Jones and DC are both very good wrestlers. DC can definitely be said to be the better wrestler and I can agree with that. But Jones is the better overall fighter. DC will have some huge weaknesses in his fight against Jones. Being a short stocky fighter myself, I know my weaknesses and I see them glaring in DC's game. That being; DC's grappling game (being submitted) and his stand up game. (Being outclassed) DC has been doing mma just for a little bit, his technical level in mma generally isn't that high compared to others, he hasnt had enough time to develop in striking and submissions. He's been fighting and wrecking through one dimensional fighters using his extremely good one dimensional wrestling ability (naturally). DC's Wrestling is his route to victory, BUT, how will he be able to apply his wrestling with a superior striker and bjj guy in Jones? Jones is an incredible clinch fighter, his knees will be much more effective on the much smaller fighter that DC is, Jones also has incredible elbows to infight with. It just so happens that when it comes to striking, DC being as little as he is compared to Jones, would only be able to attack Jones on the inside, a place he isn't skilled enough to fight Jones in. To me, that rules out Cormier winning by technical striking barring of course a Hail Mary knock out blow. Another thing Jones has is choking submissions. Though it's easier to tap out a taller/lankier fighter with a limb submission (naturally) it's also easier to choke out a smaller fighter. Jones long arms and legs will make putting a triangle choke or a standing guillotine even easier than the one he did on Machida and almost had on Rampage when he pulled guard. If Cormier had more time to develop (which he doesn't have much at his age) he'd be the perfect candidate to beat Jones. He already has a short stocky frame and superior Wrestling to dictate where the fight goes, but unfortunately he doesn't have the skills yet to win anywhere he takes the fight to. I'm rooting for him obviously, but unless Cormier comes In with at least one fourth the boxing skills of Mike Tyson and the grappling/submission knowledge of an experienced submission fighter, he is going to lose a decision where he gets picked apart, or a submission loss to Jones.
