That toe looked really awful.
Yeah, he's medically suspended indefinitely with that. I can't believe he didn't feel it straight away. He was doing cartwheels. Nobody does cartwheels on a broken toe. Then he saw it with his eyes, and you could see he went into shock.
If Sonnen had managed to hold on till the end of the round, Jones would have been taken out of the fight for that injury and Sonnen would be new champ.
I've been into MMA for quite some time now. I'm waiting for the GSP/A. Silva super fight to happen. I remember people from GSP's team saying something about it after GSP's recent fight, but they did say that Anderson has to beat Weidman first.
In the post fight presser, Dana mentioned that Anderson Silva made a phonecall to him asking for a name. Silva either wants a St-Pierre or a Jones fight. Dana was a bit evasive about which one he asked for.
Silva vs. St-Pierre will be predictable and doesn't really get me excited. It'll probably go like the first Silva vs. Sonnen fight. St-Pierre will just take him down again and again and the fight will be all horizontal. He wont finish Silva. Either St-Pierre wins via takedowns/points or Silva will weather it, set up something from the bottom, and win by submission. I'd be surprised if it stays stand up for any significant length of time.
Much rather see Silva vs. Jones. That'll be such an incredible display of mixed martial arts. An intelligent, creative, dynamic fight between two fighters with an almost superhuman talent and individual flair. I can't predict anything about that fight and that's why the idea of it is exciting to me.
Like GSP and A. Silva, Jones has dominated his division, and I think there's nothing left for him at 205. The next move for him would probably be moving to the heavyweight division. It will be really interesting to see him against the likes of Overeem and Dos Santos.
Well, he'll want at least one more fight at LHW to break Ortiz's record (5 title defences in a row). He's always talked about wanting that record. He matched it with this win. But he's also talked about wanting to move up to HW eventually. He's certainly got the frame for it. And he's got brutal stopping power and a viscous ground game. There is no reason why he can't dominate HW too.
It depends on Dana though, ultimately. He's the boss. He's seeing the bigger picture, getting the sponsors, the venues, taking UFC and MMA to bigger and better places. He's kinda hard to predict at times. I think he'll want a few more LHW fights out of Jones.
