I don't think Jones would do any damage at all to Moose, but he'd definitely win in an MMA fight. Mousasi looked great against OSP in terms of wrestling improvement, but we'll see if he's still training that hard. The guy is an absolute stud but trains by fooling around a few times a week.
I agree with you if they fought right now apart from the BJJ bit. I would say Mousasi just edges Jones on BJJ. How many elite fighters get caught in a standing guillotine nowadays. The Machida sub was incredible.
I actually picked Machida to win that fight by close decision. It was after that fight I thought Mousasi is the only challenger who can beat him.

Mousasi was training sub par but I believe him when he says he will train like modern day elite fighters after the OSP fight.
Imagine the guy properly equipped with a modern training camp he should instantly be a better fighter and if his wrestling has improved massively from bringing Olympic calibre in one camp then he could have GSP level improvement when he focused on wrestling.

Also respect to you for having Saki in your Sig.
