Jon Jones says he can match Vitor Belforts handspeed

I really doubt this. If he tries to box with Vitor I think he really is risking a KO. Jones seems to have a good chin, but Vitor has huge power and is faster than Jones imo.

Naaa... Jones simply said "I believe I'm really fast as well."

Nothing wrong with that.

No he said: "Yeah his hand speed is a gift that he has, but you know, I believe I'm really fast too Bas. A lot of people kind of discredit me for a lot of things... I honestly think I match him in speed."

I'm not saying there's anything wrong with him saying it and he's entitled to his opinion, but I'm just saying he's wrong.

Jones might be faster than Vitor but not when it comes to handspeed alone.

Yeah, exactly. He might be able to move around faster or run faster, but he's talking about handspeed here. I think he'd be crazy to stand and try to test his handspeed against Vitor's.

He doesn't have Vitor's hand speed. That said, Jones still wins via TKO.

Jones will probably still win but it will make for a better fight imo.

I think jones can stand and trade with Belfort. Belfort hasn't looked that good in years, and certainly not that fast.

There's a big difference between saying "I believe I'm really fast too" and saying "I can match Vitors hand speed" ... which the article uses as its title.

Yeah, that's not true. Hand speed isn't just a function of how hard/fast you can throw a punch; it also takes into consideration how fast you can bring your hands back to reset and jon doesn't really have the second that going for him (and I'm certain his 84 inch doesn't do him any favors with that).
