Not too long ago, Jon Jones said he would be fighting at heavyweight by 2014 – but the UFC light heavyweight champ said that’s no longer the case.

Plenty of challenges? I know of 3: Glover; who he fights this weekend, Gustaffsson; who absolutely deserves a rematch that will be to the delight of the fans, and Cormier; who should be getting a shot after another fight or two at absolute most. I could still see him moving up to HW in 2015.

Good. Focus on LHW right now. You got Glover, Gus, and Cormier. After them you got Davis and possibly Rumble if he flattens Davis, and that's a pretty big if.

Sounds like GSP shortly after he won the title. He did an interview saying he was young and still growing, and that he would move up to MW and eventually to LHW.

He later changed his mind.

Rule #1: Dominant champions don't change divisions.

He's got 3 more guys to beat before he can move up.

By the time he beats those 3 guys there will be 3 new guys we want him to fight.

There's no such thing as cleaning out a division.

Absolutely, bjj1605. Most people just don't seem to get that.
