    Current HW Bellator Champ - Master Ryan Bader
    Current One HW Champ - Brandon Vera
    Current HW and Former HW Champ DC - Twice
    Current Bellator HW - Rampage Jackson
    Former Bellator HW (Before Retired) - Chael P Sonnen
    Former UFC HW - Vitor Belfort
    Former UFC HW and TUF HW Champ - Rashad Evans
    Former Pride HW Challenger - Shogun Rua
    Former Heros1 HW Champ - Lyoto Machida
    Former UFC HW - Jake OBrien

    Thats a really good list, against other organizations current champs, the former UFC champ - thats a better list than most current ranked UFC HWs

    Hes also defeated some BIG LHWs - Reyes, Santos, Gus, OSP and Glover - who all could be HWs someday

    True. People like to throw out the “fighting MWs” card without acknowledging all of the former/future HWs he also beat.

    haters letting emotions cloud their judgement. Is normal

    You had me until Rampage. Anything after that is just nonsense.

    Prior to UFC 182: January 3, 2015 - Jon's testosterone/epitestosterone (T/E) ratio was considered by some experts to be alarmingly low. Word of the “hiding under the cage” incident spreads.

    Fail 1 : January 6, 2015 - Coke
    Fail 2: July 8, 2016 - clomiphene and letrozole (1-year suspension but noted that may have been contamination)
    Fail 3: August 22, 2017 - Turinabol (15-month suspension)
    Fail 4: December 23, 2018 - Turinabol long term metabolite M3. (No punishment because USADA decided it was from 2017 use. Can't punish for same violation twice.)

    One study estimated the detection window of M3 as 40–50 days: Detection and mass spectrometric characterization of novellong-term dehydrochloromethyltestosterone metabolites in human urine - Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

    It’s extremely likely he was using Turinabol in October 2018.

    Do you work on a farm? Cause you are excellent at cherry picking. Truth be told, Jones has ZERO fights or wins at HW, until he gets courage up to get smashed by Stipe by a current, active, REAL HW.

    One of those fighters listed weighs in at more than 230 pounds. Everyone else is a MW/LHW that doesn't want to cut weight any more at the end of their career.

    Joe Riggs has wins at HW... doesn't make him any less of a WW fighter.

    Jones fights at LHW and has only fought other LHWs... and there's nothing wrong with that.

    When its convenient Jones already fought HWs even though they weren't HWs when he fought them

    But when it's a convenient time to bash Fedor he got KOd by a MW Hendo even though Hendo was a HW in that fight

    Fucking chumps I spit on you

    This is stupid. Fighting somebody who stepped up to fight at HW doesn't make you fighting HW.

    Sakuraba, Kaoklai and Gegard are three fighters who have fought at HW. How does beating any of them mean you have beaten a HW?
