A big guy with legit skills, should be awesome. I expect Jones to rise to the challenge though. Phone Post

Most likely will cause he's so talented and and knows how to use his reach better than AG ... Phone Post 3.0

As much as I'm hoping for Gus to pull of a grinding TKO, I expect Jones to submit him.

Why do people think the reach adv isn't still huge? He's the same height as Jones or maybe an inch taller but Jones is still going to have an 8in reach advantage

Wasn't there a discussion about this before and his "reach advantage" is actually his wingspan that the UFC measures due to freakishly long fingers. His actual punching reach advantage was very minimal IIRC. Phone Post 3.0

Gustafsson has said that his arms don't seem that much shorter than Jones' when they've compared them in person and that his wingspan measurement is about as accurate as Shane Carwin's original listed height, but the MMA smarks on the internet seem to know better.

This picture was posted in the last thread on this topic:

 

Gustafsson's reach is supposedly only two inches long than Fedor's.

 

 

 

You people really think that 76.5" figure is accurate?

I'll pull for Gustafsson, but I doubt it will be close at all. I see an easy win for Jones within 2-3 rounds.

After that press conference I'm convinced the majority of MMA fans are morons. They know Jon is a nice guy and they've seen how great he is in the cage...yet they still boo him.

At least Jones has enough about himself to look his opponent in the eyes now.
