    That’s completely a figment of children’s imagination! Here are the facts though from someone who knows about fighting a little:
    Jones’ biggest assists are all based of off his long reach and leg reach also. He spams oblique kicks and also spams hands reach to keep his opponents worried about injuring either their eyes or knees! These are his main weapons and the rest are average like his striking and spinning elbows! That’s also why he didn’t do great against Gus who also uses eye pokes and reach to gain advantage, though Gus has better hands and Jones has better kicks! The X factor here is the juice! I guarantee you that if Jones fights clean, he will tire out by round 3 and get finished by 4! Everything else about IQ is an illusion because there is no way around eye gouging , especially with that extremely long reach! Debate please!

    He's simply the best to ever do it.

    I do.

    I credit GSP for coming up with the best game plans and sticking to it.

    But in ring IQ and adaptability goes to Jones.

    You don't know shit about fighting. Complaining about him "spamming" a legal move is like complaining that Ali hides behind his jab. He's able to pull it off against everyone due to his timing and they aren't skilled enough to stop it. Jones is gonna outwork Gus again and you'll be here making a thread complaining about it.

    Fuck off

    Jones has probably the best fight IQ of all time.

    You described the actions he employees successfully and attributed them entirely to his physical attributes. The manner in which he chooses to use his attributes, such as reach, directly reflects his fight IQ. Conversely, a fighter like Stephen Struve uses his own attributes, such as reach, relatively less well and consequently often receives excessive damage.

    I agree and anyone who can't see this can't understand the ABC of MMA

    TS, your thread IQ is some of the lowest I've ever seen.

    Are they saying this to set up the "steroids don't make you a smarter fighter" pivot?

    Jon Jones time will come when he makes a mistake too and somebody unlikely will be there to capitalize on it too.

    lots of great fighters lost or "almost" lost to mediocre fighters.

    Yeah but he hasn't fought anyone as bad as Fujita in ages

    That's why he's better than Fedor, because he hasn't had a single moment like that despite facing tons of better fighters than Fujita

    You're right, he's incredibly dumb for using strikes that let him use his reach advantage to its fullest capacity.

    OSP is probably shittier than Fujita. Fujita would've easily wrestlefucked OSP.

    Best Lawyer for sure . . .

    Jon's Lawyer, "hey jon why don't you cry some crocodile tears for the cameras"

    Jon's lawyer, "it was tainted supplements . . . again"

    Yeah and Jon easily beat OSP and wasn't in trouble once.

    That's the difference

    Jon Jones steroids or not is the greatest fighter we have ever witnessed. He's a LHW and how many times have we thought its unfair because of his physical strengths? He makes great fighters look ordinary. And in the cases of Chael Sonnen and Ryan Bader, he makes mediocre fighters look less than that. He's a special talent. Period.

    How many times was Jones even in danger? Vitor's armbar attempt and a broken toe are the only moments I can remember, and he still found a way to win quickly.

    yeah, so he beat a guy shittier than Fujita and that proves he wouldn't lose or get clipped by Fujita?

    that doesn't make any logical sense.
