It's a *very* rare thing in MMA to see that level of striking. Were you not impressed?
Teixeira went up a tier in my estimation. From thinking he had zero chance against Bones, I now feel he has some tools that could throw up problems for Jones.
Having said that, Jones is a beast from another dimension. Tex may have a few tools. Bones has a whole fecking walk-in waldrobe full of fancy options. Tex may have 2 ways to win. Bones has 28.
