I don't think this is a good "first fight back" for Arslan. He took an enormous amount of punishment in his last fight and to come back against a guy whose KO'd his last 5 opponents doesn't seem like such a good idea...

It's odd that Jones is seen as a big cruiserweight when used to be a welterweight/light middleweight contender a decade ago.

Not saying that it's wrong because he does look bigger than Arslan although Arslan has been a natural CW for his whole career.

He is just one of those fighters whose tall frame has been able to carry the extra weight very well.
