R.i.p. Anthony smith

Postby JACKnoneREACHER » Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:46 am

Poor fucker has to fight Jon bones Jones at UFC 235.

His stand up is decent and he carries power but Jones is Jones. I don't see smith dropping him and also don't see how smith will be able to keep Jones off of him. The grappling is a huge advantage for Jones imo.

This is for sure the only move, Gus Jones and dc are the only higher ranked lhw's and we've seen those fights four times.

Happy for smith even though he hurt my man Mauricio real bad, should be a good payday for him I just don't see how he gets a w here.

Love an upset though, would be super psyched if this is turns out like Bigfoot overeem or nunes cyborg.

I'm actually liking the L Cuckhold call out, think his style can present problems jbj hasn't seen


:lol: No.

Just no.

Rockhold let Bisping get close enough to land a punch that dropped him.

Jones can land a kick to the legs, body or head that makes Luke beg for mercy from another Zip code.

Rockhold is nowhere near quick or strong enough, let alone good enough everywhere, to give Jones any issues. Only thing is a dislocated/broken toe like in the Chael fight.

I was thinking this also. We've seen a trend over the past 5 years or so of people losing their belts in odd fashion that wasn't expected.

Rose beats jj via KO like wtf
Bisping beats Rockhold via KO like wtf
Fat Daniel Cormier beats Stype via KO like wtf
Weidman beats Silva via KTFO like wtf
Woodley beats Lawler via KTFO like wtf
McGregor beats Aldo via KTFO like wtf
Dildo beats Cruz via dominating decision
Nunes beats Cyborg via KTFO like wtf
Holm beats Rousey via KTFO like wtf

There's probably more unexpected huge wins in title fights but my point remains.

I don't think Anthony will bring anything that Jones hasn't seen before and I think he will lose, but if Jones sleeps on the guy's hunger or power or confidence, he will be embarrassed. It's definitely possible, important point Kezza made here IMO

I like Smith alot he has improved immensely and has a good reach and power to counter cheating Jones but he's gonna need some takedown defense and hard/heavy and frequent leg kicks.Dont know why Gus didn't use the shit outta them and basically choose to try almost the exact same thing but with less imagination which was just to predictible. Of course Gus did say that groin strike messed him up so maybe that's why.

It's too bad that Smith gives up 8.5inch of reach. I somehow might be alone in thinking that Rockhold is a more dangerous challenge for Jones. He also gives up a crazy amount of range like almost everyone at LHW does. :roll:

Smith isn't that bad of a fighter but the wrestling could be an issue.

Jon would hold him down and snort lines off his pretty yet frail chin. Would have absolutely nothing for him. He's super dangerous on top for sure but would never get on top of jon.
