    JDS's is same height but gives up some reach that I think would be negated as fast as JDS moves in and out.
    +JDS better striker
    +JDS will just pop back up if Jones is even able to take him down.
    Worst possible matchup for Jones.

    Agreed.

    Styles make fights and thats one fight Jon definitely doesnt want nor should he. Going up against a 'smaller/stronger' guy could make sense where as a 'bigger/stronger' guy would prove to be too much.

    Not until JDS develops a clinch that has substance.

    They made the 265lb weight limit to keep Bob Sapp out of the UFC.

    I agree TS. I think JDS would have a good chance at KOing Jones. However, Jones clinch and wall tactics might get the better of JDS as well.
    Anyway I'd like to see that fight.

    Don't get me wrong I love watching JDS compete, but have you ever seen him fight? He moves in straight lines, walks down his opponent and utilises a big power game.

    He has some crisp boxing but he doesn't have very crisp movement to go along with it. I think this is a fight that Jon can control. He can dictate where the fight takes place and he can dictate the pace.

    Outside a big bomb in the first few rounds I can't see JDS winning.

    Are we talking about the current slow, plodding, zero defense JDS?

    At this point Arlvoski would be tougher fight for Jones, as jones doesn't have the sort of power that gives AA trouble, and current AA is better than JDS everywhere besides chin.

    Very true. Jones probably look to get him to the fence and clinch him and hit him with knees and elbows or something. IF he looks like the JDS who beat cain, I will give him the W. But the JDS that showed up against miocic, he will gas and probably look to win within the 1st round against jones.

    He used to be. He's become rather sluggish after his wars with Cain. Doesn't have the same swift lethalness he used to possess.
    Sorry to say I feel JDS is a shell of his former self. I think Jones wins rather handily.
    Hate to bring in the whole prime talk, but JDS in his prime is quite the challenge for Jones.
    Not anymore.

    Cain never ragdolled anyone in his career. DC's wrestling is better than Cain's and their striking is around the same power. The only thing Cain has going for him against DC is cardio.
