Boxing is Jones worst aspect. Have always said he lacked KO power and was often very hesitant when it comes to striking with his hands. Gustafsson lit him up with his hands, thank God Jones has great kicks and a nice spinning elbow.

Jon's best weapon is his elbow, by far. Then its his long legs which he can whip out pretty hard. His punches really don't look that effective

LOL what a BS excuse. No Jon, your problem was the fact that you couldn't take Gus down. You tried 12 times and only succeeded once remember?

What excuse was there.

He is saying he should of practiced his wrestling rather than focusing on his striking and it showed.

It was a strange comment. He was throwing twice as many kicks.

I wouldn't fancy Jones striking me; how often does he connect?

Awesome because it's true.

I dunno though, never wrestled.
I have wrestled, it's a lot easier to get trips on people if you are much taller, it also helps to have stronger hips, Jones was shorter than Alex and has a weaker lower body. I thought Jones would have trouble with trying to wrestle Alex but not nearly as much as he did, Alex is clearly stronger than Jones and worked with Phil and some of the other wrestlers he works with on takedowns from the clinch a lot.

Alex was also able to drag Jones to the cage and stand right up when he did get taken down which showed just how strong his hips are. I don't think anyone in the division is as strong as Alex is.

if he got two to the arm for every time he flinched in this fight Gus would still be punching him
