Out of everyone to choose from you choose Dan? The guy's not even in the UFC, it's a pointless analysis.

Guys who can beat jones are good strikers, or big guys, that's it. Lyoto, Shogun, Rampage, maybe Forrest Griffin. Shogun got whooped, but he did have surgery and it was his first fight back after awhile out of the octagon. Lyoto has all the tools necessary to beat Jones. Rampage and Griffin negate Jone's size advantage, and are powerful dudes, Rampage is an especially dangerous match up for jones, I doubt Jones gets rampage down easily and he'll have to stand with him which is pretty dangerous.

All it takes is one H-Bomb.

But Jones would probably submit him.

Gustuffson is developing into a monster I have to agree. I think in a years time, he's going to be a real force in the division. Devastating hands.

This fight would be brutally one sided in Jones' favor.

Dan gets taken down by everyone and their mother.

In fact, I'd go as far as state outright that Henderson has flat out sub-par to bad takedown defense.

I effing love Henderson but I'm fully convinced he would get smashed in that matchup. Jones' takedowns are so explosive that I think he'd be able to get Hendo down at will and on the feet I think Jones would hit him with enough to rattle him until he secured the takedown and finished with his sick ground and pound. Hendo is great but Jones is just a phenomenon.

God I hate the SF announce team. I have an urge to ban you just for calling it the H bomb.
