Probably, yeah. Davis can match him athletically though and maybe can grind out a decision on the ground. Bones probably gets him out of there inside of the first 5 though. Hendo also has a chance with that right hand.

I like Phil, but he's a bit too hesitant on the feet. I think Rashad's the best chance because his takedowns are lightning fast. We'll see if he gets past Phil Davis next month. People will say Hendo, but Hendo would get hurt really badly. I like him and all, but Jones would slaughter him.

Phil really needs to smoothen out that striking. Its pretty painful to watch sometimes.

Hendo's only shot is to land that right hand of his and hope for the KO.

Rashad...idk...who knows how good he'll be after so many injuries.

If Bones F's around and tries to strike with Hendo he likely will get Ko'ed, but he beats hendo easy if he grapples, Hendo obviously is a good grappler in his own right and has the credentials but he can't stop Bones from taking him down and finishing him, if he couldn't stop Sheilds, no chance against Bones. But yeah one H Bomb and Bones would be asleep. IMO Hendo has the best chance. Maybe Gustaffson in the future if he works on his takedown D.

Phil is just a wrestler. Jones can strike, wrestle and he has good jits.

Sherdog is blowing up right now, can't wait for Machida, Rampage, whoever else never had a chance, the real answer to stopping Jones is this *insert name* thread.

Outside of Henderson's right fist I think Shogun is the only person who might beat Jones and that would be like 1 out of 50 fights

He's so good so fast that he already has that Anderson hate on him. People will talk up whoever he fights until he beats them, and then they instantly become a can who isn't as good as Bones' next opponent. lol

Nobody is saying Phil Davis would beat Jon Jones. With Jones right now though, it's a matter of who poses some sort of threat. Phil Davis, provided he beats Rashad, does that. He is the only guy that matches up athletically and is the best wrestler at 205. He probably gets blasted, so what? Everyone else probably gets blasted too.

If Jones struck with Anderson for as long as he did with Machida, Anderson would have ended him. That comes from a guy who somewhat likes Jones and hates Anderson. I could actually see a scenario where that fight happens no matter how small the chance. I seriously doubt it but if Chael get past Munoz and then Silva and Chael fight and Chael dominates him like the first fight but without the sub or he finishes him, Anderson may just not want to go through with fighting such an asshole again who has his number and go up to try his luck at getting the taste out of his mouth with a few highlights before retiring. Very doubtful, but not an impossible scenario like some other superfights people throw out.

I really hate elbows in MMA. They really need to do something about them. Whether it's forcing fighters to wear some sort of padding on their elbows or something else.

What's so bad about elbows? I know some people have this idea that they only cause cuts that end fights, but hardly any fights have been stopped due to cuts from elbows. I'm all for as many tools as possible. Elbows are great for giving guys on top something extra to use. Knees would be great too.

I'm okay with elbows, knees, and kicks and think all should be legal.

Not every fighter who uses elbows causes cuts, but bony dudes like Florian and Jones cause cuts any time they connect with an elbow. Often, it's just a glancing blow that doesn't do anything to the person receiving the elbow other the opening up a (nasty) cut. I think the Unified Rules committee should always be working to curb maneuvers that cause instantaneous damage without actually "hurting" the recipient.

Knees and kicks are defensible and they don't just cause cuts like most elbows do. The defense for elbows is moving your head. If the guy barely misses, he opens up a gash on your head. That's ******, imo.

I've taken a pretty hard stance on this one. I've been anti-elbows for awhile. Right now, I have to say I just don't want them to be legal because I can't think of a good way to reduce the cuts. I'd be happy if they simply started with DQ's/NC's for guys who blatantly rub their forearm/elbow against a guy's head. That's about the dirtiest thing you can do.

I'm pretty sure elbows hurt like hell instead of just causing superficial damage. Tito in his prime used elbow very well. Jones right now is probably the best at using them. Just look at how he broke the faces of Brandon Vera and Matt Hamill. There is no way I'd want him robbed of his best weapon.

Also, look at how Diego Sanchez used elbows against Clay Guida off his back. It was a helluva weapon that probably won him the fight even though he wasn't on top. The judges actually took note of that for once.

I wish Lyoto and Anderson weren't such close friends. Lyoto just doesn't have the power to stop guys without connecting on a few really good blows, at 185 he wouldn't be out powered by all of the top guys and his BJJ wouldn't be a big problem in that division either. Plus I've just always been curious to see Anderson and Lyoto light each other up. Maybe we get Spider to sleep with Lyoto's wife? He's just such a fun fighter to watch.

I'm happy for Bones, dudes a beast, JDS v Bones is going to be an amazing fight one day.

Plus I've just always been curious to see Anderson and Lyoto light each other up. Maybe we get Spider to sleep with Lyoto's wife? He's just such a fun fighter to watch.

I'm happy for Bones, dudes a beast, JDS v Bones is going to be an amazing fight one day.
JDS by utter destruction. Knocks him out twitching.

Yeah, I don't see Bones ever going up to HW. He loses his advantages there. Also, his striking is sloppy and he really does get by from length alone when he's standing. We saw that in the Machida fight. Sharp fighters can tag Jones pretty easily, and he doesn't respond well to getting hit.

Jones is big but I'm not sure he is thick enough to be able to carry the 40-45lbs of extra weight he would need to hang with the big guys like Brock and The Reem. His length and speed are his biggest asset, having a reach like that allows him to keep his distance and make guys hesitate on storming in on him.

The thing that has impressed me the most about him is his Jiu Jitsu, he's only been fighting MMA for a little over 3 years and he has shown the ability to sub some pretty legit fighters. He's so young and so good it's scary to think about how good he will be a few years down the road if he continues to develop. He's just been running through people and yet he's barely scratched the surface of what he's capable of.

I know a lot of people are already sick of him and probably think I'm nut hugging but I don't really see any prospects that are capable of giving him serious problems at the moment. The best chance of beating him is either launching a bomb and hoping it connects or getting inside the pocket where he can't use his reach advantage and hope to land some punches.

People always try to say a guy should move up when he is dominating a division... GSP, Ando, BJ, Torres, Aldo... Or move down in Fedor's case when there was no one in the HW division... Why should they? BJ did it and now LW is super deep and his career is ruined.
