Overframed? Washed out older dudes? Do you even know what you're talking about?
All the guys Jones faced in UFC suffer tons of criticism for their performances irregularities, health and stamina issues. You can run his competition and relate who has which of the listed issues. I don't think I own the truth, but this is where I am basing my feelings at. He is the best among we have now, no doubt, but the level of this competition prevents me from state he is GOAT material at this moment. Young, strong and talented, a lot of potential, but ducking Sonnen in the first and almost getting sub against an one hand Vitor, for example, shows me Jones has holes of his own to resolve.
How on earth is Jones over framed for his division? He's a tall, lanky guy with no weight problems in the past. It's not like he's destroying competition with size either.
Also you have doubts about Jones yet would change the way you look at him if he crushes Gustaffson. Gustafs great but is he really that proven that you're willing to disregard Jones' past competition over Gustaf so easily.

Disregard is a strong word. You used the word, not me. I am not disregarding Jones competition, but the recent performances of those fighters speak for themselves, except Vitor, who is cruising (TRT or not) and almost subbed Jones with a broken hand (and since it was in US, probably TRT free). I never mentioned anything about Gus competition, man. However, I see in Gus youth, potential, hunger, talent and yes, frame to match Jones. That's why I am interested in the fight and Jones crushing Gus would speak volumes to me.
EDIT: I'll revise about he being over framed for the division as a whole. I still think he is a legit champion if he can make weight, but size is helping him a lot comparing to the competition he had. That's my view.
