... for wrestling and takedowns. Now I understand that MMA wrestling is a bit different due to strikes but overall why EXACTLY is Jon Jones able to outwrestle guys like Cormier so well? Cormier has better credentials, has the right build that is suppose to be superior but yet in the clinch, it was clear that Jon Jones had better leverage on him using his height. Jones more times than not had Cormier pushed into the fence when experts thought this is where Cormier would have the advantage. So ... is this theory that low center of gravity is superior false for wrestling? Jones has very skinny legs with a huge upper body and extremely long arms. He seemed to be able to keep his legs away from Cormier's reach in the clinch while he was more easily able to get deep double legs on Cormier thanks to his reach. So far the only person Jones has struggled with takedowns was a guy with little to no wrestling background but was closer to his size in Alexander Gustaffason. Thoughts?
