    Of course I think he CAN.
    I also think Stipe can beat Jones also.

    I think he has the ability to but its pretty much a 50/50 fight. You cant say that about Jones fights very often.

    He's beating the next Gen guys, milking his LHW dominance some more, making good money in the process, and resestablishing his career after the last drugs bust. (Plus, he's still young in comparison, and it doesnt hurt to wait out a few HW prime years some more).

    Jones is conducting his career like a business.

    Business is good right now, and he'll get to HW in good time - if he ever does - there's no rush.

    My guess is he'll beat 1 or 2 more LHW contenders before moving up if he ever does.

    How zat?

    I called this the other day in that I believe he sees vulnerabilities in Stipe.

    But in all fairness, Jones changes his mind on this every week, and we've been talking about this since Cain's peak, which seems like a lifetime ago.

    He'll try and move up if DC wins, otherwise not.

    I think he could. I don't think he would.

    Funny how he's acting like he wants and already won the fight for years by now but still hasn't managed to sign the dotted line or even move up.

    Stipe will pick you over DC 100%, Jon. So why don't you just do it instead of talking about it year in year out?

    Jones vs Cain
    Jones Lesnar
    Jones vs Miocic
    Jones vs Werdum
    Jones vs DC

    All fights that have been speculated to happen in the HW and there has been nothing to show, ever.

    Jones talking about HW is obviously just a marketing ploy by him to keep interest up. I'm fairly convinced that he's never planning to move up.

    Stipe would KO Jones, imo.

    Jones is a better fighter than Stipe, who got KO'd by DC and Struve. Technically it isn't close. Boxing is the one area where Stipe's better, and he's got more punching power. Yet Stipe's hittable, even vulnerable to volume, not only single shots. Overall striking goes to JJ, as do other areas.

    That HW title shot has been sitting on his plate for a decade, so I'm not sure how much he really wants it.
