Khabib Nurmagomedov Asked Who Is The Best Pound-For-Pound Fighter In UFC Right Now

Khabib Nurmagomedov Asked Who Is The Best Pound-For-Pound Fighter In UFC Right Now

Khabib Nurmagomedov believes that Jon Jones rightfully deserves to be ahead of him as UFC's best pound-for-pound fighter.

When he was asked who is UFC's best pound-for-pound fighter, Khabib simply responded: "Jon Jones."

And the 31-year-old Dagestan superstar's response was met with applause from those in attendance.

Jones has only lost once inside the octagon as a result of a controversial DQ decision in his 2009 clash with Matt Hamill.

And 'Bones' also had his KO victory over Daniel Cormier in their second fight overturned to a 'no contest' after he tested positive for turinabol.

However, Jones has only fought once in 2020 after successfully defending his title against Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in February.

Jones has remained firm on his position as the best fighter the sport has ever seen and dismissed the idea that Khabib could be considered the MMA GOAT over him.

When Jones was asked what separates him from the 'Eagle,' he responded: "If you were to ask some MMA experts about myself and Khabib, I think most people would be able to tell our resumes are completely different.

"I've fought so many world champions that I've defeated. Khabib, a lot of his victories are against a lot of people that are relatively unknown.

"I've been fighting legends since I was a young man."
