    Jones has one viable contender left at 205, one of Johnson and Gus, so it is worth considering Middleweights who may move up. Weidman will eventually, Anderson could after he beats Diaz, but the one I'd like to see mostly is Luke Rockhold challenging Jon Jones.

    The bad blood between DC and Jones could make for a very entertaining feud between Jones and his close friend Rockhold and could be another big money fight. Rockhold is 6 ft 3 with great reach and could be an elite LHW if he wanted.

    Anyone else hope that UFC considers this fight in the event that Rockhold wins his next MW fight?

    Are you serious? A middleweight?

    Rockhold is a big Middleweight and would be extremely capable at 205.

    Jones is a huge LHW.

    Bad idea

    Jones' track record vs middleweights is impeccable.
