Jose Aldo would probably destroy Jones in any sport not named wrestling, football or MMA purely on size disparity.
It speaks to how poor of an explosive athlete Jones is that he is 6'4 with a freakish wingspan and according to him he was awful at basketball and could barely dunk.
Flexibility, leverage and balance work in his favor as well as supreme side and length advantage, but the dude is easily one of the most overrated athletes in the sport in terms of the misconception that people actually believe he could've went pro in "any other sport".
Also Megumi Fuji would've gotten destroyed. Just because Royce won it doesn't mean there wasn't capable fighters in those first few tournaments.
Kimo, Shamrock, Goodridge, all would've destroyed Fuji.
