2-3 years never!!!
Look at the age of Machida and shogun, 31 and 27. So you can see how long these two guys will stay 1 and 2 in the LHW devision.

I would love to see Jones fight Machida, Shogun, or Anderson. I absolutely would not count him out against any one of those fighters. Some people claimed Machida was the best in the LHW division way before he won the title but he had to prove it to everyone before people ranked him #1. Jon Jones might still have to prove it, but that doesn't mean he can't beat Machida or Shogun already. I don't have any idea how to game plan for Jon Jones. His reach in his arms and legs is not even human and he has great take downs and take down defense, and he seems to have solid jitz. And of course he hasn't even reached his full potential yet as he is just 22. He's just such a monster.

I don't know about Jardine he has always been one of the top dogs but he is a roller coaster. Griffin is a good challenge he sticks to a game plan well and i think he would be a better test then Jardine. I think Jardines ego gets in the way and one of the wacky spinning elbows is just the thing that Jardine would walk right in on.
I think little NOG would be the best fight to setup, he is the best step up for Jones who technically loss and Little nog is out to make a name(although any die hard fan knows he is already established) in the UF. It would be a good test to see if Jones can handle a crafty vet and if Little Nog can handle the new young breed of fighter

LITTLE NOG vs JONES

Watching that fight, I found myself marveling at the length of Jones. Not only is he tall, but his limbs are so...long. As he becomes more technically skilled, he'll use that length even better than he does now and will become very hard to hit. Combine that with his champion-wrestler pedigree, remarkable creativity, and explosive athleticism, and I think he has a ceiling higher than anyone else in MMA right now.

I agree with those who think that Jones will be champion in 2-3 years. He is like a pre-Hughes GSP in that everyone sees the greatness, but he may take a loss or two while he becomes more polished. And, like GSP, he will be almost unstoppable by his mid-twnties.

Whoever he fights next, I'm looking forward to it. It's refreshing to see a young guy with so much talent who is also humble and respectful. The dude is a class act.

Thanks, I always look at what people post on here but never signed up, Brandon vera just got robbed in a decision, and he was supposed to fight Hamil but Hamil got hurt and Jon Jones in my opinion should have won the fight earlier and so I think it would be a great matchup
