    he will be the first guy who can threaten the takedown on Jones forcing him to be tentative and drop his hands a lot

    By not giving a fuck, which will work till about the third at which point he'll most likely be pretty beat up. I think Jones is gonna finish him late like the 4th.

    Sonnen is 6'1 and he had no issue closing the gap

    Its not just Jones reach its the way he controls distance and pace. DC is going to have a ard time dealing with all the talents of Jones. 4Th round tko for the champ.He'll bust his bubble by the end of the second.

    He will close the distance just like Sonnen did. Cormier also has quite a big reach for his size iirc

    cool your sensitive ass down. I meant he looked short. Shall I call him a dwarf... would that make your PC, vegan ass feel better?

    Okay, DC looked like Gimli next to Jones. There you go.

    yeah but it seemed like Jones had absolutely no respect for Sonnen, so he let him get inside.

    I don't think Jones was too worried about Chaels wrestling in that fight.

    I'm pretty sure Jones wanted to wrestle Sonnen.
