In response to ma6dragon9's comment:
I'll take Bones in any fight, against any fighter of any weight. He's getting BETTER! This KID taught himself how to fight by watching youtube, and has DESTROYED some very elite fighters. To say anyone would crush him is flatly ignorant. He's beat olympic wrestlers, BJJ black belts, and maybe the most renowned karate fighter in the world (Machida). Again...with a background of YOUTUBE!
He took Matt Hamill, a VERY accomplished wrestler, and threw (literally, THREW) him to the ground so hard he seperated his (Hamill) shoulder.
Not only does he destroy these guys, he does it in short order.
I bet you thought Lesnar would be champ for a long time too. He outweighed Cain by a good 40 lbs. About hom much Cain or Dos Santos outweighs Bones by. How'd speed work out?
I would've liked to see an Anderson Silva/Jones fight when Silva was 5 years younger...but suck is life. It will be a long time before anyone challenges Jones, he's totally cleaned out the entire weight class.
He has dominated against guys about half his size. Dos Santos is just as big as Jones and MUCH better hands. IF Jones could manage to take him down Junior would probably be able to get back to his feet. Right now probably an easy win for Junior.
Cain vs. Jones would just be a crime scene with Cain winning. Cain has just destroyed Heavyweights until Dos Santos.
Cormier has Olympic level wrestiing and faster hands. He might actually go to LHW if Cain beats Dos Santos( Cain is a teamate). Dana said he would get an immediate title shot then.
Overeem is a freak and hasnt been really tested im mma since he has gotten huge.
Matt Hamill or any of the light heavywieghts wouldnt do any better against these guys as he did against Jones.
The key to the Lesnar/Cain fight was Cains ability to scramble to his feet after Lesnars takedowns. Overall Cain was a much more well rounded fighter and it showed. I personally was never high on Lesnar.
Dana even said a few months back about Jones moving to HW "he could, but he wouldnt be happy, Dos Santos has bombs in both hands. its a whole new level"
Imo maybe eventually but not now.
