Doesn't refute the fact they were MWs with no ranking in LHW. State the obvious facts of history more.

Rematches between top 5 LHWs are better than putting Jones in there with people who are unranked in his division.

A division is not cleaned out if the champion is not competing in rematches against whoever is the number one contender at the time.

Glover and Gus are next up for Jones. But there are still enough rematches until more prospects arise.
