    Jose Aldo
    Conor McGregor
    Max Hollaway
    Chad Mendes
    Frankie Edgar

    Conor knocked out 2 of them and dominated the third.

    Its safe to say he's the GOAT featherweight

    No.

    Aldo
    FABER
    Conor
    Edgar
    Hioki

    That's the correct list for those who actually checks ALL TIME before writing.

    He'd lose to any of these guys. He's a pioneer but not top 5.

    "Best" and "Goat" are 2 different things.

    Connor definitely doesn't have the resume to be FW Goat. And he left the division before verifying he could beat Frankie.

    That's not how top 5 works dumb dumb. Rocky Marciano and Muhammad Ali are on everyone's top 10 all time Heavyweight lists even though they'd lose if they fought a lot of guys throughout boxings history. It's respective to fighters greatness in their relative era.

    Ah, guys.

    Just now I saw who the TS is.

    He's a troll, and not the smartest one.

    Ignore this thread.

    Mark Coleman would get destroyed by Ruan Potts, does that mean he should be ranked below all-time?

    Is Ali not even top50 all time great HW?

    This is about their resume and legacy, not who would beat who....

    Besides, the newer generations will always be better than older, so thats not really a fair comparison at all

    I'd rank Mike Brown above Edgar and Hioki when it comes down to accomplishments, but yeah the idea is there.

    Slept Aldo.
    Moved up, smashed Eddie.
    However, I agree. Conor needs to upend a bear with ankle weights on to confirm his spot.

    I never said GOATS, I just said the best featherweights and Faber is neither a GOAT nor is he the best.
    Edit: I mean I never said these 5 are the GOAT featherweights, Max still has a lot to prove but I do think Conor is GOAT because he beat everyone he faced.

    I agree. And before anyone goes on about title defenses and how long aldo had it ask your self if conor would lose to lamas, zombie or hommick.

    If you're reasonably intelligent you'd know it's Conor. at the very least he's the best FW the UFC has ever had IMO
