Dana White Believes Jon Jones Is The MMA GOAT Over Khabib Nurmagomedov

UFC CEO Dana White has named his greatest fighter of all-time.

Last year, Daniel Cormier said he believed Khabib Nurmagomedov is the GOAT because he did everything clean unlike Jon Jones.

“He made no mistakes. People speak of Jon Jones being undefeated. Well, he made a mistake. He did an up-and-down elbow, right? Khabib made no mistakes.

“Even in dominance, he never messed up. He got to 29-0. There’s no one like him. I just saw him in the back and I told him I said ‘hey everybody’s crying but guys we got to have the most dominant champ the UFC has ever seen so cry now and then we celebrate later.’ Just a phenomenal career,”

Despite Cormier’s comments, White believes Jones is the GOAT UFC fighter and Khabib lost out on that honor due to retiring early.

“Nobody can debate who’s the greatest of all time. It’s absolutely, positively Jon Jones. He’s never been beaten in the octagon, ever.

“I think that Khabib had the potential to be in the running for [GOAT], he just didn’t stick around.”
