The point is, it's easy to out wrestle "everyone he's faced" when you haven't face one good wrestler yet. Henderson, is arguably the best wrestler that dc has face, yet henderson mma wrestling sucks. Henderson was out wrestled by jake shields. Out wrestled by rampage jackson. yes, rampage freaken jackson. Maybe you forgot about that match.
The difference is, Jones is a dominant mma wrestler who has destroyed real wrestlers. Bader, Sonnen, guys that win by their wrestling.
love when idiots make this argument about Hendo. You do realize that Rampage had pretty awesome wrestling once upon a time right? Also, Jake Shields has pretty much grapple-raped every person he's beat in his career right. Getting out grappled by a high level grappler like Shields isn't and should not be a knock on anyone.
And what does Mir being KO'd by other BIG hw's have anything to do with how strong he is? Isn't there a video floating around of Mir being able to get the best of JBJ? The same Mir that DC was controlling? The same DC that's going to fight JBJ soon?
