Jon Jones has already taken aim at Khabib Nurmagomedov for the retired fighter wanting to be listed no. 1 on the UFC’s pound for pound fighters list.
Now that Nurmagomedov has officially been moved to the #1 spot on the list, Jones has again taken aim at the retired fighter through Twitter:
This is number one bullshit https://t.co/Mtkvyc32NZ— BONY (@JonnyBones) October 27, 2020
Jones, who was previously at the top spot, has now been demoted to the number two spot, but he’ll most likely regain the top spot in quick fashion as Nurmagomedov retired after his latest title defense at UFC 254. Jones recently relinquished the UFC light heavyweight title so he can move up a weight class to heavyweight, but no divisional debut date has been set at this time.
There has been no comment yet from Nurmagomedov after becoming recognized as the #1 ranked pound for pound fighter in the UFC.
