If someone with similar leg reach throws a teep it is much easier to defend, you simply have to move your lead leg backwards so you are avoiding the kick while basically switching stance and then you blast a kick off your usual lead leg (obviously it's still not your lead leg when you have switched stance).

Gus has good enough footwork to eat those knee teeps (which don't even hurt if you check it as there's no weight on your leg whilst it is in the air) and land his own heavy round kicks.

This could be a great striking war if Bones wants it to be, unfortunately he can take Gus down at will and impose his will from there.

Good point. If JBJ lands them while Gus is moving forward then they will be effective (similar to Condit vs Hardy), but Gus is a veteran. Unlike Rampage, he won't just lean on his front leg and let JBJ use it against him.

Haters.

While Gus is maybe (machida) the best pure striker he's faced but saying he is a class above Jones is crazy. Reach or not he has out-struck everyone. He wont be out-matched by Gus and I predict Jones would want to keep it standing because he will want to beat Gus where he is strongest. However if he starts to get lit up.....easy sub time.

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

He did not out strike most of them. He wrestled and pounded them first. Jones will try to look like "i wanna strike" but as soon as he gets opportunity to clinch he will try to take Gus down.

Gus will only lose the standup if he tries to avoid takedowns or if he first gets beaten up on the mat. I am 90% sure of this.

What is so cool about looking at the wall in a face off?

I like MMA less because of this forum

Championship fight between two of the division's youngest and best fighters comes down to how long their legs are?

What is happening around here lately...

People are trying to find any reason why Gus stands a chance. Trying to convince themselves that this fight is anything but one sided.

I don't care if it's one sided.

it's possibly the biggest fight in Swedish combat sports history since Ingemar Johansson won the world heavyweight championship in 1932. That's pretty cool.
