I'd put my money on Bones. Roger was very smart and managed to keep Randleman at bay with a superior reach advantage, and it went really well. He doesn't have that against Jones, if anything Jones has a slight advantage and is so much more faster and explosive than Randleman.

Roger did look awesome on the ground though, but he did have trouble trying to get it there until that big knee dropped him.

Interesting though.

Bones would throw him on his head repeteadly, and not follow him to the ground.

if he's smart and follows the gameplan, he'll outpoint Gracie all day and maybe even finish him standing.

Jon Jones wins in the first minute, or in the last minute. His choice!

Roger wouldn't get Jones to the ground! Roger wouldn't enjoy such a huge reach advantage as against Kevin.. plus Jones is the much better striker.

So Jones like SJ said, whenever he wants to finish him^^

worst matchup ever. Roger Gracie will never be at the level jon jones is at now, let alone what he could become.

after watching roger fight, he doesn't stand a chance against jones. Jones is too fast and explosive, i would bet on a first round (T)KO.

Favorite fighters:

1. Connor Mcgregor
2. Dominick Cruz
3. Joanna jedrzejczyk
4. Anthony Pettis
5. Ronda Rousey

Gracie fought a really one dimensional fighter in Randelman. Jones is not one dimensional. Gracie would get eaten up in a quick minute. He would not be able to use his reach, and size.

Please tell me this is a troll thread. I don't even like Jones but he crushes Roger Gracie right now.

I'm going with Jones. His length combined with his athleticism would give Gracie problems on the feet, and his wrestling would allow him to determine where the fight went.
