Jon Jones reveals his top 5 greatest UFC fighters, makes surprise omission

Jon Jones reveals his top 5 greatest UFC fighters, makes surprise omissionDAZN

Jon Jones has named his top five greatest UFC fighters of all time, but there is a huge name that is missing from the two-time UFC light heavyweight champion's list. 

Jones is considered one of the best to ever step inside the Octagon, but when asked by RMC Sport to reveal his list, he decided to include himself, but not include Conor McGregor. 

"I would say - if I'm allowed - I would say myself, Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and Jose Aldo. Those are my favourites at least," Jones said. 

“I love what Khabib represents. We’ve had our differences in the past, I’ve made some quotes about him. But there’s never really been a real beef.

"I love the way he carries himself as a Muslim, I love the way he represents his country. I love the businessman that he is.

"He just seems like a stand-up guy, gives back to others. He’s a stand-up guy, an admirable man. I appreciate his existence.”

Jones returns to action on Saturday night at UFC 285 when he takes on Ciryl Gane for the vacant UFC heavyweight title in what will be his first fight with the promotion for three years. 

Fans in Germany, Austria and Italy can watch UFC events live on DAZN, and DAZN subscribers in most parts of the world can also enjoy a multitude of Professional Fighters League (PFL) events live, including the launch of the PFL Europe series beginning March 25 in Newcastle.
