    Jones is far from stuck for fights at 205.

    Gus, Glover, Hendo if he beats Evans, Nog if he beats Shogun. Who said the Lhw devision has no fights left for Jones?

    Granted Mousasi is going to 185 so we lose a new contender for Jones but above there are 4 new oponents for Jones.

    Machida is a fighter people would like to see rematch him as well and he is top of the pile right now so there are 5 fighters kocking at the door of a title shot potnetially and id say Cormier will fight him at 205 rather than them facing at Hw.

    What do you all think? Not looking like Jones is out of challenges just yet?

    Feijao is another exiting one. I think he is better than his record and ranking at a glance. One loss was a DQ, One was a loss to Kyle he Avenged and the only other one was a 3rd round stoppage to Hendo in a fight I remember him giving Hendo all sorts of trouble. Id like to see him beat T.Silva because honestly I think he could be a title contender.

    Bader and Davis need to fight each other I reckon now. Both have come back from loses that really set their career but fans arent itching to see Bader rematch Jones or Davis full stop. I think it would test Baders wrestling defense and see if Davis can deal with a good wrestler who throws with bad intentions.

    Its an exciting devision for sure, I could see Jones being a 205er for a couple of years still. Does everyone think with the contenders starting to build up he will be tempted to stay at 205 longer?

    UFC really needs to delare who is fighting Jones.

    Jones is too inactive in a busy devision IMO. You look at what some of the guys have done to earn their shot.

    Machida - Beat Bader and Hendo (In a figth UFC called a Title eliminator) I believe he should fight Jones next even though Gus is trying to talk his way into the fight

    Gus - 6 fight winning streak. Shogun, T.Silva, Vlad, Hamill, Te Huna, The Snake... I can see why he could be seen as next if Hendo/Machida wasnt a number 1 contenders fight. Id like to see him fight a wrestler but thats 7 wins he will need to get a title shot!

    Glover - 19 fight wimming streak - 4 in UFC. Rampage, Kingsbury, Maldonado, Te Huna, Soko, Joaquim Ferreira, Ricco, Eastman, Márcio Cruz etc..

    The others we will have to see, I think Evans will beat Hendo easily but if Nog beats Shogun he is clear leader of the pack of the 4 and hasnt fought Jones. If he scores a win over Shogun after already beating Evans and Hendo (back in the day) he could leapfrog glover or Gus IMO.

    Too maby challengers for Jones to be taking his time between fights, twice a year isnt acceptable for a young champ to fight. He is wasting his youth being so inactive IMO.

    I really want to see Glover fight Jones - he doesn't seem to have any fear and is just a wrecking ball of a fighter.

    He definitely won't have lost the fight before he gets in the cage like the last few Jones has fought...
