    Does he have any chance in hell against Travis, or is he going to get obliterated?

    Are you confused or did you mean height?

    travis brown is 6'7". 250
    jones is 6'4" 205

    seems like you are just very confused either way.

    He fights people his size,if he was losing it would be why cant he fight tall etc.

    People just using anything to hate on him,if he was 5 foot 3 and had a 65 inch reach people would still find things to complain about.

    And he would tool browne

    Comical. The guy was under 220 eight weeks out from his last fight. Someone just posted an interview a couple of days ago where Hackleman said that Glover was a massive LHW and laughed at the notion that he could make 185.

    I hate to break this to you, but Jones is fighting guys his size especially when you consider that if he holds onto the belt, he'll be facing the likes of Gus, Cormier and probably Rumble or Davis in the future. All of whom are massive LHWs.

    Come on man, jones doesnt fight at 205 on fight night, that said he doesnt fight at 250 either.
    I think jones would do pretty good against heavyweights his own size but really, who knows??

    You mean "if Jones went up to a weightclass where he would be undersized..."

    See, the fact that he makes 205 makes him a light heavy weight.

    Can you really picture a Jon Jones who cuts to 265?

    jones is 227ish on fight night. and that is leaned out trying to make 205.

    travis is 245 with flab.

    they're more similarly sized than jones is to 99% of the lhw division.

    Jones cuts weight from 218 bro. A lot lighter than most lhws. Not much water weight when he is in shape

    i guess you think george roop should fight at 185 since he is the same height as weidman. Jones is called bones for a reason. Long and lanky, he isn't even that big of a lhw and lanky people can't just put on 40 pounds of mass all of a sudden

    First of all, you're delusional.

    Secondly, That's not his fault. He makes 205, end of story, really.

    Yes because Shogun, Page, Evans, Glover were all his size okkkkkk. He had only fought Gus who was close to his size, and almost lost. Browne would KO Jones early, if not Jones takes a UD.

    Funny, you take his word about what he weighed in cage for a couple fights a few years ago but completely ignore his word about him weighing ten pounds less that at the start of the camp for his most recent fight.

    Jones isn't lean at all when he's near 230. All of pictures of him around that weight show him lacking definition.

    Rampage and Glover are small LHWs? Lemme guess, you're one of those clowns who believes in height and reach classes.
