Rashad evans fought at HW IN TUF!!! Seriously that's just embarrising to even bring that up. He fought twice, once against Jardine who is also a LHW and Brad Imes, who fucking sucks.

I don't see how people think Jones would do so bad at HW when he's manhandled everybody at LHW. Nobody has really given him a war yet, he's just steamrolled through the division. I think he could easily become a Top 5 HW. If he bulked up to around 240, his wrestling would destroy almost everybody in that division, and his ground and pound would rip up guys like Mir and Struve. When it comes to fighting guys like Cain, Overeem, and JDS...well that would be the real test and I'd give at least 2 of those guys the advantage in a fight, but to act like Jones wouldn't get past guys like Herman is just retarded. The kid is a stud and is only 24. By the time he's 26-28, he's going to be that much better, and that much bigger, and he would tear the HW division up. He stilla growin boi!

Laughing is just a sign that you have nothing intelligent to say. Ok so you disagree with me? Cool. Doesn't make you right.
All I'm saying is...there's not a huge difference when it comes to weight, when speaking about Jones. He's already a big guy with good technique and awesome wrestling. Bulking up about 20 pounds wouldn't be a problem for him.Manhandling guys who would get murdered at HW is supposed to prove what?
He didn't have much trouble with these guys. Maybe if the fights were super competitive I'd agree with you...but he's steamrolled almost everybody with minimum hassle. Yet you're going to completely discredit him for that, just because it's LHW? Which was the strongest division in the UFC until recently.Only 1 guy in the top 5 (werdume) jones would be able to outwrestle.
Ok...this is completely opinion based. You have nothing that actually proves this; it's just an opinion. There is not a single person who has been able to outgrapple him, and he's been in there with world-class wrestlers and BJJ specialists. You think 25 pounds suddenly makes people better grapplers than the likes of Rashad, Shogun, and Machida? Here's a little bit of advice here buddy...weight doesn't make you a better fighter. The only issue here with some credence to it is KO power and Jones' chin, not grappling. Weight gives you more mass, which puts more PSI at the end of your punches. But weight DOES NOT make you more technically proficient and explosive on the ground
If anything, it makes you slower.JDS, Reem and Cain would bend jones over and ass fuck him
Ok once again...you're just stating an opinion and your position, and acting like this somehow proves you right. "Jones would lose because Jones would lose" is all you're saying, and it does nothing to help your argument. On second thought...let me try that
Jones would ass fuck JDS, Reem, and Cain. Am I right yet?
So Yes, laughing at you did make me right
Yeah...no it didn't. You're way to sure of your opinions.
