I have some issues with Jones as well. But there's wrestling and then there's mma wrestling. No one thinks Jones could get on a mat and pin or outpoint Cormier. But in the ring, I think he's too elusive and has too many tools for a guy like Cormier.
Jones himself seem to think he would stand a chance. “Cormier’s probably a little bit better than me (at wrestling), but it’s not a wrestling match at all. When you talk about knees and submissions and punching and kicking him in the face, and upkicks, it’s just not a wrestling match,” Jones said.
On a wrestling mat Jon Jones isn't even close to DC thats my point. He thinks he could hang with DC if i inturpret the quote correctly. Had he said DC is a better wrestler but this isn't wrestling. I would be fine with that. But he is putting himself in a class close to DC and hes not even close.
