Four Reasons Jon Jones Will Lose The Belt At UFC 182

Captura-de-pantalla-2011-09-11 ...

3.) Competition:

Before you cite all of Jones’ big wins over some of the best light heavyweights the UFC has ever seen, it deserves to be said that his accomplishments are already legendary and that he’s been dominant over some truly great former champions.

Yet his main advantage over all of those fighters was his massive reach advantage; something that simply won’t be as much of an edge as it was over fighters like Rashad Evans, Lyoto Machida, and Vitor Belfort.

Cormier has fought some of the most dangerous heavyweights on the planet. With wins over Barnett, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva, and Roy Nelson, Jones’ size will have already been something that Cormier has faced and overcome.

Those fighters don’t have anything near the dynamic striking skills of Jones, but they are much bigger and more powerful, and Cormier ran through them with definitive ease.

He may not be able to do the same thing to Jones, but at the very least, his experience in beating some of the world’s best heavyweights will assist him greatly in his quest for light heavyweight gold.

  1. You make this a very intriguing idea that jbj may loose. I will be neutral dc has thd best wrestling,control,and power in the lhw division for sure, i see dc beating evans, rampage, glover, and vitor, becsuse he is so damn powerful. Im not saying that dc has knockout power. Im saying dc has allot of strength. Dc has the ability to negate jbj reach indefinitely, get inside, and dump jbj on his head. Jbj has imo the best MMA transitional game today, nonody is able to create true modern MMA tactical art likd jbj does. I don’t believe jbj reach will be a factor in his fight against dc, but it can be jbj uses super fast, hard, and snappy high kicks, front kicks. Jones has the chance to show his improving hand techniques as it wouldnt serve him well to kick with dc this will for sure be the most exciting lhw fight of the last couple years.

  2. I haven’t seen Jon go at a competitor like ever. Don’t count him out because. His height and reach advantage is an enormous advantage and makes up for everything mentioned here.

  3. No way can this “authority” on the sport…as he bills himself, can show face here.
    Or he must be just waiting things out. I’m going to be enjoying seeing all these JBJ haters choke on their words.
    FTR..Jon proved himself to be a real douche at the press conference. I know longer like his personality but fighting has nothing to do with that.

  4. You might of been watching the wrong fight. Jones won by a unanimous decision which means he ” BEAT ” Cormier. He took down Cormier who had never been taken off of his feat during a fight. Sorry, your guy lost, but wait, no i am not sorry. Cormier thought he was the best thing going, but Jones proved him very wrong . LOL !
