    Jones is afraid of Fedor's power and that makes him hesitant and scared to throw back. Fedor by landing more important shots in a five round fight. I see Jones scoring few oblique kicks, jabs and that is basically all. Fedor has more power than Santos and he is faster but I don't see him putting Jones away. I'm playing this fight in my head right now and only give Jones 10% chance of winning.

    10% is a stretch.

    Prime Fedor would give any man on Earth all they could handle. No doubt. No-one would be better than 50/50 against Prime Fedor. No-one.

    That is a good question. Fedor would beat both versions.

    Fedor gets knocked out by a gust of wind nowadays. His chin was never that good. One good elbow from Jones and he'd be on wobbly legs. Fedor would get hellbowed into oblivion.

    Jones has finished more powerful strikers than Santos; Jones' regression is as much a factor in that fight as Santos' ability.

    I think Fedor wins but this is a shit thread because he fights nothing like Santos.

    If you want to say prime Cro Cop beats Jones because of that fight, then fine.

    Fedor would beat Jones today, even years out of his prime. People just love to hate on Fedor. Casuals.

    depends. does prime jones mean roided to gills jones? will he eyepoke fedor in moment(s) of uncertainty? Why does Jones keep fighting middleweights? I personally don't think he is even that good. He has beaten a lot of names/brands way past prime, notorious for roids, and dirty fighter/ eyepokes, groin shots. Not to mention he is a hw that makes a huge cut to lhw. :And a reach advantage over everyone. I swear he will end up fighting stipe (who is remarkably overrated) and beating him, and will elevate his career in the eyes of the blind. Prime Andy vs 'prime' Jones....Andy all fucking day. That's not my opinion...that's a fact.

    Im surprised they haven't made that fight. Ufc loves to put Jones against out of prime big name fighters....lyoto, rampage, Rashad, vitor, etc. and if not that then small fighters, mw's.....you get my point.

    Fedor is old man. How can you judge his career on recent performances? Hes collecting checks, like most ufc guys these days. In his prime...goat. leave opinion or lack of information out of it. Truth is truth.

    DC beats Fedor, and Jones beat DC twice. Do the math. Except for a flash ko, against Jones that has never been visibly rocked, Fedor has literally no way of winning. Anyone who doesn't at least favor Jones isn't thinking straight. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    This is MMA. Adaption is the most important factor. Fact is Fedor was unable to adapt. There is something called career IQ which supersedes fight IQ. Fedor has little of that.

    The prime narrative is just a running joke like young Erick Silva. Just another excuse, but Fedor fans are the only ones who take that silly narrative seriously- the sad part. Real men simply admit defeat to the better man that night and move on, others have to conjure up any excuse like God's Will to hold onto their aura.

    Jon rapes Fedor.

    Prime Fedor would beat the fuck out of Jones. Enough punching power to keep Jones afraid and enough speed to make Jones pay for mistakes. Esp that wack ass spinning garbage shit that he does. Fedor also had the proper amount of skill and intensity in the clinch to avoid getting bullied and super explosive hips and scrambling to either get back up or reverse positions. Prime Fedor also had a good enough armlock from his back to punish someone who is lazy or doesnt respect it and we all saw what Vitor did to juiced up pre USADA Jones.

    Prime Fedor is way faster, way more dangerous and way more dynamic than Thiago Santos with a blown out knee and he arguably won rounds 1, 2 and 5 against Jones. What the fuck do you think a prime Fedor on two legs would have done???

    Anyone who thinks Pride Fedor is less skilled, less tough and less intense than MW journeymen like Thiago Santos and Anthony Smith is a UFC fanboy cuck who dont know shit about fighting.

    That is just dumb...Fedor is old as shit right now with years of wear and tear on him, of course his chin is gonna be shit nowadays. Give an example of how his chin was never good.

    the fact that you say jon 'rapes' fedor..simply means you have an emotional bias. remove yourself from said bias.
