    {<jordan} Or maybe it was just a good fight that was really competitive and he feels he has something to prove now.

    The same guy Reyes beat a year ago... and lost to DC and Smith before that. Nah I don't think so

    Wouldn't be a worse fight than Jones vs Corey or Jan

    Rakic would be the bigger threat to Jones, imo.

    Jon has rematches already set with Reyes & presumably a recovered Santos. Volkan can smash the winner of Corey/ Jan & then get his shot. but even this inferior version of Jones curbstomps him.

    Volkan lost to DC, Reyes and Smith. Jones won from all 3 of them.

    It was a close fight where Reyes won rounds 2 and 3.

    I think you're right it's unfortunate that he got a bad decision vs volkan because he's going to need 3-4 wins for anyone to take him as contender and who know if jones is still fighting by then.
    Striking wise Reyes, volkan and Rakic all seem pretty equal and can beat jones in a pure standing fight.
    Wrestling though Rakic is much better, Reyes has good tdd though, and Valkan isn't good.

    This is correct

    Rakic would retire Jones

    Rakic is also as tall as Reyes and has the same reach, which I think makes things interesting.

    So he's taking the easier fight, that is the one against the guy who was inches away from taking his title?

    I like Volkan, but he's is a weird place. I thought he beat Reyes, but I thought Rakic beat him. He did fight well in both fights though, so there's still clearly some logs left in the fire. He's ranked #8 now, so maybe match him up with Gus if he returns? That would be a good fight.

    Volkan doesn't have the footwork or tdd to beat Jones.
