The fact that you're using 'malapropism' in a sentence means you have a better grasp of the english lanuage than I do and english is my first language!

I didn't even know there was a word to define that situation (life, live).

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

They only look slim because he's 6'4. He's obviously not got thick legs but you're exaggerating massively. As for needing time in a squat rack, Anderson would beg to differ.

I agree at 205 he is a predator close to the top of the food chain, in HW he will become a herbivore. But I believe he will stay there for most of his career even if it means losing muscle. That pound from 205 to 206 is the biggest pound in MMA by far. I could see people chopping off some toes to stay under it

I think he looks excellent at 205.
He is a relativelly big LHW but there are bigger guys than him.
Some of you are right on saying that he is still young and for that reason he still can add some mass on his frame. But, the fact is, beeing young, he can control his weight better than the older guys. And for that reason, i think he will stay at 205 for 3-4 years at least.
If i'm not mistaking, I heard him once, saying he will like to compete at HW and that eventually it will happen. But he would have to add some serious mass on him. It's kinda the same story like Mousassi. He also said that at one point he wants to go to teh HW division.
Only time will tell...

He can be 205 for the duration of his career imo. It would take a long, long time to bulk up sufficiently to compete with the biggest guys at HW.
