    Last night we saw what it looks like when an A level athlete fights a talent who is not necessarily A level.

    Jones is obviously the GOAT, but he's the GOAT due to tremendous fight IQ, talent and skill, not natural athleticism.

    Imagine a fighter with Reyes athleticism, and Jones' skill and talent...

    Imagine athletic Nate Diaz with quick footwork and explosive double legs.

    Playing football at Stony Brook does not equal an A level athlete. Sorry TS

    Have you met Jones brothers?

    Jones struggles with similar length people with good hands because his reach leaves him slow to return to a defensive state. He also has the same reach and dip style he's had for years that leaves him susceptible to the uppercut. Reyes was made to give Jones troubles.

    I put him in the Weidman/Garbrandt category, Hopefully he doesn't prak and decline very quickly
