I'd be more interested to see his transformation into Red Dragon.

Some people underestimate the difference in weight. Sparring with an obese brother and with the bigs gloves at the gym is something else that getting hit with the smaller gloves by a naturally heavier guy. Taking one on the chin from Machida is I assume peanuts compared to a bomb from let's say JDS, Hunt or Bigfoot. Look at Maldonado. Stipe laid him out with 2 punches, Struve walked right through them and Nelson took like 400 of them and still came forward. I'm not saying that will happen to him but I do not see him cleaning out the HW division with ease, he won't have some physical advantages that he has at LHW.

To challenge him? You mean Cain or JDS would destroy Jones in laughable fashion right?

Probably because he's the champion and still has guys to fight at LHW, but shit what do I know.

I think if Jones wanted to he could bulk up and do really well at HW. He's tall enough and his skill/record speaks for itself.

Do you think it's because he's too humble to want to be champ in both divisions?
Or that they just aren't big enough of a challenge?

Cue tape of Frank Mir taking Jon down in 6 seconds, not the one where he took down DC(or had 3 other security do it for him & then pretend he did on social media).

The reason is, if he accepts a fight with a top 5 Heavy, he will get taken to the wood shed & he knows it.
he's never not made LHW how is he a heavyweight?

He's a LHW. He doesn't even cut that much.
