Former UFC light heavyweight king Jon Jones knows a thing or two about what it takes to be a champion in the biggest fight promotion in the world. And Jones believes no one deserves that accolade more than Holly Holm.

Following his Jackson-Winkeljohn teammate Holm's upset of Ronda Rousey at UFC 193, Jones took to Facebook to congratulate her and express his joy over her historic win.
