Jones is more athletic I will give him that but I dont think his top game is as safe from submissions and sweeps as Mo's. I sure as hell would not write Mousasi off in that fight, nor would I right Jones off for that matter.
Right, and I'm sure King Mo's outstanding wrestling was displayed when he could barely stand and fell over on Mousasi for the last 2 rounds.


Jones is also twice the grappler of Mo. Not even close. Mo has no grappling ability outside of takedowns, and Feijao stuffed him quite a few times.

Hopefully time will tell on this one, but I bet it would be a lot harder for some like say Roger Gracie to Sub Mo, than it would be for him to Sub Jones in a grappling match.

Jones looks more impressive because he is more aggressive, but I doubt he is as safe from counter sweep and submissions.

Kind of like Sonnen vs GSP, Sonnen is more aggressive but more likely to be submitted, GSP is a lot more safe, well maybe that is not giving JOnes full credit to be fair, he does look to been passing guards and looking for improved positions more than Sonnen with success, but them I am not sire if I have ever seen anyone with a dangerous world class guard try to defend and counter Jones, its something I would like to see.

Thank God that's over.

I barely watched. It's hard to watch a half-naked Sakurai on top of someone when you've seen a fully naked Sakurai on top of someone.

That was a sublime performance from Kawajiri.

Needed to, he's always been criminally underrated for no reason to American fans.

Kawajiri vs Melendez in 2011!

You are right.

But it all goes out the window when you consider Mousasi was getting taken down by what seemed to be a half dead man. Those were some of the weakest TD attempts I have ever seen...and Mousasi had ZERO answers. As good as Mo's TDs are he had no energy what so every in teh 3rd 4th and 5th round...yet he was still able to easily take him down.

You are mistaken if you don't think JJ could rag doll Mousasi.

It's less of Mousasi getting taken down because he can't defend it and more of Mousasi getting taken down because he just doesn't give a ****. He was beating the Hell out of Mo from the bottom and I honestly think he won that fight.
