PICK A FEW: Which of these guys would you most like to see style wise against Jones?

I'd be intrigued to see if his style could match up against any decent heavyweight. Should he be fighting in that class? No but I would like to see it. Both Machida and Rashad have caught him but he's just retreated to the end of his reach.

Here's a thought. Get big country down to 205 lol.

I'd say late Pride or early UFC Rampage. He's freakin' strong with good takedown defence and at that point he was still decently fast and mixed up his punches pretty well. He can also eat a ton of punishment without getting knocked out so he can get in close to unload with his vicious hooks and uppercuts.

Considering that most of the options are either wannabe cowards, or jokers that won fake battles at pride, i think its quite laughable anyone would even start comparing here.

You guys are one step away from creating a similar discussion to WHO WOULD WIN BATMAN OR SUPERMAN? this will get us nowhere, and for the record, i can bet a bag of potato chips anderson silva and jon jones will never spar.

Jon Jones is the present and future, no reason to even try to relation him with the soon to be forgotten past.

List is a joke to be honest, put rashad there and id vote for him.

Pride Cro-Cop would have gotten my vote, but he's not listed. I know he's HW but Jones has a bigger frame and CC was an undersized HW even in his day.

Fights I want to see and why.

Jon Jones vs:

Pride Shogun: I think he'd do a lil better, but he'd still get womped probably.

Prime Chuck: Just to see how the two styles play out. Jon Jones would be the aggressor and it's possible that he could walk into a Liddell bomb.

Anderson Silva: Just because I think Andy would do well for all of.. 3 minutes.

Junior Dos Santos: Just to see Jon Jones get roflstomped into the floor.

Pride Crocop: If it remained standing, it'd be a great fight.

Pride Fedor: I don't know how this would go... but it would be a beatdown.

Brock Lesnar: Because LOL
