Jones will still have a significant reach advantage against Guss. But the technical striking and toughness and durability of Guss should worry Jones. Jones needs tighten up his standup if he's going to fight Guss otherwise he's going to be in for a shock.
Guss needs to tighten up his defense because Rua was landing some clean shots on Guss.

Yeah but Shogun usually comes in with a great game plan and believe it or not Guss had only a 1/2 inch reach advantage on Shogun. And Shogun is a much better striker than Jones.
Machida and Rua had success against Jones, but you got the sense that it was just a matter of time before Jones would catch them, which he did. So far, everyone has to rush in on Jones to hit him and that's when they're most vulnerable. Guss can strike at a distance and he's very active. I'd give Jones the strength advantage, but I think they match up well.

If Guss is sloppy and eats too many shots, it could be a short night. However, we haven't seen Jones take any punishment. If Guss can have some success early, it could really throw Jones off his game. It's kind of like Lesnar. He wasn't used to getting hit and when Cain swarmed him, he panicked and looked like an amateur.

I'm excited to see that matchup. I don't really see anyone else right now that can matchup with Jones. Machida is the only person I feel could beat him and he'd have to fight a perfect fight to do so.
no one's had an answer for that thrust leg kick from Jones...............
UFC pulled off a GREAT card on FOX this past weekend. All the fights were good. Sad to see BJ get dominated the way he did. I agree with most about MacDonald being a classless punk. I hope he does get the rematch against Condit or a fight against Hendricks so he gets his ass beat.

Shogun did the best he could against a taller fighter, but Gusstafson showed that he may still be a few fights away from beating someone like Jones. He's tall, but his reach won't be much of a factor. His best chances against Jones would be his kicks. Still a Shogun fan, doe!

HENDERSON!!!!! The guy is a beast. I don't think anyone has a shot against him at 155 unless Aldo moves up.

Major shoutout to three fighters on the undercard: Siver, Trujillo, and Cruickshank. Siver is dominant at the featherweight division showing a great overall game. Abel Trujillo out of the Blackzillian camp is gonna be an absolute force if he can handle the weight cut. Cruickshank looked impressive showing off all the different angles he throws his kicks. Excited for these fighters.

What his jujitsu was awesome he almost had Henderson multiple times... There is a reason the score was so close, its because that fight could have easily gone either way, a great fight between two different styles. He was beat but I wouldn't be sad to see a rematch.

the score were 50-45, 50-45, and 50-43, if you think he was close to submitting henderson, you havent watched enough ben henderson fights

5 rounds to 0 is pretty close though, TBPH IMHO FFIW

BJ shouldn't have fought in the first place I knew dumbass Rory would take him apart. BJ has no footwork or head movement and creeps around the octagon like a statue. And I don't know what is up with BJ and taking people to the ground it seems to be against his reilgion.

As for Henderson vs. Diaz fight, I've never seen anyone dominate a Diaz before like that, Henderson is the real deal.

Hendricks vs. Rory needs to happen or Nick Diaz vs. Rory McDonald is what I wanna see. Or why not stir s**t up, since GSP ducks Anderson so much why not put Rory vs. GSP.

From what Dana said, GSP wants Nick Diaz, so that fight looks like it's gonna happen. Kos is calling our Rory right now, Rory is calling out Condit, Condit is calling out Hendricks, and Hendricks is calling out GSP. It's a good problem to have in the division.

Yup, Welterweight division I think is the most exciting right now. And I gotta say I'm rooting for Hendricks to win it all.

Hahaha I never thought I'd see a fight where I'd be rooting for KOS. I hope it happens.
