Fans love to discuss superfights between UFC champions, and one of the biggest fights out there is 205-pound champion Jon Jones vs. heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez.
In a Q-and-A session last winter, one attended by MMA Digest, Jones stated that he wants the superfight against Velasquez.
There is little doubt that the fight would draw significant interest, but the fight is not close to happening. Both competitors have several challengers waiting for them throughout 2014 and into next year.
Most recently, light heavyweight Fabio Maldonado moved up to take on the No. 7-ranked heavyweight contender Stipe Miocic. However, Jones is not Maldonado. There is a distinct discrepancy in skill between the two fighters.
Did Miocic's victory at The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale give us a preview of what happens to light heavyweights who make the jump up, or does Jones have a legit shot at dethroning the champion? Let's break down this hypothetical fight.
