After his dominating victory over Glover Teixeira in Baltimore to retain his title for a record seventh time, its time to take a look at what the Rochester native has accomplished and ask, is he the best ever? With the win over Teixeira, Jones took sole possession atop the light heavyweight division with 14 wins in the modern 205-pound era. It was his 11th straight win, also a division record and tied for third longest in UFC history behind former middleweight champion Anderson Silva (16) and former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre (12). No other light heavyweight champion has ever successfully defended the belt seven times. Only Silva (12) and St-Pierre (9) have more. Jones landed 138 significant strikes on Teixeira, the most ever in a light heavyweight title fight, and with 824 for his career he passed former champ Forrest Griffin (796) for the most in division history. Jones stuffed all five of Teixeiras takedown attempts, bringing his ccareer takedown defence rate to 96.

UFC president Dana White told reporters at the post-fight press conference that Jones "never looked better than he did tonight." And thats saying something for a guy who has beaten five former champions and whose only loss is a disqualification for illegal elbows. "I think it was the best performance of his career," White said. "Jones, I think that if he didnt 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." With each demolition - save for the five-round war with Gustafsson at UFC 165 - Jones continues to set new standards in his division and the UFC. With all the legends that have graced the octagon over the years, is Jon Jones the greatest of them all? As always, its Your! Call. ' ' '
