Re: How many active heavyweights would you back to beat Jon Jones?
I'd take Junior and Overeem to light him up on the feet and be too big and strong for Jones to take down, so I'd pick both of them to win comfortably. Other than that id make Barnett a slight favourite, all depending if he can get it to the floor to utilise that catch wrestling, which i think would give Bones fits. Cain might be able to out wrestle him as well so I'd give him a good chance. The rest get ****ed by him in my opinion. Mir and Werdum would be lit up and unable to take it to the ground wher they want it, Fedor and Cormier are just to small to be able to do anything, Bigfoot is too slow and cumbersome and Carwin and Kharitonov just arent good enough. As far as Nelson goes, I'd pick Shogun, Hendo and Machida to demolish him, hes not even a threat to Jones.
