I think its going to be a really good fight, but Jones hasnt been in any trouble yet,so who knows how he will react to it. Which is the reason I cant say hes the future, he might be the next Vera.
Jones Walks around and trains at 225+. He wouldn't be jumping 30lbs at all. As a matter of fact he would probably be one the baddest HW we have ever seen in MMA with his athleticism and pure frame weight.
He is 23 if I'm not mistaken and is at a point in his maturity that with VERY little change in diet and strength training can be a bad ass 235-245 lb HW. He mentioned this himself at one point a while back that he may move up at some point in his career. But I merely was pointing out my opinion that for me I see it as inevitable in a couple of years.
