It's very possible that Corey Anderson could beat this version of Jones now.

    He has the wrestling to stay on his feet. He lacks power but he's not bad with his hands. Most importantly, he has the cardio to stay active for five rounds.

    Tough to say, He doesn't have the physical attributes to match up with Jon, you gotta have similar size and reach to give him problems, Santos and DC took the fight to Jones despite being smaller yes, but they still struggled to get in range and cut him off effectively like Reyes was doing.

    If anything Reyes needs to fight Santos or the winner of Jan/Anderson and than get right back into it.

    I think Corey can put up a decent fight. If he can maintain cardio for 5 rounds he's got a shot.

    Corey Anderson sucks, there aren't really any interesting fights for him at lhw now except rematches with Santos or Reyes. Maybe Oezdemir and Rakic down the line could be interesting but Anderson just has nothing for Jones

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Jones out wrestled and taken down himself. His wrestling really isn't shit anymore.
