Dana White sees John Jones as undefeated and Jones wants to revise the record books to strike Jones 26–1 to 1.
When it comes to the old-fashioned GOAT debate, where statistics play a major role, many fighters who are not standing in front of the numbers near Jones Jones.
Jones has achieved almost everything in the UFC, he is registered as the youngest champion of the promotion (at age 23, captured the light-heavyweight title), he has UFC history (11) Has the highest number of titles in the game, and without a single loss of 18 fights, the fighter holds the record for the longest undefeated streak.
Nevertheless, despite carrying the above distinctions, they are still not considered perfectionists. One might wonder what is the missing element? With 26 total wins, Jones holds a huge stature in MMA, but it is also a fact that the loss is 1 written under the column, which apparently makes his record exceptional but normal.

Dana White reveals that the UFC is trying to erase the only loss of John Jones’ career
Introducing an assumption that it was a disqualification-based loss and not a regular defeat, the UFC and Dana White are hellbent on removing unwanted data from John Jones’ account. But, it’s a daunting task, says Dana White in an interview ESPN.
“The boy never lost a fight. A loss on our record, we’re trying to get that reversed, “ White said. “It was at one time and one place in the Nevada State Athletic Commission when it was in the worst condition. It was the weakest commission ever in Nevada’s history. And the referee resumed that fight. And he disqualified John, which shouldn’t have happened either. So, hopefully, we can do that.

“I have worked hard to try and leave my record behind which is almost impossible to do. Which is crazy, it’s crazy that that thing doesn’t go away, ”White said. “At that time, the Nevada State Athletic Commission was the weakest. The man driving it was weak, the people who were involved in it were weak. Everyone was weak at that time. You should be able to look back and say let’s make this right. No good so far, I really worked hard to try and get that 1 off my record. But, it does not look good. “
So, should John Jones get any remorse over what the illegal shots matter, or consider the former verdict?
