Weidman hasn't been no where near as dominant as Aldo and Bones doe
Is Weidman in the top 3, maybe yes.
In the same class as Aldo and Bones right now, no
Hell of a fight too
He'd get in the pocket and risk his chin. Weidman gives no dambs about mixing it up and getting dirty. But yeah that's what I was saying with the reach initially
Weidman would surely eat some elbows and shots from Jones as he tries to get in the pocket. It would kinda be like his fight with Belfort. Belfort was hitting him with some shots thats when Weidman decided he had enough and went for the takedown. With Jones idk if he'd be able to get the takedown though. But if he did get him down, I might give Weidman a slight advantage on the ground. His bjj is slick.
I guess yall only see Bones losing to a HW then
No hate on that opinion, it's reasonable. Just don't think Weidman goes down that easily. Weidman could probably beat Rockhold, Souza and that wouldn't really prove anything in terms of his prospects against Jones. So looks like we're stuck unless they ever meet
I expected Barao to move up to 145 lb. If you lose twice to the same champion, its close to impossible to get a third championship fight against that same person. Unless you're Meisha and the rest of the division is absolute crap.
Jury moving down is kinda surprising. His only loss was to Cerrone who is on a hot streak right now.
