Jon Jones spoke to TMZ earlier this week while at a Los Angeles airport and he gave his thoughts on Ronda Rousey’s loss at UFC 207.

When asked about Amanda Nunes’ calling Rousey overrated, Jones said: “I don’t agree with (Rousey being overrated). I think the sport is kind of catching up with her talent level and people are realizing she’s not as good a striker as she is a ground specialist. I think Holly Holm kind of laid out a blueprint of how to beat Ronda, and it works. One thing about martial arts is none of us are invincible. The lesson you learn in Ronda’s situation is to always evolve. I think it’d be great to see her come back, absolutely,” he said. “I think it would be important for her legacy – it would show people her courage and her strength and her resilience. I think she needs to stick to fighting. I believe she still beats 90 percent of the division. Maybe she’s not going to be the invincible, unbeaten person people thought she was. But whether she fights again or not, she’s still going to go down as an absolute legend. I do believe she could regain the belt and beat any of the other girls (in the division) at any given time.
