Jon Jones on his top 5 UFC fighters

Jon Jones and Cyril Gane will have a fight in seven days. Many are impatiently waiting for this match, which will be one of the biggest. With the departure of Ngannou from the UFC, there was an empty spot for the belt. Jon Jones has not been on the UFC scene for some time, and now he is maximally motivated to take the title, and be declared "the greatest ever".

In an interview with RMC Sport, Jones talked about his favorite fighters. What is interesting is that he put himself first. "As for my top five. Let's see. If I am allowed, I would put myself first. Then Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre, Khabib Nurmagomedov and Jose Aldo.

Those are my five favourites,'' Jon Jones told RMC Sport.

Jon Jones: I like everything Khabib promotes

Jones has a great opinion about Khabib Nurmagomedov, who has been retired for a long time. Although they once had disagreements and did not agree on certain things, Jones respects Khabib as a man, his practice of religion, and the way he represents his country.

"I like everything Khabib promotes. We had some disagreements in the past, I said some things about him. But there was never really any bad blood between us. I always liked how he behaves like a true Muslim, I also like how he represents his country.

I also like him as a businessman. He seems like a decent guy, good to everyone. He is a proper guy and an admirable man. I'm glad he exists,'' -Jones said about Khabib Nurmagomedov. Many believe that Jones will have one of the most difficult tasks in his career, given that Gane is currently one of the best in the UFC. We will see how he prepared for this big match, which will probably be full of excitement.
