Jones was fairly awful back then.

He didn't know how to throw a punch. His takedown setups were bad.

He was just raw talent.

Andre Gusmao wasn't much of a great fighter but he pretty much just gets by him on physical skills and aggressiveness alone. It's an ugly fight.

Jones wouldn't have done too well on that TUF with how little experience he had.
