    I don't see anyone at LHW or below beating Jones. All the top opponents at LHW (apart from Rumble) lost to Jones.
    DC, Gus, Shogun, Rampage, Machida, Vitor Belort
    At heavyweight I see Jones dominating, but it will be exciting as the heavier guys have more power and a higher chance to KO Jones. won't be easy though

    I mean, Jones is -600 against Thiago Santos but if you don't think Santos has a chance, you're crazy. In my mind, he can certainly beat Jon Jones. Not likely but he can win that fight with a big right hand.
    Welchers are the worst.

    Jones wants no part of the HW division....he has always walked around 220+, but stays in LHW for many of reasons. In boxing and MMA you see tough guys go up in weight and take on challenges, but not Jon....he drops weight

    Shogun, Rampage, Machida, and Vitor Belort were finished fighters when they fought Jones and again Jones was much bigger than those guys too
    She acts like everythings normal, while in her mind, she's already gone.

    Jones has been drugged his whole career also....if he wanted the HW division he would have been in it long ago. Overeem, healthy Lewis, Francis, Stipe, Cain, and DC.....Jones wants none of that in HW. In HW, he would lack power and strength....he would get hurt badly

    It used to be funny but it has almost gotten sad how much you feel you have to repeat this.

    This has to be over 200 times I've read this post on this site, easily.

    Hi. Well you are right. It is hard to say who can beat Jones in LHW. I dont know why but I really want to see third fight Jones&Cormier and this time I hope Jones will be clear from any drugs.

    I think the only way to beat Jon Jones is to have someone powerful kick his legs, since legs are his most important weapon.
    Then you need a powerful striker to knock him out.
    He has an iron chin. Crazy

    If Jones moves to heavyweight, I believe that Franic Ngannu will beat him
