Kevin Lee is 5'9" with a 77" reach. Jon Jones is 6'4" with an 84" reach. If you do the math, you get that Kevin Lee would have an 85" reach if he was 6'4".

Could Kevin Lee potentially drop a ton of weight and be the Jon Jones of 145 or something?

Frame wise, he definitely could; there are guys with bigger frames fighting at 145 right now.

Kevin Lee at 145

He would also be pulsing.

FKL has a huge frame for 155, also struggles to make 155. Would be a specimen if 165 class existed, honestly without cannibalizing muscle mass he’s not ever making 145...

Bruh just because the difference between their height and reach is the same, doesn’t mean anything.
To get the data your looking for take the average reach of the top ten fighters in each weight class, and compare a % advantage for lee, and jones over their competitors

Why would he need to drop a ton of weight? 5'9" is a perfectly fine height for 155, and 77" reach is already a great advantage in that division. You don't have to be taller than your opponent to be able to leverage a reach advantage.

I'm confused, which one?

Sorry if you're slow, but Kevin Lee kills himself to get to 155 and fought 170 because of that. I'm sorry are you mentally disabled?

Weight is just calories in calories out. He'd weigh 160-165 at 145 lbs. 5'9" 165 lbs is hardly starving. He'd actually be just 4 lbs from being heavy enough to be overweight.

Maybe he has calculated it using the percentages? Idk though.

Magny has btw. the same reach as Adesanya and the same leg reach as Jones - as a welterweight - crazy, isn't it?

Sean Woodson has that at 145.

It’s crazy, but also proof you need the skill to use it

Absolutely. I think a huge part of Jon's dominance in the stand-up comes from his wrestling-threat though, so that's something one should really consider.

Imagine if Khabib would have the reach of Lee or Ferguson.. would be insane...

Yup, he’s made himself very effective for 5 rounds and won’t budge on his range. He’s not gonna use his wrestling and clinch just because it good if it means taking damage going in on you. The way he sees it, he will sit at his range and if you get too close he turns it on

FKL has bad hands. 1. Because he is a wrestler 2. Because of his long arms
JJ has average hands 1. Because he is a wrestler 2. Because of his long arms

Agreed. Would fkl be on steroids.

I think potentially the effects of them drugs should wear off completely within 24 hours.

If Kevin Lee had wheels he'd be a fucking bicycle
