Go suck on Jones' Bone.
He also snaps during his combos, and almost always gets the back. That's why he's such a good wrestler.

Lol yeah he's going to do those things to Jones. Have ever wrestled in your life? I'm not talking about backyard wrestling.

DC is more of a clinch TD artist in MMA but that doesn't mean that he can't or won't shoot on his opponents. He's a former Olympian and was captain of their Freestyle wrestling team. That's a pretty big deal. If I were him I'd be training my shot (with setups) a lot to get in and score some singles, doubles and/or high-c's. He likes to grab a high-crotch then elevate his opponents and slam them down on their backs (ie. Barnett & Hendo). His clinch TD's are some of the very best in the sport. That much we know.

Out wrestling a slow as hell barnet and Henderson, whose mma wrestling sucks. Lets not forget, Henderson was out wrestled by Rampage Jackson when the fought on live tv. Remember? And Jake shields totally dominated Henderson for 4 rounds.

Jones is going to be a much different story. Jones isn't slow and has only been taken down 1x time in mma.

Wtf? DCs speed is one of the things that sets him apart. He's much faster than jones who is pretty slow on his feet.

I swear that people just look at body type and don't actually watch the fights.

DC is much quicker than Jones. I've never heard Jones be called fast or quick in my life, honestly. He's got crazy physical tools and is a technician. Let's not add BS on top of his actual skills and attributes
