    LMAO @ the idiots denying this fact. Gusta nullified Jones because of reach and height. Stuffed most of his takedowns.

    That fight was won on conditioning. Gusta was making Jones look silly in the first 3 rounds.

    No, it's because Gustafsson is great, not because Jones isn't.

    Now go fuck yourself.

    Lol @ idiots dismissing GUS' skills and saying he gave a good fight because of his size.

    Gus is a better fight than Evans, Shogun, Rampage, Machida. That's why the fight was close, and FYI Jones still won

    GUS is a talent, no doubt... But those deny that Jonathan's reach had anything to with success are a bunch of blind homers(Watch the response.... or those deny Jones talent are blind haters)..

    So is Gus's size/reach the reason why he has been so successful also?

    No one's saying Gus and Jones are not highly skilled. But Jones' size advantage is the reason he's looked so much better than the rest of the LHW division for so long.

    I was blind. But now I see. Dat reach advantage. It's a big deal.

    And I also think Gus was well prepaired. My goodness.

    Gus is really good, but I think Jones physical advantages were also exposed. He couldnt impose his will, and it was because of the physical aspect AND that Gus was having none of his TD's

    I think most knew he had a big help with his reach advantage but praised Jones for using it so effectively, there are plenty of really long and lanky fighters that have no where near the success Jones has.
