Light Heavyweight: Jon Jones

Former UFC light heavyweight champion and former pound-for-pound king Jon “Bones” Jones never lost his 205-pound title inside the Octagon, but he was stripped of it due to various legal issue instead. Putting his issues outside of the cage aside, however, I feel as if Jones is the best fighter on the planet.

With that being said, he is currently serving out a year long suspension due to a failed drug test, but he will likely return this July. When he does return, I’d have to assume that it’d be in an immediate title fight.

Jones has already beaten current champion Daniel Cormier in dominant fashion and he’s come dangerously close to cleaning out the division. If “Bones” can clear up his issues away from fighting, I expect to see him reclaim his throne at 205-pounds.
