    Yoel Romero made a move from MW to LHW but the question is,

    Can he beat former Champ Jon Jones?
    How about the Champ Daniel Cormier?

    Yes. Romero is explosive and dangerous as fuck.

    I would not think he would be the favorite against neither but he could pull the win.

    A fight with Jones would be awesome... just to see who cheats more.

    Possible because of his power and explosiveness but not likely imo.

    Both beat him imo.

    Those are epic fights but presuming Jones gets three more years then Romero is 44 by then and Cormier looks to have 2 particular fights in his mind before he retires, Shogun and Brock. I doubt either ever happens :(

    It'll be awesome if Romero comes back +20 lbs of muscle though. Ronnie Coleman in the octagon.

    Jones oblique kicks Romero’s legs into Bolivian. Jones picks him apart from a distance for 5 rounds.

    But, if anyone could explode and randomly make something happen, it’s probably Romero.

    There's two answers to this.

    1) Romero can beat anyone if he can land. He's always on the verge of knocking the fuck out of his opponent.
    2) He couldn't even beat Whittaker. How the fuck will he beat Jones?

    205 Romero v Jon Jones first fight back and heavily USADA-tested would be an interesting matchup.

    last time JJ came back heavily tested after a long layoff, his first fight was very cautious. i'd love to see if Romero can get inside on that Jon Jones. i'd love to see if that Jon Jones attempts to grapple with Romero.

    Enhanced Jones beats enhanced Gay Jesus
    Natural Jones losses to enhanced Gay Jesus
    Enhanced Jones beats natural Gay Jesus
    Natural Jones beats natural Gay Jesus

    USADA beat Jones twice
    USADA beat Gay Jesus once but was overturned
    Since we are talking about Jones and Gay Jesus, so USADA is irrelevant

    In conclusion, Jones beats Gay Jesus 3 out of 4 fights
