Jones range lets him execute unorthodox strikes and partly because his opponents defend too much and are cautious of his takedowns. He has amazing standup because of his range.
Pettis is a world class striker but he doesnt have the range of Jones yet he is dominant in striking.

I think top strikers in MMA cannot be classed the same because every standout striker have personal physical attributes they evolved to be a level ahead of the normal calibre.
I fully expect Jones to get better then his level through learning better footwork, combinations, body memory and striking IQ. All MMA fighters are still evolving in all disciplines.

I personally think Mousasi is a guy who is very evolved in striking and could beat Jones standing.
