    It's a confluence of skill, size, coaching and understanding of range and ability. Jones is a smart fighter and he's surrounded by the right people who help him utilize those skills to the best of his ability.

    Jon Jones is good for numerous reasons: that is simply just the emotional advantage he has over guys. His physical gifts and work ethic and is on another level as well.

    I've always respected that about him.

    The way he so casually flying knees Shogun in the opening seconds of their fight proves that statement

    Jones isn't given nearly enough credit for his embodiment of Jeet Kun Do philosophy. Bruce Lee would definitely be proud.

    Being fearless is what kept Guillard from being champion

    He's fearless, he's got range, he's strong, he works hard, he's smart, he believes in himself, he has great coaching...someone can't get as amazing as Jones on the strength of one attribute. He has the physicality, he has the mentality, and he has the right environment. That is why he is the goat.

    Recently, I watched Rashad comment to a panel about why Lyoto Machida was so problematic to compete against.... it was a great insight....

    On JJ, Jones has all the qualities recounted by posters above.... the one that will make him hard to unseat is his mental confidence.... he's mature, he's a thinker, not a brawler like so many {Tito Ortiz--perfect example of a brawler}.

    Reckless seems to fit Melvin a little better. I've seen guys scared as fuck fight like killers but they're driven by emotion and get reckless. Jones is not.

    Well there is a line between fearless and reckless and Guillard is often guilty of being the latter

    He appears to be mentally tough which really does make it likely that he'll be great for a long time. His skills and athleticism go without saying.

    Typo? I'm sure you meant he fights like he's had his ass kicked too many times.
