    • 1. Robert Whittaker (20-5-0; 185 lb / 84 kg)
    • 2. Paulo Costa (13-0-0; 185 lb / 84 kg)
    • 3. Yoel Romero (13-4-0; 185 lb / 84 kg)
    • 4. Jared Cannonier (13-4-0; 185 lb / 84 kg)
    • 5. Darren Till (18-2-0; 185 lb / 84 kg)
    And Izzy.

    All these dudes have sick striking and TDD that would let them dictate the fight standing. Jones isn't exactly known for his ko power, so I doubt he can even wobble Till.

    I think Cannonier is PROBLEM for Jones. Romero wouldn't fight him cuz they are friends. Paulo by whatever he wants. And a focused Whittaker is a dangerous man for anyone, especially with his lethal leg kicks.

    No they would finish him very easily. Jones is not that good and at this point I think that any top 5 from WW to HW would beat him.

    In all seriousness, I think most of them hold a distinct speed advantage over Jones. Speed kills. I don't know that they could finish him, but I think they could outwork him and decisively beat him. That is, of course, unless Jones gets tired of getting outworked striking and decides at any time to throw them on their head and end the fight.

    Jones' greco style is what makes taking down taller guys hard. He lacks the same leverage strength he has against shorter opponents. All those guys are shorter than him and he would probably toss them pretty easily.

    Jones will have trouble vs Izzy and Cost, he beats the rest rather easily

    Izzy got pieced up by a 5-8 wrestler.. Reyes would be bad for Izzy.

    Jones wouldn’t have the speed advantage over Izzy that KG did though. Also, jones got pieces up by two tall guys with much worse striking than Izzy..

    None of those guys can stop Jones from taking them down and unleashing elbows.

    Romero would stand a chance because the man is a freak and last night changed my mind about an Izzy fight, but he'd rightfully be favoured over all of them

    I like
    Yoel
    Izzy
    Costa

    I think Rob, Cannonier and Till are much better suited for MW

    Wow.

    New level shit posting.

    Jones is starting to bring out Donald Trump levels of hate/derangement.
