If you think Jones would beat Junior in a standup match you are delusional. Jones uses his striking to maintain distance and control the octagon, Junior uses his for damage. Because Jones has so little power Junior would be able to walk through anything Jones has and hit him, it would only take one punch to knock him down then he'd TKO Jones. It'd be very much like JDS vs. Cain 1, tko in the first. Jones is a beast, but he just doesn't have any power in his strikes and that would make it so easy for Junior to walk through Jones' reach. Those kicks to the knee would do literally nothing.

Just because Jones kept an old unmotivated power puncher in Rampage at bay doesn't mean he would do anything to the HW champ.
