If I remember correctly Fedor didn't drop him with a OHR.
He feinted ( tap to the glove with the right hand ) while instantly delivering a thundering left hook, followed by a clinching left uppercut and then a left hook both while holding Tim's head with his right hand, then a close quarter flurry that sent him to the ground ( but it was clear he was arleady in lala land after the first 3 punches )

If you are comparing Jones athleticism to fat and slow timmy, you are high on something

reaction time is important, reading body movement from fighter to predict their next move and counter with footwork and speed beat them to the punch, its advance mma techniques.

You're insulting Jones by comparing him with Tim

If you have a significant reach advantage, the other fighter needs to adapt while you're just doing what you've always been doing and hopefully become good at it.

The guy with shorter reach needs to be faster, have better timing, eat a few more punches while closing the distance-be more durable, work a bit more-better cardio.

It's easier to be a boxer when you have reach, you can do without being a hard puncher or take the abuse a swarmer does.

Randy Couture was literally Captain America in that fight.

He fought smart and fierce. Tim was no joke, he put to sleep a lot of people and wasn't as unskilled as people like to make him out.

A smaller fighter can absolutely beat Jones.

This has been mentioned in several of these threads but it's hardly ever acknowledged, and people keep using this fight as an example of why reach doesn't make much of a difference.

It will be a valid example the day Jones starts fighting with a bad back restricting his movement.

Don't be alarmed, Mark, it's just Tai Chi. Take a seat and I'll just power through. Should take 45 minutes, I'm done in ten. Stick that up your dojo.
