“I don’t know. I think if you keep winning the way that he wins, you might not have to like him, but you’ll definitely respect him.
“I say it all the time, look at what he’s accomplished. Look at what he’s done at such a young age. The guys he beat, the guys he’s gone through. And look at who he has in front of him, who is not a five-to-one underdog. After this he’s got [Alexander] Gustafsson and possibly [Daniel] Cormier. He hasn’t had an easy road and it’s not looking any easier for him, but those are the kind of fights that create your legacy. If this kid wins the next three fights, it’s hard not to call him the greatest light heavyweight ever. What do you call him after these next three fights?”
While talking to the media at today’s pre-fight scrum, Dana White, the UFC President, discussed the potential of his champion, Jon Jones.
Jones headlines UFC 172 this weekend and will attempt to stretch the UFC light-heavyweight title defense record one more notch with a win over Glover Teixeira.
