This time yesterday, the majority opinion seemed to be "Jones would beat every heavyweight except for maybe Cain and even that would be a really close fight" and of course that was based on the fact that he had DOMINATED every LHW he had ever faced and people assumed that was mostly skill (and a little bit the size) but then tonight he faced someone who is much closer in size. A man with a 76inch reach (Jones is 84 so he still had a decent advantage) and the fight just happens to turn out to be an almost dead even fight. Now is it possible that Alexander Gus is just that much better than every LHW Jones has ever fought? It's POSSIBLE.... but I seriously doubt it. He wasn't fighting scrubs he was fighting guys considered some of the best LHW's of all time like Shogun and Lyoto and Rampage (not to mention Rashad) So seeing how Gus used his 76 inch reach to make the striking match even and pretty much nullify Jones wrestling. Let's take a quick look at the reach of the current top 10 UFC Heavyweights plus the Champ: Overeem: 80 Mir: 79 Barnett: 78 Junior Dos Santos: 77 Cain: 77 Browne: 80 Bigfoot: 82 Cormier: 72 Werdum: 77 Nelson: 73 Stipe Miocic: 80 Now that's interesting. ALL but two have longer reach than Gus. of course credit where credit's due, most of them arn't as fast as Gus and they're boxing might not be as good, but they surely make up for that in other areas. So does this information coupled with what you saw change how you see Jones potential fights at HW going?
