    What a performance by Jon Jones. He out-wrestled DC.. What do you guys think: Is he the best MMA wrestler in the game right now?

    No. Weidman is a better MMA wrestler than them both. DC has no wrestling shot for a single or double leg, which is exactly what I said before these two fought. He couldn't get his clinch-based TDs and as a result lost.

    GSP takes it for me. He's up there with Cain and MM though.

    You should take into account the circumstances, DC was exhausted and would've been taken down by others if they had the said energy level that Jones had. Also, Jones only seems to shine with his wrestling against smaller shorter opponents when he has the extreme leverage advantage. It showed against Gus.
    That said, GSP had the best MMA Wrestling.
