    I think it’s obvious DC is Jon’s best win, but other than that is his resume that impressive? I would personally say Shogun and Glover are his next best. Even if you count Thiago as a win, Thiago was soon after humiliated by Glover. Gustaffson and Reyes are good fighters but Jon made them look probably better than they actually are, I don’t think Gustaffson has won a fight in many years.

    Rashad was a massive win, at the time he was better than everyone else at 205.

    DC, Gustafsson, Glover, Rampage, Shogun, Machida, Bader, Vitor, Rashad. Say what you want about Jones, but his resume is insane

    Because of where they were in their careers, i rare his win over Bader pretty highly. Rampage too.

    Rampage was in so good shape for that fight. He looked pretty good too defensively. Bones still outclassed him.

    That was one of Bones more dirtiest fights tho. Eye pokes galore

    Idk i think Shogun was always a bad matchup for Rashad and would've beaten him at any point in their careers.

    It sucks cause he's basically retired at this stage of his career. UFC is to dumb to pay what he's deserving so ya.

    Rampage was in good shape physically, but more or less a pure head hunter at this point.
    His footwork also consisted solely of plodding and/or moving forward or backwards in straight lines, making it very easy for Jones to kick the shit out of Rampage's knees.

    Not being permanently banned from the sport due to ped use was pretty huge.

    But, avoiding fighting Ngannou is likely his biggest win.

    He beat jail.
    That was impressive, had some close calls.
    Jones beat a ton of contenders when he started off. Rashad and Quinton weren't jokes. He had a tough run in the beginning and went through some old champs. Even Ryan "The Master" Bader was a big win, they were both undefeated at the time.

    Jon messed up Page’s knee in the first.. It’s a shame too. Rampage could have been the one to land!!

    Gustafsson easily almost the same size as the champion, a young assassin and was at his physical peak and 100% confident.

    Rampage - UFC Champion
    Machida - UFC Champion
    DC - Olympic Wrestler and Champion in 2 category.
    TRT invencible Vitor - UFC Champion
    Rashad - UFC Champion

    if LHW is so easy why are many fighters killing themselves cutting weight?

    Anderson, Romero, Paulo Costa have always cut weight to get away from Jones.

    Izzy tried to fight in LHW and was humiliated by a "Old Man".
