Jon Jones Gives Passionate Video Response To Anyone Who Thinks Khabib Nurmagomedov Is The GOAT

Jon Jones Gives Passionate Video Response To Anyone Who Thinks Khabib Nurmagomedov Is The GOAT

Jon Jones has once again dismissed talk that Khabib Nurmagomedov is the GOAT following his win against Justin Gaethje at UFC 254, posting a video response to "all Khabib fans out there."

The current pound-for-pound No. 1 uploaded the selfie clip on Monday night, just days after the 33-year-old insisted the "numbers don't lie" in a Twitter rant following the Russian's victory in Abu Dhabi.

Jones, who defended his lightweight title eight times in his first reign as champion, dismissed the notion of Khabib being the greatest of all time.

"I'm talking to all you Khabib fans out there," said Jones. "Fifteen world titles to your guys' four, and you guys are really talking about who's the best fighter ever? You guys are joking, right?

"Fifteen to four. Are you guys' kidding me?"

Jones continued by suggesting GSP is the only person that could challenge his status.

"The only person that could possibly come back and challenge my record and what I've done in the UFC is possibly Georges St-Pierre." continued Jones.

"He would have to come back and win two championship fights to tie me, and I'm not even retired yet. I'm 33 years old. I've got a whole nother chapter to go through."

The former two-time UFC light heavyweight champion even claimed that Khabib has "just recently started fighting elite-level competition."

"You guys are nuts - I love you guys so much. I hope you guys all have a great day. Fifteen world championships to four.

"And all you guys who are going with this he's more dominant argument, the just recently started fighting elite-level competition. Could you imagine me against the No. 10 ranked guy?"

published at10 days ago

Following Khabib's win against Justin Gaethje on Saturday night, the Russian requested the No.1 spot in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings in his post-fight interview.

"There is only one thing I want from UFC, to put me as No 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world because I deserve it," he said inside the Octagon following his win.

But current No.1 pound-for-pound fighter Jones refuted Nurmagomedov's request.

On Twitter, he wrote: "Until I take that heavily crown, I grant you the spot. Enjoy Champ." and in another tweet, said: "15 world titles, numbers don't lie."
