UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones is the greatest fighter in mixed martial arts, but he is far from the most popular.

At UFC 172 in Baltimore Jones heard an unfamiliar sound. As Jones walked to the cage he did the Squirrel Dance, popularized by retired Baltimore Raven Ray Lewis, and the crowd exploded. Throughout the night he had the crowd.

Squirrel Dance Off

"It was just great to have the crowd on my side again," said Jones at the UFC 172 post fight press conference. "It has been a long time, since I've had cheers. I figured it would be that way so I said let me really embrace this, let me really give this audience some entertainment. So it was just great. I was living it up. I figured Ray Lewis would be there, a lot of Ravens would be there, so I was just playing it up, and practiced that dance all day, and aced it, I hear. I haven't seen it yet. Ray was happy and, yeah, I'm happy."

"The people of Baltimore, they still Arthur, they still respect him a lot. Arthur gets a great reception here… It's great to see that the love is still there. And obviously it trickled into my world, too - I got a lot of respect, and a lot of cheers, which made me feel amazing. I really do appreciate it. I mean the boos I've learned to live with, but it's so rewarding to get some love and respect for once."

Jon Jones is kinda like Tito 2.0. Really cocky and arrogant, but Jones actually fights all the top fighters in his class.

I am always curious how people's mind's work.

Who are the fighters outside of the UFC that are potentially the best fighter in mixed martial arts?

Let's be frank here, they were cheering for Jon because he was the American in the fight not because they have some deep love and respect for the man.

Hell, if it was Bisping in there against a Brazilian he might've been cheered like mad too.

Is this like the guy announcing free pizza on the PA system, getting cheers? and thinking the cheers were for him? legit question

It came across as crowd pandering cheers more so than "yay Jon is here" cheers. I mean the dude came out, LHW champ doing the Raven's dance to the world, in an arena filled with Ravens fans, while being a Raven legend's brother. "gosh darnit they really love me!" lol. They might, but I'd think it's more Raven related vs who he is

Why is he the greatest fighter in MMA?

You act like this is a fact, and i can't think of another champ that uses as many dirty tactics.

The only fighter that hears fewer cheers than Jones is Matt Hamill.

This isn't fighter bashing because Jones actually poked out Matt Hammill's ears when they were children. Phone Post 3.0

Jones won me as a fan in his last fight. His happy go lucky personality shone through as well. I think that's what got me. He finally looked like he let loose and was having fun. Anyone who can continue to hate on this kid has personal deep rooted issues. He was kinda phony with his holier than thou and subtle disguised arrogance before, but I don't blame him for being a little cocky. The guy is a monster. He has earned that right at this point. Also I think he truly wants to be a good role model which is why he looks like he is trying too hard sometimes. Let the kid grow up. He found himself in that last fight. Keep grinding Jones. Also, I really want to see a Anthony Johnson vs Jon Jones matchup in the near future. I think this reborn AJ might solve the puzzle, and I wouldn't have a favorite. Two very talented monsters.

Im not saying he is the greatest fighter. But he is among them

Glover
Gus
Rampage
Rashad
Lyoto
Shogun
Sonnen
Vitor

He finished 5 of those 8 guys. Only 1 of the remaining 3 even won a round

Honestly this sport is so unpredictable it's kind of hard to answer that. Phone Post 3.0
