just saw an ad for shogun vs. jones. might have to get out and see that one
That's gonna be a hell of a fight.
Will be interesting to see how Jones handles his first elite striker.
Bones definitely has to look for takedowns and watch out for leglocks if he does. He will have a significant reach advantage though, so it'll definitely be an interesting fight. I think if Jim Miller wins his fight, he should be in line for a title shot, especially with Sotiropoulous losing recently.
I don't think it'll be easy for Jones on the ground either. Rua's jitz is is arugably the best in the LHW division.
I like Jim Miller, but there are a few guys already inline for the LW title, especially with the WEC merger. Maynard gets another crack at it first, then Pettis, then whoever. Miller will may have to fight once or twice in the meantime.
I wonder if they will scrap the women since Dana has been very clear there will not be womens MMA.
