    I'm pretty sure Jones is going to finish Gus in the rematch. Gus had the best performance he could wish for against Jones the first time and he still lost fair and square. Jones is going to look much better the second time now that he has seen what gus has to offer.

    DC is Jones biggest threat by far but I dont think DC has the tools to beat jones. DC has the advantage in wrestling but his Gnp is weak and his BJJ is weaker. If he gets Jones down I dont think he will be able to hurt Jones. and Jones proved he is a beast fighting at close range, it would be a long night for DC in Jones guard.

    If he beats those 2 and looks great doing it he is going to have a hard time selling fights at LHW.

    WHy would he want to go to HW? Fights are easier for him at 205. The more he wins, the more money he makes. The guy has damn near finished everyone he has fought.

    I can't stand Jones, he is a dirty fighter, but it is in his best interest to stay at 205.

    i dont like champs moving up / down after they "cleared out" a division. There is allways someone to fight / rematch. I like to have a dominant champ for longer periods of time.

    If anything after he beats DC + Gus there are guys like: Rumble / Davis etc waiting for their chance.

    If Jones beats those 2 and then become the HW champ he will become the undebateble GOAT

    I agree. But it's too bad he won't.

    I agree with you...He should stay at 205. I also agree he is a dirty fighter...But unlike TS, I, like many others, feel Gus won the first fight & I have no doubt he will win the rematch. :icon_chee

    If he wins both of those fights...then he will have cleared out the division with no REAL contenders left. I'm sure everyone would want to see a DC rematch no matter what happens. He can sit there and rack up the wins and the $$ for as long as he likes. Or he can move up, whatever...I'll just enjoy watching.

    really depends on how Rumble progresses.
    if Johnson crushes Lil Nog and say 1-2 more top 10 LHW's, then that match would become very marketable.

    Way to go Captain obvious dipshit! Your post contributed nothing to the discussion. Everyone knows that won't happen after Gus gets the belt anyways.

    DC will show that Jones is one of the greatest fighters ever, but that he's beatable.

    Its about money. Why risk going up and taking more damage and risk losing when you can stay where you're at and dominate ? Why hasn't Aldo gone up yet? People don't seem to understand thdat.

    If JJ beats them two he's pretty much GOAT, only thing left for him would be a rematch with DC or Rashad or Lyoto or a superfights against MW/HW champ then or Silva, then others like Rumble, Davis hell maybe even Lil Nog if he doesn't pull out before the fight

    He should stay at 205 as long as he stays at his current weight. He has a small cut and no problem making weight.
