Jones wins but Im going to admit this is his most difficult opponent/competition coming in to the fight. I felt comfortable with Jones vs Gus even though that wound up being somewhat close. The only other fight I had goosebumps going into was Machida even though I felt he would win, every other fight I thought he would walk right through them like a french double door that was opened for you buy butlers so you don't have to put your hands on the door and you walk through them with ease.

DC wont be used to Jones speed and length.
I would say Cain is far better than Jones and would win easily. Cormier fights him daily and ties most of the time.

And i suspect the odds will even out a little more. This is going to be the clash of two "unbeatable" fighters so odds should be pretty even. Jones gets the edge because hes champ.
Gus prior fight against Shogun he didn't looked that great. Shogun took him down a couple times and might of won the first round.

I clearly remember thinking Gus didn't stand a chance. I thought for sure he needed at least one more year to continue to develop his ground game before he could threaten Jones. His -900 line didn't bother me at all.

My guess is that those lines may even become closer to dead even towards the last days before the fight.

This fight is going to really be hard to predict imho, because it all boils down to who is able to keep the fight at their particular range. Inside DC will maul bones, outside JBJ picks him apart. Who can control the distance this one is fought at, wins.

Lol people in that thread went full retard. Everyone was acting like Jones could also pick up and slam Barnett because he's a catch wrestler. I blame ufc for marketing warmaster as a 155 fighter.
