    Jones has already beaten:
    1 Alexander Gustafsson (4-1 last 5 fights)
    3 Rashad Evans (3-2 in last 5 fights)
    4 Glover Teixeira (4-1 in last 5 fights) *coming off loss to Jones
    8 Mauricio Rua (3-5 since fighting Jone)
    9 Ryan Bader (4-4 since fighting Jones)
    10 Chael Sonnen (2-3in last 5 fights)* fought for LHW title while unranked

    He hasn't fought:
    2 Daniel Cormier (Undefeated, only 2 fights at 205)
    5 Anthony Johnson (6-0 in last 5 fights/only 1 UFC win @205
    6 Phil Davis (3-1-1 in last 5 fights) *coming off a loss
    7 Dan Henderson (1-4 in last 5 fights)

    So who should Jones fight while Cormier is shelved?

    Discuss.

    If Cormier is on the shelf, anyone other than Gus would be a disappointment

    Me!

    I've been training UFC for about 5 months now, think I would stand a good chance. Plus my arms are a lot bigger then his, he's actually pretty skinny.

    he should fight who ever the UFC tells him to fight. In no way he can have a say in who he should face next.

    if anyone if dc is out gus makes sense.

    Gus is the only one that makes sense if DC can't go. I'd really like to see JJ fight DC and Gus have to fight someone like Rashad, or Rumble (when Nog pulls out). I know everyone thinks Gus deserves a rematch, but if they wait until say end of the year or for the Superbowl weekend card, the buy rate would be double. This assumes that JJ would get by DC and Gus would win his matchup, which I think they would.

    Gus > DC > AJ > PD

    That is the order. No discussion needed.

    Fedor thinks women should be domestic goddesses and not fight, so you are out.

    Hamill already beat Jones, and was only fighting at 70%, why bother with a rematch?

    Don't be too hard on yourself. If it's any consolation I enjoyed both Barista related jokes.

    Sounds like the Cain Velasquez career plan.
