Jones is great and he has been impressive in dominating lots of LHW fights. But Cain is not a LHW, he is a big badass HW. And not just anyone badass HW, he is the best in the world. Cain would win this fight in less then 3 mins.
yes but bader, hammil, vlad, etc had better wrestling then jones and he took them down with ease. fitch, koscheck and hughes had better wrestling than gsp and he took them down with ease. Mma wrestling and takedows are different and not sure cain, would be the fight that you would say "hes too big and strong for jones" compared to the other hw's. and shogun fought guys like overeem and diabate that had long reaches, but jones is a very different fighter, uses his reach differently and goes for takedowns. Cain fighting brock and kongo with long reaches wouldnt help out much. I do agree that cain would win, but not as easily as I would have thought before.
Overeem is a beast now, and would be able to deal with jone's reach and is harder to take down now, but he still doesnt have top notch wrestling or tdd. That would be a great fight and overeem would be more likely to make jones stand with him than other fighters because he can land his shots by barley getting into jones' range and look at what he can do with his hands, kicks, and knees. jones could get KTFO
