I think Cain takes 9 out of 10 right now.
Jones relies on his size advantage at this point, he's got pretty big holes in his striking that Cain would exploit, and I Cain's skillset and size/strength advantages are going to let him control him grappling.
Also, Jones has the type of body that will be had to put on a lot of muscle. He is so lanky that putting on 30 pounds of muscle will be nearly impossible. He should just focus on LHW and never consider going to HW.
I'm not sure about that. I've heard he's walking around precamp at about 230, I can see him putting on 10lbs of muscle and being a solid 235 HW in 5 years. He's focusing on staying lean to keep a ridiculous size advantage at LHW right now, but I could see that shifting pretty simply.

Unless he starts hitting the needle, I don't see that as a probability. I don't think AO would look like AO without chemical assistance. I could easily see him somewhere around Kongo's profile in 5 years, though. Hopefully, he continues to develop and works to close the holes in his game as he grows up, fills out and slows down...there are just too many fighters who can end things with the smallest mistake at HW.
