jon jones would pick jds apart
 
JDS is a great fighter and an awesome guy, but in my opinion he goes down to Jones as they stand now...

JDS isn't fast enough to pose as big of a threat to jones as most think. he has great hand speed. and excellent foot work. but he is entirely too one dimensional/ and flat out too slow to be able to land anything serious on jones. johnny could EASILY keep him at bay with his barrage of kicks, 84" eye pokes(jab). and coud easily back pedal his way out of any danger while picking jds apart. If two of the fastest lhw's in rashad and machida couldn't hit him with anything serious. while Jones was worried about takedowns/boxing/clinch/head kicks/leg kicks etc. how on earth would jds land anything serious when all jon would have to worry about is about is punches.

i'm not counting jds out 100% and it would be foolish to. i can definitely see him knocking jones' head completely off of his shoulders, countering a spinning elbow or something. but just in my head i see jones winning this fight 6-7 times out of 10. and i see jones being more conservative with his spinning stuff, significantly lowering the risk of taking a bomb.

agree/disagree?

Yeah but he wouldnt stand too long anyway.

I have JDS winning that fight. Jones is beating glorified middleweights and now actual middleweights. Fighting a 6'4 240lb beat like JDS is a whole different story.

Rashad and Machida both landed pretty clean, heavy shots on Jones.

It's not just speed (which he has plenty of) that makes JDS such a beast on his feet, it's his fantastic footwork and great timing. He's able to cover ground, get in and get out, and time his shots just about as well as anyone in the UFC. If Jones beats JDS, it won't be on his feet.

I doubt it. He would eat one and land an over hand on Jones' exposed chin.

Jones would need to take this to the ground. He might be able too. Probably would. Not sure if he would be able to keep him there.

JDS isnt worried about Jones punching power. JDS would throw a barrage of punches at Jones and overwhelm him. Speed wont help him avoid that.

Jones has shown a decent chin, and even though JDS isnt the hardest hitting fighter at anything over 185 he can still Ko the likes of Jones..

this fight will happen in the next few years though

it would be difficult for jds to land a overhand with his 77' reach to jones 84.5' reach he would still have 7.5' reach disadvantage. so jds would not just charge like a mad man, he wont be able to with jon jones throwing a million side kicks to the knee keeping jds out of range of his punches.
