    Jones is really delusional if he thinks he can box with any Top 20 pro boxer, let alone Klitschko.
    Gustafsson landed tons of shots, imagine what a pro boxer would do to him.

    Maybe he was beating some sparring partners and was doing doing a very good job hitting pads, his coaches were telling him that he had the level of a professional high level boxer and he believed that BS so he claimed that he would like to box against the Klitschkos LOL

    Joe Rogan: Jon Jones is ‘kidding himself’ if he thinks he can box with Wladimir Klitschko
    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/9/24/47...hko-boxing-mma
    And when asked by TMZ if "Bones" would have a remote chance against the current WBA, IBO, WBO, IBF and The Ring Heavyweight Champion, Rogan was as blunt as he could be.

    His answer:

    "No, no, no. I think anybody who thinks they can box with one of the very best boxers the heavyweight division has ever seen, without being just a professional boxer for a long period of time, is kind of kidding themselves, or is just the type of person who is a real achiever who likes to set very, very high goals for himself and like maybe have a milestone that he likes to put up there as a possible thing he can have his ambitions set on. But, I don't think it's a good idea. Wladimir Klitschko hasn't lost in a decade and he's been fighting all of the best heavyweight boxers in the world."

    If Jones boxed a Klitschko, he would never get an acting job because his face would be pounded into hamburger. It's one thing to try your hand at boxing, but to challenge an elite HW boxer, the greatest of this recent era anyway, is just crazy. It's not the same as Anderson challenging a washed-up Roy Jones. Silva has actually boxed a few times, and has over 40 muay thai/kickboxing matches.

    Exactly.

    His real talent is his wrestling. Everything else is a benefit off his size and/or his wrestling. I've said it many time and I'll say it again. He will not make Top 5 at HW, hell maybe not even top 10.

    Somebody like Lavar Johnson would of gave him problems imo because he doesn't deal well with opponents coming at him (I.E. running from Rampage once in range)

    Jones has been doing a crazy amount of media this week(rather poorly in my estimation) and has said more than a few doofus comments(the CJ Ross paid/on drugs comment was dumb), so this this doesn't break the top 3. His appearance on SportsNation the other day made him look like a smug prick and couple that with his comments towards potential upcoming challengers(Cormier, Glover) and Goose, he's been so aloof and dismissive, as though he wasn't going to even remotely try to sell the fight and possible future fights.

    Jones is the main face of mainstream MMA going forward, but he hasn't done nearly enough to entice mainstream, casual fans to buy his PPV main event. Go back and watch a couple of his interviews, he's like, "Yeah, Gustufsson's big and I've heard all the stuff about his striking, but he's only beaten one top ten". Wow, that'll really make people want to buy the PPV to see a guy fight Jones, who already has minimal exposure, with Jones' nonchalant attitude. I'm not saying he has to go into super kayfabe Chael mode to hype a fight, but a little media training to at least make the fight sound interesting and worthy of purchasing isn't too much to ask.

    I'm neither a Jones fan or hater, but I haven't been impressed with him this week.

    Forget the Klitchko's, Jones couldnt win a boxing match against either Nog brother.

    Going to ignore the boxing aspirations and go right to the stick and move comment...

    ...that statement came from a guy who practically sprints across the cage when hes in any remote danger. The same guy who stays outside of the pocket and keeps moving...

    I have no problem with defensive styles but Jones criticizing someone who uses almost the same style as him for using it is even more ridiculous than his desire to box.
