    Know one ever expected these 2 phenoms to be so dominate in wrestling. They both been taken down a couple times, but that's it.

    This is a tough one but who do you believe is the best in mma wrestling?

    GSP has the more explosive double leg. Jones is way better in the clinch. Overall I think Jones is better. It's marginal.

    Offensively and defensively GSP was superior. However, Jones is far more effecive in the clinch.

    I believe GSP edges this but only just.

    GSP for single and double legs.

    JJ for trips and throws.

    Both have disgustingly good top control but JJ uses more weapons once in a dominant position.

    Post serra gsp was always able to go to the ground and implement his gameplan.
    Post dc 2 Jones is not a very good wrestler, he is way less explosive and just depend to much on the clinch

    Jon's takedowns hadn't looked very good since he stopped fighting MW's. GSP's takedowns are better definitely.

    GSP marginally, but just because he relies much more on wrestling than Jones. But once on the ground, what happens? Jones on top of you is a death sentence, GSP is a snoozefest.

    GSP is #1 in takedowns in UFC history.
