If they can't adjust their style to the threat of takedowns then that makes them poor strikers in mma. This isn't k1.
He's one of a kind. He's tall, lengthy, athletic and awesome reflex (hence the great TDD) unlike Struve. And he would embarass Weidman if he moved up to his proper weight class. I really do believe he will attain the LHW belt.

Having said it does not take away from the striking prowess of Machida/Silva.

Anderson's one of my fav but I'd actually give him a shot over Jones more so than Gus.
