Joe Rogan believes Jon Jones is the greatest fighter of all time.
If there is one man who has seen more UFC fights close up than anyone else in the world it might be Joe Rogan. For years, Rogan has been the voice of UFC. He has been cage-side for many of the greatest UFC battles in history. He also hosts a podcast where he can speak to fighters one-on-one and get the inside scoop. Now he is sure without a doubt that the greatest fighter of all time is Jon Jones.
Rogen has mentioned “The Greatest of All Time” aka GOAT before but now he is claiming that undoubtedly it is Jones. He mentioned this on a recent episode of his podcast The Joe Rogan Experience.
“Jon Jones is the GOAT, it’s undeniable. There was all this debate until he submitted Cyril Gane and became the heavyweight champion,” he said. “No one can f–k with that.”
Joe Rogan is putting Jon Jones over Khabib Nurmagomedov on the GOAT list
Rogan does a great job commentating on UFC fights. His knowledge is second to none and he has become the voice for fight fans over the last decade or so. He has now stated the fact that he believes Jon Jones, the newest UFC heavyweight, is the greatest. Rogan explains what it is that makes Jones so great and how his last performance solidified this point.
“There are human beings that have different temperaments and different minds and different mentalities and a ruthless competitive drive that’s almost terrifying to the ordinary person. That’s Jon Jones. Jon Jones is a bad guy who’s trying to be a good guy,” he said. “He’s GOAT over everybody, now. Khabib is in the conversation but Mighty Mouse is in the conversation too… He was facing the elite of the elite even when he was f–king doing coke and he wasn’t even training. That how good Jon Jones is.”
Jones took three years off before making his return to the heavyweight division. Many were curious to see how he would look in a new weight class and having gained so much weight. He seemed to have no problem defeating Ciryl Gane and he’s ready to take on his next challenge in former champions Stipe Miocic.
