Does Cain/JDS 2 prove Bones could readily go up to HW and demolish them both ?

    Some people all already commenting that this fight shows that the caliber of HW fighters simply is not up to par and that the HW fighters just aren't the great athletes we thought they were. I personally feel this isn't true and largely is a result of 2 HWs trying to fight a full5 round fighting mixing in TDs with head and body shot combos continuously and wearing themselves down, which basic physiology tells us is bound to happen. I do think that JDS was just not near his best, much like Cain wasn't for their first fight. But I do not think fi Jones was fighting as a HW he would necessarily be UFC champ - he might have tired just as easily as these 2 fighting at this weight. Am I completely off base or does anyone else concur ?

    if jones fought cain right now as is he would get wrecked because of size, cain would take those chicken legs down

    if jones puts on weight to go to hw he might not be the same guy he is now and he could gas

    jones could also just steamroll everyone at heavyweight, who knows

    if Jones packs on weight for HW he would also likely gas quickly

    Uh, no.

    Jones actually doing it proves it and nothing else does.

    Hard to say if Jones adds weight and stays about the same with a boost in strength then I see him taking over HW. But that is a big IF.

    I have to admit that JDS looked like shit and Cain was def not impressive.

    I think Bones would murder both.

    Lol Jones wouldn't even have to gain any weight. He would wreck Cain in 1 hour notice.

    why would it have any relation to how well bones would do in the heavyweight division? doesn't even make sense. he would get destroyed plus his cardio isn't even that good.

    No...just no.
    IF Bones thought he could....he would move up.....HVY WT champ sounds better than LT HVY WT champ.

    I think this post demonstrates complete ignorance of physiology, not the other way around.

    Typical shit. Before this fight=Cain and Jones get KO'd easily by JDS. Now that Cain wins, Jones somehow is the best?

    Cain is the best. Morons.

    I do think Jones could beat Cain too. That would be a fight of possibly the two ugliest fighters in the UFC :]
