Jones quite clearly wants nothing to do with Gus. Ducking him plain and simple and he quite clearly thinks Cormier is the much easier fight, to which I agree.
Cormier is a poor mans Cain Velasquez. Yes, he's got some nice take downs and slams and has good ground control, but in terms of MMA wrestling, Jones is superior. In terms of striking, he's superior. Cormiers ground and pound is virtually non existent.
If Jones beats Cormier and stops ducking Gus and beats him in the rematch, there has to be a Velasquez superfight.
If you're not willing to die for it remove the word freedom from your vocabulary.
