Unlike the majority of MMA fans, Bas isn't a hero worshipping, deluded nuthugger. I don't even like Jones much as a person, if what I've heard about him is true (ratting on weed smokers etc), but I knew he would beat Shogun the way he did. Shogun, Wanderlei, even Anderson, all those former Chute Boxe guys have never had good takedown defense. Jones showed from day one that his takedowns are on a different level to most fighters, and his ground and pound is vicious. Also I couldn't believe how people were overlooking the sheer size, reach and physical advantage he had over Shogun.
