    *Spoilers* UFC 140: Jones vs Machida - Mir, Tito, Hominick vs Korean Zombie, Nog

    UFC 140: Jones vs Machida
    Dec. 10, 2011
    Air Canada Centre
    Toronto, Ontario




    Posted apparently by Aronian. http://aronian.deviantart.com/gallery/

    Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida
    Frank Mir vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
    Tito "The Peoples Champion" Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
    Mark Hominick vs. Chan Sung Jung
    Brian Ebersole vs. Claude Patrick
    Igor Pokrajac vs. Krzysztof Soszynski
    Dennis Hallman vs. John Makdessi
    Nik Lentz vs. Mark Bocek
    Yves Jabouin vs. Walel Watson
    John Cholish vs. Mitch Clarke
    Jared Hamman vs. Constantinos Philippou
    Rich Attonito vs. Jake Hecht


    The one who cannot be named is no longer The Huntington Beach Bad Boy because that name was too long.
    Rory Macdonald was supposed to face Brian "Here's My Chest Hair Shaped Like An Arrow Pointing To My Chin" Ebersole but had to pull out due to injury, he is replaced by Claude Patrick.

    Does the loser of Tito Ortiz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira get cut?

    Jones is a giant pile of crazy long reach, and I just don't see Lyoto's counterpunching ways having the same kind of effect that they would have on men with less chimp like proportions.

    I see Jon Jones taking this via TKO. Barring that he takes it by decision. In general, I imagine Jones will stay on the outside, probably attempt fewer of his crazier strikes than we've seen in previous matches. If he catches Machida with something that drops him, Bones swarms for the GnP from hell. If not, it goes the distance. I know--utterly crazy prediction--a little less certain than "the sun will rise tomorrow." If it doesn't happen like that, though... well, that's the fight game.

    That's just a little racist isn't it ? Maybe it wasn't intentional.

    Having tossed that hand grenade out there I'd like to see Jones keep the title just to put the LHW curse away for a while.

    Was'nt supposed to come off that way, I was just saying that a guy with 84.5 inch reach can strike from range way beyond normal, and decided a chimp was a good metaphor for a guy with super-reach.
