I'd love to see Jones put on some weight and move up to HW. There would be a crazy fights will all those heavy hitters.
I'd give the edge to Jones too, simply because he's the bigger, stronger fighter, but I wouldn't count out the Spider with getting a knockout or submission win. He's way too well-rounded a fighter, and dangerous from any position.

Floyd took more jabs at MMA saying that Guerrero isn't a boxer but a mma fighter. He's flatfooted , grabs and wrestles.
"MMA is something you have to start when you're 12 or 13. It has to be a passion. That's the problem with boxing: There's no passion. People want to be record producers, rappers. In MMA, you see that passion. Georges St. Pierre, this is all he wants to do. That's why he's so successful. I think there's room for both MMA and boxing, but boxing just has too many black eyes. It doesn't have a good image. In MMA, even though people are fighting, they have a good image. Very few of them get into tragic troubles where they're beating people up and stuff." ~Tyson
imo, Jones is the best fighter in the history of the UFC. when there's an argument that you can beat anybody, in any division, that makes a pretty special fighter. his size, speed, strenght, fighting ability, and zen like attitude, nobody has this same package.
and can you market anybody better than him? american, exciting to watch, and very respectful; Dana has truly struck gold with Jones. and he's not even in his prime yet...

Was a big fan of Fedor, and this fight would've been interesting. Fedor would have a shot at beating him just because he was so accurate with his punches, but probably 7 times out of 10, Jones would win that fight based on better overall skills.
