    - Same body type
    - Crazy spinning elbows and kicks
    - Unorthodox movements
    - Poor boxing
    - Both junior college wrestlers on massive winning streaks
    - Good submissions

    Khabib vs Tony is also a similar matchup to Prime Cain vs Jones

    Even Tony's 2nd personality is nicer than Jones' primary one.

    Hes missing the throws and trips. Jones has exceptional throws and trips from the clinch.

    Not really. Tony's fights look like action movies, he doesn't have that large of a size advantage at his weight class + Jones doesn't eat shots like a madman. Elbows and a level of groove are the only similarities, but Tony's much wilder and more intense.

    Tony is not even close to the level Jon Jones is. He got dropped more in the Pettis fight than Jones in his entire career. Sherdog is going to throw Tony in the bin after UFC 249. Shame he's one of the greatest fighters UFC has seen.

    Jones has never been rocked and it’s almost impossible to take him down or get inside him without eating elbows and knee stomps unlike Tony.

    no...........he doesnt..........................at all......................in the slightest

    dumbest fucking comparison I honestly truly think I have EVER seen


    post one gif of Jon being "rocked" and I'll post a picture of my asshole and take a permaban.

    you must have a different definition for the term "rocked" than 999/1000 people

    Tony takes many more risks and has the best pressure fighting I’ve seen and jon didn’t get hit as much and had a lot better offensive wrestling and tdd

    They are nothing alike you mug

    Jones has only been hit clean in the face a few times in his career. At one point, Tony was getting knocked down in every fight. Jones is WAY better at using his reach and fighting smart.

    1. I never said he's never been rocked
    2. Getting cut and getting rocked aren't the same
    3. I already said he did in the Gus and Lyoto fights, once in each IIRC. Compare that to Tony literally getting knocked to the canvas every other fight.

    You said "he's been rocked plenty of times" I asked for proof and you have provided none then started waffling about fanboys and making up quotes unrelated to my post.

    Many people tripping... One of the most stupid comparisons of all time. Comparing a nobody with DA GOAT... Outrageous. Not even close in almost all aspects of the game.

    Tony takes risks when he fights.
    Johhny only takes risks outside of the cage.... Lot's of them too
