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
It's not only that Cain is a better wrestler then Jones, it's also that he is a lot bigger. If they were the exact same size I would say this would be a hell of a fight and it would go down to the wire. But they are not the same size and Cain is a lot bigger.
Plus we have seen what happens when Cain gets takendown, he gets right back up. Lesnar took him down twice and Cain spent a total of 10 seconds on the mat and took no damage. We do not know what will happen when Jones gets takendown. Will he pop right back up or will he be a fish out of water? Cain would be the last guy Jones wants to find this out about against. Because when Cain takes people down he pummels them into submission in very violent ways.
