    Romero might knock him out
    I doubt Jones can get him down or keep him there

    It’s a fun fight
    I personally want to see Jacare vs Jones

    The top middleweights are better than the top LHWs

    I'd lean towards Jon but I wouldn't be surprised if You'll landed one huge shot.

    He beat Luke who had similar proportions to Jon.

    Romero would never get close enough to deliver any form of strikes.

    Jones GOAT.

    Can Romero pass a test? I'd like to see this fight. Romero can bust him up

    Romero would hang tough the first 2.5 rounds then run out of gas. Jones would then work him over with wrestling and get a late 4th round submission.

    Jones has no issue with Jacare, or Yoel. No idea what you think Jacare has for Jon.

    Luke was getting lit up by Branch, and was put away in 90 seconds by Bisping. Their size may be similar but that's where it ends with Jones and Rockhold.

    Jones would outstrike him easily until the third round where Yoel would land his missile to win lhw title, KOTY and FOTY awards.

    It would be a very dirty fight. Jones is the favorite, but Romero could find a way to win.

    VS. any other fighter, Romero gets in and delivers the goods.

    VS. Jones...nah.

    Jones has fought virtually every configuration of fighter...and has succeeded, often times, succeeded GREATLY.

    Jones avoids damage and causes enough damage until Romero gasses. Then he closes and finishes. 3rd or 4th round.

    Yoel's style is unique... he just stands there, motionless and covers up--doing next to nothing, and then explodes 3-4 times a round. It's a good strategy for someone with such a fast-twitch body--any more action and he'd gas out.

    But against Jones this is suicide, he would just get kicked into oblivion.
