See I never buy into fighter hype because until a guy has faced a lot of different situations, he has question marks. It's like everyone riding Lesnar's nuts when I kept asking the same thing. What happens when he gets tagged? Everyone said it didn't matter. But it did. Turned out, he couldn't take a punch without turtling up like a pussy.
Jones is the flavor of the week. I'm not saying he couldn't end up being a great champ, but he's got a lot of things he still needs to show before people can start hailing him as so be all end all. The only guy he's beaten thus far, is Shogun. Nice start. Now he has a target on him and let's see how he responds.
But that's what makes him so good. He doesn't get hit and it would be damn tought to do so. I might be forgetting a time, but when was the last time GSP was actually in trouble in a fight and was tested? Seems like it's been awhile. Avoiding punishment is a big part of the game.
