They have completely different wrestling.

Chael has probably the BEST power double currently in MMA but he does not set it up. A Power Double that you see coming is not very hard to defend. Which is why his wrestling is so impressive. Most power doubles without being set up would be stopped 4 out of 5 times. Chael on the other hand succeeds 1 out of 2 times.

Jones uses his trips and throws to take people down. His shot isnt anywhere near the level of Chaels. On the other hand his trips and throws are light years ahead of Chaels.

Its apple to oranges. They both can take each other down.

Chael struggled taking Bisping down but Jones struggled taking Rampage down. While Bader had no problem taking Rampage down.

Its all about styles. Chaels wrestling works better against some and Jones wrestling works better against others.

Id bet the house that Chaels wrestling would be horrible against Machida but Jones trips would work wonders.
