In a recent interview with ESPN.co.uk, UFC President Dana White explained who he thinks the three best fighters in MMA are, in order.
Q: "GSP, is he still your number 2?"
Dana White: "[Georges St-Pierre] is my number two.
"Jon Jones is getting there. I think Jon Jones proved a lot to a lot of people in that fight (vs. Vitor Belfort). Staying in that armbar, popping out of it like he wasn't even in an armbar, continuing to fight the way that he did, kept himself together mentally. He came a long way.
"My thing is, I don't ever give Jon Jones the huge ... these other guys, Anderson Silva's been doing it since 2005 in the UFC, Georges St. Pierre's been doing it forever. Jon Jones has been on a tear for a year and a half. He's had some problems.
"Time will tell. We'll see what happens, where he ends up. At the rate he's going, he's on his way to number one and possibly going down as one of the greatest ever, too."
Q: "Do you see him one day surpassing Anderson Silva?"
DFW: "He so young, that's the thing. If Anderson Silva wasn't the freak of nature that he is, and the guys's still 38 years old doing what he is doing.
"But Jon Jones has... forever."
