    Just LOL.
    Bones is the most overrated grappler in MMA by far. Phil would just need to keep on the outside and he can definitely outgrapple Bones

    I do, I just think Gus actually did improve his wrestling leaps and bounds.

    He will obvious close the distance at some point. He needs to stay on the outside for when Bones throws his erratic and uncalculated strikes

    Phil took Nachida down without having to rock him, and also kept him down for longer periods of time than jones.

    Phil Davis double + top control > Jones.

    Before last night, implying anyone was better than jones at anything was heresy.

    phil has improved a lot from his fight with rashad, He is also not undersized. I think he could take jones down, the striking goes to jones though. Davis, Cormier, glover and gus are all close to jones in weight and functional muscle mass. Not mw's who put on tons of muscle for their frame. They all have a chance

    Bones would destroy phil. We know what bones would do to undersized wrestlers we saw what he did to rashad and chael. But if phil and bones are the same size it would be a different story.

    Gus's clinch defense on show last night. Jones gets almost everyone with that inside trip, but could not get it on Gus.

    However, the only time Jones went for a duck under to double, he got him down (granted Gus popped right back up).

    When have you seen Davis throw people around like Jones does? Or, for that matter, submitting people, deadly ground and pound and also positioning on the ground. Jones by far.

    So 6'2 with 80 inches of reach is now undersized is it?

    Seems like you retards didn't learn your lesson last night. Jon would NOT walk all over Phil even in a stand up fight.
