Fans Discuss If Conor McGregor Would Beat Jon Jones At 205 Pounds

A UFC fan has started a huge debate on Twitter after asking if a 205 lbs and six foot two Conor McGregor would defeat Jon Jones.

McGregor caused controversy on Saturday with his GOAT Twitter thread and Jones' response has had fans thinking how a fight would go.

Twitter user @octagonjones decided to bump McGregor's height and weight up and posed the question - could he defeat the current light heavyweight champion?

Fans have reacted to the tweet and it's fair to say that opinion is split on if 'Notorious' could emerge victorious over 'Bones'

It would certainly be interesting to see the duo face off in the octagon.

Jones is not afraid of mixing it up with fighters of different weight classes, with the last year seeing him feud with middleweight Israel Adesanya and heavyweight Francis Ngannou respectively.

Ngannou is Jones' most recent target and the pair were allegedly in negotiations for a super-fight.

But both men took to social media last week and put the rumours of a potential fight to bed.

McGregor, meanwhile, has shown he isn't afraid to mix it up in different weight divisions.

He is a former featherweight and lightweight champion, and is currently fighting at welterweight.
