My ideal situation is Jones/Sonnen (where I personally think Sonnen has a pretty awesome shot tbh) with Jones winning, thhen Hendo/Machida as #1 contender and Comier fighting and smashing Shogun for #1 contendership. Maybe get Glover and Gustaf in as #1 contenders after that.

This.

If he can make the cut without destroying his vital organs then nobody will be able to stop him. This guy is a better wrestler than Cain, equally as strong and a better boxer. There's nobody in MMA that can stop DC from taking them down.

The belts don't really matter any more.

When you look at a guy like Anderson or GSP's record as champion, you see that a lot of the guys who got shots didn't really deserve them, and a lot of guy were in those divisions at the time who deserved shots and didn't get them.

It's all meaningless at this point.

Cormier is 33-34 he's not getting younger, he's been stuck in strikeforce with cards and events getting cancelled. I say give the guy a break and give him jones. Cormier is a machine and will give jones more of a fight than anyone on the UFC roster at this time.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

Hard to disagree with this although Cormier should still have to earn a title fight and not be gifted one.

Isn't that the trend though? Though DC would be by far Jones' toughest test, it's still silly that two guy's eventually could end up with title shots in weight classes they haven't literally done anything.

And I like it that way, this is the fight business and fights that happen that way are a good thing and it always keeps you guessing for what's gonna happen next with the matchups. Combat sports needs that craziness unlike in team sports the top seeded team has to face the 2nd best team in the superbowl where it could still be a blowout.

Shields and fitch both were on big streaks and they got number contendership and they both got crushed, but condit only had a few wins in a row and a controversial one over diaz and he did way better than both of them.

I hope he consults a doctor before even trying to cut down. Last time he cut weight he almost died.
