So in some ways, Jones has more to lose as he is expected to win. I would be willing to bet that if this fight happens Jones is the favorite.
I understand but do you think... for example
If Overeem becomes Champion then the only people that should fight him are those that weigh 260+lbs? Cause it wouldn't be fair for him to fight Junior who is only 238lbs thats a 22lb diference!! Which is the difference between middleweight an Light-heavyweight....
Anderson is 6' 2"
Jones is 6' 4"
He fought Hendo who is
which equals to a 6.6" difference in reach and a 3" height advantage.
Hendo is fighting Jones next who has an almost 5" height advantage and a 13.5" reach advantage!!
