This may have been the biggest murderers row in MMA history. And that's what puts him above Aldo, that and he's been ranked as the #1 P4P for the last year.
But really those guys are no better than guys like Mendes and Edgar, and most are far smaller when compared with Jones. Aldo has more defences, with a longer reign, against men his own size, and hasnt arguably lost a fight like Jones. Rampage still has name value but he wasnt a big win when he fought Jones. And Machida is about the same size as Jonny Hendricks, and Rashad isnt much bigger
