Default Re: Does Jon Jones have the best GnP in MMA history?

You on the other hand seem quite enamoured by Jones victory over a clearly shot and pass prime Shogun. Why on Earth you're then comparing that with Tito head to head i haven't got a clue.
The fact Jones was unable to stop Shogun speaks more about Jones GnP head to head with guys like Fedor et al, as opposed to Shoguns toughness.

Bottom line is Tito was infamous and well renowned in the MMA world at that time for his GnP. In his super fight with Ken the first time that same GnP stopped Ken in one of the most brutal fights and losses Ken had ever been on the end of. Your memorys too short. Go and watch Tito's early fights and watch what he did to guys in his guard. Likewise do the same with Fedor, Coleman Kerr and Vovchancyn.
You're fixating way too much on reputations, and what people may or may not have thought about someones' style. Jones has a multi-faceted style, so his GnP does not garner the same attention as someone as one-dimensional as Tito, but why does that mean Tito's is better? Tito may have relied on his more, but that's because he was not as varied or as well-rounded as Jones, it doesn't in any way mean that Tito's was better.

Shamrock? Jones would put him in a bodybag with a flick of his wrist on the ground. This is silly.
