Cormier wont respect Jones stand at a distance bs, he'll be in his face the whole fight working.
Ofcourse I'm biased, and yes I think Jones would absolutely wreck Cormier at LHW and dominate him at Hw.

I agree. Unless he gets knocked unconscious in the first round, I actually think Mir will sub him.

I also thought he looked bad in that fight, which is one of my reasons for thinking Jones wrecks him. People tried to say that Cormier knew he was going to win the fight and that the guy was a can so he took it easy in the fight/training, but i think thats bullshit. No matter who the opponent is, a professional athlete should train to the best of his ability and fight to the best of his ability, but he looked very flat. Also in his fight against Barnet, Cormier got tagged repeatedly with jabs and knees; I think Jones' striking ability to be much greater than Barnet's, and he is much better at utilizing reach.
That being said, Cormier is a beast and I really like him as a fighter, I just think Jones is the better fighter. I think his MMA wrestling is more than enough to handle Daniel's, his ability to maintain distance on the feet is great, and I think he is a more complete striker/fighter.
The only fight I've really been impressed with Cormier was the Bigfoot fight, but even after he KO'd Overeem I'm still not impressed by Bigfoot as a fighter. I don't believe that he would've KO'd Overeem if he wasn't completely dismissing Bigfoots power/striking ability.
