    Jon Jones did confirm that one day he'll move up to HW and will go straight for the HW strap. That's when Anthony Johnson comes in and Jones could possibly defend his HW title against him.

    What do you guys think? They were supposed to fight in 2015 but at HW would be fucking awesome.

    Vs this beast, Anthony Johnson who is 285lbs.

    Jones would need to go up a weightclass for that to happen.

    And rumble to return to fighting.

    No, Jon moves up only if Brock wins, for a super fight, otherwise he has a couple of fighters coming up in LHW to challenge him......

    Anthony needs to get 'clean' and get in the testing pool........ First.

    Are you serious? He confirmed his HW days are inevitable. He will go for the HW strap and defend it. His fans are pressuring him and his coaches support the idea.

    He loves to fight Brock because he wants the money, same way as DC. We could possibly see him defend his HW title against Anthony Johnson.

    Pride rules, no drug testing, and let 'em have it at openweight. We'd be in for a hell of a fight.

    Rumble is a far more potent threat than the lumbering no cardio power punchers that litter HW. He’d have the fastest hands in the division, most explosiveness, and far quicker movement tracking down his foe. LHW’s have always slaughtered HW’s.

    Jones by 4th round TKO

    Rumble gassed out at welterweight. You actually think he’ll catch Jones with a slow telegraphed haymaker at heavyweight?

    Actual first fight that someone wins 9.5 out of ten matchups. Rumble doesn’t have a fucking chance

    Rumble beat A. Arlovski at heavyweight (not in the UFC) but still I get what you are saying.

    Jones was so shook by Rumble that he was doing mad drugs and crashing into pregnant ladies. No way he wants that fight, especially not at Heavyweight.

    Rumble is approaching maximum density.

    That would be an interesting fight... Rumble is going to have to get himself in shape though. He looks like a roided out powerlifter.
    I think there are better fights to make right now, but who knows. Seems like everyone has a hard-on for a trilogy fight between JJ and DC, which is beyond my understanding. In fairness, I think Rumble would need at least one fight at HW to prove himself... the guy has been away from the sport for years, and clearly hasn't been in the USADA testing pool.
