Obviously the bulk of the attention is on Jones coke/T:E levels, but have most people accepted yet that Jones is just above average/mediocre with his boxing? His kickboxing looked better, but he was getting tooled hands wise. Both in boxing range and when Cormier decided to dirty box (throwing uppercuts instead of trying to purely grapple). DC was also able to close the distance without much trouble. Kinda ironic considering Jones was touted as the better striker and DC the better wrestler. That made it all the more frustrating for me personally, watching DC have much more success striking than wrestling, yet even so continued to initiate the clinch/TD attempts. Even his coach before the 4th was like "You're a better wrestler. Take him down!". No. Just no. At least not in that fight. Don't take this as me saying Jones is a bad striker, cause he isn't. He however isn't as elite as most fans thought, and I think it's safe to say his wrestling ability is a strong component of making his striking game look better than it actually is. It makes his Klitschko and Mayweather comments look that much more silly at this point. I do think he underestimated Gus going into their 1st fight, but this fight proved to me Alex can do what he did again so long as he can stop the TD.
