God damn Gustafsson is one big mother-effer.
He will not dethrone Jones...I think he will make the fight competitive but he is getting submitted.

The difference in competition between the two is huge as well, Gus is number one mostly because the LHW division is rather weak, Gus's best win is a decision over Shogun and his next best win is Thiago Silva. Nothing in either of those fights suggested he has the style to beat the destroyer that is JBJ.
I feel like if Jones wasn't in the LHW division we would still consider it one of the deepest in MMA. I think when there is an extremely dominant champ like Jones or Anderson or GSP, especially one who has beaten the top 2-5 soundly, there is a common theme of a weak division. Then you get divisions like LW where the belt has changed hands often and it is often considered the deepest.

I don't think so. GSP has dominated 170 and I think that is one of the deepest and toughest divisions around. LHW is not as good as it has been in the past. Rampage fell off and left, Tito is no more, Rashad has not looked like his old self, Machida isn't the crazy puzzle he used to be, Forrest is done and Shogun is a shell of his former self.
