You do know they use legs in MMA, right?

Bones has used kicks to the knees/legs to keep distance as much as any punches. Gus might have a much smaller wingspan, but the dude has *very* long legs. Easily long enough to reach Bones with. Up to now, Bones knows if anybody is on the end of his kicks, then they are out of range to retaliate. That wont be the case with Gus. If Bones is in range to connect you can be sure Gus can connect also. Its an interesting fight for sure.
