    this is a journey i would rather crap all over.

    Future G.O.A.T. Right there!

  3. Shadleigh says:

    When Jones moves up to heavyweight he will lose some fights! He will still be an elite fighter, but JDS, Cain, and Overeem could all beat him. There are a few other HW that could possibly beat him as well. He will still have a reach advantage at HW, but not as significant of one. He won’t be throwing around and man handling opponents at HW like he does at LHW. The HW division is gonna be more difficult for Jones than I think he anticipates.

  4. Bitch ass Greg J says:

    This was before Jones started looking at fighting as a business.

  5. Jpeech says:

    If Jones goes to heavy weight I think he knows it will be for good. He will need to add on muscle so he can hang with all the stronger guys. I think if he does that he will still crush his opponents……..and I don’t even like Jones….

  6. HipHop Harry says:

    His chicken legs will be cut out from beneath him by the likes of Cain, Overeem etc at heavyweight.
