    Yes, in the sense that he throws them because he doesn't have a short hook or uppercut worth shit and will be blasted in that range come Saturday.

    He will for sure be throwing some of those wicked elbows in the clinch, and on the ground, if the fight goes there. They may be what ends the fight.

    I like that push-down, step in elbow. That seems like a nice, close quarter self defense move, on top of MMA practicality.

    I loved how Jones took care of that stupid pawing shit Rashad always does. Jones just grabbed his pawing hand and elbowed him in the face repeatedly. It was beautiful.

    They are viscous alright. Don't like that they emphasized the cutting part, doesn't feel particularly sportsmanlike.

    What if your elbows aren't pointy?

    What he meant is that Jones doesn't typically have a go-to short range punch with power like a good short hook or uppercut. The uppercut to the body was great but Shogun was beaten down badly for like 13 minutes or whatever it was before tapping to strikes. Shogun ate a flying knee immediately in round 1 and was on auto-pilot for the entire fight, more or less. So, what you're showing isn't really saying as much as you think it is. Gustafsson has brutally uppercuts and hooks from the clinch. He's a boxer, he specializes in throwing his fisticuffs. Jones, on the other hand, certainly is no boxer and doesn't put his punches together. Jones also doesn't hit very hard, Gus does.

    Doubt standing elbows will make a difference in this fight. Gustafsson will be out of range of them.

    Me: "Short range bla bla bla..."

    Sherdog: "Punch thrown from medium range in YO FACE SUCKA! LAWL! YOU SO STOOPID!"

    Oh Sherdog...

    Thanks for clarifying mate.

    Yeah the elbows are a substitute for short range punches. His long limbs aren't the best there.
