Reach is nice obviously but shorter the arms the more power you can put in your punches, especially on the inside.

Jon Jones is smart and uses his reach to throw long punches and then elbows when fighters get close, Jon Jones is scary creative and this would be a amazing fight

Sig credit to my Homie! limba!

There is literally no other fighter in the World who could manage Jones reach better than Lyoto.

The striking gap between the two is so huge guys, the reach of Jones can't and won't nullifie that advantage.

attacking a counter-striker has not been that effective in the UFC. Machida-Jones will be a great fight and i personally would love to see another "Seagal" KO of the night!

Proper preparation + a split second hesitation = total domination.

Machida would have to jab and move for the full 5 rounds to grind a decision. He'd be hard to take down even for Jones because he keeps running backwards.

Why would he have to jab and move the whole fight? He could outstrike Jones quite easily for all we know.

Jones hasn't shown striking that would overcome Machida. He hurt Shogun with the opening knee but the real damage was on the floor, and then he was easy pickings for Jones. I still think his striking is a bit wild and all over the place to be that effective every time he gets in the cage.

Machida would outstrike him IMO, but he wouldn't need to move back to do it. He could land kicks, knees and punches to do it.

Lol good joke. Machida in his last fight tried to take his opponents head-off from bell to bell.

machida would likely get taken down as soon as he threw a kick. jones via GandP in the third round is what im thinking. machidas tdd has only been seen vs randy and tito ortiz......rampage took him down, altough it was off the cage and lead to no damage.

jones has good striking and proved it agianst shogun with a very varied attack.



JUST SCRAP

Shogun outstruck Machida on 2 different occasions and JBJ seemed to swim quite well against him ...
