    besides Jon Jones! What matchups would you want to make between light heavies and heavyweights?

    I think Rashad vs JDS would be an awesome match because of the boxing skills they both posses.

    Would the bomb which Rashad landed on Chuck also KO JDS?

    Yes, Chuck was past his prime....BUT...it was such a huge punch.

    Opinions?

    I think Glover's skillset would be more effective at HW

    I don't know why a lot of lhws dont move to hw, They would enjoy a speed advantage. Look at what cormier did to all those huge 260 pounders. I think a lot could move up and beat a lot of hws outside the top 5. Cain is a beast though and would destroy them , so I understand they want a title
