Of course he won't win the belt from Machida. Jones vs Machida will be a contenders match for Rua's belt...

Bones is definitely similar to Anderson Silva, but Anderson has thickened out over the years. Didn't he fight at 170 in the past? Even in Pride I'm sure Silva looked thinner than he is now.

With Bones' extra couple of inches and muscular upper half, I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up cutting a lot of weight.

I think he'll fight at 205 for a long while, but I think ultimately it will be decided by how his body develops. Saying that he could pass for 28 as it is, he may have done the majority of his growing.

Was a joke Bobby... Machida fanboys are so sensitive. I can't wait for May 8th though.

But to the original topic -- Jones looks pretty lean naturally, so unless he makes a concentrated effort to bulk up, I don't foresee an issue with him staying at 205.

He does have some scrawny chicken legs though, and looks like he could use some time in a squat rack, but those toothpick legs haven't derailed his success thus far, I suppose

He'll have no trouble staying at 205. Tito Ortiz use to walk around at around 225, 230ish, and he always made the cut. Look at how physically big Nate Marquardt is at 185. Jones might walk around at 220. But he's been a wrestler since birth. When I wrestled I cut to 152, 160 from right around 187 to 190. I never made it to the elite level he was at, so it's a sure thing that he knows how to cut weight. That means he will stay at 205 as long as he wants.

Yea Anderson would not step into Lyoto's devision and fight for the belt against Rua and would take away Lyoto's chance to regain the belt. He would continue fighting at MW or maybe HW.

That is one of the funnier word misplacement iv seen yet.
Its LIVE buddy not life. Haha.. im not going to correct you on your spelling cause that doesn't matter but you should try to use the right words. Happens to me all the time which is why i decided to point yours out.

Also back to the topic at hand.

I dont think he will ever have to go to HW because i think he knows what that would mean for his career. Good luck to him throwing Brock Lesnar like he did Stephan Bonnar lol.
