    Let's assume Jon Jones moves up to fight the reigning Heavyweight Champ. Both are roided.

    Yes, with ease.

    Turtling up against Jon Jones will not be good for your health.

    Yes, if he can stop cormier's take downs he can stop Brock's. Brock has no hope standing with him

    Brock is much bigger than DC and he has fast takedowns.

    And of course both are roided, we have no idea how they fight without roiding.

    Vanilla Gorilla is such a perfect description of Bork, wonder why no one at the WWE/UFC ever thought of nicknaming him that

    Regardless of doping, Jones whoops Lesnar. I don't really get how it's even a debate. Do people think that Lesnar could hold Jones down? Because when he doesn't, he gets bludgeoned.

    Simple!
    Jones never fought someone as big as Lesnar (not even close) and he had trouble with Gus.
    Good record, but let's not compare Chael, MW Machida, MW Vitor, MW Rashad, injured Shogun, Rampage who didn't finish Hamil with 2009 Brock.

    "And he had trouble with Gus"



    He had trouble with Gus' striking. Brock has CM Punk level striking compared to Gus. Stop.

    Yeah, CM Punk level. He had also problems taking him down, that is what Jones does in every fight. I don't see how he takes Brock down.

    Think it depends on how well he can keep weight on.

    It was one of his nicknames in his first WWE run, Taz would call him the Vanilla Gorilla.

    The fact you think they have the same takedowns,style and size that goes with that is funny
