Well I don't think you can outbox Jones, and Vitor will be the test for this as he's likely the best pure boxer in the two divisions. I believe the best chance to takes Jones out is a guy like Alexander Gustafsson. With Gustafsson people are thinking about his striking in terms of reach. What I see in him that I don't see in other fighters is that he's good enough to pull guard, sweep, and sub/TKO with ground and pound.

Negative. If Gus even shows a glimmer of a thought of a hope of taking a fight with Jones to the ground, Jones will GNP him to dust or Get a sub. Jones grappling >>>Gus. Gus' striking is very good and tht would be his best bet.

How can you say crap striker. Sure his opponents worry about his dangerous wrestling but to say his striking is crap is ridiculous. You can out strike everyone you defended a title against just because your wrestling is THAT good. If so then you are saying he has the best ground game of all time.

Jon Jones | Anderson Silva | Urijah Faber | Benson Henderson | Rampage Jackson | Roy Nelson | Shinya Aoki
