Good.

LHW is mostly cleaned out.

After Hendo, maybe Machida 2, and maybe Gustafson there isn't anything left.

Plus he's just to big. Part of the reason his fights aren't competitive is because of his massive physical advantages.

Or maybe as early as September 2nd after Hendo removes the burden of the belt from him and then has the good graces to escort him out of the division.

You know if he loses at 205 he'll blame the weight cut.

Jones is a talented kid, but he's taking on a man, and I'd bet on the man any day of the week.


Pro's Pick: Dan Henderson (the Man) TKO - - rd 2

If I got my head knocked into the cheap seats where the guys that train UFC are always brawling, yeah, I would move up to HW....it won't be two years from now, it will be after Hendo kicks him out of OUR division.

Can you believe that Jon blocked me on Twitter

I know its these interviewers that ask the questions but it seems Jones is thinking about everything BUT Hendo. Normally when questions arise that don't pertain to your current opponent you brush them aside

it will be easy for him to put on weight, all he has to do is workout his legs, dude is called bones for reason... chicken legs

i know he said he wants to beat tito's record 1st, but like others say he is answering all these question instead of saying not thinking bout that until I'm done with hendo

H-BOMB!!!!!!!!

this argument can be made for your favourite fighter too
