Jones leg kicking are warfare, he varies them up so much.
Indeed. Goes low, mid range, high and spinning back kick. Even his low kicks are good. He'll use the thigh kick, but also straight on to the knee, shin to get their attention as well as offset them.


A lot of tricks in his arsenal. Good elbows too.

Just watched the Woodley fight. Yeah usman won albeit a snooze fest . Didn’t remember Tyrone even going for a takedown let alone throwing , especially in the later rounds . ?

Yea Usman vs Colby can’t main event a ppv, almost certainly just a grapple/wrestle fest to a decision.

Good co main though.

I remember his elbows against Rashad, he was so good at clinching then letting go and landing an elbow, clinch and elbow, rinse and repeat. He just has so many more skills now, he really is becoming a complete fighter.

Never seen anyone use his kicks to keep distance so well. That downward thigh kick would hurt so much an keeps you on the back foot then he rips a spinning back kick to the body.

Jones is so methodical, he looks like you are playing on a PlayStation such is the control he has in the octagon.

Even the way he keeps his hand flat an reaches for distance an steps in with the elbow.. so quick.

During/after that Jones fight I was just thinking about DC/Francis/Stipe.

Guys who can actually give this guy a run.

He’s going to run through those 205 contenders so easily.

i dont know if i want to see Jones v Cormier 3.
I mean ffs Jones has beat him both times, the last time brutaly.

And what happens if DC wins? he retires saying 'I told you I could beat Jones' even though he lost to him twice

DC's natural weight has always been heavyweight, he can turn around and say he hardly fought at heavyweight for his UFC career. If Jones doesn't want to fight DC at heavyweight question mark goes on him a bit. (FWIW Jones probably still gets it done at HW but just)

As for Jones, he uses his elbows so well, due to his reach he can almost throw them like a regular punch. Amazing to watch.

Yea I doubt he can beat him anyway, that reach difference and Jones wrestling makes it so hard.

He does seem very keen on it still though, just from a personal competitor point of view. DC that is.

I cbf seeing Jones-Cormier a third time. FFS he's lost twice already, a third fight is just boring and not needed.

If people dont want to see Jones fight Cormier again then who else is going to actually challenge him?

Santos is going to get his ass kicked and he has cleaned out the rest of the division.

DC wants the Jones fight at 205.

He wants to beat him where he was beat.

Like McGregor at 170 after the Diaz loss.

Said it before the fight and I'm still convinced that Johnnie Walker will be fighting for the title within 2 years. Problem is he's wiped the rest of the decision so easily so far I haven't seen him be tested.

I think he is capable of fighting for a title but my concern is they will throw him to the wolves too soon since there is no one else instead of giving him the experience needed to beat Jones.

Give him someone in top 5 range and if he smokes them he might get his shot. Maybe the loser of Till an Masvidal. Could be one step to quick so maybe a former top 5er like Latifi

Edit yeah yeah I've inserted him into the 170 division I'm a dumb campaigner

Not sure fighting a welterweight will prove much about Walker's claims at the 205 belt. 😉

I suggested Cory Anderson earlier who is a good pressure wrestler and hanging around the top 5. My only concern with that fight is he's shown to be a bit chinny, so if Walker was to land earlier I think it would be another short night for him.

Jesus.. been watching so much UFC stuff I mixed that up badly lol. That's who i think Askren should fight next

Walker needs someone who can get him to the canvas an test or who can atleast walk him backwards. He's incredibly exciting though. Gonna be a superstar of the UFC
