UFC 128 at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey marked the beginning of Jon "Bones" Jones' reign as UFC light heavyweight champion.
Destroying seasoned veteran and former UFC and Pride light heavyweight champion, Mauricio "Shogun" Rua, Jones captivated millions of fans with his arsenal of stand-up strikes and brilliant take-down defense to become the youngest UFC champion in history.
Crowned champion, experts worldwide will now begin to analyze the "what-ifs" of "Bones's" career.
One such query is "what-if" Jones competed at heavyweight? What fighters could the current UFC light heavyweight champion challenge, if not defeat?
At 6'5" with a reach of 84.5", Jones has the physical stature to match-up against most of the roster in the UFC heavyweight division.
Walking around at roughly 220 pounds, Jones is an under-sized competitor for the array of super heavyweights present in the UFC.
Therefore, the following are 10 heavyweights I feel Jon "Bones" Jones can challenge, if not earn a victory against, based on "Bones's" size, speed, dynamic offense and overall skill-set.
I welcome your comments.
