    Jones walks around at 215-220lb on fight night but is getting called out by HWs who walk around at 245+.

    What's so badass about that ? Jones is not a massive LHW, he's tall and makes weight easily. HWs are butthurt that he easily beat Cormier who used to be one of them.

    Jones has no obligation to fight at HW. He is the LHW goat.

    If Jones can make 185 there's nothing cowardly about it.

    Every Heavyweight probably wants to fight Jones, it's probably the biggest payday they will ever see even if they lose.

    I think calling out Heavies and saying you could beat them and not moving up to do so is more cowardly.

    HWs calling out Jones are looking for a huge payday, win or lose.

    Jones actually started the thing with Werdum, saying that he would beat him, Werdum weighed in at like to 230-232, not that much heavier than Jones.

    just curious, who said ( or what source) stated JJ is only 215-220 in the cage on fight night? The dude looked big in the cage. He said himself he will be 227 in the cage.

    215 def no way. If he was only 215, that means after the weigh in, rehydration, food, etc. all the way until fight night he only gained (or put back) 10lbs...that's not much even for a WW.

    I don't really see the point of call outs unless the person doing so as the challenger is actually willing to and able to meet and fight the person being called out.

    Unless one would actually change weight classes and work their way into a position to make the fight what is the point of the call out? The person being challenged should not have to make compromises or go out of his way to meet the challenger. The onus should be on the challenger to meet the conditions requisite for the fight happen and not the other way around.

    Cormier was willing to cut the weight and work his way to fighting Jones. He did so and should be given props for that unlike the vast majority of these empty challenges cross weight class (or cross organization, major ranking disparity and etc.) challenges.

    So is Anderson Silva is a coward for calling out Georges St Pierre a million times?

    Silva apparently walks around like 220 and GSP was around 190 in those days.

    What a coward!

    Jones has been talking about potentially moving up to HW, the moment he started with that, it sort of invalidated the entire HW's shouldn't call out Jones thing.

    What if they dropped down to LHW and then called him out?

    Does this make Jones a coward for calling out Weidman?

    Jones kind of invited it by saying he'd fight at hw.

    Silva isn't 220, more like 210, and that's reeally out of shape. He came in barely trained against Bonnar at 202lbs.

    so many people exaggerate his weight, the guy came in at 182lbs against Leites.
