Gustafsson taking that belt. Most naturally gifted mixed martial artist ever

2nd round knockout. I'm fairly confident in my prediction, Jones hasn't faced a guy with the abilities this guy has. His takedown defense and striking will be WAY too much for Jones to handle. Gusta has GOAT potential - don't sleep on this guy folks

Gust might actually be a better striker than jones but he is nowhere near the grappler jones is and he's a hell of a lot less athletic. Jones is winning this fight by a lot. Everyone is pointing out that jones is finally facing someone his size and that that will cause him problems but thats true for gust too and I think it will be a bigger issue for him because a) jones still has a significant(7.5 inches) reach advantage and b) jones is a much better grappler.

If Gus makes it out of rd 2 he will be lucky.

The only way I see Jones losing is if a LHW version of someone like Johnny Hendricks comes along. Aggressive shit brickhouse with better wrestling than Jones and throws bombs.

well, i'll give goldilocks this--

gusty apparently takes training ultra-serious, has that weidman-like confidence that he's going to win, and is a significantly more evolved fighter with this latest camp. and he was already an easy top-five fighter, so this should NOT be ignored.

basically, his trainers think they've figured out how to beat jones, and have tried to turn gus in to a human robot to accomplish that task.

then again-- take it with a grain of salt. the challengers ALL think they've figured out jon jones, and yet the motherf--king wrestling and lethal elbows tend to rearrange their thoughts every single time.

will gusty likely win? i doubt it. but will it make for a f--king awesome fight? i hope so!!

Issue is the fact Jones is best wrestler AND striker in his division. People underrate his striking a lot, but he has outstruck all of his opponents so far. He even won his match vs Machida by hurting him with a counter left, and there was another right hand that damaged Lyoto beforehand as well. Machida is known as an elite striker and actually was tagging Jones in the 1st round, but Jon is great at figuring out his opponents and the 2nd round was another story. He got Machida's timing down and nailed him perfectly, which led to the choke.

Compared to him Gus is a step below as a striker, especially defensively. Did we forget his fight vs Shogun where he was getting owned by overhand rights one after the other? And Shogun has T-rex arms. Knowing how well Jones prepares for and studies his opponents he will be picking Gus apart from range and once he decides to take him down and drop the hellbows it will be good night for Alex.

I agree for the most part. But I got Jones by Kimura second round.
