    Jones should beat Alex. Jones is better everywhere. Yes, even striking. Jones can mix up his techniques a lot better which will disrupt Alex's timing which will (all of this in theory of course) make him unusually gun-shy. And of course Jones could take him down and submit him.

    Jones should fight Hendo and Glover and maybe Machida again before moving up to HW.

    Yea, he looks like he has t-rex arms. He wouldn't beat Rashad, how many slow predictable overhands did he eat from shogun? Hendo only needs one.

    Goose is overrated, machida, rashad, Hendo would beat him. Mousasi, Glover, and even Bader would give him problems and of course Davis would beat him AGAIN. Outta all those guys he beat possibly the most washed up fighter there and managed to get away from everyone else. How the fuck does that put you at number 2 in the division?


    Shit Chael Sonnen would probably ground and pound him to a decision.

    Cut the reach talk, Goose is 6'4 with a 75" reach.

    Its hilarious he's at number 2 on the rankings when the only person he's beat is Shogun who is at 7. Qualified match? Yea right.

    I think they dodged a bullet pulling outta the mousasi fight. Easy ass fight for Jones against a guy with no wrestling, it'll be like Goose vs Davis. Remember Jones doesn't want to fight machida again because he's "tricky".

    I could see Alex giving Jones some problems...he has length, heart, good cardio, and is improving...the question is just how far he has really came.

    But yeah Jones probably wins, unfortunately.

    That's probably the easiest match for him right now? That's the only qualified match for him right now. Lmfao!

    Jones will destroy Gus and then talk about the reach thing.

    He will take Gus down and gnp or submit him, IMO.
