I think there both the hardest fighters they've fought, cormier is his biggest test because of the style matchup along with the skill and obviously this is cormiers biggest test as well. I have been saying cormier will win but its more like saying I finally think this is the guy that can beat jones I have no idea if he will but I think if he has no problem taking bones down that the fight is his

DC has done so much work having wars in training with the best fighter in all of MMA Cain Velasquez. Jones skills isnt going to shock DC the way some people here think.

Cormier needs to be able to cut off the cage from Jones and corner him to unleash his fury, his center of gravity is low enough (and he knows how to use it) that Jones will have a ridiculously hard time getting a takedown.

So basically he needs to not be afraid to eat shots (he isn't, he's always fought with a reach disadvantage) and work on his footwork so Jones can't just jog away from him whenever he gets pressured (like he did against Rampage and others)

imo he's wildly different from Gus though, Jones shouldn't have taken this fight.

You guys keep confusing "better" with "bigger".

Just because Cain might be able to beat Jones in a fight, doesn't make him a better fighter.

Cain could beat Aldo in a fight, doesn't make him a better fighter.

Jones has far more tools in his arsenal than Cain and IMO has a better fight IQ.

Cain is not a better fighter than Jones. Also, Jones hasn't lost to anyone in his division.

Cormier fought huge guys the size of Jones. The reach is a different story though.
