huh? jones isn't quick, he catches people by surprise sure but only because he has a varied attack. He's good at range and good with the clinch and top game and Gustafsson i can't see how he wins this at all especially since he said he would win this fight on the outside which is retarded.

...Quite simply, Gus has earned his title shot but JBJ will make him look a bit silly fighting for it. Gus really is outmatched by Jon in every aspect. Yes- Gus has good hands, good wrestling, good submissions, good footwork and uses his reach well----with that said Jon Jones does ALL of those things and them some on a whole other level. Gus will be a little test for Jones but that's it. Jones with a finish if it goes to the ground a or UD...it won't be that close.

...Since Gus has those long legs, I'm real curious to see if Gus slams some hard legkicks right into the meat of JBJ's comically thin legs. If successful, it could make things become very interesting...

If he can use his kicks and bait Jones in with his footwork, he could beat Jones on the outside.

He won't though.

If you think Jones is better in every aspect than Gus then you believe the hypes. Same could be said of Roy Jones, Mike Tyson and others who were said to be unbeatable. Suddenly they have the best everything.

Jon Jones has better hand speed than Gus? No
Can Jon Jones take a punch better than Gus ? I do not think so
Footwork, Jon Jones is faster on his feet than Gus ? Nope
Punching power, you sure Jon Jones punch harder than Gus ? I am not sure about it

No offense but I think you may be slightly biased. You weren't quoting BrutalKO correctly, you were putting words in his mouth persay. He said JBJ is better at practically everything, which is true. If you think Gus is better at something, what is it? And prove it?

Why does someone have to prove it? How would you even go about proving something like speed, chin or foorwork?

Just curious, based on what, why do you feel so confident in those arguments?

it's how you hit that's more important than how fast you do it which is why Jones is so good, he rarely telegraphs his attacks and he's very unpredictable and that greatly outmatches speed alone

I'd like to see your reasoning, yes. And no, it would only be biased if I were a Jon Jones fan. I'm not, therefore my opinion can't be biased. You however, with a username like Gustafsson Fan, could definitely be interpreted as being "biased."

He/She doesn't have to, I just asked if he/she could. And you could probably start by looking at both fighters previous fights, and looking at there speed, chin, and footwork.
