But Rampage seriously needs something else in his arsenel.
While i do appreciate your hatred for jones being free of racial bias, i still fail to understand it. please expain your defintion of cocky and punk. Im gonna assume we dissagree on the definition of the two terms.
You say he was afraid of rampages punches. This is where i must give you one of these
. Pretend you were a fighter with a 12inch reach advantage, and you were facing rampage for the damn title. You're tellin me you would not relinquish your reach advantage to show ppl you weren't scared of his punches. Perhaps he shouldv pulled a rocky when he fought clubber lang and just let page T-off on him. You know, then he wouldnt be such a punk and all.
Also, i think you're mistaking "running" for "staying out of range and landing solid shots from a distance." I hope you never land a job giving gameplans for fighters. That guy would hate you
Ok lets just get right down to it.
Im a Jones hater, I dont like his attitude. Everytime I see an interview he acts all respectful, but he always manages to get some sort of dig into his opponent, or mention something to big himself up. Jones fans dont see this as disrespectful, they see this as confidence. This is where opinions will differ.
GSP is a very respectful guy, in many interviews he has been egged on to disrespect his opponent and potential opponents and never rises to the challenge.
Jones has amazing potential, the skills he has learned in such a short period of time is amazing, but he is not the God that people are making him out to be. I still see plenty of room for improvement, and Rampage proved that Jones's wrestling isnt as superior as people were making out to be. Without that reach advantage jones is just another good fighter. He used this advantage in the fight, and rightly so, but whenever Rampage engaged (not enough in my opinion) He ran, did whatever he could to get out of the way, He was afraid of Rampages power. Dont make excuses when people were on here before bitching about Machida staying on the outside.
This is my opinion, u dont have to agree, i'm not asking u to, or anyone else. I have yet to be impressed by Jones. He can preach the Jackson camp Yoda bullshit all he wants, but he is too cocky to really pull it off. GSP exudes respect and practices what he preaches. Jones is too young and too caught up in the hype to pull this off.
Again, my opinion.
