I don't understand why people even go to these events if they are just going to boo. You'd think by now people would realize grappling is a major part of the sport.
COSIGN.


But ask those same people why they don't just watch K1 and they'll look at you with bewilderment.

There's a difference between Josh Barnett and Jon Jones though. He'd get worked on the feet with Jones. His reach advantage will be too much to overcome. The only thing that we don't know is how dropping to 205 will affect his ability to take down Jones.
Jones doesn't have the jiu jitsu to submit DC if he gets taken down
Jones doesn't have the wrestling to stop DC's takedowns
Jones doesn't have the knock out power to knock DC out


All Jones has is his reach and I have a hard time believing Jones is gonna beable to keep the f!ght standing by just using his reach. Once they clinch up it's game over for Jones. Mir couldn't even keep DC against the cage for 10 seconds befor DC reversed it.

This f!ght, DC didn't take Mir down for whatever reason, maybe he was scared he would get submitted. In the Barnett f!ght, DC threw Barnett around the cage and had cardio to go the whole f!ght because it wasn't a clinch fest like this one was. The clinch is incredibly grueling, it tires your whole body out. DC had to force and hold a 260+ pound Frank Mir against the cage for 15 minutes against Frank's will. That is going to be very taxing on your cardio no matter what.

D.C. very much has a chance against Bones. That f!ght would be much different than this one.

But you're a.ssuming he wont be affected by the weight cut. Plus if he's clinching Jones, wont he only last a round and a half again. If he doesn't finish him, he'll have to f!ght Jones for 3 and half rounds gassed

If the ref has to stand up/seperate the f!ghters multiple times, it was a boring f!ght. Plain and simple. The first half of the f!ght wasn't bad, but it ended with a dud. You have to admit that.
The first two rounds were pure dominance in the clinch by an olympic wrestler. The third round was DC playing it safe for the W and an unblemished record.

In round two he even stepped out of the clinch twice when the fans started booing to step in the center and throw.

DC has 6+ months to make it to 205. He could lose 2 pounds a week and he would have the cut done in like 2 weeks. The final 10 pounds or so that f!ghters are cutting is just water.


After tonight's performance it isn't likely for DC to get an instant title shot anyways. So he will get a warm up f!ght at 205, hell, it could even be a catchweight at 220 or something.
