    We're on the same page. Had Gus been a little more confident and pressed the stand-up a little more, Jones might not have had the space to setup the spinning elbow that more or less ended Gus' night.

    Jones had nothing for Gus going backwards and Gus was easily commanding Jon's retreat so a little more aggressiveness by Gus would have changed everything. Something that can only be learned in battle I guess...

    I am curious to see whether dc can close the distance. He is facing a pretty big height/reach disadvantage and jones is great defensively.

    The wrestling will probably be negated, although I can see DC landing a double or two.

    Yeah. This is also something that Josh Barnett talked about on the Joe Rogan podcast a while back. He said that Gustafsson had a lot of success but didn't really capitalize much on the many openings he created, or Jones' himself created. Jon turning his head in reaction to being punched and looking away briefly was something that was discussed. He wasn't trying to roll (aka fade or pull) with the punch, it was just a bad habitual reaction to eating punches at times. This didn't look good for Jon, he looked like he'd really never been popped hard in the face before.

    Jones snitches on pot smokers.
    You would be in jail if he knew who you were.
