he would actually get paid more as hw. its that simple n ppl need to realize this. fighting is his job 1st n foremost n his goal is to get best deal possible. right now fighting as lhw is best for jones. he can easily make the weight n thats where hes gonna make the most $$$ (outside of cain fight or course) if ufc wanst jones (or any other fighter) to move up, they should give monetary incentives. the highest paid weight class should be hw, then lhw, then mw, n so on. this way fighters will stop playing the "weight cutting game" n would fight at highest weight class possible.
