For someone who has accomplished so much Jones sure likes to dumb his arguments down a lot. There may very well come a day when Jones would like to jump the heavyweight ladder to face the Heavyweight champ I don't see why he has a problem with DC's resume I mean DC is basically the linear heavyweight champ he is the black Fedor reincarnate. Someone as talented and accomplished as Jones should and could simply step up to any and all challenges put forth in the octagon without complaint. Its a waste of his own time to worry about opponent selection.

What gives me the shakes or goosebumps while watching title fights (which doesn't happen as much as it used to) was when one fighter would tear his way through two or three of the other hungriest top dogs, making it a very difficult path to the champion. It gives the fight so much more weight for both the challenger and champion, and the victory a much greater achievement. It also makes for greater nostalgia later on.
There's no denying Daniel is a legitimate threat to Bones. His track record at HW rightfully influences immediate interest, but he should be pitted against the top 5 because of it, and not just one of them. He has no substance at LHW. That doesn't mean he couldn't beat Jon right now, but the quality of the product would be substantially better if they built him up more.
When guys get immediate title shots these days, even though its still interesting, it takes away from the win for the champion. It's like you're watching to see if the underdog will pull off the upset, and if he fails, it was expected.
In the end, the only prize a fighter keeps is you. I only ask that you continue supporting all athletes. Keep supporting them, because in the end your applause is the only thing that remains. The rest is only an illusion. - Wanderlei to fans
DC is no worse than #3 in the world at HW by anybody's rankings, and #2 by mostly all. I think that's the point he was trying to make. I've always been a believer in the champ fights whoever is ranked the highest when he is able to compete. He shouldn't wait around for somebody to earn it. Shit, Weidman isn't waiting around for Machida to really earn his shot, he's the best available, and they are fighting. If the guy didn't deserve to be there, then enjoy showing the world that, and your pay day. I don't know if I'd give it to goose or DC, but I do know that the champ shouldn't be inactive while it's figured out, pick one and set a date (when I say pick one, I do not mean that Bones gets to do the picking).

Wouldn't it be nice if you could find a way to mute jones until fight night and then mute him again? Seriously, i would love to like this kid because he's so fucking talented but that ego and mouth.
