Let's be clear: I strongly believe that the reason jones beat Gus is that he had a more diverse striking game. That being said, I do not think that Gus' cardio was the problem, but rather how many spinning back kicks Jones hit his abdomen with. TJ Dillashaw did an excellent job against Barao in regards to avoiding these, and I know Gus could do it as well if he made a diligent effort during his training camp. In addition, I would absolutely not lay off of the TDD if I were him. Keep it going strong, and don't let Jones' takedowns hinder him. Check those atrocious "oblique kicks" that Rogan loves oh-so-much by jerking the knee tight (maybe there's a better way? Just my best guess), and check the low kicks. Gus's hands appear to be the better between the two fighters. I've seen that sometimes Jones' spinning back elbows simply can't be avoided. My advice in that regard, is to avoid the clinch and stick to striking distance for as long as possible. Anybody have anything else? Constructive criticism I suppose.
