Dana White: Jon Jones is #1P4P, Barao is #2
With Anderson Silva out of the picture, there’s a debate about who the world’s most dangerous man is, pound-for-pound.
According to UFC President Dana White, that designation has been secured by Jon Jones following his seventh straight title defense against Glover Teixeira.
His words: (Via MMAjunkie.com)
“I love watching Renan Barao fight; I’m a big Renan Barao fan,. What don’t you love about Renan Barao? He goes out and he finishes and he wrecks people. I’m still going back and forth with the Jon Jones-Renan Barao thing, but I think without a doubt Renan is the No. 2 ranked.
“After Jones’ last performance, he looked so damn good, and he’s just buzzsawed through all the big names at 205. It’s really hard (to not give him the No. 1 spot), and even before that, I was still calling Renan the No. 1 pound-for-pound, but he is without a doubt the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter. He goes in there, no matter who he faces, he goes in there to finish him, and that’s what he does. I love guys that go in and annihilate people, and that’s what he does.”
