Jon Jones looked very impressive. He is very comfortable on his feet and fluid with his strikes. I think he is going to evolve into a better version of Anderson Silva. He makes his opponents look terrible, just like Silva, and strikes from all different angles. I see Machida holding the belt for the next year or two, and then Jones being the one to defeat him once he becomes a more complete fighter. I don’t think there will be a Machida-Silva fight. But we might see Jones-Silva.
There is no one at light Heavy Weight who can beat Machida right now. Jones will be the one to eventually defeat him and become one of the top p4p fighters and hold that position for a while, like Silva. This is my prediction.
I want to see Rashad-Jon Jones after Rampage beats Evans. And then Rampage-Jones, after Machida beats Jackson. Before the Rashad fight, they will give Jones a fight.
I also think Henderson’s next fight will be against Silva, given he comes out without any injuries in the Griffin fight.
