True. But Jones doesn't exactly have a great shot either. It's from the clinch that his takedowns are deadly. Having said that, Im sure Jones knows this and works his shot tirelessly.

Jones is a greco roman clinch guy, I don't think I have ever even seen him shoot of a double leg that wasn't against the fence.

He took Bader down with a double-leg.

Bader also walked into it so he made it easy. The same way Tito cracked Bader, Bader starts every fight the same way.

Jones has moved to almost solely using clinch takedowns, so Gus should not worry about the shot and should focus on JBJ's legs. He may have to trade kicks, but honestly I feel that is a fight he would win.

I picked Jones for this fight and really do hope that I am wrong. Gus does have a chance but for all the reasons mentioned I cannot see him just tsking this. I would however love to see a flash knock out or a Hail Mary type submission with JBJ as the victim; and I am positive I am not the only one with that sentiment.

What is it, a four inch reach advantage for Jones? I dont get the logic when guys act like Gus has a style that's going to be hard for Jones to beat or that Gus's size is going to mess with Jon's striking.

Its going to be Jon's length, size and striking ability that make this a hard fight for Gus to win not the other way around IMO.

I don't see this going anyway other than a clear victory for Jones. I don't see Gus stopping the fight and I don't think any fighter is taking this belt without stopping Jones.

Gus is taller than Jones and has great standup skills including reach, power and footwork. So yes he has the style to beat Jones. Jones cannot stay on safety distance firing single shots or back one step backwards to make opponent swing wild into air. That is what will make this different.

Jones will have trouble doing eye pokes, knee cap kicks and oblique kicks because he will be close to Gus striking range all the time. Furthermore his spinning elbow is probably harder as well since Gus is tall and can hit Jones from above angle i.e overhand.

Not biased at all though right?

Jones via being quicker to the punch and having a more varied attack. The dude is so quick that Gustafsson will only be left wondering what hit him.
