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.
