Dana White Argues 'There’s No Debate' Over Who The True UFC GOAT Is

UFC president Dana White has ended the long-running MMA GOAT debate once and for all by naming Jon Jones as the best fighter of all time.

UFC legend Jones, 33, is frequently placed in the same conversation as Georges St-Pierre over who the undisputed GOAT of MMA is.

And White, 51, has said that there is "no debate" over Jones' status as the best fighter MMA has ever seen.

"Listen, there's no debate," the UFC chief told ESPN.

"Jon Jones is the GOAT. Jon Jones is the greatest to ever do it.

"There's no debate about it if you look at what the guy has accomplished, and what he was doing while he accomplished these things. You know what I mean?"

Jones has reigned supreme over the light heavyweight division and swept aside countless opponents as he strengthens his claim as UFC's GOAT.

But the UFC legend has continued to tease his long-awaited climb up to heavyweight and has entered into a heated spat with Francis Ngannou.

Jones has been linked with a potential UFC super-fight with the 'Predator,' but White has since hit out at him for the "absurd amount of money" he's asking for the clash.

The UFC president explained: "It's one thing if you come out and say, 'Yeah, listen, I want a little more money.'

"The amount of money Jon Jones wanted doesn't make [sense]. First of all, you have, in the light heavyweight division, the Dominick Reyes fight as the fight that makes sense.

"So is Jon Jones going to go and fight Francis Ngannou, then try to take a run at the heavyweight title? I don't believe that. He's never wanted to move to heavyweight before.

"For the amount of money he's asking for, it's not going to happen. You couldn't be asking for a more absurd amount of money at a worse time."
