But it does. Phil Davis was as raw as Gus was back then he just had a better base. Do I think he's gotten better since that fight? Yes. Do I think that matters? No. I think Jones mma wrestling is way better then gus defense & if they clinch which is a Gus strength he's taken down, Jones shoots he's taken down. Gus standing & throwing on the outside don't mean much when the opponent has the same reach. Jones isn't a brawler so it won't be a scenario where it gets crazy & Jones gets clipped from a brawl, he won't showboat like Anderson so he won't get clipped that way either. Best case for Gus would prob rush the pace & keep throwing right down the pipe & try to transition back to his feet quickly like Chuck Liddell. That's my opinion & we'll see but bones will dictate the tempo. The only fighter able to dictate the tempo was Lyoto & he eventually got caught. I would like Gus to win but if I was to bet I would put all money on bones by stoppage before the championship rounds.
