Jones came in there with a set plan to prove a point. If he wanted Chael to be at distance, IMO that's what would have happened. I think the gap in skill was so wide that Jones could have literally done whatever the hell he wanted to and Chael couldn't do a damn thing about it. No I will not give Chael any credit at LHW since he has not earned it.
That is a pretty stupid thought.
There isnt much anyone can do to keep Chael at a distance. He rushes forward takes the punches and tries to take you down. Jones could not do anything to keep him at a distance.
