If he does move up I think Mir should welcome him to the HW division

I agree. He might just find that he can't impose his will anywhere near as easily as he has when he's been the significantly bigger fighter, and I suspect that, as long as he can keep making the cut, he'll keep defending his belt at LHW.

I think he'll have some success up there, but I see a far rockier road for him at HW.

I may get some flack for this, but in my opinion, Jon Jones has NOT cleaned out the division enough to make a permanent move up to Heavyweight. He's got so many contenders lined up. Chael Sonnen, Machida/Henderson winner, Gus/Shogun winner, DC, Teixera, Phil Davis. Who knows what kind of future guys like Ryan Jimmo and Nedkov will have. And what if guys like Mo Lawal, Mousasi, and Feijao join by then and they tear up the LHW division?

He's still got plenty of fights still at Light Heavyweight. And while he may be the favorite in just about all his fights in the up and coming future, to completely right off the rest of the division is ridiculous, especially seeing how unpredictable UFC fights are...

I'd rather see him face Alistair. Imagine him kicking those skinny legs over and over again.

Jones weighs a alot more then 225lbs. This is exactly what Rashad Evans was referring too. The guy is fake as a 3 dollar bill. He would rather lie to the public and have them think he is smaller then he actually is so his looks greater in his skills. Jones gets offened in interviews when people say he's bigger then everyone.

He was 225 back in late 2010... Somenbody post up some pics of him then and now.. he's put on at least 15 pounds of solid muscle.

Overeem would snap those chicken legs in half. Jones would have to bulk up a lot to be competitive at HW. His entire game plan at lhw revolves around out muscling guys, which he won't be able to do unless he makes the transition slowly. Jones does have aHW frame though, so let's not kid ourselves; Jones could be a full sized 250-265lb HW in 5 years if he starts bulking up.

Now how do you know he's lying?

The only way to prove this is someone tweet Jones and ask him to record him weighing in or something.
