Are you going to watch? What's interesting in the backstory for you?

looks like the first fight was pretty entertaining

Nunes rocked but that was a wild fight - could have gone either way.

Jones picked Gussy apart with kicks then lay on him and he couldn’t get up - old school jiujitsu right there.

New school BJJ Ryan Hall met old school BJJ BJ Penn and finished him in seconds - time to retire BJ - please!

Cyborg was neglecting her defense in an attempt to knock Nunes out. She ended up getting hit more.

Jones seems to be a dirty fighter using banned substances for greater performance.

See this speculation..."Mibolerone aka Cheque Drops (CD) is the drug Jon Jones was taking, CD has a half life of 2-4 hours and it's very popular with fighters and powerliftes (Jones has connections with powerlifters), CD is often cut with Turinabol because they're similar (except CD is MUCH more potent and has a much shorter half life)."

It's said he popped for a small amount of turinabol because his last dose was contaminated with turinabol.

He may have used peds, and using them might tarnish his reputation. But, that doesn't mean he didn't win the bout. On that evening, he was the better fighter,

Dunno about the cheating. Competitors will always use some substance that isn't quite detectable.


Anyway, I like Jones for his creativity. No one else since Anderson Silva seems to have that

This article claims there are new guys that good

Would love to see it if it's true
