Jesus vs Negan + Saviour Soldiers
This is probably one of Jesus's most impressive fights. He manages to move fast enough to get clear hits on 3 Saviour men on open ground. While also avoiding the gunfire, he then takes it one step further. Jesus takes on Negan and beats him with ease. Now this is Negan we are talking about. Not just any old character. And if he wanted to he could have killed him. But he hadn't set out to do that as he says himself.

What makes the above fight even more impressive is that Negan is someone when holding Lucille is capable of taking down a veritable giant in Beta. Who is by far the tallest character in the comic at over 7 feet and is likely the strongest. When Negan and Beta engage in battle Negan makes short work of him.
And Jesus treated Negan as if he were just a normal Saviour.
-Scans From The Walking Dead #159- Hope you don't mind, Scot, but I just wanted to add a few tidbits to this...
a.) Negan is a tall motherf*cker in his own right. He makes normal sized guys, like Rick, look small in comparison:
So I'd say Negan is around 6'5-6'6.
b.) And like you mentioned: Beta is BY FAR the tallest character in the series, as he dwarfs even Negan in height:
Given that Negan only reaches his shoulders, Beta is undoubtedly over the 7' mark, imo.
c.) Beta also has very impressive strength to go along with his size -- we saw this when he casually lifted Negan off the ground with one arm:
d.) And as Negan noted, Beta is very fast for his size as well:
Despite Beta's uber physical stats, Negan still owned him pretty easily(as your scans depict)... Yet Jesus disarmed/subdued Negan as though he were a talentless feeb. IOW, Jesus >> Negan >> Beta >> most others.
Jesus truly lives up to his namesake... His skills are off the charts.
I also wanted to post this because it really gives us a sense as to how much Rick trusts Jesus:
Rick: "Jesus has already cleared you. He finds people, sees if they're right to be invited in. We trust him... So now we trust you."
Oh, and Jesus totally knows how badass he is:
Rick says to Maggie: "Did you figure out how many more people you can spare?"
Jesus responds with: "I'm staying. How many more could you need?"
