? Maybe he wasn't medically cleared, which is what happened. After his fight with Shogun he is tested and run through a medical test. If anything arrises they bring him into a specialist. They did. The specialist said he cannot fight for a period of time. How is that "ducking"?

Where are you getting your info from? Jones is cleared to resume training and fighting, but pretended to opt for surgery. Then once the UFC had scheduled Rashad for a fight with someone else, he has since changed his stance and is ready to fight. Just not a fight with Rashad...

Jones said he needed surgery and then the doctor told him he didn't. The doctor medically cleared him and told him he could resume training on June 11th. Jone 11th to August 6th is 8 weeks. Enough time for Jones to train for the fight. He's ducking him. Fact.

I agree, I have no idea why Jones is ducking Evans. Looks like Evans knows something that the rest of the world doesnt know about Jones. Evans is very confident that he will get past Davis and finally get his shot at the title.

Oh by the way. Welcome back Jimbo! :)

The Davis fight scares me because I badly want to see Rashad fight Jones. I don't want Davis to ruin it for me.

Unless ring rust dominates Evans I dont see Davis beating Evans. Evans is the better wrestler and striker with way more experience. Davis has a long way to go before reaching that level but will eventually.

Yes but Rashad has a suspect chin as well... And the rust leads to lack of cardio in the cage... You can't substitute that kind of cardio for anything else.
