    I think Dos Santos would crack Jones.

    You are right. Jones is nothing without his physical advantages and would have a lot of trouble with JDS.

    Although JDS looked slower to me against miocic, he would KO Jones easily.

    Jones best bet would be to dance around and use his speed and varied attacks against JDS but it would be like a toucan pecking at a rhino, zero fucks would be given.

    Jon Jones will NEVER fight JDS.

    He looked pretty bad, credit to Stipe, yes it wasn't just a bad showing by JDS and Stipe had a lot to do with it, but JDS didn't look like his normal quick and fearless self. He looked much slower and tentative.

    The way he leans to one side while trying to dodge punches with his hands down is open to a big head kick from jones, just saying if JDS cant knock em out early he might get beat up. Still would be going for JDS

    Stipe isn't great. He's a pretty good HW who exploited JDS' bad boxing defense for 2 rounds, then started fading and took some big shots. Jones and Stipe aren't close skill wise.

    As a match-up though, JDS' durability, TDD and boxing combinations match up well with Jones' skillset. Jones is a good striker, but his boxing isn't good, and boxing defense is JDS' and Jones' biggest weakness thus far.

    Jones would likely win though, his distancing is better and he's the grappling aggressor, meaning JDS would be on the back foot, but without the slick movement of Gus. That power though is a equalizer many a time.

    Jones is more skilled at everything. Striking, wrestling, Judo and Jiujitsu.

    I agree but I think he lacks the power that JDS has in spades. 1 clean on could change the momentum of the fight, maybe even end it.

    Stipe gave the best fight of his life. But JDS did not look like the wrecking ball he used to be. That, and he is still making the same damn mistakes. If JDS fights anything like Cormier, I can see JDS ruining Jones' brain. JDS hits way harder than Cormier.

    I don't see Jones having an easy time with JDS. Maybe Jones can beat him with a good strategy, but he's not going to run through him.

    Jones via UD. People underestimate the power of Jones.

    I didn't even read what you wrote, only with the title I can answer.

    A HW fight is a HW fight, everyone can get knocked out, including Jones.

    With that said, Jones is by 100000000 miles a better fighter than JDS. Not only on paper with his record but skill wise the most. JDS recently has been showing us his flaws and weak points when it comes to fighting and I gotta admit, I was maybe overrating JDS a bit in the past.

    One thing I can say for sure is that Jones will have trouble with JDS. This is a dangerous man, capable of taking the meanest beatings for 5 rounds, Jones wont bring that Cain brutally to the cage that JDS suffered.

    Wait what? Are where really people who believe in this kind of bullshit? Jones got hurt badly by Gustafsson, and JDS are alot scarier boxer.

    I don't believe JDS is the same fighter he was before he lost to Cain twice. Pre Cain I think he could have beaten Bones but not anymore. Once you reach the top and fall from it fighters are never the same.
