    Any fighter that hasn't failed a drug test is ranked higher than Silva

    Boatload of title defenses. Never roided. Cleaned out the division. Avenged his losses. Yep, it checks out, that's a GOAT alright, same as prime Fedor before he wrecked his hands in pride and could no longer GnP properly.

    So your "feeling" is contradicted by GSP prior to his retirement being one of the biggest advocates for stricter drug testing. A guy that voluntarily underwent much better testing for the Hendricks fight and offered to pay for Hendricks to take the same testing (which Hendricks refused...). A guy that left the UFC because he flat out felt that the testing simply wasn't good enough and too many fighters were cheating.

    Then he comes back, spends 15 months in the USADA testing pool and beats Bisping.

    Is this the guy we are talking about?

    Everyone who really knows the sport knows GSP is GOAT

    I mean technically EVERYTHING is disputed. You can't name one thing that 100% of the world's population believes. People believe the earth is flat. We don't really acknowledge the dopes in these kinds of discussions.

    It was much harder to find those fighters than I expected. Quickly thinking about it I could only come up with Fedor and Mousasi for fighters that truly faced top competion.

    No. It's dull. And it's been done a million times already.

    If you discount PED failures, I would probably choose Jones as the GOAT. I can completely understand someone choosing Anderson over him though. Or GSP, or Fedor. There's reason to choose any of the four as the greatest.

    Fedor - A MW who fought at HW, never busted for PEDs, went 10 years undefeated, beat many top contenders. Undisputed GOAT to anyone who knows anything about the history of MMA.

    At this rate, with title shots based on your mouth and drama, PEDs excused when convenient, rampant cheating such as eyepokes, the UFC will NEVER produce a GOAT that can contend with Fedor.

    Goat list:

    GSP, Conor, DC, Artem.

    Anybody who fails a drug test and takes a USADA suspension is disqualified.
