How athletic is Jon Jones compared to elite athletes in other sports?

Usain Bolt, LeBron James etc.

Considering he's the dominant champ of one of the most competitive weight classes...

Pretty good, methinks

Jones, Andy, Machida, Jacare, E. Silva, Bendo, Aldo, McGOAT, McCall, Joe B Wan

MSN- Barca treble, with a trophy winning goal for each

Here we go again.

Let me summarize the ensuing discussion.

NFL dudes are better athletes.
Brock was a super athlete who couldnt cut it in nfl.
Jones isnt as athletic as his brother.
No money = bad athletes in mma.
Black athletic/explosive jokes.

Athleticism isn't really something that can be measured. You can measure a guy's speed or vertical but athletics aren't just about speed and strength, they are about mixing those attributes with specific skills.

Jones has stated that he was not a great team sport athlete. But what does that really prove? Perhaps it was just the team mentality that bothered him or he was just much more interested in wrestling and had no passion for football like his brothers.

But LeBron James is just a ridiculous physical specimen.

He, apart from dumb racist shertard bullshit, isn't incredibly athletic (or explosive). He isn't a guillard or randleman type that wins due to physicality alone.
