    they always say “long reign” , “someones era”, but to be honest LHW division is most dynamic, no one stays at the top for long….
    but that may not be the case here.

    I think we already know it’s gonna be Rashad.
    He’s not ready to face Anderson just yet, and if Rampage wins his next fight he should be next in line. Even though it would be pretty much one sided.

    Because a lot of people are already talking about this match-up, and I’m giving them an opportunity to speak up their mind?

    Rashad is a waste of a fight. He looks scared – we all know how it’ll end. They need to find someone else, but the question is who? I see Jones being champ for a decade, let Rashad have a go because everyone else will probably fare as well :/

    My choice would be, hands down, Anderson Silva. The rest are either boring/useless or undeserving. Test that man against someone who is actually a complete mixed martial artist, someone he can beat to prove to me and the millions of doubters that he is indeed pound for pound king. (I think Jones will steamroll the Spider.)

    I would say Evans just cause he deserves it for beating Thiago and Rampage but honestly hes going to get smashed…I dont see jones staying at LHW too long, hes 23 and as he gets older n his body grows he wont be able to make the cut, like Reem I see him moving up to HW in like 5 yrs or so

    Its kinda sad for die hard Silva fans but he will probably get smashed just like Shogun. Sonnen was able to beat him up for five round, jones will finish him.

    At this point, I don’t see anyone beating Jon Jones in the Light Heavyweight division for a long time. A.S is the only fighter that might be able to take J”B”J, but that fight will probably never happen since he is not in the LHW Division.

    Jon Jones is BEAST…

    Machida, is prob the worst match up for him…. doesn’t neccessarily mean it will be the worst actual match for him… Just my opinion tho…

    Would be pretty interesting…

    Anderson Silva can strike with Jones no doubt about that but Jones is too strong and to good of a wrestler for Silva and will most likely run through him. I think Hendo would have the best chance if he were in the UFC he has Olympic caliber wrestling and that sick power in in his hands

    Believe it or not Rashad has the best chance in the LHW division in beating him Superior wrestling,Faster,Quicker,Better stand up,and stronger knockout power, with all that said i still think jones will come out the victor!!!

    I agree, AS has the best limbs in the industry for accuracy and skill but Jones would have a good reach advantage and be the bigger guy with wrestling to boot. AS is very slippery though and seems to pull off the fights he is supposed to lose in dramatic fashion. AS if he survived the first 2 or 3 rounds would eat up Jones with his stamina and speed but thats if it goes that far. Jones would be a bad fight for Randy stylistically.

    He should go back and fight that crackhead Jackson and Winklejohn took down but the PR team gave credit to Jones for!

    Jones is a ego swollen p*ss poor champion!

    Jones is a much bigger man but I am still not convinced the Spider will lose this fight. Jones did not seem to have much of a tank left in the 3rd and As can still be very explosive at that point. If he survives the first few of JJ I say he wins it.

    i think i heard some one say (might have been dana) silva doesn’t want to fight at LHW,but that would be a great fight.

    I am a massive silva fan, and I want to see this fight so much. I think Jon jones will actually make silva look stupid, his wrestling and strength are freakishly better than sonnen’s and he has freakish ability just like silva. I think he will dominate 205 for a long time. I wouldn’t rule silva out at all but I just don’t think anyone is in this kids league.

    Rashad is not faster than Jones….. and i seriously “doubt” his wrestling is better. Ive never seen Rashad do what Jones does with opponents in MMA when it comes to wrestling.

    the thing is even when he is not injured anderson has never been that hard to takedown at least by guys with decent wrestling. jones is very dangerous guy to have on top of you he has proved it again and again and would most likely never give anderson the chance to strike. although anderson is a way better striker than jones silva rarely likes to come forward with that huge reach advantage anderson just wouldnt be able to lay back and counter like he normaly does. personaly i believe that LHW has at least 5 guys in it that would hand anderson his ass

    On the feat AS would KO Jones in under three rounds. If if went to the ground I think Jones would be too much for AS.

    I agree. I would actually pick Machida to win that. I think Machida would be able to use his Sumo to keep it standing and pick Jones apart.

    ithe only guy i see having a chance is sonnen, he is the only one that has the tool to beat him and that is his wrestling, not saying he wud win but he cud put jones on his back and keep going for five rounds

    jiu jitsu is the key to beating Jones, any one who stands and trades going to have problems with Jones, quick, and unpredictable punches mix with his crazy reach is a problem, someone with solid jiu jitsu has a better chance, now who in that list has good BJJ..my guess would be AS, but knowing AS spirit he would want to beat jones standing, and thats trouble.. Jones is here to stay as a champion for a long time

    As of right now noone in the devision poses any serious threat to Jones, imao.
    Out of the fighters listed the only one truly skilled enough to beat him would be AS, but I honestly don´t think it´s going to happen.

    I predict we´ll see Jones´ first real “pushed to the limit”-test in a few years when Phil Davis has developed his skills. PD already has the wrestling and the build to match JJ, but he still has a lot to learn.

    Once PD is ready a fight between him and JJ could very well end up taking place in the HW-division.. 1 thing is for sure, the fight will happen eventually and it will be an interesting one..

    because it makes sense… it even makes more sense than the Silva vs GSP fight…. GSP is too small for silva… and matching up Silva vs Jones would be more interesting to see..

    wtf you trippin Silva beating Hendo has nothing to with either of them vs Jones. Yes Silva is P4P the best but Jones’ style and size will be a problem and Silva would end up eating strikes off his back. Now Hendo is a different story yes he lost to Silva but Hendo has the wrestling ability to possibly negate Jones’ wrestling and has power in his hands like nobody jones has ever faced. Styles make fights and MMAth don’t work

    the reason why is silva is 1 of the best pound for pound . all so middleweight champ ! all so i think white should make a pound for pound belt for each weight division .

    i agree he should get rashad i mean it makes sense and also well, he is next in line about him fighting silva i would actually like to see that better than the gsp fight, but let jones defend his title and really dominate his stay in the division. i think silva would be more interested in fighting a reigning champ than a new one and also he would be more confortable fighting at 205

    evans is next and after jones beats him I’d love to see him facing the spider! physically they match up perfect and stylistically too! would be a great fight! I’d prefer silva facing jones instead of GSP…
