‘UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones’ — Extended Video Trailer

(Props: 2112neto)

UFC 128: Shogun vs. Jones goes down March 19th at the Prudential Center in Newark, and we’ve got the extended trailer for your viewing pleasure. Personally, I’m already a little burned out on watching the main eventers’ fight highlights and hearing the crusty old “youth vs. experience” debate. If you are too, just skip to the 4:51 mark to hear more about two other fights that aren’t getting nearly enough attention.

In the co-main event, former featherweight champ Urijah Faber — who’s coming off his successful bantamweight debut against Takeya Mizugaki — meets up with Eddie Wineland, the WEC’s first-ever bantamweight champ. Wineland has defeated his last four opponents in impressive fashion, including Knockout of the Night-earning performances against Ken Stone and Will Campuzano, and unanimous decisions over George Roop and Manny Tapia. Faber says Wineland is dangerous when it comes to striking, but he’ll be at a huge disadvantage on the mat. “Is he a threat? No,” Faber says. “It’s just a matter of how I get it done.”

Finally, Mirko Cro Cop tries to convince us that he has “even bigger competitive fire than before,” and Brendan Schaub won’t survive three rounds with him. Schaub says he has the power to knock Cro Cop out. Coming off his disastrous fight against Frank Mir, Cro Cop will need to make a big statement here to show that his heart’s still in the game. If he loses to Schaub, the UFC may no longer have a use for him.

I too fancy Shogun.


Unless Shogun decapitates him with a jumping flying spinning round house, which is what I predict will happen. 3:57 of round two. Ya heard it here first.

Will Jones rush in and try to finish early. That might be what Shogun is expecting. Jones is an active guy; he uses a lot of energy in those bursts. I think Jones will rush in, but the opposite always happens when I predict, so Jones will be patient and win by decision. Most unlikely scenario becomes the actual scenario...and boom goes the dynamite.

I got Jones/Faber/Schaub (although I hope Cro Cop can win). Even if Jones loses, its only a matter of time before he gets the belt.

and he had an illegal elbow in that fight too, just wasn't called. That could have fucked Bonnar up forever.

@destination I agree about Jones going the distance. It's a total unknown and we saw him slow down a good bit down the stretch against Bonner. Of course, that was quite a while back now.

Cro Cop makes Lorenzo Fertitta look dumber than a bag of hammers.

I think Cro Cop is just along for the ride nowadays.....I've got shogun, I think hes going to beat the crap out of his legs early, but if he doesnt he could be in trouble...has Jones gone more than 2 rounds before? He looks in great shape, but it will be a real test for the later rounds....

I got Jones by 12-6 elbows. Round 1.

Yeah it does Gill-uh-TEEN. I rollin wit Jones, Faber, and I hope Cro Cop can return to his old form although I think he's on the decline. I hope Nate can get back to his winning ways too.

Schaub should be able to beat Cro Cop. Jones will have a tough go, but I'm picking him. Kind of interested in Akiyama and Marquardt.

Looks like a promising card.

Genuinely excited to see this fight, I fancy Shogun as I don't think Jones has been tested yet....but Jones is scary for anyone and if he piles it on early doors, Shogun might be in for a tough time.
Can't wait.
