Marcus Jones Vs His Next Opponent

What do you think of Marcus Jones "Big Baby"?

This guy looked really good in his fight. He's flexible, to get that triangle from the guard.

And he seems strong.

strong, no doubt but his standup looked weak, almost uncordinated. He looked like a prying mantis or some sht.

This probably should be in the TUF section...

Marcus was impressive though all the same, didn't see too much of his striking but he looks to have a seriously good ground game. Definitely looking forward to his next fight.

He will do great if he fights someone under six three with zero stand up.

Horrible stand up. A good striker will eat him alive. He does look good on the ground. But I would like to see more of his top position first to be totally convinced. Either way I look forward to his next fight.

Definitely belongs in the TUF section.

But to answer your question, I think that he showed great potential. He just needs to work on his striking. We didn't get to see much of it but he didn't look too comfortable standing up. He finished on the ground very quickly and I loved his transitions.
