Dana White: Jon Jones is #2 Pound-for-Pound behind Anderson SilvaPosted on December 12, 2011, 10:31 AM by Anton Gurevich
UFC President Dana White shared the latest edition of his Pound-for-Pound rankings, placing Jon Jones on #2 behind Anderson "The Spider" Silva. White admitted that Jones' run in 2011 was "one of the nastiest in the UFC history" in combination with the competition he faced inside the Octagon. According to the White, at the age of twenty-four Jones is yet to reach his full potential, which could see him becoming the new Pound-for-Pound king for years to come.
It's interesting to note that White's previous #2 was Frankie "The Answer" Edgar, who will defend his title against Ben Henderson at UFC 144 in Japan.
