I am going with Jones because from what I have seen so far I have liked and I also don't like Bonnar.

You might be right I just think Jones is such a great athlete that as he improves skill wise he will become an impact player in LHW.

Bonnar is skilled but he's not the most athletic guy I think Jon being a great athlete could give him a tough time.

Bonnar will beat him.

TKO/Submission. You're not ready yet Jones.

Great exposure for ToeZup here.

Jon Jones is a great prospect, Stephan Bonnar is a very good fighter. I agree with Bonnar being the favorite but Jones could still win this.

I thought they may give Jones someone slightly less formidible - like Schafer or Cantwell- Bonnar seems like a big step up for mine- but he hasnt had a fight in ages and Jones may suprise

You are right about jones he is a great athlete but is still pretty inexperienced. Give him a few fights and he could become a real threat to a lot if people.

Bonnar may not be that athletic but he can and will go full on for three rounds. He isn't going to get dominated anywhere by Jones. That said Jones could still spark him out as he looked to have pretty heavy hands especially as I have said Bonnar will have some cage rust. Should be a good entertaining fight.

Jones is a very promising fighter, Bonnar is an experienced fighter and a great test for Jones here.

You should get Jones here on the forum.
