I'm gonna come out and say it, I thought DC was going to win. Never counted out Jones but I thought DC was going to be able to close the distance and rough him up whether it was with straight clinch work and wrestling positioning or whether it was dirty boxing. He did good with the dirty boxing but when it came down to technique and position, Jones almost outclassed the Olympian in the clinch and the takedown department. Now with that said, after tonight although I'm now convinced a pure grappling style of fighting will not win a fight against Jones, I'm still not convinced he's unbeatable even in the slightest. When Cormier had energy and made it a point to strike on the inside, he roughed up Jones pretty good, which leads me to the Mauler. Right now I think if anyone's going to beat Jones it is Gus(Cormier still has the potential and I expect improvements). Gus obviously showed he has the striking offense to compete with Jones while his defense leaves more to be desired but he showed improvements in the Manuwa fight. As far as grappling goes Gus is perfect. When he initiated it against Jones in their first affair it was purely for points and he didn't extend the grappling affair and let the fight go right back to striking. When Jones initiated a clinch on Gus, Gus didn't even think about trying to fight him there and got out of all of Jones clinch attempts almost immediately and went right back to striking. When Jones got the takedown in the fifth, Alex didn't try to play the guard game, he immediately went to wall walk and got right back up to a striking affair. Overall if Gus can fight like he did last time against Jones, just with better striking defense(easier said than done obviously) then imo it's his fight to lose.
