This was tough to pick against Jones but like fullerene said if JDS gets past Cain and The Reem, I just don't see him losing with the lack of competition in the future. The HW division only has 28 fighters on their roster.
I wanted to say GSP but WW has a lot of competition w/Condit, Hendricks, Kampmann, Diaz, Ellenberger, etc. and that'll be a tough run for any WW.
This was 100% my line of thinking as well. I see Jones and Aldo potentially vacating within the next 2 years. Jones because the division will be empty and Aldo because his kidneys won't allow the cut anymore. Silva is getting up there in age, Bendo has some serious competition and I don't think he is as far ahead of his competition as the other champs. MM could lose on any given day, as the difference between the top 4 in that division is minimal. Cruz would have been a good choice, but with Barao and his kicking along with an acl injury for Cruz, he may not win his next fight. GSP would be my second pick.
