Dana White, who switched from UFC president to CEO of the organization, responded to a question about which fighter who has become famous in the last 100 years he would trust to fight for his life.
“If you had to pick one fighter over a period of time in the last hundred years that would literally fight for your life, who would it be?” – White was asked.
“Jon Jones,” the UFC executive replied.
Jon Jones, 36, who officially vacated the UFC light heavyweight title in August 2020, successfully resumed his career after a three-year hiatus in March of this year, finishing Cyril Gagne by guillotine choke as early as the first round and winning the vacant UFC heavyweight championship belt.
On November 11 at UFC 295 in New York, the American will defend his title against his compatriot Stipe Miocic, and this fight could end his professional career.
