TMZ asked Dana White who he thought was the greatest UFC fighter of all-time and his answer was bold.
“Jon Jones, but Khabib [Nurmagomedov] is the best right now,” he said.
Dana White Says Jon Jones Is Greatest UFC Fighter Ever https://t.co/51HfjZOmyq— TMZ (@TMZ) January 30, 2021
Khabib sits at 29-0 after retiring, but the eye test showed he’s on another level. His beatdown of Justin Gaethje by submission proved that no one has any answer for the guy. Usually G.O.A.T debates spark egos, and we’re really hoping this exchange leads up to a fight.
Could you imagine? Jon Jones’ unmatched boxing abilities toe-to-toe with Khabib’s grapple? Dana White knows exactly what he’s doing by the way. Saying Khabib is the best fighter in the world right now without solidifying his legacy as all-time GOAT is a challenge to continue building his legacy. Maybe we do get a mega-fight? Whoever wins surely etches their name as UFC’s G.O.A.T.
