The former UFC light heavyweight title challenger Anthony Smith is adamant that the UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, who also happens to be one of the greatest MMA fighters of all time is not invincible at all.
Jones’ MMA record has almost been blemish-free, his only defeat came early in his career against Matt Hamill due to disqualification for using illegal 12-6 elbows.
Smith was recently asked about Jones’ eternal rival and the former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier’s comments that Jones in undefeatable. Here’s what he had to say:
I think a heavyweight would have a much easier time, I like Daniel, I work with Daniel, I disagree with Daniel. Like. I hear him talk about Jon Jones like that all the time; I didn’t see that. Like, I didn’t feel like that when I was in there with Jon Jones. Obviously I had my own issues, … but I don’t feel like that. I didn’t feel like I was in there with a dude that was unbeatable, and when I hear ‘DC’ talk sometimes, I get the feeling as if he’s talking about someone who’s unbeatable.
Especially a man who was winning the second fight and just got clipped and put down, I think all judges had ‘DC’ up. He was winning every minute of every round up to the point he got kicked, so I always feel really uncomfortable when I hear ‘DC’ talk like that. One, because I don’t see that when I seen him fight him the second time. I seen a guy that was definitely beatable, and I didn’t feel like that when I was in there with Jon Jones. Would some more size absolutely help? For sure. If I was bigger and a couple inches taller and had a few more inches of reach on me, absolutely that’s easier to do for sure. Also, if you’re a heavyweight and a big power striker, maybe you can get away with putting Jon Jones out without having to be better than him for an entire fight. That’s how I look at it.
