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

At heavy he just becomes the same as everyone else except an undersized tweener. Putting the likes of Rampage Shogun et al away is very different to facing a guy like JDS, Cain, Carwin, Overeem, Cormier, Barnett etc.
I agree that he defintely wouldn't do particularly well at heavyweight but I just think that there is more to him than his height and reach.
