The UFC president wasted no time in answering when asked who's the greatest UFC fighter of all time, revealing Jones as the GOAT.
'Bones' has cleaned out the UFC light-heavyweight division, defending his title against some of the biggest names in the sport.
He has since vacated his belt as he plans a run at the UFC heavyweight division with a fight against the winner of Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou II on the cards.
White then chose UFC lightweight king Nurmagomedov as the best fighter at this present moment despite his retirement stance.
Of course, the undefeated superstar walked away from the UFC after beating Justin Gaethje last October.
White continued, saying Khamzat Chimaev is the UFC fighter he's most excited about in 2021.
The Russian-born Swedish fighter rose to prominence last year after producing heroics on 'Fight Island' before starching Gerald Meerschaert in just 17-seconds.
And White said that surging UFC middleweight contender Kevin Holland has been the biggest surprise.
Holland reeled off five impressive UFC wins in 2020, becoming a huge player in the division after stopping 'Jacare' Souza.
