I hate to burst your bubble but on paper you can say gegard can do that but facts are.

Machida,shogun,Rampage,Vera could not touch him, i doubt Gegard would beat shogun or machida in a stand up war. King mo has not really fought anyone relevant aside from gegard and he did did his ass kicked by Rafael Cavalcante.

As good as Gegard is where talking about a guy who was struggling to put away Keith Jardine not even a year and a half ago. Jon Jones is beating elite fighters and is not breaking a sweat.

All fights start standing, Jones recently has shown he is willing to stand and find his opponents weakness. Jones has shown he is world class with intelligent use of his reach and judging the striking range.

Mousasi is a whole level above Jones in striking. Mousasi has been in there with Kyotaro who has some of the best standup not in MMA but the world. Mousasi beat him outright.
Jones beating Mousasi 8/10 can understand because of the wrestling but 10/10 is absurd.

Franklin,Gouveia,Maia,Kharitonov,Hunt,Liddell,Pari syan,Hardy,Shlemenko,Machida,Gomi,Bustamante,Evans ,Edgar,Hathaway,Bonnar,Murray,S.Carter,Ludwig,Pett is,K.Gill,Sobral,Mousasi,D.Cruz,Arona,Nogueiras,Co te,Ole Laursen,Kawajiri,Sakuraba & K1 Lebanner!

I'll stick with 10/10 for jones, Gegard is good but Jones is on another level. Jones would take him down at will and elbow him to death. In the stand up game I have seen Gegard getting hit, with a 8 inch reach advantage and his out of the box striking he would easily beat gegard. Hell Shogun and Machida are better technical strikers than Jones and look what happen.

Jones in a mma match will beat Gegard easily, you guys can say he is the better striker, but guys who i think are better strikers than gegard (machida,shogun) all have fallen to jones. Gegard has been beating cans or wash up fighters for years.Until he faces dudes like rampage,Thaigo silva,machida,shogun, i'll stick to jones will beat him 10 times out of 10. King mo on the other hand i think would lose to Jones, but has a better chance than gegard.

Shogun is not a better striking than Mousasi lol. He's been tooled standing before and was forced to go for takedowns against Lil Nog and Hendo while Mousasi has never lost standing in K-1 or MMA.

What is this "new" Mousasi we speak of?

He has been overrated his whole career.
