Right now, I'd pick him to beat any fighter in the world.
Tell me I missed the /sarcasm sign man.....not you too....

Anyone know where I can drink some koolaid, I seem to be the only one not having fun

In all fairness, if by some far out chance that he moved up to HW (hypothetical) in the next 6 months I would automatically have him in the top 10. But make no mistake about it, Cain or JDS will own that division for a while at least for now. IF JBJ continues to develop gains the proper mass and continues to improve I have no doubt that in 2 years or so he will rule LHW or HW division. Just not now.

ha ha, sorry bud. I'm not just suddenly jumping on a bandwaggon though. I have called Jon Jones a spectacular MMA talent ever since the Stephan Bonnar fight.

I've genuinely never seen a talent in MMA quite like Jon Jones unfold before my very eyes.

I'm predicting Jones vs Cain in a few years time to be fight of the century.

No doubt about that I think you would hard pressed to find even haters not respecting his talent. He's a natural. Things I need to know before I consider him GOAT status:

1) I want to see him in a war
2) I want to see his recovery time after being tagged hard
3) I want to see his heart, maybe after losing a few rounds to see how he deals with it
4) I want to see him against a top notch BJJ artist (shogun was decent)
5) I want to see what happens when fame, money and women come knocking and if that will pose a distraction (that's part of what makes Silva and GSP great).

Once those things are answered I promise to erect (heh heh he said erect) a shrine in his honor.

At LHW? Sorry folks, but I think a focused on-form Forrest Griffin would pull the win off, Great Jits and reach and a size to match Jones well. At HW? I'll go with the masses here and say Cain too.

As far LHWs, pretty much just machida and anderson because they're the the more seasoned strikers and they have the judo to counter jones throws.
