    Ducking HW like the plague. There is nothing left for him in that division yet instead of fighting the double champ one of the greatest Daniel Cormier for a 3rd time at HW he goes on to fight guys like Anthony Smith. WW was stacked always while LHW has been dead for years yet the champion wont move up to test himself against bigger guys in HW .

    Calls out DC for a LHW fight , then declines to fight him at HW . No wonder he wants nothing of HW .

    I definitely think Jones should move up soon. LHW is pretty weak right now and there isn't much competition for Jones.

    Yeah Jones not fighting at HW is weaksauce considering he easily has the frame for it.

    Step the fuck up.

    Lol! More revisionist history from Bore St. Pierre sack lickers.

    Silva fought MULTIPLE times at LHW, including KOing the guy who son'd Shogun.

    Meanwhile GSP ducked MW like the plague for YEARS when Silva was reigning champ. He moved up ONCE, specifically to fight the weakest MW champ he could get his hands on... one eyed geriatric Bisping. Lied to Dayna about wanting to defend the belt knowing full well he was gonna "catch colitis" when legit contenders started showing up.


    Bore vaseline enthusiasts feeling emotional because Jones has never been beaten by another man in the octagon, while their emotional support hero tapped to strikes.......from a midget LOL



    Is normal.

    Penn is a legend and the reason why he fought in so many weightclasses make him what he is - One of the GOATs (Top 10)

    Silva has a top 5 win at welterweight, middleweight, and light heavyweight.

    Neither Jones or Silva have been finished by a person who could have fought 2 weight classes below in Matt Serra though

    Bisping was the MW champ who KOd Rockhold and beat Silva up (- the cheapshot)
    Still a better win that Silva wins though considering he came back from a 4 year layoff and another ACL injury

    Silva is the only fighter I'm aware of that has beaten a top 10 guy in three different divisions.

    GSP only fought in MW because Michael Bisping happened to be belt holder (ducking real contenders).

    If Romero, Rockhold, Whittaker, Gastelum, Jacare, Mousasi, Brunson, Kennedy, Silva, Weidman etc was belt holder, GSP would still just be talking about his eventual comeback.

    Truth.

    As confirmed by the very respectable John Danaher : GSP plan to fight at MW was before Bisping KOd Rockhold to become the champion.

    When did fighting in 2 weight classes become a big deal? The gaps in MMA weight classes are huge.

    30 lbs of fat isn't going to make DC and better against Jones, if Jones went to HW he beats DC again. Being fatter isn't an advantage. Bader and DC show that any LHW can do at least as well at HW as they've done at LHW, the HWs are all terrible.

    No but not cutting a shit ton of weight is going to make him better.
