Weight 234 lb
Division Heavyweight (265 lb)
Reach 82 in (208 cm)

Jones:

 

Height: 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m)
Weight: 204.6 lb 
Division: Light Heavyweight (205 lb)
Reach:84.5 inches (2.15 m)

Never gonna pay Taxes - Jones really should be at HW hes just TOO big for the dudes at LHW imo. But i don't see him beating guys like Velasquez or JDS, maybe not even Overeem. But all of those would be great fights

He weighed in at 215 last week...on what planet is that too big for LHW?
Oh you mean, his arms are too long for LHW

Does anybody know at what weight Jones normally walks around?

Seems like he is right on the edge of cutting to 205, or adding 10-15 pounds of muscle and moving to HW (?).

He walks around at like 230-240 i thought. Hes way taller than everyone and longer. The only other fight i wanna see with him at LHW is Alexander Gustafsson then he should move up

WTF do you get that from?
He weighed in at 215 last week, against Vitor he was 216 one week out from fight.
Here's an out of shape Jones at 227 pounds
http://forums.sherdog.com/forums/f2/pic-pre-camp-jones-weighing-227-a-2145339/

Any "way" taller than everyone?
Here's the UFC LHW roster
http://www.ufc.ca/fighter/Weight_Class/Light_Heavyweight?offset=0&max=20&sort=lastName&order=asc

Average height is around 6'2. Jones is not some giant..he's 6'4

Diabate, Kingsbury, Bonnar, Gustaffson, Phil Davis, Vinny...all these LHWs are around Bones' size but no one cries that they're "too big"

Diabate is the only one with a similar build (crazy reach and toothpick legs).

So Jones should be a heavyweight BECAUSE of his toothpick legs? The argument was that he was too big for HW, not that his "build" should require him to fight at HW.
All of those guys are within a small percentage of Jones plus or minus on height/weight/reach.

Jones has been in the ring at up to 227 for his 205 fights, what you see is already only a few pounds lighter than Kongo.

"Walk around weight" is a totally meaningless term. This is what Jones looks like when he weighs 230:

 

 

 

 

He weighs under 220 after a camp. That's totally normal for a LHW.

Chaelismyhero - Don't let these other poster confuse you...Jon Jones is a MASSIVE light heavyweight. Probably the biggest in MMA history,other than Travis Wuiff.

Look at Jon's fight vs. Bader. Bader is a big ass dude and he looked like a kid.

Relying on pictures is the dumbest fucking thing to gauge size.

Bader is 6'2 and cuts from 230 while Jones is 6'4 and cuts from 225. LOL@ that difference making Bader look like a kid

Vinny has weighed 230 on fight night, that's more than Jones ever has as far as we know. Wiuff of course dwarfed him at 241 on fight night by his own admission. Forrest is right there at 225-230, Bonnar about the same.

CRMartin11 - Jones is massive he should go up to at least 250. Add some weight to those chicken legs.

He's "massive" but he has "chicken legs"

Jones should be a LHW as long as he manages to make the weight limit. Anyone who says otherwise is a fool.

Could he make an effective and dominante HW, now doubt. But if he choses LHW and makes the weight then he is a LHW. Lots of the LHW's are retardedly big off season (Forrest, Bonner, Rampage, etc) but they make the weight at weigh in and there are are LHW.

LOL @ comparing Jones with Wiuff. Wiuff said on this forum that he weighed 240 in the cage for his Bellator LHW tournament fights. Jones is no where near that size.
