    Chicken legs!

    So if people are so confident that Wilder does not have the genetics to withstand low kicks, why didn't any of Jones opponents exploit that? Reyes tried a little bit but that's about it.

    Jones knows his legs are weak. Thats why he doesn't walk out in heavy costumes.

    Jones legs don't get tired though. B-level athletes > A-level athletes

    Jones' head also doesn't get punched by the Gypsy King.

    He was breathing through his mouth after 3 or 4 rounds against Cormier. I would love to see him go 12 rounds of boxing.

    Tell that to Conor.
    He's made it to 5 rounds in MMA but was like the walking dead before it got to the 10th vs Mayweather.
    They're just different, one isn't easier than the other they're just different.

    Fury's punches didn't hurt him at all. It was that final walk up the stairs that completely annihilated his legs

    They are both narcissists that believe they are gods and will never credit anyone else.

    not sure a guy known for gassing in MMA making it 10 full rounds against arguably the absolute GOAT with flawless cardio proves the point you tried to make..
    or the other guy can be the better grappler and get on top of you. you ever been gassed out and had to defend someone in full mount? disrupting your breathing, raining down punches, etc?
