Rising UFC Superstar Chamzat Chimaev believes there is no other MMA fighter in the world who has come close to the size of Jon Jones inside the octagon.
Jon Jones has another name to add to the list of fighters who consider the former lightweight champion to be the greatest of all time. One of the greatest welterweight prospects, Khamzat Chimaev rates Jones at the highest level. Being a dominant fighter himself, Khamzat can only applaud the dominance of someone like Jones in his fighting career.
Khamzat and Darren Till appeared on the final episode of The Triple C & Schmo Show. When Henry asked Cejudo Chimaev who he thought was the greatest of all time, the Chechen fighter’s name was Jones.
“No one is like him. No one,” said Chimaev. “He beats a lot of guys, he beats the monsters. I would do the work, all my training with Alex [Gustafsson]I know how good he is and if Jon Jones could stop this guy, that’s scary.”

Khamzat Chimaev reveals what makes Jones special
Jones undoubtedly has the greatest résumé of any fighter in MMA. The fighter has the most title defenses in promotion history and is also the youngest champion. Jones has a record of 26-1-0 and his only loss comes from a disqualification. Chimaev believes that while Jones has come up with some great numbers, these alone don’t do justice to his size.
“He didn’t beat easy fighters, insanely good fighters with KO power and the ground was good, everything was like perfect. and [beat] ‘DC’ [Daniel Cormier] With the pressure and the wrestling he has good boxing, his mentality is like pressurize the fighters and kill them you know? He stopped that guy too.” Chimaev said on the show with Henry Cejudo.
Khamzat is training to face the top contender Gilbert Burns at UFC 273 and will most likely be aiming for a title shot after beating Burns. The fighter is 10-0 in his career and is one of the most exciting fighters the UFC octagon has ever seen. Watch his episode with Henry Cejudo, Darren Till and The Schmo below:
