Jon Jones: "I'll definitely move up to heavyweight probably the end of 2013."

Sick!! I can't wait to see him against Velasquez. But JDS and Overeem will be sweet fights too. I don't think he beats any of these three, but it will be awesome to watch!

He won't have a huge reach advantage there. Depending on how much weight he puts on I would say he's bottom top 10 @ best.
He's proven me wrong before so in time we shall see.

I want to see him fight Struve or Overeem. But let's be realistic, he would get destroyed by JDS and Velasquez

Yeah, that's the exciting thing for me. We'll finally get to see him fighting guys his own size and see how good he can really be. He's a great fighter, but I'm curious to see him fight someone his own size. I think Bonnar was really the only one I can remember that was close.

Good. Everybody can stop whining now, and Jones haters can go back to enjoying LHW. I see Jones losing to JDS and Overeem at this point, but people are acting as if Jones will stay stagnant. There's no logical reason to think he won't continue improving at a rapid rate.

Funny how the same folks who have been swearing that Overeem is a much better fighter than he was a mere few years ago, act as if Jones will get no better than he is now. Wishful thinking, I suppose. I think Jones vs. Cain is 50/50 though. I'm not sure why the consensus is that Cain walks over Jones.

Forgot about Struve. That would be a sick fight too. Agreed on Velasquez and JDS. I think Overeem too provided his takedown d is up for the challenge.

well.... that is the #1 requirement of being considered p4p.


he will easily take the #2 spot if he does.

He's only 25. If he goes to heavyweight in another year, he will still have several years of his prime there. I think people are hoping that he turns out to be a mediocre HW, because if he does well there, he won't have any more challenges in the foreseeable future.
