    What do you think? If he ever moves up to HW to take Cain's belt.

    Hard to say

    On one hand, Junior has everything you'd like to have to beat Jones...amazing TDD, height, decent reach, great boxing, disgusting power, bigger/stronger

    On the other hand, who is better suited to take advantage of a predictable opponent like Junior than the most versatile fighter in UFC history?(with Greg Jackson in his corner no less)

    Its a tough one.

    If Jones could avoid JDS power shots, maybe

    Easier said then done

    Jones should defend his belt Ten times. Then take the HW strap, defend it 5 times then retire. Easily attainable

    JDS would be one of the easier opponents for Jones in the top of the HW division.

    JDS looked bad against Stipe... I mean he beat a great fighter but he has looked better in the past.

    JBJ would have his hands full if he goes to HW... JDS, Stipe, Overeem, Cain, Werdum... no joke there.

    JJ should immediately go up to HW and constantly troll Cain until he actually gets the match-up. And then beat him.

    He would absolutely decimate him.

    Nope. One solid punch from JDS and Jones goes to sleep.

    Yes.

    JDS has worst cardio than DC.

    "could"

    I seriously doubt it though. JDS by KO.

    Maybe, but would Jones be able to eat as many uppercuts from Junior like he did against DC before the last 2 rounds where it got one sided?

    Only Cain can potentially stop Jones from being a two-div titleholder...and I still think Jones beats Cain 3/5.

    jones needs to rematch Gus. Fight Rumble, then he can take the HW belt from Cain, tool Werdum (probably by submission), KO JDS, walk thru Browne, then beat a couple former HW champ favorites who are coming off non-top 15 HW wins like vs a frank Mir or Arlovski after he cleared out the HW division. Then Jones can retire as GOAT.

    stylistically it's winnable for Jones. JDS can't get off the cage to save his life...

    Very possible JJ can eat those shots.

    JDS from last fight would get his ass kicked.

    JDS from the mark hunt fight & previous with good movement has a 25% chance.
