I have seen Cormier's game on top and he does some mistakes which i think Jones could take advantage of. This isn't really an argument, just the way i see it.
Fair enough if it's your opinion, but we have never seen Jones' game from his back, and we've never seen him against a wrestler as good as DC.

I highly doubt JBJ would pull guard and give away his best chance of being in control/winning the fight

Silva never tries to get up, it's the reason I always say his BJJ is overrated, he never uses sweeps or reversals. Anderson just sits on his back and ties up his oponents with his long limbs until he gets a standup. He used to get punished for this in PRIDE (purse deduction) but because the NSAC don't actually know anything about MMA he gets away with it in the UFC.

Oh wait.
I could be mistaken but I think he pulled guard and nearly had a triangle pretty quickly on Rampage before the round ended. I know it's not much but I doubt he's helpless off his back.
