Yawn not this again.

No. Just that good.

He cuts from 220. His high reach is compensated by skinny legs and lower body which would be vulnerable to takedowns by thicker wrestlers with a fast shot or powerful leg kicks by a guy who could stop his takedowns.

Other fighters like Kendall Grove, Tamdan McRory, Ben Saunders etc. have had proportionally much higher reach advantages in their respective divisions but got destroyed. Know why? They were not as SKILLED as Bones.

It's jones' skill that keeps him from being taken down or chopped down despite his inherent weakness of skinny legs that allows him to make weight with the kind of reach he has.
