If there's one weakness in the game of Jon Jones it's his striking.
That also happens to be the strength of Vitor Belfort. "Bones" will enjoy a very comfortable 10.5" reach advantage over "The Phenom," though Vitor is no stranger to having been on the wrong side of that stat. In his last three wins, he's been at a disadvantage, but he finished all three fights.
Vitor is known for his fast and powerful hands that had Wanderlei Silva and Rich Franklin staring up at the ceiling before the end of the night. Vitor looks for an opening and rushes his opponent, using the punches in bunches theory to overwhelm his opponent. With 12 KO/TKO victories due to punches, it's safe to say that the theory works. Vitor lands 1.39 significant strikes per minute and is 48.2 percent accurate with his strikes.
Jones likes to use a soft jab to set the distance as well as push kicks to the knee. He enjoys mixing in spinning attacks to throw his opponents off guard and to stay unpredictable. He has a very open stance that allows him to throw kicks from unorthodox positions. Because of this he lands 3.9 significant strikes per 15 minutes. He's also 51.3 percent accurate on his strikes.
Advantage—Vitor Belfort. Jones has the reach, but Belfort has the speed. Speed kills.
