White: UFC 172 was Jones' best performance ever


Jon Jones was super impressive at UFC 172, dominating a super tough Glover Teixeira, and according to Dana White, he was the best he's ever looked:

"I think it was the best performance of his career," White said in the post-fight press conference about the 26-year old Jones. "Obviously Las Vegas didn’t give Glover Teixeira the respect that he deserved as a 6-to-1 dog. Jones, I think that if he didn’t prove it in the [Alexander] Gustafsson fight, he definitely proved it in this fight -- Jones has a chin. He evolves every time he fights, he comes out and puts on a clinic and does new things. 

"But I also thought leading up to this fight, Jones was different also. He just seems to be…he was the youngest light heavyweight champion ever, but he’s becoming a man right in front of everybody. He’s growing up in and outside of the Octagon, and I thought he’s never looked better than he did tonight."

What pisses me off is that Dana passed up on the 170 Jones in Askren.Just because Dana didn't like Askren.Imagine if Jon Jones never got his chance to shine, because he wasn't Dana's "type of guy"Ridiculous.

He's putting too much of the UFC's future on a cheating asshole. No more GSP, Silva, etc.It will come back to bite him.

I felt the decimation of Shogun Rua was more impressive than tex mex but to each his own.

I have no problem with Hyping Jones after that performance. As long as Gus get's his rematch promptly without more bullshit.

He was also asked by Helwani if he felt that Werdum played if safe towards the end and that was his response ^^^

That statement is half true. Dana did say he felt like Werdum took his foot off the gas a little to get the win...never discredited him IMO. That was after he said Werdum looked fantastic and Browne looked bad.

Or he's just praising him because he is incredibly talented and gets better every fight...He has praised Werdum and countless others in the past after their wins as well.
