    ... so can someone explain how or why it looks like Jones height and long limbs helps his leverage and ability to get deep grips on double legs to outwrestle an Olympic wreslters like Cormier???

    Very simple. Jones is much better athlete and MMA wrestling is very different from wrestling

    Yeah its interesting that the only man who took JJ down (more than once) is Gus, a dude same height as JJ (or one inch taller) but never had a wrestling background at all.

    Because theres a fence, hands closed together, brute force and the talent of Jones on a mma fight.

    When you talk about wrestling against the fence, I think the height would give you some advantages in leverage
