Dana White Calls Jon Jones “The Greatest Talent”

Dana White Compliments Jon Jones: “He’s The Greatest Talent We’ve Ever Seen”


Jon Jones has always been one of the most dominant fighters in the UFC. His only defeat to Matt “The Hammer” Hamill happened on December 5, 2009, at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale. But it was Jones’ mistake – he landed illegal 12-6 elbows. “Bones” was winning the match and did a completely unnecessary thing. Also, Jon has never been knocked out or submitted throughout his whole MMA career.

Jones’ career came to a halt due to his bad decisions. He was stripped of the title for the first time due to hit and run incident. The second time, “Bones” was positive on letrozone and clomiphene. The third time, he earned one of the most beautiful KO victories over Daniel Cormier on July 29, 2017, at UFC 214. But he was suspended when his test samples were positive on Turinabol. The result was overturned to no contest.

Jon Jones slipped through with a reduced 15-month ban, following “substantial assistance rule”. DC accused him of snitching, but Jon claimed he had nothing to do with it.

Jones’ penalty finally expired on October 28, 2018. Dana White wasn’t interested in letting “Bones” headline UFC 230. One of the most controversial fighters is slated to fight Alexander Gustafsson. The two will face at the main event of UFC 232 on December 29, 2018, for the UFC Light Heavyweight Interim title. DC will be stripped of the title as soon as they touch gloves. Let’s remember, “Bones” defeated “Viking” at UFC 165 on September 21, 2013, in one of the best matches in the history of UFC.

Dana White praised Jon Jones in a recent interview, calling him “the greatest ever”. White stated that it would be very hard to deny if “Bones” defeats “Mauler” after all he’s been through. (via

“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,” said Dana White speaking to ESPN. “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.”

Jon Jones defeated many legendary fighters. He was better than Daniel Cormier, Chael Sonnen, Vitor Belfort, Lyoto Machida, and other superstars. Dana White also had few more good words for “Bones”.

“He’s the greatest talent we have ever seen,” White said.

Do you support Dana White? Do you really think “Bones” is the greatest fighter ever?
