    Never go full MMAth.

    Style makes fights unless your name is Khabib Nurmagomedov. Then you dominate all kind of murican wrestlers (without even being a wrestler, lol), irish strikers, etc.

    Ngannou said himself that he thinks Jones has an easier time at HW.

    DC said he thinks Jones beats Ngannou and he made that pick confidently. Doesnt believe the hype behind him.

    A lot of people are underestimating LHW, underestimating Jones and overestimating HW.

    Jones is moving to HW because he sees that as the easier division to conquer at the moment. And minds who truly know the game like Ngannou and DC obviously share similar sentiment.

    Theres a sense of nuance that's lost on fans here though, somewhat understandably so. Ultimately it's one of the things people will need to see to believe.

    Damn, 250 lbs Jones vs. Ngannou would be amazing, but I think Jones would get a title shot against Stipe first.

    Big Khabib fan, but i agree with your overall statement.
    Jones couldn't impose his wrestling on Reyes and Stipe is quite a bit bigger and stronger.
    Stipe also has a longer reach and a better chin than Reyes.

    EDIT#2
    Here's a side by side size comparison of not only Stipe and Jones, but now i also added Reyes:

    how did Cormier do as a hw? And who do you think has the better skill set and who do you think has the better frame for hw?
    And what age was Cormier a hw champ?

    Not necessarily.

    His brother Chandler is a great example of someone who is far from slow.

    If it were anyone else, I would agree.

    But, he has among the best possible people around to lead him into the weight as effectively as possible.

    Gotta also take into account that, LHW is a different level of speed and athleticism. Even if he does sacrifice a bit, he will still maintain that advantage. Especially with age on his side once again

    Dont bother. His opinions on many things are purely emotional and biased. Not based in logic, reason and research.

    No. He was around 220-225.

    Closer to 220 in the cage, according to his statements on JRE

    250 is a pretty significant leap. Especially for his frame, which is naturally suited to carrying such weight

    Everyone is on the juice

    There is only few greats

    If it were that easy to take PEDs and be one of the greatest ever, eeryone would do it.

    Bit of a double edged sword he is.

    People see him as a scumbag

    But humans are complex creatures with many conflicting elements and chaos within them.

    I see him as someone who is predominantly a good person, but he is also someone who epitomizes having an angel on his shoulder / devil on his back.

    I know i know.
    I suspect he's still a scumbag, but if not, that's a good thing and if he's still one, then i hope for him that he changes.
    My comment was mainly due to the fact that i find religious quotes nonsense in the context of fighting, but then again, it was on his lifting belt, so maybe i was too harsh there.

    He's gonna be the best grappler at HW, he'll toy with everyone on the floor. 250 pound Jones dropping elbows will get finishes.

    werdum would beat jones as easily as he beat gus. and werdum isnt even top 10 anymore.

    tbh id pick stipe, francis, rozenstruik, lewis, overeem, volkov and gane over jones. thats already 7(including champ) out of the top 10.
