Fedor isn't Vitor Belfort.
This fight isn't even debatable. Jon Jones would defeat Fedor any day any where the fight goes no matter what. Jon Jones is an overall better fighter with a better style and higher quality being Excuses and incredulity for Fedor's losses doesn't make him look any better than what he really is, a overhyped overrated male ronda rousey. Nothing here is an argument and if anyone can spark one up it's more than likely to be some sort of bullshit and lies. Jon Jones is better than Fedor Emelianenko and if you disagree tell me why and be honest with your facts.
Fedor got beat by posers that jones would violate in every sense of the word
Fedor would use Jones across the mat like a mop.
Hell no. lmao And Fedor was in his Prime when he lost to Bigfoot.
Prime Fedor would destroy Jon Jones.
If Victor Belfort could get an arm bar Fedor could do it too.
