And I would argue that sure those are "notable" wins for Jones, but lets be real a minute.we can certainly say that, Jones has finished legends and beaten the best class of lhw fighters of our generation.
DJ has beaten some good names but the resumes are not even close, even the resumes of the fighter they have beaten.
Jones notable wins - Bader, Evans, DC, Machida, Shogun, Rampage, Glover Teixeira, Vitor Belfort
MM notable wins - Cejudo, John Dodson, Joseph Benavidez, Ian McCall, Miguel Torres,Ali Bagautino
if Johnson had Cruz and TJ on his resume again that is a different story and then we could be talking about him as the best p4p, as it stands now i would have Cruz before Johnson.
Bader has never been considered a championship caliber LHW
Evans' two best wins came 4 years before Jones and looked like a shell of that guy
Same could be said for Shogun and Rampage. He beat three names, but not 3 guys that in their primes.
Belfort came up looking for money, and he got beat. Solid win, but not exactly GOAT worthy
Texeira and Gus and DC are by far his 3 best wins and he finished exactly none of them.
Just because DJ doesn't have the "names" on his resume doesn't mean he doesn't have impressive wins.
Dodson is very impressive win (twice).
Cejudo was undefeated.
Horoguchi is as dangerous a fighter as there is in the division.
And he's flat out embarassing these guys hes in there with.
