If my MMA math serves me right, Jon Jones will fight Lyoto Machida, a guy who lost to Rampage Jackson, the person Bones recently defended his belt against. However, Machida also fought Rashad Evans, the guy that beat Rampage Jackson, but was knocked out by Machida. He’s also the guy that many people believed would contend for the UFC light heavyweight belt at UFC 140.
Alright, so let me get out my MMA calculator and figure this one out. Let’s see, carry the one…I end up getting this picture over and over again. I think something went wrong in my calculations. I need to show my work. Also, can we finally admit the phrase ‘showing your work,’ was the most ridiculous notion from our childhood? If I have the answer, why do I need to show you how I arrived to it? If I order a filet mignon, I don’t expect the chef to ‘show me his work.’ Just give me the filet mignon, man, I’ll take your word for it. You don’t need to prove to me that my dinner is cooked correctly, it looks delicious. Just let me eat it.
Some of you may remember Dana White going ravenous on a few people yesterday on Twitter while dispelling rumors that Rashad Evans would be slotted to face Jon Jones. Well, judging from his appearance at the UFC on FOX press conference a few weeks ago, it appears that Evans still has pins in his hand, preventing him from competing for the remainder of 2011. Now, we have ‘the guy who people thought was impossible to beat’ vs. ‘the guy that people currently think is impossible to beat.’ Stoked? Of course I am, and so should you. [Source]
