Morning Report: Joe Rogan: Heavyweight title made Jon Jones ‘plain’ as GOAT: ‘Nobody can f*** with that’

Jon Jones’ return to motion received’t quickly be forgotten.

At simply 23 years previous, Jones made UFC historical past by changing into the youngest champion in promotion historical past, claiming the sunshine heavyweight title. Dominating his technique to a third-round TKO win over the then-champion Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, “Bones” had solely served up a glimpse of what was to come back.

All 15 fights since that March 2011 coronation have been for a title and Jones has received all of them, excluding the no-contest in his rematch vs. Daniel Cormier. UFC 285 earlier this month noticed Jones finish a three-year hiatus and at last transfer up in weight as he mentioned he deliberate on doing over a decade prior. The win noticed him slice by way of French heavyweight staple Ciryl Gane with a first-round guillotine choke, incomes him a second divisional title in his profession and shutting down the best of all-time dialog for many. Amongst these making that declare is longtime UFC commentator Joe Rogan who has known as Jones’ profession from the beginning in August 2008 at UFC 87.

“Jon Jones is the GOAT,” Rogan mentioned on the Joe Rogan Experience. “Now, it’s plain. There was all this debate till he submitted Ciryl Gane and have become the heavyweight champion. Nobody can f*** with that.

“The Francis [Ngannou] combat uncovered one facet of his (Gane’s) recreation that you just’re by no means gonna beat Jon in, and that’s the wrestling. Then all people mentioned, ‘Effectively, he didn’t know that Francis was gonna wrestle him.’ Given, Francis is just not the caliber of wrestler and even within the realm of Jon Jones. Jon Jones has been wrestling since he was 12 years previous. He took down Daniel Cormier who’s an Olympic-level wrestler. There may be not a man on this planet that may say that you may begin wrestling at 29 years previous. You’d must be the freakiest of freak athletes to compete with that man.”

Going ahead, there will not be a lot left for Jones at this stage as his present focus is reserving his first title protection in opposition to the previous two-time champion and divisional nice, Stipe Miocic. Nothing is official but, however the matchup is hoped to come back to fruition for Worldwide Combat Week 2023 on July 8 in Las Vegas at UFC 290.

Whereas Jones’ document isn’t a wonderfully clear 29-0 because it very properly might be, the UFC Corridor of Famer has the aforementioned no-contest and a disqualification in opposition to Matt Hamill on his resume. These had been the outcomes of Jones’ personal doing, and for Rogan, shouldn’t put him beneath others within the dialog with equally stable arguments or perfection, whether or not in resume or efficiency.

“You’ll be able to’t by chance beat Jon Jones,” Rogan mentioned. “He’s GOAT over all people now. Khabib [Nurmagomedov] is within the dialog, “Mighty Mouse” [Demetrious Johnson] is in that dialog, too.

“The one downside is — apart from [Henry] Cejudo and a pair different guys like [Joseph] Benavidez, he (Johnson) was not coping with guys that had been of the caliber of fellows that Jon Jones was going through. He was going through the elite of the elite and he by no means f****** misplaced even when he was doing coke and he wasn’t even coaching. That’s how goddamn good Jon Jones is.”
