5 Super-Fights for Jon Jones Not Involving Anderson Silva

If UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones gets by Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165 with the same ease in which he’s dismantled past challengers the 26-year old will be in the unique position of only having a contender or two left to face before having arguably cleaned out the division. If that day comes, Jones will need to consider other options including a potential dip of his toes in the heavyweight division’s pool or other opponents not normally associated with light heavyweight. So who might “Bones” end up battling in 2014 and beyond if he continues on his current career path? (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)

    Nothing against Bones but every guy on that list with the exception of Weidman beats him.

    Bones has the perfect size to be the dominant guy in his weight class, but I think every HW on that list would dominate him.

    None of those guys are “Super fights”. Until one of them earns and defends their title 4 or 5 times and basically wipes out their division, they’re just tough fights. The only “Super fight” for either Jones is Silva is each other.

    Even though Dos Santos isn’t the champ, I’d consider that fight a superfight just as I still would Anderson Silva…the rest, not even close
