UFC 128 Newark – Shogun Rua vs Jon Jones

UFC 128 will be held at Prudential Center in Newark, NJ tonight. The overall card for the fight looks pretty good, but I’m interested in the main event far more than all the other fights. The main events pits the Light Heavyweight Champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua vs Jon “Bones” Jones for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship.

This could be an epic battle. Jones seems to have superhuman athleticism, but he has never faced anyone as tough as Rua, nor anyone as hard hitting. I’ve gone back and forth on this fight, but I think Shogun wins. Rua has seen it all and won’t be intimidated by Jones. I’m little surprised I’m making this prediction because I’ve gone back and forth on this a lot and only a few days ago I was leaning toward Jones. Both fighters are very capable of ending this fight early and Jones is indeed the favorite in this fight in Vegas at around 2-1, but I think Shogun will win by TKO/KO.
