    No and he doesn’t even have a punchers chance

    Yeah he’s a finishing machine but don’t let the old man Rashad and old man shogun Knockouts fool you he doesn’t have hectic one punch KO power

    Well in his humanity yes. Way better there.

    But as a fighter, no. More power yes, but "better"? No....

    Roid boy will probably win but I wouldn't say Smith has NO chance.

    It's MMA. Anything can happen.

    Jesus Christ this is prize fighting, who gives a shit if they are great human beings? My role models are not people who step into a cage to try and knock each other out. With that being said, BLESS GOAT JONES!

    Smith will have to go wild and make it a sloppy fight in order to catch Jones. He doesn't have the technique to consistently land on Jones. He needs to create confusion and land some bombs.

    If the striking becomes too much to handle, Jones will go for the takedown and probably win by TKO.

    Reach is only a factor if he lets Jones stay on the outside and control distance. Forward pressure will be his friend, but be wary of the elbows coming in.

    Joe louis also had 76 inches reach at 6'2 and beat the shit out of guys with 85 inches reach like primo carnera, max baer 81 ", buddy baer, abe simon etc.

    He has a puncher's chance, as they say. Can't really see an advantage anywhere for Smith, but, he still has a puncher's chance.

    Yeah. And the drug test posts too.

    They were the first things that popped in my head actually when I saw the title but then saw you guys already said it lol

    I get why Jones rubs people the wrong way, even the "all glory to God" stuff is off-putting to me all things considered. But just objectively it's hard to see how Jones loses. I expect the same game plan he used on Gus

    No. He might have heart but Jones has talent. He will destroy Smith. Don’t buy the PPV

    Damn... That was a whole lot of work put into making an obvious point. Even on sherdog, there's not a single person who thinks he has more than a punchers chance. He's gonna be murdered.

    Being serious I don't see Smith better than Jones anywhere. Complete mismatch. Jones has a crazy chin, DC landed huge shots and Jones took it. Kicks go to Jones, Elbows go to Jones, Wrestling and clinch go to Jones, Cardio goes to Jones, Boxing Jones, Takedowns and defence Jones, Reach and distance/control again Jones. Volkan got his back, imagine if Jones does.

    Smith's best chance is if Jones takes him lightly like he did in the first Gus fight and Smith just says "fuck it" and goes after him from the get go.

    Yep. Everyone tries to figure Jones out and the longer the fight goes the worse it becomes. Might as well do a Vitor and go for a foul straight away, poke in the eyes, rush and dont let him get comfortable.

    Yeah but Joe Louis was the greatest HW of his era... Anthony Smith on the other hand...

    Love the guy but he's has nothing on Jones. He will have to go for broke in a couple minutes span and hope sweet baby Jesus is going to punish Jones once and for all.

    He would get destroyed in the rematch though
