    He has a crazy wing span, and is one of the most creative strikers I've ever seen.
    He has an unorthodox style that is fun to watch. He'll clean up at lower levels.


    He is just asking for one down the pipeline though. A good Tim Sylvia straight cross will be his downfall.

    Well... Sylvia would be overkill. Seeing that he's a 6'8" HW

    The point is that Sylvia is a no talent oaf with one tool, right cross. Bones has some holes that need to be patched up.

    Oh my bad. I thought you meant you wanted him to fight Sylvia. Heh

    I haven't seen enough of Jones to say he's limited, but assuming that he is, it's a dangerous position to be in LWH. Practically every fighter in the division is dynamic.

    The guy just got picked up by Greg Jackson, the trainer whose camp includes GSP and Rashad Evans (he's like the Belichick of MMA trainers). If that's not an indicator of potential I don't know what is.

    He has an 84.5" wingspan, in the LHW division.

    That's insane, no one even comes close.

    With the speed, creativity, and accuracy he's already displayed, it is undisputed that he has a very bright future in MMA.

    .
    If he is training with Greg Jackson now, he'll get much better and plug up those holes. Jackson did wonders for Joe Stevenson. Completely different fighter.

    It seems like various forms of grappling is the key to cage fighting thus even with the more recent rules grappling heavy arts like Brazilian Jujitsu win.

    Would that be the same on the street or 1 against 2 or 5 against 5 in the field.(i.e grappler would seem to be very vulnerable with when grappling with a 2nd opponent still standing/kicking them while preoccupied etc...

    Is this the case?

    If so what is the preferred (superior or most appropriate for the situation) martial art style in fights of 1 against 2, and/or 5 against 5 skilled opponents in fighting?

    when facing multiple enemies your obviously no going to want to get on the ground, that would only make you vulnerable.

    and the weapon is only as good as the person using it, any type of standup would be very effective if used properly in a while facing multiple enemies, or even just one. Keep your distance and pick your shots, preferably striking after they make a move. Defence is really important. If you go in swinging chances are you are leaving yourself open

    I usually defeat most of my enemies with red kryptonite.
