    Khabib has been more dominant but Jones had to fight much harder competition basically up until he beat Gus for the second time. Two easy fights (on paper) don’t equal him not deserving #1. Khabib has fought 1 BJJer with mediocre guard game and other than that only strikers.

    Oh look we got a title defence worshipper here, guess what if Tony was given a title shot 11 fights ago he'd have 10 defences by now.

    Khabib is obviously #1 P4P fighter. Jones barely snuck buy a middleweight and Khabib is smashing and tapping out his opponents. Khabib getting stronger every year while Jones looks weaker. He gives a couple of good performances Gus and DC second fghts and some not so great fights like OSP and Santos.

    Same here. Anderson did beat the guys put in front of him. (except Chael)

    For Jones, yeah on here you have to both win in a dominant fashion, and the opponent has to be "worthy".

    At some point you run out of those type of fighters. MM is a great example of that.

    Khabib is a stud , but his resume isn’t even close to Bones

    Difference being, apart from Jon still having more even under that scenario, that Tony has literally only ever fought 2 top 5 fighters in his entire career. Jon did that just between March-July this year.

    I think it's more to do with Cormier and him challenging the whole of AKA.

    But weirdos on here like to make up agendas about men they don't know

    Yes, it's all relative. If a division only has "c" level talent and no "a"level champ it's"super competitive and entertaining". If you have a division with an "a+" champ that runs roughshod over every one he/she fights regardless of how good they are its "weak division".

    Headlining 5 round title fights against Top 5 competition every single fight is way more pressure and harder to do than fighting 3 round fights while on a win streak against Top 10 and 15 guys. This is one reason why title fights matter.

    As long as Dana is running the show, khabib will never be numba 1

    Even when he smashes Ferguson.

    Lol if you try to compare the top 15 LHW vs top 15 LW, LW is the most stacked division in the planet. The bums from 5-15 can't hold the jockstraps of their counterparts at LW.

    That's all additional stuff anyway, the moment Jones popped multiple times should rule him out of anything if you have standards.

    Jones wasn't fighting the Top 15 at LHW, he was fighting the top 5 guys in 5 round title fights for over half his career. He's fought in 14 title fights, going undefeated. That's more title fight wins than Khabib has fights in the UFC.

    You knew exactly what I meant but you obviously have Jones fingers so far in your eye sockets. Jones defending his belt against such killers like Santos, Gus, Teixeira, OSP, Sonnen, Smith and OSP, what an absolute murderers row, that's 7 easy defences right there off the top of my head. No.11 Al Iaquinta is better P4P then anyone not named DC at LHW top 10, it's a shit division and you clearly love a psychopath that's all there is to it. Jones has proven anyway he cannot lose no matter what his opponent do, the judges are with him like glue, case in point Santon and Gus 1. At lease 1 judge gave Santon the fight though...

    khalabib also doesn't have the age, height, and reach advantage against everyone. Or picograms.

    I like both guys as fighters but until recently Bones was far superior in terms of 'a must see fight'. The S**T he could pull on the spot was amazing and a masterclass on fight iq, eye pokes/oblique kicks be damned. Not sure Jones still has that extra gear (lack of gear?) which makes him imo, vulnerable and much more beatable and def not as exciting.

    Khabib pretty much always fights solid, improving his standup game to the point he can kinda just play with his victim, sometimes even dominating until he decides enough is enough and latches on like a pitbull on a poodle.

    2 great fighters really , in very different ways but would have to say JJ still owns the highlight reel footage
