    Look at his record, his only impressive wins are DC, and Gus... which saved his career imo because everyone else he beat, was either past their prime (Glover, Shogun), a true MW (too many to name), or a controversial barely win (Reyes, Santos, Smith, OSP)

    This guy is fucking overrated guys, GSP, and Anderson had muuuuuuch better wins... even Khabib is getting there.

    Edit: This post definitely pissed people off lol, I'm just saying GSP, and Anderson's resumes are more impressive... of course Jones is incredible and easily a top 3 GOAT

    Tito Ortiz is another example of a guy who did well almost exclusively against true MW's, Chuck has pointed this out numerous times

    Dude seriously. You're going to be this disrespectful to all of his accomplishments? He's not everybody's favorite champion I get it but for real man, your post is super silly. We can find the same exact patterns on every champion that has ever competed in the UFC.

    I get yellow carded for making an awesome women's card (albeit used some borderline terms here and there) but I have to see 10 threads like this per day.

    This shit is much more offensive

    How was a Glover who was only in the UFC for two years and 5-0 past his prime <31>

    Even watching the fight he was still fast and explosive, well as explosive as he could’ve been after Jones ripped his shoulder off. Definitely fell off after tho

    Man this shit is crazy. Even i scored it for Reyes but c mon man. Everybody weighed in 205 lbs and most of guys dropped down to middleweight later barring sonnen and belfort. Machida Rashad and Rampage were all former 205 champs so dont disrespect the guy like that

    I was expecting this thread with 100% certainty if Jones moved to HW and got beat there. Well you delivered it a bit earlier...Don`t be sad bro!

    Shut the fuck up.
    I don’t even like Jones but to discredit everything he’s accomplished and his wins is just making you look like a bitter bitch with a shitty life.

    Stop projecting, pussy.

    Shogun was a champion, Machida was very recently a champion, Rampage was recently a champion, Evans was recently a champion, Belfort was a TRT monster destroying ppl at MW and was a former LHW, DC is a top 10 fighter all-time easily 1-2 wins, Gus twice, finished Bader early on, Glover, dismantled everyone and beat everyone in his entire career definitively besides Reyes where it was a draw arguably or went his way arguably.

    Silva beat guys like Thales Leities, Travis Lutter, and Patrick Cote'. And it's not like Sonnen + Okami + Maia at the time were some killers or even that good. Franklin was an old generation, old era fighter too, who he beat twice for the title and one of his most notable wins.

    It doesnt matter. They all weighed 205 on the scale. They might have been middleweights but they signed up for light heavy. Quit crying over another mans accomplishments. He's a great fighter. The end.

    Look again. Shogun was 29 (all Pride guys seem to be over the hill when they leave Pride....PEDs?), Rampage, Bader was 27 (Bader is double champ now at 36 years old),Rashad, TRT Belfort, Machida. He beat everyone and they weren't over the hill. He was just too good for the fighters of that time period. The Ramapage fight is worth watching again. Rampage's boxing style was nullified with the kicks. Rampage couldn't lay a glove on Jones.

    You do know that Shogun has a KO win over Overeem right? He also has KO wins over Liddell, Arona, Randleman, Lil Nog, Rampage.

    He's a Top 3 LHW Ever, and you are saying he's not a LHW lol

    How many of these MWs he beat had more success at LHW? That's right. All of them. None of them, except Vitor, sniffed a title shot at MW. Santos and Smith fucking sucked at MW and steamrolled everyone at LHW except Jon. Machida was the LHW champion and lost to everyone legit, except Mousasi, who later beat him, at MW. Rashad tried going down to MW at the end of his career, and it ended badly. Fighters move up and down, and everyone Jon beat at LHW belonged at LHW. If Usman beats Masvidal, nobody's going to be saying that he beat a LW.
