Joe Rogan Snubs Demetrious Johnson As He Names New Pick In MMA GOAT Debate
UFC legend Joe Rogan now believes that Jon Jones is the best MMA fighter of all time ahead of Demetrious Johnson.
And Rogan even declared former MMA star Khabib Nurmagomedov the best fighter of all time after his sensational victory over Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 last month.
The American has once again touched on the GOAT debate recently on The Joe Rogan Experience.
Rogan believes that UFC legend Jones is ahead of Khabib due to the quality of opponents that 'Bones' has fought in his career.
The Joe Rogan Experience host explained: "That is the argument, right? Like, who is the GOAT?

"I think if you look at Jon Jones' early career, Jon Jones wins the title early in his career, in 2011. And from then on [he] has fought more fights at championship fights than any other fights.
"So, he's the most accomplished for sure. Wins the title, youngest guy to ever win the title in the UFC. Beats Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua who's a legend, then the way he dominates all these other fighters [...]."
Rogan continued by pointing to Jones' victories over Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans and Quinton Jackson during his early UFC light heavyweight title defences.
He continued: "Up until he gets to Alexander Gustafsson, you can make the argument that he had a similar career [as Khabib]. If you look at what he did.
"Jon didn't lose any rounds, Jon was smashing people. Look at what he did to Rashad Evans, what he did to Rampage Jackson, at what he did to Lyoto Machida. Everybody he fought up until the Gustafsson fight."
