Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has faced some of the toughest and most talented fighters inside the octagon. With his only loss having been a disqualification due to illegal elbow strikes, “Bones” Jones quickly made his way into the conversation as possibly being one of the greatest fighters of all time.
Speaking to ESPN, UFC President Dana White has gone on to call Jon Jones the “greatest talent” in the sport.
“That’s the question. And that is a great question. If he can come back and win the title after everything he has been through, it would be tough to deny he would be the greatest ever. We can talk about how Jon Jones could have been the greatest, and if he comes back and does this it is hard to deny.”
“He’s the greatest talent we have ever seen.”
