I mean Jones would have the reach and height advantage over Cain, but the aggressive striking would be Jones biggest challenge, as we've yet to really see his chin tested against a top striker*. That's not to say he hasn't been up against a top striker, but just I've never seen him rocked and recovered from a punch from one of them.
I don't know how big Jones would weigh in though at HW, as I can't imagine him passing 240lbs...
I think he'd struggle with the larger HW's vets like Frank Mir.
Interesting future Jones has ahead of him. Its great to have a prospect like him in the UFC.
You think he'd take it to Cain but struggle against a "larger HW" like Frank Mir? Thats a pretty bold claim man I don't see how you can honestly think that.
First of all Cain is a much better wrestler than Frank Mir and is also stronger in my opinion. Frank put on a lot of mass in a short period of time. Cain has been as big as he is now for a while and has really gotten used to his frame and his fight style compliments it well. Frank got manhandled by Carwin who couldn't do shit to JDS. Frank looks slower staning up in my opinion since putting on all that mass. It might compliment his wrestling more, but since when has Frank Mir been a wrestler? It helped him in his fights with Cro Cop and Roy Nelson, but its not going to help him in another fight with Carwin or a fight with Cain or JDS.
2nd of all, Jones hasn't fought Hendo. Also, Cain has much more versatile striking and is just a hell of a lot bigger. Another thing is, Cain has fewer fights than Jones does at this point and is going to continue to improve at just as quick of a rate if not a quicker one. We've seen Jones tire a bit in fights (not a lot) and we haven't seen Cain tire really at all. He went 3 hard rounds with Kongo, 2 hard rounds with Rothwell, and took out Lesnar and Nog in the 1st round and barely broke a sweat.
3rd, Jones still hasn't defended his title at LHW one time, so lets not be talking about him being HW champion until he actually does that.
