Overall, Jones’ numbers show how dominant he was in the light heavyweight division and it makes a good case for him as the undisputed GOAT of the UFC’s 205-pound weight class. When he was active, Jones was also the No.1 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC. Although he’s surrendered that title now, it’s due to a lack of activity. UFC President Dana White also considers Jones as the greatest mixed martial artist ever.
