Absolutely. He also had some quality wins before then too (like Hamill), and he's one of only two men in total to ever finish Matt Hamill.

If DC wins Jones gets the instant rematch which puts these two guys in Limbo.

Since the UFC wants to keep challengers coming (and LHW doesnt have much in the way of new blood) I see them fighting lesser talents or guys who don't seem to improve in the meantime. AJ/Glover for instance.

Depends.

How long is Gus out for?

Jones fights in September and it's been his routine to fight in April.

If Gus is out until the end of the year he might as well wait and face the winner of Jones/DC in April

It's supposed to take 5-6 weeks to recover. He's not going to want to jump back into training full throttle though so surely it'll be extra time on top of that.

unless DC wins in which case they will have to rematch and that puts him in limbo.

It might be good for Gus to take a fight then late this year.

I guess that's a possibility.

If DC wins an instant rematch is pretty much a guarantee for Jones.

Gus already deserves a shot. He'll be ready for the winner of DC vs. Jones.

AJ can fight someone and then get the next shot.
