Default if jones was.................

if jones was of a more average height, say 6.0 feet, do you think he would of still won his last few fights?
anyone else do you think would beat the 6.0 feet jones?

what ifs, what ifs. i know its easy to come up with this type of thing, but i want to see how good a fighter he would be without the height advantage, i think its probably his most important asset.

Well, in that case everything would be different. He wouldn't have his octopus arms and so he would have a completely different mentality and fighting style.

What kind of silly **** is this? If he were four inches shorter and his body remained proportionally the same, he'd probably be a Welterweight or a Lightweight. If he were four inches shorter with a shorter reach, larger lower legs and thicker trunk, he'd be a completely different person. Who knows what kind of fighter he'd be?


This complaining about Jones' physical dimensions is ridiculous. If you pay attention to the sport, you'll notice that the guys who are built like him (tall and lanky) are generally mediocre fighters. Did you not see Cole Miller lose a striking match to a guy in Nam Phan who was seven inches shorter last Saturday? What about Cyrille Diabate, Stefan Struve, Kendall Grove, Tamdan McCrory, Dan Hornbuckle, Corey Hill, Roli Delgado, Walel Watson etc.? I can go on and on. Those are guys who had extreme height and reach advantages relative to their opponents in their respective weight classes, and none of them have had anything near the success that Jones has. Diabate is slightly taller than Jones, and has a slightly shorter wingspan, why don't you look up how well he did against Shogun, who was one of Jones' recent opponents that you're referring to?

I'm not saying that Jones doesn't make good use of his physical advantages, but almost all top level fighters have some sort of innate physical advantage. My point is that if Jones is only dominating because of his body type, then it stands to reason that there should at least one other fighter with a similar physique going on a tear in MMA.
