I think Jones wins standing or on the ground. Gus gets hit WAY too much for me to think otherwise. He looks like he lost in half the fights he wins. Gus is a great fighter, but I think he does not have the style to make this fight competitive.

I know it's crazy right! So used to Jones looking huge compared to everyone he faces.

Pumped for this fight! Really hope Gustaffson makes it interesting.

Everyone talks negatively about Jon's striking, "he's not that good its his reach and size"

Or "I cant wait to see what Jones looks like against a good striker that hes not larger than"

They have yet to look at Gus with the same scrutiny, I dont think Gus has a advantage striking.

I want to see a legit reach comparison because I thought there was a big difference by the UFC fight night numbers but they look damn close to me there

Per Wikipedia:

JBJ 84.5
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Jones_(fighter)

Gustaf 76.5
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexander_Gustafsson

Giving up 8 inches (giggity), but showing a 1 inch height advantage for Gustaf.

Alexander is bigger, younger, as fast and definitely stronger than Jones. This will be a competitive fight, but it is Alexander's to lose.

Stronger than Jones? Not likely. Jones has finished guys with ease who Gus could never finish on his best day. You'll see come the slaughter that will be this fight. It isn't Gus's fight to lose by any means, he is a massive underdog and with good reason. The difference in competition between the two is huge as well, Gus is number one mostly because the LHW division is rather weak, Gus's best win is a decision over Shogun and his next best win is Thiago Silva. Nothing in either of those fights suggested he has the style to beat the destroyer that is JBJ.

Yes we will see my friend. Just do not come crying saying it was a fluke after Alexander has Jones curling up a wounded dog on the mat with his face busted open.

The staredown thing isn't a big deal, honestly. It's better than two guys looking at eachother looking like they're trying to see who can drop a deuce the fastest.

Gustaf looks pretty big. While I think Jones will win a decision, I do not think this fight will be easy for him in the slightest.
This. Not an easy fight by any means for Jones, maybe even his toughest yet, but he pulls through for the decision IMO.
