    We're talking about prime Fedor here.

    He had better boxing with KO punching power, Jones never had.
    Both are great wrestlers, but who's better in this aspect?
    Who has more dangerous BJJ skills?
    Fedor has the speed advantage imo.

    Fedor boxing and striking was weak. Hes a brawler, thats it. Jones would easily smash a prime Fedor, deal with it. Cormier is the better version of Fedor.

    Jon Jones is not that great technically. He has some physical advantages, especially his arms, that makes him able to do things that should not be possible. He has longer reach then Stefan Struve! His reach, and the way he eyepokes/stabs fingers at face, just stiffles the opponents offensive skills. I know this is silly, but If you gave him normal reach for his height, he would never come close to being champ.

    He is also extremely explosive, the question of how much of this came from juicing through his whole life, might be shown when we see him fight again.

    To be fair Jones mind was WEAK... That’s why he:

    -Felt the need to take “Supplements” to even REMAIN competitive

    -NEVER even bothered to test the waters at HW

    -Cries in public every time he Dindu Nuffin

    Lets get something straight:

    1- Jon Jones is a proven cheater

    2- Jon Jones has a massive reach advantage over everyone he faces

    3- Jon Jones is considerably younger and fresher than most of his opponents

    4- Jon Jones has no history of facing guys with significant physical advantages over him, that could truly test his skills

    5- Jones Jones has shown absolutely no interest in putting himself in a situation where all the main physical advantages aren't on his side.


    Fedor is more skilled than Jon Jones. By far. There's actually proper ART in what Fedor does. What Fedor does results from timing, technique and many years of training. You could learn a lot more about Martial Arts from Fedor than from Jon Jones. Fedor can actually teach you how to throw someone, even if you are not a physical specimen. Jon Jones couldn't teach how to do what he does unless you're fighting someone who looks like a midget next to you.

    Very close to complete fighters

    Jones probably had better technical striking... Fedor more power

    He is skilled, but yeah, his physical advantages help him. Even he knows this. He has trained with HWs before and knows he doesn't do well against them. That is clear in his interviews and is why he never moves up in weight class. And every time he has fought someone even remotely close to his size he looks much worse. It's similar to Rory. He is used to being the bigger guy and having reach. When he doesn't, he looks much worse. Except Rory isn't a PED using cheater.

    They are total opposites in the sense that Jones is fighting in a weight class that he is naturally too big for.

    Fedor is more impressive because he fights bigger fighters and beats them, and that's literally like fighting gravity. Fedors punches lose power when punching up, while Jones strikes gain power while coming down with the accompanying momentum of gravity.

    Jones is the bully

    Fedor beats bullies up. Literally upwards.

    I think they both aren't that good of strikers. They just get by because of their attributes. Jones because of his significant range/reach, fedor because of his explosiveness/power.

    Fedor was also more explosive and faster. But Jones is way better at using gameplans. They are both ridiculously strong for their size/build.
