Silva but then again i don't think Silva has the balls to take him on but than again Silva has no problem taking on the much smaller GSP IF IT HAPPENS.

Struve? Browne? Weidman?

The choices should be Silva, Henderson, JDS, Velasquez, Overeem.

Well if he moves to HW I don't know if he'll move right into a title fight or #1 contender-esque fight. If he were to move to HW tomorrow I'd like to see him fight a guy like Frank Mir first. Struve and Browne seem like odd choices personally.

I don't like these choices. I vote Hendo I guess after he loses to Chael.

I thought Struve would be a good entry point for the division. They're comparable in reach making for an intriguing stand up battle.

Why are people listing MWs? I have no interest in watching Jones fight LHWs at this point. Toss him to the heavies where he belongs. Jones is a shining example why weight alone is not a good way to classify divisions. His 6-10"+ reach advantage is far more valuable than the odd 10-20lb would be.

I listed those names bc Dana sees money in a fight like that.

He's not fighting Silva for another 6 months. A little soon to be thinking about his next opponent. A lot can happen during that time, i.e. Henderson and Machida fighting eliminates one of them as a possibility. I also don't see him moving up to HW unless it's an immediate title shot in the next year or two.

He cuts from 225, so 20 lbs.

Phil Davis after he destroys Forrest. I know it won't happen but it's a fight I'd like to see before jones naturally has to go to HW.

Mr. Wonderful isn't as polished but he's a better wrestler & the only guy who is in his size/athleticisim realm. If Phil keeps improving it's a good fight.
