    If Jones decides to not roid, and not eye gouge, it could be competitive.

    Jon is way better on the feet, but Phil is a good at grappling. An early upset submission is not likely for Phil to pull off, but possible.

    Jon wins 4 or 5 times.

    Very solid, and Jones is just as good if not better than both of them. It's MMA not a D1 wrestling match. DC vs Jones pretty much tells you all you need to know about how elite Jons mma wrestling is.

    He is not an easy fight, but there is no doubt in my mind that Jones would win.

    Nope. Not the kind of wrestler that would pose any threat to Jones. Jones by keeping the distance and smashing him with punches and kicks.

    Phil Davis’s wrestling may be the single most overrated thing in MMA. Jones would absolutely squash Davis.

    Phil Davis just flat out lacks the offensive prowess to even hang with Jones. It be interesting if Phil put on some weight and caught Jon in one of his wicked ground chokes but Jones would have to be in REALLY bad shape for him to even be in such a position

    People saying Davis is a bad matchup for Jones don't seem to be taking into account that Jones is about as bad as a matchup for Phil as it gets.

    Jones is a better striker and he has the grappling to negate all of Phil's TD attempts.

    No eyepokes and Phil gets the same supplements as Jon, it could be competitive.

    Lol no. Anyone who can't out wrestle Rashad and Bader is not doing it to Jones.

    Phil Davis is a nice guy. Good fighter.

    Jones would absolutely beat him down everywhere. He would not be able to outstrike, out grapple, or control Jon in any way.

    That and the Sonnen fight were Rashad's last good, dominant wins.

    Doubt it... Davis has never lived up to the hype. Jones would cruise to a victory. Not even sure it would be a big PPV...
