    Who’d of thought we’d be sitting watching Ryan Hall submit BJ Penn and not be surprised or care?

    Please retire BJ.

    Ryan Hall’s ground game is stupid good.

    He needs to be more active.

    I like the fact that Jones is going after Anthony Smith. Get back to fighting 3/4 times a year, get a few wins before a super fight.

    Jones needs to move up to heavyweight

    You not confident he could get the better of DC at heavyweight?

    Don’t know what the biggest mismatch is; Jones against Smith or Pettis against Wonderboy.

    I think it’s a great fight.

    Unfortunately if it doesn’t happen now it won’t happen at all, unless DC does a 180 and doesn’t retire.

    I just want Jones to remind everyone he’s the most dominant of all time, clear out 2 or 3 more challengers.

    Anyone who still doesn’t think Jones is the GOAT will never accept him as the GOAT no matter what he does.

    I don’t even think it’s close. His track record is insane.

    Agreed. The drug tests don’t even matter to the guys fighting him, except DC. That’s how good he is.

    Think he’s aiming for Anderson and Mighty Mouses records before the end of the year.

    A fight against Rockhold is tasty. Still smashed him though.

    The thought of Rockhold trying to move backwards and evade Jones’ is hilarious :giggle1:

    Rockhold’s last 3 fights; KO’d off Bisping, KO’d David Branch, KO’d off Romero.

    He should be nowhere near JJ.

    It's probably the weakest division in the sport, if I was a Jones fan I'd probably want him to go to heavyweight and do what DC did.

    He doesn't seem to fancy it though.
