    DC choked


    You do not try to outwrestle a taller wrestler with leverage from the clinch for obvious reasons. His gameplan was supposed to spam the takedowns like Cain did with JDS and this was obvious as he stated it multiple times.


    Unfortunately he talked to much and probably panicked, he stuck to one aspect to try uppercuts from the clinch and occasional takedowns from the clinch. If he had spammed takedowns and failed only to land uppercuts from the clinch he would have eaten alot less kicks and had Jones defending more, so he would expend less energy.


    Even Luke said DC did not stick to the gameplan which is unfortunate... AND STILL

    Do you think DC can make another run?

    *Says his gameplan didn't work*
    *uses Rockhold saying he didn't use the gameplan as evidence*

    DC's would fare better in a rematch than Roy did against Tarver

    DC didn't choke, his body (i.e. cardio) just didn't let him continue to push that pace.

    Jones wasn't winning the fight by the 4th round. It was an extremely competitive fight but many people overlooked a very important aspect of fighting which is endurance.

    Jones won 4 rounds [email protected] not winning the fight. DC knows he was losing to.

    If you know wrestling, you know you don't try and take down someone MUCH taller than you from the clinch.

    Jones will just push you down with his massive upper body strength. He should have just spammed the takedowns like Cain did. They make you super tired and keep you guessing

    Yes, keep spamming for takedowns and leave your head/neck open for Jones to snatch up a guillotine.

    Smart!

    Rd 1 Jones
    Round 2 Cormier
    Round 3 Draw

    So yeah, he wasn't winning the fight. Change your signature too, you fucking tool.

    Keep chasing him down and eat elbows and kick to take away your cardio

    I don't know who did the predictions before the fight but he also had it right. Jones UD 49-46. Well done that man

    So against a guy with huge reach he should have been shooting from 3 feet out?

    I know your being sarcastic, but if you really didn't know that, then you really should

    Every short wrestler I've ever seen works from tie ups.

    Its true, but Jones is 6'4 and Dc is 5'9. The leverage is not on your side as shown in the fight. Every time DC tried Jones just pulled him down and DC couldn't even get a hold of his legs. When Alex Took Jones down it wasn't from the clinch, he charged in and we all know Alex is not a wrestler.

    Jones took his endurance with body shots and making him carry his weight in the clinch.

    DCs best shot was in Jones face and in the clinch but Jones simply beat him in the clinch.

    There is no magic formula to beat Jones. You just have to be better than him.

    I'm not saying DC would have won. But he could have pushed harder if wouldn't have attempted all his td's from the clinch. Also, more lateral movement would have helped

    Hopefully DC has it in him to make another run

    Great video, but mma wrestling is quite different than ufc wrestling. For one they don't have a cage and can throw strikes to confuse you
