Little bit different citing physical characteristics as opposed to intangible characteristics, or skills.
Can't really liken an 84" reach to running fast or striking accurately. 2 out of 3 are abilities; refined skills. The other is simply a physical trait that one has regardless of skills or abilities.
No doubt Jon's physical makeup plays a part in his wins, but it's unfair to say he only wins because of it.
Faulting him for his athleticism (influenced as it may be by his size) is silly.
"If he wasn't athletic and physically gifted, he wouldn't win."
He also probably wouldn't be fighting in MMA for a career.
