In other sports you have to be at the top for at least 10 to 15 years before people start talking about "GOAT" status. In MMA you win 5 fights and people already start claiming you are the "GOAT." Stipe had 2 title defenses and now the "GOAT" label is being attached to his name. Really! I know it is just a marketing tool, but it is stupid, and doesn't even make sense. It makes the UFC seem like WWE without the scripted ending. Just drama with a few fights sprinkled here and there. The first real GOAT of MMA will probably emerge when current 30 to 35 year old fans are in their 60's. Thoughts.
