But they're fighting at light-heavyweight... If Jones beats Cormier it proves he can beat a light-heavyweight Cormier. Lol

Beating a high ranked ex-heavyweight might suggest that he can possibly hang with the top 5-10 in the division but just look at how much trouble an equally tall Alexander Gustafsson gave him. Jones would have to change the way he fights completely if he were to regularly fight against competition his own size.

No man there is reason Jones never talks about going to heavy anymore. Jones trains with heavies like Browne and Arlovski etc etc at Greg Jackson's and I think he realized heavies are no joke and is afraid.

Cormier never fought JDS, former champ and consensus no 2, or Werdum, the current no 1 contender.

Both guys smashed Nelson more than DC did.

Im not sure what sort revisionist history some of u guys are living in but:

1. Cormier was constantly ranked number 2 or 3 at Hw
2. Cormier immedietly jumped into the LHW top 5 without a single win at lhw.

And Overeem and Bigfoot beating Jones? Are some of u guys serious or just trolling.

JDS is quite different from Cormier so im not so sure about that. JDS KOed Cain so really who says he couldnt KO Jones once? But i would pick Jones over any HW even now without knowing if he is better than Cormier.

Because ultimately that's what this game is about: It's two guys going in there and looking to end one another's dreams.
