Simply put, NO, Hendo would not be the man to dethrone Jones. If not for that sledgehammer right hand, Hendo's stand up would be mediocre at best. Besides, Hendo could not get close enough to land that slow pitch overhand, giving up over 10 inches in reach. Jones is more dynamic anywhere this fight goes. Standing, Hendo - Overhand right, Jones - anything he wants to throw. Clinch, this is close, since both have world class Greco, but I'm gonna go with Jones because he actually uses throws now, and I don't think I've seen Hendo successfully throw anyone since pride. Ground, this'd have to be Jones also, cuz if the Wrestling was even, Jones has submissions, Hendo doesn't, or at least doesn't use them, at all, ever. Again, No Hendo is not the answer to Jon Jones.
