Cormier's cardio and physical strength will keep him in the fight. Power as in punching power though? Jones has faced pretty damn good fighters in Vitor and Glover in that regard. I just don't see how Jones lets him get in close enough for the wrestling to matter.

This reminds me of when Frankie Edgar had his way with BJ Penn in their 2nd fight.

Holy shit. One of the biggest title fight upsets ever. Not quite Serra-GSP but it's up there with Edgar-Penn 1 and I guess Weidman-Silva (although I think most people thought Weidman had a decent shot). Can't think of any more.

Wieman was only a 2 to 1 underdog though

T.J was a 6 to 1.

Only bet 3 on tj won 19

power as in all-around physical power and toughness. i don't think jones has ever seen the like in his division.

i've read interviewers of his training partners, and they talk as if his body is made of cement or something. jones is a huge LHW, but DC can toss even larger men around the cage.

jones can do a little damage at distance against cormier, but just as likely break his own shins or hands. meanwhile, once cormier gets his hands on him, it will be even more decisive.

i think the thing that will keep jones in the fight are his dirty tactics, hellbows, and amazing talent / improvisation. it will be like watching two grandmasters of different styles trying to tip the balance.

#TJ looked insane, the last time I saw him fighting was him getting KO'ed by Dodson, man has he improved can't beleive that's the same guy.

#That guy Tony Ferguson KO'ed should never be able to compete in the UFC again that was the most embarrasing display of "technique" I have ever seen.

#Not really shocked by DC dominating Dan, I mean Dan was getting taken down by Shogun in there fights. DC is a monster but, shame he got into MMA so late hopefully he fights Gus or Jones next.

#Lawlor looked mighty good again love to see fighters improve and he really has.

i agree with many on there... jones' eye pokes are just the lamest shit ever.

how about a fast straight / jab (depending on stance) or a fast open palm strike to those outstretched fingers, based on their angle? use the counterthreat of jammed fingers to start combinations, gus...

If it works for him, it works for him. He's not trying to poke the guy, though. lol
