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.
