^I said the same thing in another thread about a fight with Struve. If Struve locked in that armbar, the fight would have been over. People are saying Vitor let go of the hold but it was simple enough that Jones just managed to lift him and get out of the hold using his reach well. Struve's big ass legs would have kept it on, and then you have the fact that Struve would have attacked MUCH more.

Jones said he is now doing BJJ so he might patch that up, but right this second his biggest gap is def his sub defence and how much he engages against a submission guy on the ground. Can Machida even do anything to utilize that?

I'm probably the best at keeping threads on topic of all time.
