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.

Proud member of the church of JBG and follower of His true disciples.

May He grant His blessings upon the War Wagon of Daniel Cormier.

Sig bet with Lelouch for Jones/DC.

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

Machida, Anderson Silva, Aldo

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.
