    Daniel Cormier on why Rashad Evans is a tougher fight than Jon Jones
    http://mmajunkie.com/2014/01/ufc-170...han-jon-jones/
    Cormier said there are numerous reasons to believe Evans would be a tougher fight than Jones (19-1 MMA, 13-1 UFC). It’s a bold statement considering Jones has recorded a record six straight UFC light-heavyweight title defenses and is currently ranked No. 1 in the USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA pound-for-pound rankings.

    But Cormier insists there’s a reason for his belief. In addition to formerly training with Evans, which gave him some valuable intel, Cormier believes he’ll be harder to get to the mat.

    “I don’t mind wrestling a guy with long limbs because I can get to their legs,” Cormier said. “Rashad doesn’t kick as much, and kicking actually feeds your opponent the leg. Jon kicks more, so that’s easier to grab takedowns.”

    Cormier also considers Evans’ one-punch power more of a threat than Jones’.

    This will cause a lot of negative remarks but his logic is actually sound IMO.

    Exactly.

    The key factor is that he thinks it's a tougher fight FOR HIM, based on styles. I mean, he may be completely wrong, but his reasoning is solid at least.

    It makes plenty of sense... pretty good reasoning... the good thing is that he's not putting JJ down, just stating why Rashad will be a tougher match up for him...

    Why do you disagree with his assessment?

    Because bonesknows doesn't know what he's talking about. If DC gets by Rashad, Bones might as well just mail him the belt, because DC is better at everything besides being long.
    USA! USA! USA!

    Stealing is wrong!

    Elbows might change DC's thoughts if he gets the chance, but theres logic to his thoughts.

    Nobody trains UFC it's MMA the UFC is a company not a art.
