  1. The Zignum Mezcal Anejo is actually quite good. A nice after dinner drink that is great neat. Regarding this talk Dom is just an awesome dude. I wish all the best for him. He's going to need it against JBJ. I'm thinking he'll pull off the miracle and win via decision. That or maybe just maybe a 4th round TKO.

  2. Reyes is one of the best LHW contenders to face jon, but he doesn't get it done. I got Bones round 3, or 4 via submission or tko. Reyes saying things like "worst case scenario i lose to jon jones" doesn't sound like BulletProof confidence to me, and fighting guy's like jj, DC. You have to have a winning mentality a strong ironclad will to win. I just don't see it in Reyes to best JJ. Great athlete tho i like him good hands, durable, Hes a problem Just not ready for jj yet

  3. Jones wont be prepared for Doms speed, athleticism and movement combined with his size. Hes never fought someone this big and athletic who can kick and punch well moving forward, backward and laterally. Similar to a LHW Dom Cruz. Jones has gotten very slow the more weight hes put on. Takedowns will not come easy either. I doubt Jones ever gets him down.
