Fightlinker thinks its a "crying shame" that "Big Baby" Marcus Jones is quitting MMA. While I agree with his "quit" versus "retire" analysis, I have no problem with it. Jones has zero chin and zero standup, and his alleged top control seems like as flimsy as his jawline. He needs to stay away from MMA, he'll get seriously hurt.
Of course, he can always head to Japan and cash in on the freakshow circuit.

Dear MMA World

I am not looking forward to Frank Mir and Shane Carwin trying to out-fellate each other with praise leading up to their fight. Someone send Frank the complete season of Jersey Shore so he can channel his inner Guido and talk some weirdly-cadenced shit about Carwin's lack of a manly head of curly/greasy locks.

Oh Paulo.

So Paulo Filho talks badly-translated shit about Chael Sonnen after revealing he suffers from depression:

“Two years ago, the addiction to sleeping pills Paulão led to a depression which disturbs her to this day. During this period, Paulão lost the belt of World Extreme Cagefighting to an American wrestler infinitely inferior to him, the median Chael Sonnen.”

One fucking point, Paulo. You fight with your head as well as your body. You have a fucking busted up head that doesn't work right. That counts towards your superiority. Filho effectively is taking the same stance as Melvin Guillard saying "I've never been beaten, I've only been submitted", and other fighters who have some gaping hole in their game that they try to paper over. Or a guy with no cardio saying he did well til he gassed. YOU HAVE TO TRAIN CARDIO. Your head has to work. If your head doesn't work (see War "Jon 'War Machine' Koppenhaver" Machine), THAT COUNTS YOU JACKASS. Chael Sonnen (as much as it pains me to say this) is better than Paulo Filho until proven otherwise because he BEAT HIM.
I can't say I'm not a fan of Filho's. He's a talented fighter, but unless he gets his head together he won't be the real thing. Maybe him and Karo can hang out, have a hug or something.

OK, I'm not a fan of a guy losing when he dominates like that, but I really, really, really believe everyone follows the same rules. Still, that loss for Jon Jones is hard to swallow. Tough luck for Jones, he'll still be a factor going forward.
