It's either him or Khabib imo.
Jon's up there, but he's also always eaten plenty of shots - including head kicks - and relied on his insane natural durability
It's one of the reasons peeps are thinking his time is near ... he's always relied on his chin and every chin cracks eventually
Dominic Cruz is probably #1 when it comes to guys operating at the highest levels (i.e., constantly fighting ranked opponents)
I don't know about hittable, but this is the only fight were you can see his face bruised up.
in terms of percentage of opponent's strikes missed, no:
RANK FIGHTER RECORD
1 Nasrat Haqparast
2 Gabriel Benitez
3 Dominick Cruz
3 John Makdessi
5 Enrique Barzola
6 Raphael Assuncao
7 Frankie Edgar
8 Jose Quinonez
9 Zubaira Tukhugov
10 Arnold Allen
in terms of total number of strikes absorbed per minute, no:
RANK FIGHTER RECORD
1 Islam Makhachev
2 Marcos Rogerio de Lima
3 Tatiana Suarez
4 Rani Yahya
5 Julianna Pena
6 Khabib Nurmagomedov
7 Davey Grant
8 Mirsad Bektic
9 Karl Roberson
10 Ray Borg
His style relies on his reach and height. If a decent fighter has the same height and can stop the takedowns he'd easily give him a tough fight.
Actually If Reyes can stop the takedowns he'll beat the shit out of john jones
Dominick Cruz is the least hittable with a notable career.
Islam gets hit less than 4 times per round
GOAT level already
Adriano Martins fight was a deep fake CGI creation btw
That last part is debatable, Jones might just pick at him with kicks and beat him up on the fence.
Stats arent always good.cruz looked very bad vs cody and tj was tagging him alot
Ok so this is a below 170 list or what lol
I think that Makdessi ate like 90% of shots Cerrone was throwing at him, so without that fight, his stats would be even better, lol.
Your thinking about this all wrong ..
The answer is Conor ..
Because he never fights .. Or has opponents that dont fight back.
Jon Jones is actually the most hittable person in the UFC...
Let me help you.
Jon Jones does an amazing job rolling with punches if you watch closely but he’s not the least hittable I’d say Dominic Cruz considering the level he fought at.
