Part of the thing with Jon Jones' reach is that he fights at 205 lbs. when he could easily fight as a heavyweight. The guys at heavyweight are obviously bigger so his reach advantage if the heavyweight division would be less of a factor than it is at 205 lbs.

Not true at all....

Reach of top HW's"

JDS:  77"

Cain:  77"

Cormier:  71"

Mir:  79"

Werdum:  77"

Reach of LHW's Jones has faced:

Bonnar:  80"

Vera:  78"

Shogun:  76"

Bader:  74"

Obrien:  76.5"

Of course there are LHW's he's faced with shorter reaches, but there are also HW's with shorter reaches like Pat Barry.  As stated above, reach isn't the issue.  Bendo had zero issue with Nate's reach.  It's a matter of these fighters being good enough to deal with it.

 

 

You forgot one..

Lets hypothetically say two fighters are identical in every way except one has a four and a half inch reach over the other, you don't think that would be any kind of a advantage?

It definitely would, reach matters but only if a fighter knows how to use it, although I can't understand ppl calling it unfair. Phone Post

so he has skinny legs like jon jones? and i'm talking about the reach argument, not the skill argument. i take your point dude but i'm talking about the ridiculous argument of 'it's unfair he has longer arms'

Scared tp what? You really think these prize fighters are scared? They may make smart business decisions but to say they're scared is disrespectful and stupid. Never mind. Tp Phone Post

I absolutely do think its an advantage... Just not an unfair one.. Sorry dude, maybe you haven't seen the many threads from people here complaining that its unfair and that he should go to heavy weight etc etc.. Watching the Diaz Henderson fight just reminded me of what a redundant and retarded skid mark of a point it is. Phone Post

"I think you need to pay attention to the conversation. Feel free to read shooters post before posting again."


There are other guys at heavyweight who have a reach that is closer to Jon Jones. I know he's retired now, but Brock Lesnar's was like 80". I think that Shane Carwin's is something like that. There's Stephan Struve who is the only person who can match Jones' reach at 84.5".


Also, the guys at heavyweight are bigger and stronger than at light heavyweight, so this helps make up for the reach advantage from Jones.
