You noob clowns first have to understand difference between ring and the cage, and Pride rules and unified rules. In ring Jones's reach and movement advantage is significantly lesser than in octagon. Also without elbows, there is a good chance that Fedor or Cro Cop would wreck him in the ring where they could close the distance much more effectively and close him on ropes or trap him in corners. Also for CC comparision that some of you use, CC is a ring fighter. He is handicaped in cage due to bigger space where it is much easier to avoid his strikes, due to fence wall n stall and unified rules that favour wrestling, clinching and elbows. And it is also lot easier to take man down in cage than in ring. Prime Cro Cop is in cage only 50% fighter that he is in the ring. All his movement, ring cutting and strike timing habbits that he picked up in years of boxing and K-1 are also valid in the ring, because it is the same environment.
