It's time the UFC adds more talent to the LHW division just to keep Jon Bones interested

    Jones doesn't have an opponent scheduled yet. I'm sure Uncle Dana would pay Jones handsomely to fight DC one more time. I get why Jones doesn't have an opponent right now, he's cleared out the LHW division once again. He beat Santos and Lionheart. Next challengers up are Dominic Reyes and Jan Blachowicz but nearly deserve a title fight yet. There's nobody at MW that could move up and get a title shot. Although I'd love to see Yoel Romero try a move up. Chris Weidman makes sense but he'd need a few wins before a title shot. Jones simply is running out of opponents. I think the UFC should think about buying out Ryan Bader from Bellator. Jones has submitted Bader once before, but Bader is much, much better now.

    LHW used to be the best division, filled with the sport's biggest names (Ortiz, Liddell, Rampage, Shogun, Wanderlei, Machida, Franklin, Evans, DC, Vitor, Lil Nog etc.)

    If UFC actually put some effort into building entire divisions instead of just throwing shit at the wall and running with whoever sticks, this wouldn't be a problem. They're completely unprepared for an active champion.

    Who else is avaialble? Yoel and Jones train together so probably wouldn't want to fight and besides that it's just Bader and like you mentioned, Jones beat him fairly easily and Jones has only got better since then.

    LHW has several promising up and comers that just aren't ready for Jones yet.

    Rakic, Johnny Walker, Rountree, Oleksiejczuk, Spann.

    Which HWs could make the move down? Obviously DC, but who else would you be interested in seeing Bones fight?

    It’s time for Jon to stop trolling us and move up to heavyweight. He’s going to wait for DC to officially retire for good, then move up.
