Jon Jones has an issue with Dana White calling Khabib Nurmagomedov the GOAT.

On Saturday, Nurmagomedov retired from MMA with a perfect 29-0 record after making quick work of Justin Gaethje at UFC 254.

During UFC 254’s postfight press conference, UFC president Dana White went on to call Nurmagomedov the GOAT for easily beating Gaethje while dealing with a serious foot injury.

“Apparently, he was in the hospital, He broke his foot. Three weeks ago. So he has two broken toes and a bone in his foot that’s broken or something like that. That’s what his corner was telling me. Never told anybody, walking around. I mean he is one of the toughest human beings on the planet.”

“He is the No. 1 pound-for-pound fighter in the world, and you seriously have to start putting him up there at GOAT status with whoever else you think is the GOAT,”

Jones, who many consider the greatest MMA fighter of all-time despite his controversial past, took issue with White declaring Khabib the GOAT.
