And I think the 3rd guy in UFC history to win titles in two different weight classes. Yeah, I said it.

Huh? HW? I think your kidding! I hope!

Oh, and he has to beat a prime Rua....man LHW is stacked and Jones is still green on top tier competition. He should fight Jackson, Evans, Machida, Griffin, Lil Nog and beat two of those before giving him a chance at a belt.

OR, have Silva step up to LHW (AGIAN) and fight Jones!

He'll have to wait until Shogun retires...

If he wins on August 1st, maybe he should get Machida next. Assuming that he beats Machida, he should get the winner of Rua/Evans after that.

Rua/Evans isn't happening. Rua is going to be out to about spring 2011. Machida v Evans might happen. Then Jones can face Jackson. If Jones beats Jackson he can have the loser of Machida/Evans....and IF he wins he can get a shot at the belt holder.

He's probably not.

Jones said in a recent interview that his body continues to grow and he is getting to big for the 205 pound britches. He said he is walking around now at 231 and if he keeps gaining weight he will move up to HW eventually.

He will not have to restrict his diet anymore and will get way bigger and stronger if he goes to HW. He should be able to maintain his speed as well.

Imagine a 245-250 pound Jon Jones. I think he would beat Brock easily.

Not even close to kidding. He walks around notrth of 231 and is only 22. Kids still growing.

I think you're a little nutz. With the size of the new breed apes that now fight at HW. 240-250 of solid muscle is nothing, or medicore at best. He should concentrate on 205. If he's 231 Cigano is only 235-240....my money is on Cigano.
