Semmy Schilt had a reach and height advantage and it didn't help him much, and he is a guy that knows how to use it to his advantage. Fedor manhandled and threw Schilt around. Prime Fedor was just excellent at nullifying his opponents advantages back when he used to fight intelligently and had strong gameplans.

Fedor's stamina was second to none, Jones would most likely have his reach advantage negated by Fedor's strong skill set impeccable timing and intelligence, and Jones would tire long before Fedor ever would. To win Jones would need to get lucky and knock prime Fedor out, otherwise prime Fedor would most likely win by grinding out a UD, submitting him, KO'ing him, or GnP'ing him to a pulp.

Gustafsson Beat Jones, and Jones knows it, and deep down, so do you.

Jones has been fighting in MMA for 5 years only, it takes at least 5-10 years at the amateur level in boxing to go pro.

As Bas Ruten stated, your prime is usually around 30-34 when you have amassed experience and skill to match it. Your physical prime is different than your prime. Jones is past his physical prime but its hard to believe he is in his prime, not at 26 and 5 years of fighting.

His striking and experience will get much better than it is now coupled with his skillset and athleticism. Your prime is when a fighter reaches his zenith in terms of skill/talent and experience. I dont think Jones has reached that level yet.
you keep claming it like its true, any evidence of that, studies done, your research, name 5 fighters that started out young and got to a high lvl at a young age and were still at their peak from 30-34

So you're saying Phil Davis would get thrown around by a WW?

If he can do this, he can do anything; an old Hitchcock trick. He makes us scared of him.

Prime Fedor is much stronger and faster than Jon Jones. He will destroy his fucking thin body.

If Jones met prime Fedor, God's help won't be enough to rescue him.
