What's next for Jon Jones?

After his dominating "loss" against Hamill who should he fight next? After seeing him against Hamill, I really think he is a top fighter in that division. I know it might be hard to justify ranking him in the top ten because he doesn't have a lot of fight's and the best person he "beat" was only Hamill. But If I had to be honest, based on just what I see and not on peoples wins and losses, I would rank him 3rd in the division behind Shogun and Machida (that's right, I think he would beat Rashad and Rampage and any other top 205'er). I really think he is that good and he is only going to get better.

I feel like the UFC has to pick who they want to lose to him next and not who they want him to fight next. He's definitely ready for a big name, but who should it be? Maybe Lil Nog?

against lil nog would be sweet, i think matching him up against anyone other than top tier would be a waste of time and another massacre.

I would definitley give him somebody at the top to see how he does. I wont jump in and say he could beat one of the best stand up guys in the world like rampage yet.

It will probably be Jardine, the UFC LHW division stepping stone.

I think Jardine is an easy fight for Jones, but how about Forrest Griffin?

1st off, Jardine is no stepping stone. He's not consistent, but when he fights well he's a top fighter. He was dangerously close to beating Rampage. Also, I don't know if he will fight him because they now train together at Greg Jackson's camp.

Hmm ... somehow I can't see that happening - it'll probably be Forrest v Lil Nog next.

And the thing with Jardine is that now they train together so who knows. Who else is there? Machida is taking on Shogun, Rashad v T.Silva then Rampage. Perhaps Jon Jones v Franklin? assuming he's not going against Cote.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

I agree, this kid is going to be champ sooner or later. He is fascinating to watch as a fighter, so unpredictable. I think Jones vs lil nog would be amazing.

I agree, I didn't symbolize it will in my text but that was meant to be sarcasm. I like Jardine, and like you consider him a top fighter, but lets face it. That is not what the UFC uses him for. He's the scary looking guy who has wins over Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin, so if someone beats him, they must be a contender.

I don't see him getting through Lyoto or Shogun in the next 7 years or so. But he will become champion one day but i pretty sure Bones fans have to wait a long long time for it.
