    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)

    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

    That last part is debatable, Jones might just pick at him with kicks and beat him up on the fence.

    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 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.
