Jones hasn't fought anyone near the level of wrestling that Cormier has.

Yea, he beat Shogun down. But he went 5 rounds with Rashad, beat him easily, but it wasn't a beat down. Same goes for Rampage, he easily out-struck him but it wasn't a beat down He wore him out and then choked him out. He didn't beat Machida down. He landed like 1 or 2 good strikes. Then caught him with the choke. The guys he has beat down besides Shogun were guys who were caught underneath his elbows.
