I think Gus is actually good enough to beat Jones in a striking match but I don't think Jones will let him do so as I don't think Gus will be able to avoid Jones' takedowns and ground game.
I think your memory is a little wrong, here is the fight metric for Lyoto vs JBJ:

Lyoto landed 13 strikes over the course of the whole fight. Lyoto literally had to sprint at JBJ to hit him, meanwhile JBJ attacked safely from range. Gus isn't a sprinter, and even then JBJ has already seen that trick so I am sure he would be ready.
