    Anybody STILL doubting this guy needs to have their head examined.

    It was a very good fight overall, and Cormier DID bring it in the earlier rounds.

    But JBJ is just a nightmare match-up for anyone at this stage. He has SO many weapons and attacks that are just very difficult to prepare for and defend against. He is a complete mixed martial artist, and it showed last night.

    I don't like the guy as a person. Last night his behavior even post fight was beyond douchey. BUT - At this stage, no one can shut him up, nor "solve the puzzle" that is Jon Bones Jones.

    Love him or hate him, this guy is the best fighter in MMA right now. He makes great fighters look ordinary.

    He needs a more solid win against Gus, who was actually his size, imo.

    He's the best mixed martial artist ever, not really close.

    I think he's the best ever LHW for sure.

    If he moves to heavyweight we'll find out if he's P4P GOAT.

    Aldo is the dude who could really push him, especially if he goes up to 155 and wins there. That'd be nuts.

    P4P is a stupid list

    But Jon Jones might be on top of the MMA world

    Pettis and Aldo are both more well rounded.

    I never doubted his fighting ability. Two things were cemented about Jones last night

    1. He'll go down as, "scum of the Earth"
    2. He'll go down as one of the greatest

    It's hard to argue this anymore when looking at the people he's fought and beaten.

    How so? Aldo is close but doesn't have the offensive wrestling. Pettis got grinded by featherweight Guida, fuq outta here.

    No, at least not P4P. Aldo fights guys his own size or bigger and smashes them. He's shown a more diverse skill set (finishes from kicks, knees, ground n pound, submissions, one-strike knockouts, wars of attrition, and has been on top of his division as long as Jones).

    Jon is clearly one of the greatest fighters today and of all time, but I do feel like he's got a couple tough tests left (I guess all fighters always do... although Aldo really just has McGregor, and that's if you prefer to see Conor get the shot instead of fighting guys Aldo has already beaten like Edgar, Swanson, Mendes, Lamas, KZ, etc.)

    But yeah... I think skill-wise and P4P (which I know, P4P doesn't exist, blah blah), you got Pettis and Aldo up there as well. Both are very vicious and dominant fighters who have beaten a wide variety of opponents.

    MM is to the point of doing rematches now as well.

    People kind of just forgot how nuts Aldo is because of a few decisions. Honestly, talking shit to Aldo is probably the last thing you want to do. Give him a motivation to kick your legs into oblivion, oh lordy.

    Oh my god that dude is so fucking annoying.

    "I'm the greatest. I'm the best ever. I'll own 3 divisions. I'll take his head clean off. Clean off.They call me mystic meg. I'm the best ever. I will beat him, round one. Knockout. Within two minutes..."

    30 minuites later...


    "I'm the greatest. I'm the best ever. I'll own 3 divisions. I'll take his head clean off. Clean off. They call me mystic meg, call me now for your free psychic reading. I'm the best ever. I will beat him, round one. Knockout. Within two minutes..."

    Like for real dude... we heard you the first... errr, second... err third.... fuck 50th time in the past 10 minutes? Give it a fucking rest.
