Thats is for those 2 HW, hell thier are guys in the HW division that on fight day are like 275-280.
Jones is talented, but right now at LHW, he has an advanatge over most...he gives that up IF he goes up to HW
JDS is like 230, about what Jones would be if he was in shape and didn't cut. Cain is about 250, but he's not a lean guy. Jones really wouldn't be that small, the only guy who would be significantly bigger than him would be Overeem, but he would still be the longer fighter.
But, Jones already seems to lack power at 205. I think a fight with JDS would probably be pretty boring as they would try to pick at each other from the outside. I think he would finish the guys outside of the top 3 easily (except for Nelson), since they mostly seem to fade quickly in a tough fight.
