If Jones loses he getting a rematch. Gus is in a bad position because hell have to fight a top 5 to get another title shot and theyre all bad matchups for him

I agree that it would be bad for Gus because there would be an immediate rematch. Jones and Aldo are probably the only champs that deserve it.

Amen brother.

but i would like to think Gus calls out Jones after he loses. So we can get that rematch. If i were Gus, that's exactly what i would do. If you can't beat Jones, who you clearly have a stylistically good match against, then fighting DC seems like a tough stretch.

And we have to remember that if DC actually makes it to this fight, he's getting knee surgery afterwards anyway. So Gus vs. Jones imo still is a high possibility

Excluding age yes I agree also, but considering dc is 35 he will begin to decline in the next couple of years so gus will have plenty of chances.

The LHW division is full of interesting possibilities nowadays, we'll just have to see how it plays out. Can't wait to see the possible matches between the trio.

People want to be led to the truth, only you can find the truth for yourself. Then it will be with you forever unalterable and infinitely expandable.

Naw a dc win is good for Gus. He'll end up with the next title shot regardless and if he loses to dc for the title the jones rematch will still be there due to the bad blood.

If jones beats dc he only gets one possible big payday not two.

bad for Gus because Pat will get his shot against DC first.

No. No it isn't. The only time immediate rematches should take place in my opinion is when the first fight was a robbery or controversial. If DC knocks Jon out or GNP's him for 5 rounds and wins the belt, Jon should have to beat a top 5 before getting a rematch. There never used to be any of these stupid immediate rematches a few years back. If Forrest took the belt from Rampage via close decision, well then Rampage had to earn his shot back at the title by winning fights. That's how it should be.
