IMO Jones has Glover, Gustafson, and Cormier (eventually). But I agree on Cain, JDS is clearly #1 contender for a while and Cain destroyed him. Anyone truthfully can win especially at heavyweight, however I don't see any HUGE threat to Cain in the near future

Aldo vs Pettis
Maybe Andy vs Jones or Jones vs Cain

That fight was never going to happen.

pettis vs aldo seems possible some time in the future, and both are down for it

Can't see a scenario how GSP wins that fight, he would have had to keep a big MW down for 25 minutes.. which doesn't sound very likely and on feet he would have to stay alive against one of the best strikers in UFC with the best accuracy... with the biggest finishing rate in titlematches... Anderson would have landed a shot in 25 minutes that would have wobbled GSP and it would have been over..

+ Anderson has a nasty guard and really underrated BJJ
