The Shogun fight really has no bearing on this one, and anyone who knows anything about striking will understand why.
Rua and Machida are marvelous strikers, but no one in the division is going to 'pepper' Jones with shots or kick him into submission, or land a heavy overhand counter, because the dude is just too damn long, he covers too much ground and his head is too far away. The answer to this is to get inside his reach, punish his body and head with hooks and uppercuts, push away to avoid the clinch, repeat. And if Jones get's hold of you, a strong TDD and wrestling base is handy, which Rampage does possess.
Quinton is the man best suited for this in the whole division and I don't care what anyone says about who Jones has beat or how dominant he's been, I'm not saying Quinton will win the fight or saying anything negative about Jones(just so you know, Limba), I am simply talking styles. Quinton has a style that can quite likely put Jones on his ass, simple.
