    Seriously, Jones without his picograms is just a very allround fighter, but against a striking specialist like Adesanya he stands no chance. Only way he could win that fight if is he could take Adesanya down, but as we saw tonight and against Santos his TD's are not elite. And Adesanya has very good TDD.

    Yeah I'd pick Israel to beat him at this point. Better striker than Reyes with the cardio to match. Longer reach too.
    Jon is not as good of a boxer as Kelvin is and he has nowhere near the power lol.

    This fight now makes much more sense. Israel would not fade after the 3rd.

    If he can stop the TD, he would absolutely pick Jon apart.

    I’m not a fan of people moving between weight classes and holding up divisions, but I’d be down for this fight. Or Stipe.

    Even Khabib would beat clean Jones at this point.

    Yes of course Izzy would beat Jon Jones. There's no question about that at this point.

    But for right now, Reyes is the light heavyweight champion. It doesn't matter if he has the belt or not. He beat Jones fair and square. Idiot judges make no difference.

    He is a bigger stronger kickboxer with more power and a granite chin and 5 round pressure cardio..

    Yeah, have to say my stance has changed. If Israel could keep the fight standing, which I think he could, he’d pick Jones apart on the feet. And make it look easy.
