    He ain’t gonna be successful against any of the top guys.
    For example, manuwa would give him extreme hell but thankfully for Chris he’s retired
    Gus would twat him up

    How’s Latifi for some fun?
    D.C. would bury his head in the octagon floor

    wonder what the additional weight will do to his speed. 20lbs of fighting weight! it's an enormous leap. these weight classes will evolve lol

    I’m a big Chris fan, but I just think his best days are behind him. He had a high peak and will go down in the history books, but I just don’t see him having a career resurgence against these bigger guys after batting injuries and taking some real damage at MW. I hope I’m wrong

    It's a shallow division. Weidman and Rockhold could easily be the #1 and #2 ranked guys within a year.

    But Jones isn't leaving and neither one of those guys has anything for Jones.

    I don't see Weidman ever returning to the top level. Jones would destroy him

    I agree 100% that he has no chance against Jones but he could easily make it to the top five of the light heavyweight division right now.

    Ffs the top two guys after Jonny are former middleweights

    By who?

    LHW is a potato farm and he has the size. Jones would obviously push his shit in but I would favour him over pretty much anyone else.

    You guys may not be giving him enough credit.
    I think he knows his best days are behind him but knows there is more money at 205, win or lose.
