    This would be the perfect strategy IMO

    Rampage had some success and he isn't even that good of a leg kicker.this could be the kryptonite

    I bet cerrone does it in secret and gets the better of Jones in sparring

    Would love to see Bukaw vs Jones

    Maybe even some hipster leg kicks from McGregoat

    His jab is longer than your leg kick

    Because he'll punch you in the face and/or take you down while you're trying it.

    Fear of the takedown, maybe?

    Probably because chopping his legs requires staying at range, and staying at range means you lose. You could try it from the clinch but you'll just get manhandled.

    I agree, probably easier said than done with the reach, but defiantly a weak area.

    I thought his legs looked extra chickeny yesterday. Maybe its just that his upper body got bigger? After what happened to AS, I cringe every time Jon throws a kick now.

    Because Jon Jones is no slow fighter, and can catch a kick and use it to turn it into a leg trip....like Daniel Cormier found out last night. After that first trip takedown off a leg kick, you see how reluctant DC was to kick.

    if only someone had thought of this earlier. You really are a god among strategists. Does anyone have Javier Mendez's phone number? with your awesome gameplans there is no way Bones can win.
