    100% for Jones so far....lol.

    But seriously, it’s Jones and it’s laughable to even have a better poll.

    Jon Jones made the most stacked division look like it had one good fighter at the top, not to mention he made Cormier legit cry, knocking him out spectacularly in the second fight, not to mention outwrestling him in the first.

    Jon Jones is a generational fighter. Cormier, in my opinion, isn't all that. People give him way too much credit for two way thing. Better than Conor's, but not all that, because for me, this guy is a heavyweight, cut to lhw, got his ass kicked twice, then became a champ by beating someone else, then moved up back again. It would have been impressive if this guy was LHW and then moved up to HW and became a champ, which no one have ever done in the history, even Randy moved down then back up.

    I love Cormier, lovely guy, great great fighter, just was born in a wrong time and wrong place to hold a candle next to Jon Jones, who isn't easy to like, but i don't agree with DAna White at all, but one thing I do is, the greatest talent we've ever seen enter the octagon.

    DC has the better resume IMO, he's a 2 division champion with a bunch of title defenses and never got popped for PEDs multiple times or had suspicious test results like Jones did the first time he fought DC. I'm not sure if Jones was ever not on PEDs in MMA.

    DC. JJ "may" be the better fighter but was caught popping and hasn't accomplished what DC has so from a technical aspect, DC. I think that is what you were asking. JJ probably would be on talent alone but in my mind has squandered that. As mentioned in the above post, DC has the better resume, as well.

    Probably 3 or more times, The first DC fight Jones had really weird test results that varied 80% and his testosterone levels were 10% of what is normal. The second time he popped before the DC fight and it got cancelled and the last time they fought he tested positive after the fight.

    Better career is Cormier as he hasn't f'd up as many times as Jones and is viewed as a better person. To me it's hard to rate Jones because of his failed tests.

    DC.

    DC has only 1 fight he intentionally eye poked in (I think), which makes me not acknowledge the W. Almost whole Jon's resume is in question.

    Career? As of right now, taking everything into account, it's DC imho.

    Yeah just wanted to go with what's been proven before the Jones huggers try to dox me over "false claims".
