    What if I told you Struve doesn't have the first clue how to effectively use his reach?

    What if: Jones finally goes to the can, and his first opponent is a 350lb shiv-wielding frisky Mexican called Enrique?

    He would not have a huge reach disadvantage, they both have an 84 inch reach and Struve doesn't really know how to fight long anyway. I saw the Miocic fight and if Struve could consistently fight like that he would be a title contender, but he often lets his opponent back him up and close the distance. Seriously this guy needs to switch camps or something, he has so much wasted potential...

    This, unfortunately, is true for the most part.

    Nobody in the UFC has a reach advantage on Jones.
