Jones lost three rounds to Bonnar?

Wouldn't that have lost him the fight?

Ofcourse that's the only thing that makes sense or he lost the 3rd round to Bonnar.

Frankly the fact that he is the only man to come back from a Jones beating should have locked him into a title fight. In my eyes he's the Maurice Smith to Jones Mark Coleman (LOOK IT UP KIDS).

It isn't only that he is winning, it's how easy he's making it look. In just over one year he took out the top 4 fighters in his division, looking vulnerable maybe once or twice. A division that many said was the strongest in the UFC prior to Jones' run.

Seriously. Do people even watch the fights? Jon Jones is something special, and it's too bad so many people can't get over their irrational hate of him.

Fact: The man has destroyed legends of the sport. No other LHW in the division could go on the run he's had. None of them, hence why the belt changed hands nearly every time it was defended (since Liddell).

Fact: That makes him really damn good, and that's coming from someone who doesn't care for him a whole lot (though I love to watch him fight).

Opinions don't really matter when there's clear and indisputable evidence to prove that, in fact, JBJ is a helluva fighter who is worthy of the praise he gets.

At this point the interesting part of the game is figuring out who has what it takes. Vitor came the closest...nobody would have thought that about Vitor. We were all expecting a TKO one way or another.

Majority of his fights he inflicts the most damage on the ground. That's why I think Cormier with Olympic caliber wrestling poses the most interesting challenge.

Can he KO opponents standing. Most likely yes, but ironically we havn't seen it yet as majority end on the ground. Against Cormier he would have to keep his distance. The clinch game, grappling, wrestling all goes to Cormier which automatically negates a big part of the LHW title holder's game.

At this point Hendo, Gustaf/Shogun/Machida are all formalities. I believe with Mir out of the Cormier fight and Cain imo will edge out a decision against JDS even though I went with JDS a very long time ago. The stars are aligned for Cormier (SF HW GRAND PRIX WINNER) to take on the LHW champ.
