The 50 Best Pound-For-Pound Fighters Active In MMA Have Been Ranked By Fans
Jones, 33, is widely regarded as one of the finest MMA fighters in history and is currently top of UFC's official pound-for-pound rankings.
But fans over at Tapology have placed 'Bones' behind UFC lightweight champ Khabib in the rankings.
Khabib, who is second on UFC's official rankings, climbed to the top of ESPN's pound-for-pound list at the expense of Jones.
The 31-year-old Russian star was scheduled to face rival Tony Ferguson at UFC 249 in April.
But the 'Eagle' has been forced to pull out of the event after being stuck in his native homeland due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Ferguson also made the top 10 alongside the likes of fellow UFC stars Justin Gaethje and Israel Adesanya.
