Jon Jones Reacts To Khabib Nurmagomedov's Pound-For-Pound Push After UFC 254 Win

Jon Jones insists the "numbers don't lie" in response to Khabib Nurmagomedov's pound-for-pound push following his dominant victory at UFC 254.

He walked away from the UFC after recording his 29th professional MMA victory and requested the No.1 spot in the UFC pound-for-pound rankings.

"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 refutes Nurmagomedov's request.

On Twitter, he wrote: "Until I take that heavily crown, I grant you the spot. Enjoy Champ."

In another tweet, he wrote: "15 world titles, numbers don't lie."
