I think Jones would be the favorite since he still has more experience against top competitors and has a body size advantage.

However, Weidman has a longer reach (78") than anyone Jones has fought as champion. Only Bonnar has a longer reach than Weidman and he did have some striking success against Jones.

Weidman has continued to surprise me fight after fight. I'd still take Jones but it would be more competitive that many think, and a victory from The Chris is not outside the realm of possibility.

As good as Weidman has looked his last few fights, I can't vote on this poll until I see more from him.
