I doubt he would have been a dominate champ like Jones, but I could see him holding the title, and maybe defending it once. The division would have still been super competitive. I still think Chuck, Rampage, Machida, Shogun, and Rashad would have held the title at least once until Jones, Gus, and Cormier arrived.
