Nurmagomedov’s dominant submission victory over Justin Gaethje in their UFC Lightweight Championship unification matchup at UFC 254 in October 2020, most of them in the Mixed Martial Arts community have been hailing The Eagle as the MMA “Greatest Of All Time”.

 

“Dana White emphasized that Jon Jones is the GOAT.”

UFC President Dana White weighed on the ongoing MMA “Greatest Of All Time” Debate that has put Khabib Nurmagomedov and Jon Jones against each other.

On the contrary, certain sections of the MMA community have opposed this claim, stating that it’s Jon Jones rather than Nurmagomedov who is the greatest Mixed Martial Arts fighter of all time. In the aftermath of Nurmagomedov’s spectacular triumph over Gaethje.

“Dana White has always asserted that the recently retired fighter is the No.1 pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC today.”

In reality, many fans and experts have promised that Khabib Nurmagomedov could be the greatest fighter to have competed in the sport of MMA. Speaking to the media at a recent scrum, Dana White reiterated that Khabib Nurmagomedov is currently the No.1 pound-for-pound fighter in MMA.

Dana White has lately been incredibly vocal about the unparalleled achievements and exceptional performances put forth by UFC Lightweight kingpin Khabib Nurmagomedov and former UFC Light Heavyweight titlist Jon Jones. That said, a feeling of uncertainty surrounds Nurmagomedov’s MMA future. On the other hand, The Eagle declared his retirement from the game after beating Gaethje in UFC 254.

On the flip side, Dana White as well as many combat sports experts have opined that Nurmagomedov may return for yet another fight so as to take his MMA record to 30-0.

Meanwhile, Jon Jones has emphasized that he, rather than Khabib Nurmagomedov, is the rightful owner of this title of MMA GOAT. Jon Jones last competed at UFC 247 in February of this year, defeating Dominick Reyes via unanimous decision in a closely contested bout to the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship.

Jones subsequently vacated the UFC 205-pound belt and is now set to move up to the Heavyweight division.
