    Stipe rematch: eliminates all doubts that the first fight was a fluke or due to the eye poke. He would be 2-0 over the man with most ufc HW title defense.

    Jones 3: he would finally have a win over the goat who made him cry twice

    Ngannou: he gets revenge over the man who made his teammate look silly in under a minute. (The same teammate who DC claims is better than himself)

    A win over Jones puts him at GOAT status 1-1-1

    Nothing comes close

    Jones is the only fight that matters. Stipe was not a fluke and none of his fights are ever mentioned up there in the really "big" moments in the UFC. He would just become another statistic after a period of a few years.

    I don't think anyone except him cares they Ngannou beat up his buddy

    Beating the guy they beat him twice is the only possible legacy adding fight left in his career

    Nobody has legitimately beaten Jon Jones and he's the greatest mix martial artist to ever exist. If you beat Jones, you're automatically a GOAT. Plus, Jones is winning 2-0 against DC. Stipe wasn't a fluke, he just got out skilled and outperformed by a better fighter. If they do a rematch, DC will destroy Stipe again very easily. Taking revenge for his teammate (Cain) would be an honourable thing to do. However, DC elite wrestling, granite chin and insane cardio gives him the edge against Ngannou.

    DC only way to redeem himself is by avenging his losses against Jon Jones. He gains nothing by beating Stipe or Ngannou and we all know DC outclasses them both.

    If he beat Jones the people calling him the GOAT would have a real credible argument. Especially if he stopped him. Itd be hard to deny. Especially given DCs age. And it would be one of the greatest sports stories of all time

    Without a shadow of doubt, a victory over Jones is THE ONLY way for DC to cement his legacy. He has nothing to prove by fighting the other 2. He already knocked Miocic out in devastating fashion, and he would be a big favorite to beat Ngannou, so nothing really to gain. A career ending victory over Jones, and DC will have a smile on his face for the rest of his life!<45>

    Dumbass question to be honest. Brock, a giant WWE wrestler that won a belt but his skill set is still very low or... beating the GOAT Jones. Hmmm

    He fights Jones, then Brock runs into the Octagon, they put aside their differences and take on Brock together.

    Jones. The only guy who beat him. If he could avenge that loss it would be huge for him.

    JJ, easy. I'm so relieved you didn't include Brock in your list of options.

    Jones, and it ain't even close. The first man to beat Jones, and possibly the GOAT of MMA at this current stage.

    This guy gets it.

    And during one exchange when Brock has Jones against the fence, DC accidentally clotheslines both of them knocking them both out and causing guest referee Stipe to call the fight. Lesnar wakes up and calls Stipe a "piece of shit" which sets up a Ladder match for the disputed HW strap at UFC 300.
