    A tad bit different than 'who do you want to face Jones next?'

    Who do you think holds the bigger chance to beat him?

    I'd say Gus.

    I hope I'm wrong but I think Jones wins the rematch vs Gus, and beats Cormier.

    I think Gus might have a better chance of beating Cormier than Jones, but Cormier would have a better chance of beating Jones than Cormier.

    So to answer the survey- Cormier.

    Gustafsson might outstrike Jones, but he could also get out-wrestled.

    Cormier decides where every one of his fights go, and I don't think Jones would have much of an answer to Cormier's relentless wall n' stall & top game.

    Gus has already shown that he has the tools to make it close at least. Lots of fighters look lke they can beat Jones before they actually get in the cage with him, Gus was the only one that didn't wither.

    This will be a close Poll.

    Before Saturday I said Gus, but after what DC did to Hendo, as much as i love Gus I have to say DC now.

    Cormier is the best fighter not named Cain Velasquez
     
  10. Whoever he fights next is the bigger threat.

    His wingspan reach sucks ass but he's of comparable height and kickingspan to Jones

    Gus only because I've seen him against Jones. He matches up well.

    I think Gus will make his face look worse than DC will. But both have a good shot at beating him. DC a little more.

    As much as I think Gus could take the rematch with Jones, I'd feel far safer betting on Cormier. I think Cormier is going to wreck Jones. Not just because he beat Hendo, but because of how incredibly dominant he has been against everyone they put in front of him. I think he's going to give Jones a very rude awakening.

    I voted Cormier, but have honestly no idea. Cormier seems like a steep challenge, and Gustafsson definitely is.

    Cormier is easily the bigger threat.
