Oh yeah, just saying Jones said just do it because of the positive response Cain got for saying it to Mr. Fury. Doesn't work that well giving the context.
You ever think that Jones said "just do it because, he is sponsored by NIKE.........
Nah you're probably right, Jones chose to use the most popular merchandising phrase because he wanted to be like Cain...

Daniel Cormier is the best fighter in the world. There is currently not a single fighter in MMA that can beat him, period. Not Cain, not Overeem, not JDS, not Jones, not Hendo, not Anderson Silva... no one. He is going to make short work of Mir and Jones if those fights ever happen.
Seriously what does Jones have to offer Cormier? Nothing. He can't stand with him and good luck grappling with him. Someone will point out the size difference and I will be the first to point out this the man that ragdolled Bigfoot and Barnett, two the biggest fighters in all of MMA. Jones you better enjoy that title because it is only a matter of time because Cormier is taking it from you.
I find it comforting that you made this prediction, since Your love for wrestlers seems to cloud your judgement sometimes.
As far as striking goes, I would say tat Bones is better than anyone Cormier has faced. He was getting tagged by knees and jabs when he faced Barnet. Also, Jones wrestling>>>Barnets and is much better at utilizing his reach/keeping distance than anyone DC has faced. That lateral drop DC pulled last fight was beautifully set up though. I imagine the Jones vs Sonnen fight will be very telling of his actual wrestling ability. I just think Jones will attack DCs legs like he does everyone else and eventually take him down for a TKO stoppage via Elbows.
Jones Era >> Machida Era
Favorite fighters: Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, BJ Penn, Melvin Gulliard, Jose Aldo, Dominic Cruz
