Weidman vs Jones who would win ?
Weidman 187 cm
Jon Jones 193
Cain 185 cm

Weidman actually is taller than the heavyweight champion and he is taller than some of Jones recent opponents. If Weidman packed on muscles could he beat Jon Jones ?

IMO I think he would lose vs Jones since his style does not match up very well

- He does have ok footwork but not good enough to be able to constantly close in on Jones huge range

- Since Jones is an outstanding wrestler himself and will at fight night have a few pounds weight advantage it would be hard for Weidman to take Jones down. They could nullify each others wrestling. This leads to a "rerun" of Jones vs Rashad Evans (= Jones by UD)

close but Jones. I think Jones is the best P4P I mean he has never lost a fight and he seems like he can win anyway he wants to. I mean he even beat Chael at his own game. I dont know of a man alive that could beat him.

Screw it.... I say Weidman can beat Cain and JDS at the same time with one arm tied behind his back.

I don't think Weidman is ready for Jones yet.

btw, I hate Jon Jones.

Let's not go crazy here... just because Weidman got the belt doesn't mean he's suddenly the Pound 4 Pound King of UFC. Let's atleast see him defend the belt before people go nuts about him being the greatest ever.

Jones by fence mauling. Jones is freakishly strong, he ragdolled Sonnen like a small child.

Helax, let that poor guy defend his title at his own weight class first a couple of times before catapulting him to #1 P4P and GOAT status.

Jones would murder Weidman, that fight would be less competitive than Jones vs Sonnen.
