First of all, I think his performance against Jones was FKING amazing. Putting that aside, I only think he performed exceptionally against Jones because Jones simply wasn't use to fighting someone roughly his size. Jones is use to fighting guys much MUCH smaller than himself so when he fought Gus, it was something he wasn't use to. Other than that, I think Gus is a good fighter just not as good as he's hyped up to be... He knocked out Jimi Manuwa, who wasn't even ranked in the top 10 at the time. He could only win a decision against an out of prime Shogun. And he's only really finished a bunch of average guys (yes that sounded sexual to me too).
