much better fight in my opinion, whats everyone think? is Shogun too much or what?? I actually can see Jones taking that title especially with the Shogun layoff

After Jon Jones submitted Ryan Bader at UFC 126, UFC president Dana White announced that #1 contender Rashad Evans was injured and welcomed light heavyweight champion Mauricio Rua into the ring with Jones.

The 12-1 (only loss by DQ) Jones will replace Evans against Rua at UFC 128.

Rua has not fought since taking the belt from Lyoto Machida at UFC 114. He had to have knee surgery, his third and will return to action after almost a year off.

i don't know man..wasn't it a knee surgery lay off that shogun came from when he went up against and lost to forest? if its that same shogun i think jones would win it. but if we see the real dangerous shogun, i don't know...i dunno

i thought it was weird they had shogun come in after that fight since he was supposed to fight evans next. what happened to that?

The only way I see Shogun winning this fight is by KO. If he can't ko Jones, I think he will find himself getting raped on the ground via a total pounding or sub. Not to mention, Jones can strike too.

I want to jump on it, but this is the guy that KO'd mr. I don't get hit in fights.

When he's knee was 100% he can throw some crazy kicks. Let's hope he has no ring rust and is 100%
