I'd be surprised if he won by strikes in the first. Unless he gets a TD and unleashes crazy elbows.
He got that TD and landed the elbows. But IMO even if he didn't come in with a point to prove about his wrestling vs Chael's and just stayed standing. He still would have won by 1st round TKO.

either way it was a pretty bad mismatch. Chael never really stood a chance. Too bad Chuck isn't in his prime right now, he'd give Jones a run for his money. Jones really is lucky, no good up and comers with speed, power and wrestling. He could go undefeated for a decade until some Rory Mcdonald type comes along in 2023

Bones would ragdoll Chuck and cave his face in with elbows.

Chuck couldn't even stand with Jones.

He'd get beaten in every aspect of MMA.

Jones has actually outstruck good strikers like Lyoto and Chuck's father.

He had world class TDD, knockout power, fast hands and a good chin. Pretty good stylistic matchup against Jones, better combo of skills than anyone else he's faced so far. Chael with his aggressive style was able to land some shots on Jones right at the start but he never had any power.

He didn't have world class takedown defense Rampage made him his bitch with wrestling and Jones is a million times better than Rampage at wrestling. Randy wasn't a great takedown artist watch his fight with Vera then watch Bones fight with Vera. Randy would get thrown around like a baby against Bones.

I don't agree. Chael was hurt by nothing standing. Jones doesn't finish with standing strikes, and has no standing KO's. Shogun was beat down on he feet, but after 3 rounds. Rampage was, but then taken down and sub'd. Bader? Hamill? Vera?

Bones has no history of ending fights early by striking. And most of the time he gets a TD and does what he wants from there.

Chael would have easily made it out of the first if they stood that whole round.

Agree to disagree. Bones is better then ever and IMO when he fought Chael that was the biggest gap in talent of any Bones fight in the UFC. Considering how much better Bones is now and how big the gap was between these two fighters. I'm pretty positive that was the biggest favorite he has ever been and that's because the gap in talent was as big as it has ever been. Jones came in to prove a point. But if he also wanted to prove he could stop him quickly with the standup, he could have. Easily IMO.

Would be the first time he ever has. I'm an odds kind of guy. He was coming to prove a point, but doesn't mean he has to end in round 1 to prove that point.

Chael wasn't staying at range. He would have needed a well placed uppercut or a elbow/knee to really hurt him. Yes he trained for a charging style, mostly then defending the TDs. But I think it would have taken him at least a round to really figure out how to capitalize in close via MT clinch, breaking elbow, a circle and set up...ect..
