He's going to eat a lot of kicks, elbows and spinning shit.
Spinning fingers of doom like Retina seeking missiles of distance control.

No Evans, no Gus, no Machida or Shogun. Come on man remind me why this dude gets a title shot again?
Come on dude Barnett was on a 7 fight winning streak which DC snapped, and then Barnett won his next 2 after that. Bigfoot destroyed Fedor, Obereem, Arlovski and Browne. Those guys are good heavyweights. Jones has never even fought a heavyweight, although he can easily fight there if he desired. He also beat Roy Nelson, who is a good fighter.

We can play that game with Jones too. Shogun has lost 5 of his last 8 - he needs to retire. Machida was way to small for Jones. Gus have him a beating, and Rashad hasn't been a world beater as of late.

The only pie DC will be eating will be the apple pie sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar served at the nearest Popeyes the day after the fight...

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Possibly the strawberry and cream cheese pie if it's available (depending on his preference)

Browne is the only guy in your list that isn't washed-up.

And he won't be fighting a heavy-weight in the next fight. The heavyweight talk is garbage. If anything it is a negative. Most heavyweights are slower than LHW fighters. Most heavyweight fighters also don't have much of a ground game. Only a few are exceptions and DC fought none of them in their prime. In fact DC never fought any of the top UFC heavyweights (Cain, JDS, Werdum, Browne).

Jones has fought and beat everyone in the Top 10 in his division except two new arrivals (DC & Johnson) and Phil Davis. And Gus clearly lost the fight against Jones. You're just another sore loser. Machida was way to small for Jones. And sad to say so is DC.

The only one who needs humble pie is Jones, a big a$$ bowl of it.
