When the goat discussion comes up, I always route back to Jon Jones, from watching him come up in the early years to seeing him get sponsorship from Nike, a huge milestone in MMA.
I even enjoyed watching the fights that he clearly lost. There is something special about Jones that makes him hugely talented but also bat shit crazy.
If you're like me, you've been watching from the side lines as prepares to go to heavyweight but, at the same time, wondering if he'll ever get there (what with he personal issue and not having a primary gym to train at anymore), and if he does, can he compete with the likes of Ngannou and Miocic?
As an athlete, I feel he can, and he will. How does everyone else feel about it?
