I think Jones is too young to compare for now. But Anderson and Fedor stayed too long....as did Georges....It just sucks that all of our guys who we recognize a champs are done.


GSP did a smart thing I think....we are witnessing a turnover in MMA.

There can be multiple GOATs.

Would you say Muhammed Ali is not a GOAT in boxing because he lost his last two? Anderson will always be a GOAT, but everyone gets old and unless they retire on top they will lose sooner or later.

I disagree. It's not too early to have a GOAT.

And the status can always change in the future. MMA fans are just too fickle and, unfortunately, not very smart.

If Jones don't get sidetracked by drugs, lifestyle, and other pitfalls, and keep on the straight and narrow, I can't see anyone beating him for the next 3-5 years.

He got too many physical tools. He just used it so effectively against Rua, and Rua is no slouch, but he looked like an amateur against Jones.

If Jones remain focus and keep the trajectory he is currently on, he will go down as one of the all-time greats. Maybe top 3-5 in my opinion, but only time will tell.

You can do this with most champs. Even weidman. 11-0 with two wins over Anderson freaking silva, in hindsight that will be huge on his resume. Also wins over Maia, Munoz and who knows how many others in the future. Jones has done more yes, but hes also looked more vulnerable against Gus. Too early to talk about the next 3-5 years.

Fedor and Anderson prove themselves over a decade. They both deserve to be in that discussion.
