Jon Jones Responds To Conor McGregor's 'MMA GOAT' Claims

Jon Jones Responds To Conor McGregor's 'MMA GOAT' Claims

Jon Jones has responded to Conor McGregor's claims that he is the 'MMA GOAT, aiming digs at both Anderson Silva and Jones over their failed drugs tests.

On Saturday afternoon the Notorious was obviously feeling a bit bored and took to Twitter to outline who he believed was on MMA's 'Greatest of all time' list.

The Irishman named Silva as number one, himself two, or joint one, Georges St Pierre at three and Jones at four. Before pointing out Silva and Jones had failed drugs tests for PEDs and so bumped himself to one.

Now Jones has replied but claimed he will let his fans do the talking for him.

Current UFC light heavyweight champion 'Bones' has been pretty active on social media himself recently, getting into heated debates with Francis Ngannou.

The big hitting heavyweight and the legendary light heavyweight have been getting people hyped for a potential fight and Jones wondered how he'd gone from one inter weight rivalry to another.

Even at his heaviest it's not likely that McGregor will ever step in the octagon with Jones, but the American can seemingly only feud with people outside of his current division.

As well as McGregor and Ngannou, he has also had a rivalry with middleweight champion Israel Adesanya in recent times, with the pair geared for a potential rivalry in the octagon in the future.

As well as the boredom most are feeling because of lockdown, McGregor's current boredom may also be linked to the fact that he doesn't know who his next opponent it.

The former lightweight champion returned to action after more than a year out by beating Donald Cerrone at welterweight in January.

He was then expected to fight Justin Gaethje at his former title winning weight but a reorganisation of the division has left 'The Highlight' as interim champion to Khabib Nurmagomedov's title.

Instead he has been tipped to face former two time opponent Nate Diaz at welterweight, for the pairs long awaited trilogy fight.

Silva is said to be recovering from recent knee surgery and intends to see out the two fights left on his UFC contract, meaning he could face McGregor in the near future.
