including bigfoot, his last six opponents (minus staring) had an average age of 35 at fight night. none of those guys (except bigfoot back then) was close to the form they had when they made their names.

don't get me wrong, he did exactly what one would expect from a future champ and teared right through them, but so did roger huerta.

i mean, do you really think (not wish, THINK) that jones would have lost a round to any of those guys? especially the lhw guys?
Lol Bigfoot would tko Bones. There is a reason he hasn't moved up to HW. If DC can rag doll a 260 lb master grappler like Barnett, what do u think will happen to 220 lb Jones?

DC and Cain are very competitive and Jones has no one on Cains level to prepare. This is gonna be a beatdown.

Fan of Jones, but totally think he will lose
If he gets past DC with a decisive win though, he will be the GOAT in a couple years as I struggle to see anyone taking it off him over the next few years.

Cheering for Jones, but worried as hell.

Either that or DCs eyes are poked out of his skull.
Jones is a way better wrestler than JDS and has a far better fight IQ.

It will not be ANYTHING like those fights.

What an amazingly retarded thing to say.

The general consensus i get from most DC/Jones threads is that Cormier is going to wreck Jones, i think this is due to Cormier used to fighting at HW and also him being an olympic wrestler. Honestly though i don't see it that way, i see Jones outworking DC on the feet, picking him apart from range having more than 10 inch in reach advantage, Cormier is going to have a hard time getting inside and when he does he has to deal with elbows and Jones' clinch game and wrestling ain't no joke either.

It's easy to pick the bigger and stronger guy with better wrestling credentials, but you got to remember this is MMA, and as a MMArtist Jones is a much more well-rounded fighter.

The clinch game in this one is going to be interesting, if DC can control the clinch and get Jones down he may well win this, but if he struggles in the clinch i see Jones winning a comfortable UD. If DC wants to strike, i see Jones winning a UD too.

This fight will mirror Jones vs Rampage.

DC will break and quit.
