    Werdum...

    tapped Fedor/snapped his 10-year unbeaten streak...

    tapped Cain/snapped Cain's 2 consecutive title defense streak preventing him from achieving HW GOAT status.

    oh wait, Werdum isn't among the GOATs, right?

    GSPs win over Hughes can also be seen as one of the best since Hughes was the champion and the slight favorite going into that fight. Also GSP vs Penn 2 had it almost even in fan voting as to who was gonna win. Many thought Penn was going to win... but if you look at it today many might not consider it one of his best wins since Penn was a lightweight moving up.

    Jones' best win has to be vs Shogun or DC the 2nd time since DC at that point was the champion and had defended the belt.
    Fedors best has to be Nog then Cro Cop
    Andersons would be Rich Franklin since many would say Franklin would have reigned for a while had Anderson not been there. His Hendo win would be next.
    Aldos 2 wins vs Edgar are way way up there because Edgar is well Edgar.
    MM best id say is Dodson
    GSP would be Hughes definitely and maybe Bisping considering the long lay off, going up in weight, winning the belt and the fact many thought Bisping was going to win which is funny how that seems to be forgotten.

    Conor isn't in the GOAT conversation, but Aldo is as good a win as any of the GOATs have imo. I don't think Werdum is in the GOAT conversation either, but beating Fedor and then Cain is a damn good top two wins.

    hes probably a top 5 HW all time, but he has zero title defenses. i mean, id put Miocic ahead of him in the GOAT discussion at this point.

    He might not be in yours, but Conor is much closer to the conversation than many would like to admit.

    If he remained active and continued getting high level wins, then sure. But the guy is semi-retired. He might come back once or twice at several year intervals for a big money fight, but it just won't be enough sustained success to put him over.

    No, Chael is Jones’s best win.

    When you’re the best fighter in the world, they call you Chael Sonnen.
    Jones had to beat Sonnen “on the clock”. If the round ended, Sonnen would have won by TKO due to injury.

    So I guess first round KO wins over Olympic medalists are just routine in your life

    I mean, he'd already lost to Hendo and had a draw with Kohsaka but sure.

    Conor being semi retired is really just your theory with zero evidence to back it up.

    He's 29 years old, people are crazy if they think Conor will stop fighting in his prime while he's able to command such huge fight purses.

    Sure I doubt he'll be fighting 3 times a year anymore, but if he's semi retired, so is half the roster.

    I fully expect Conor to fight at least another 5 times before he's 32.

    People are dumb to think that Conor won't eventually accept another $10-30M, multiple times, just because he already has made $150M in his career. Like that's just such a moronic stance.
