    Seriously, the guy has nothing left to prove in his division and is a natural heavyweight anyway. This fight is legacy, this fight is way more money, this belt is way more prestige... there are so many reasons he should be asking for it, you know Stipe would take the fight in a heartbeat, yet jon shows no interest and remains in his stagnant division.

    WHY?

    Because he's afraid he would lose. He's sparred with HWs and it doesn't seem like he feels good about how that went. He also can't roid as openly and appears to be nearing the end of his prime. I mean would you want to fight stipe or Francis if you struggled with one legged Santos?

    Because he won't be able to bully HWs in the clinch and his length advantage will be nullified

    Simple : Scared of losing.

    Cormier, at 5'9.5"goes and fights boatloads of HW fights.... but Jones at 6'4"........ he like "nah fuck that.....I might lose".

    To borrow a current in-the-news phrase...... .......#JonJonesPAB

    Maybe he doesn't think he would win against top HW's. Anderson Silva never seriously made a run at LHW, and GSP didn't want to move up to fight Silva at MW either. If you don't have confidence in winning, you probably won't win.

    At least GSP fought Bisping. I’d be happy to see Jones vs Black Beast or even Alexei Oleinik.

    How exactly do you define "natural heavyweight"? Jones weighs something like 220-225 on fight night. As in, less than literally every heavyweight on the roster, and about at or below what most LHWs fight at. He also cuts less weight than guys way smaller than him, including plenty of featherweights, bantamweights, and so on. (Compare Jones going from 220 to 205 with Dillashaw going from 155 to 125 - Jones is NOT a big weight cutter.)

    So please, provide some evidence that Jones is a natural heavyweight beyond "well uh his arms are really long."
