Only way Sonnen beats Jones is an H Bomb........if Jones wants to predicable and simple hell Keep him at range til Chael realizes he can hit em he'll go for a sloppy TD and gets subbed. And to be honest I don't think Cormier would fare much better. He may have better Greco than Jones (and I'm not convinced at that) but that's where his advantage would stop. He would get lit up on the feet like everyone else has. The guy is short and has no reach. I do think he could get Jones down once but keep him there? No way. And if he keeps him down I def could see Bones getting his first sub off his back.
Honestly the biggest threat to Jones other than Anderson is Gus. While not as unpredictable as Jones his standup is just as crisp. He has a good chin and a killer. But alas if it goes to the ground it's over.
Now some sort of Cormier/Gus hybrid.....that would be interesting
Jon Jones | Anderson Silva | Urijah Faber | Benson Henderson | Rampage Jackson | Roy Nelson | Shinya Aoki
