Jon Jones reacts to finishing second behind Demetrious Johnson in UFC's pound-for-pound rankings

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Prior to Jose Aldo's knockout loss to Conor McGregor at UFC 194 (see it again here), the former featherweight king was sitting at the top of the pound-for-pound rankings.

Now, the most updated list shows "Junior" falling to No. 6 while Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson occupies the top spot. That means Jon Jones -- the former longtime owner of the No. 1 spot -- is still in second place.

"Bones," however, doesn't mind being runner up to an amazing fighter like "Mighty Mouse."

As for Aldo, well, I'm sure he could care less about losing the top spot, as he's always stated that the mythical pound-for-pound list is "useless" in the grand scheme of things.

Jones will soon have the chance to reclaim top honors, as a win over current light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier will be good enough reason to sway voters in his favor.

But at the end of the day, it's simply a matter of opinion... right?
