Has Jon Jones ever been taken down in the UFC?

I don't really remember. Maybe in the 3rd round of the Bonnar fight?

I remember Jones sprawling a lot against O'Brien.

Thanks. He gassed himself out with those crazy throws and poor ground control.

He doesn't look impossible to take down but he looks impossible to hold down.

yep and many still question his gas tank. i mean there is only so many times u can throw a 220 lb dude over your head and not get tired.

slams are awesome crowd pleasers, but offer low reward for the amount of energy you expend. see gsp and fitch, if they have back control standin, they jus lay their weight ontop of their opponent to fatigue them to the floor.

i dont expect to see any more german suplexes from jones.

Thats all relative to the situation and if your in great condition you should be able to slam 5 times around and not gas. A good slam can break bones, help you escape from a sub and knock the wind out of the opponent.
