Jon is the best. He's the most complete mentally, physically and skillset wise, He's consistent and high level in more areas than the rest. 

 

I still think Rumble can smash him and could be a bad match-up for Jon as long as he's not put on his back early. I think DC can smoother him and give him problems. Gus can out strike him at distance and Glover can catch him inside if he creates chaos in clinches.

Rashad Evans isn't among my favourite fighters, but I also choose him. He is the best, the most talented LHW, with the best skillset.

I recently rewatched the Jones vs Evans fight, which pretty much was a HW vs MW freakshow... well, it would be one if not for the ridiculous skillset superiority of Evans, which made it into an even fight. Which is unbelievable when you think about it.

If the 1 foot reach difference between went in Rashad's favour, there are few reasons to think Jones wouldn't have been killed in the octagon.

Lol, your "facts" are so false. 5 inches? Do you see 5 inches on the picture above? Yeah - in a single arm length difference.

 

 

Jones - 85", Evans - 75", and to that you add the height difference, because Jones' extended arms are on Evans' face height.

Evans still isn't the best. He needs to go down a weight class.
