Jon Jones on ESPN Sportscenter: Honored to be considered number three pound-for-pound (Video)

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones hit Bristol, Conn., to rap with the folks at ESPN's Sportscenter on his recent successful title defense against Lyoto Machida at UFC 140 this past Sat., Dec. 10, 2011, in Toronto.

It's a short video but there was an interesting takeaway. Here's "Bones'" response when asked if he's the best pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC:

"You know, a lot of people are really starting to rank me up there in the top three of the UFC as a whole and that's a great honor. The two guys that are ahead of me are Georges St. Pierre and Anderson Silva and they've just simply been in the game a lot longer than I have."

There are surely those who will call him cocky for the last comment, and that may or may not be so. But there's no denying his confidence is at an all time high and why shouldn't it be? The dude just finished up what was quite possibly the greatest single year fight campaign in the history of MMA.

Here's my question for you, Maniacs. Is Jon Jones the number three pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC? Or would you rank him lower? Or higher, even?
