Randy Couture has explained how Jon Jones can prove that he’s the true GOAT (greatest of all-time).
This debate was brought back up when UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov choked out Justin Gaethje inside two rounds at UFC 254. Khabib retired after the fight and ended his career with a perfect 29-0 record.
Jones then lashed out and defended himself for his GOAT status. According to the former UFC light heavyweight and heavyweight champ, Jones needs to win the heavyweight title.
“Bones,” a former light heavyweight champ, has moved up to heavyweight. Here’s what Couture told TMZ Sports.
Randy Couture Shares How Jon Jones Can End GOAT Debate
“I think Jon Jones is right there. I think if Jon really wants to solidify himself as pound-for-pound, he needs to go up to heavyweight and he needs to take a shot at winning that title,” Couture said. “And, then that erases any argument that anybody could have. He’s a two-division champ. He’s been dominant in the light heavyweight division for a long time now.”
“I think that’s something that Jones needs to look at, and really solidly his legacy in the sport by going up and winning the heavyweight division and showing just how technically proficient and athletic he is.”
