Alistair Overeem is not 6'5.
Strikeforce has him listed at 6'4. Also Heath Herring was complaining that they made Alistair taller than him in the Pride video game and they stood together in front of the mirror and they were the same height.
Jones has much more length than Overeem too. He has shorter torso, longer arms, longer legs.
That said, I can't really tell how tall Jones is. In the weigh-in stand-off photos, he looked about 2 inches taller than Bader (listed at 6'2) but he was the same height as Brandon Vera (listed at 6'2), and the same as Bonner (listed at 6'4).
Either way, Jones is much, much better than Overeem was at his age, and much physically stronger. Overeem had zero wrestling when he was at 205 and basically capitulated with every take-down attempt.
