Wow this is getting out of hand, where's the love for our LHW Champ? The way Jones handled Bader was impressive, but only because of Bader's size; he's not great and he was hyped up to make Jones look great, I know some people love Bader but I've never been impressed by him.
I see talk of 'athleticism' creeping in about Jones, this is not enough against Rua. The gap in skills and knowlegde is absolutely vast, and Rua destroyed Overeem twice - he was a bigger LHW than Jones is.
The holes in Jones' stand up are so evident, he's a learning striker. There's no way that Rua doesn't land some solid chin testers on him, and I'm curious to see how Jones deals with multiple hard leg kicks as well. On the ground is where Jones dominates, but again Rua will probably be doing things that Jones is yet to encounter.
I like watching Jones fight and this is a great opportunity for him but I feel that there's too big a difference in certain skills and experience, plus this may have increased his ego even more and that is a factor, and he may well get tooled a bit. Much more interesting fight than Evans though for sure, Jones' wrestling is much more powerful.
