And it wasn't height! It was the fact that all the tactics Jones does that has made every other opponent timid didn't slow Gus down at all. Gus didn't care that Jones held his hand out, the eliptical kicks didn't act as a deterrent whatsoever. To top it off Gus had no worries of getting taken down. Gus' apparent iron chin certainly didn't hurt either because he ate a few head kicks and spinning elbows and kept moving forward aside from that one. Both of these guys deserve more credit than saying height is such a factor. They are extremely talented fighters, and even if they were both 6'1 they'd still be killers.
