UFC 140 Results: Dana White Calls Jon Jones Number Two Pound-For-Pound

In the UFC 140 post-event discussions, we've had several people talk about Jon Jones' status as an elite fighter. Yesterday, I claimed that Jones is the best fighter on Earth. It seems that Dana White isn't willing to go quite that far, but he is willing to put Jones at number two.

Check out the video:


From the video:

"Number two...I mean, I don't know how you deny the guy anymore. He's literally walked through everybody. He fought four times this year, probably the nastiest schedule in the history of the company. He's incredible, man. The guy is, I hate to talk too much about it...like nobody's gonna hear this (laughs)...because he's so young, you don't wanna put that kind of stuff in a guy's head who is that young but he's walking through serious, serious guys and bustin' 'em up bad."

Of course, it's worth noting that White recently put Frankie Edgar at number two behind Anderson Silva. So it would appear that Dana White's rankings go: 1. Silva, 2. Jones, 3. Edgar. I'm curious if he would consider Cruz and/or Aldo to be ahead of Georges St. Pierre as well.
