    Who is the GOAT of Kickboxing to you ?
    Is it Cro Cop, Hug, Hoost, Sefo, Aerts ?
    Should he be Dutch, because they rule the game ?
    Who had the longest win streak ?

    Schilt is the most accomplished, though many will say Aerts, Buakaw or Petrosyan are P4P better.

    Kickboxing Goat: Peter Aerts

    ->Youngest K-1 HW WGP champion

    ->First to win the WGP in consecutive years

    ->The only man who ever defeat the monster Semmy Schilt more than once(and he did it 3 times,the last one at 39 freaking years old)

    ->The only one who participated in the First WGP tournament(1996) until the 2010 Edition(consider the last legit,2012 was made to Cro Cop win a WGP)

    -> 2x Semi Finalist,3x Finalist(the last one as 39 Years old)

    ->3x Champion,the first one to reach 3 K-1 WGP wins

    ->Considered one of the main reasons of the worldwide popularization of Modern Kickboxing

    ->Victories against the elite of the first K-1 HW generation( 2x Masaaki Satake, 2x Ernesto Hoost, 3x Jerome Le Banner, 2x Sam Greco, 3x Mike Bernardo, 2x Andy Hug, 2x Ray Sefo).Almost all these victories on their prime days.

    ->Victories against the elite of the second K-1 HW generation(2x Musashi, 2x Glaube Feitosa, 1x Alexey Ignashov, 3x Semmy Schilt, 1x Remy Bonjasky)

    -> Victories against elite fighters of the third K-1 HW generation(1x Errol Zimmerman and 1x Gohkan Saki)

    ->Second Quickest winner of a K-1 WGP edition

    ->Living legend, was known as Mister K-1

    Honorable Mentions:Ernesto Hoost,Semmy Schilt,Giorgio Petrosyan,Buakaw Banchamek


    To a better comprehension,Peter Aerts is for kickboxing what Bernard Hopkins Was for modern Boxing and Dan Henderson was for MMA

    He had a habit of losing when it mattered. Great fighter but definitely not goat.

    Plus, when the cops raided his house, they found a lot of steroids
    in his fridge. Also some oral roids.

    He is not a psycho who should be in jail... he should just serve his time with the level of what he did and by the time he has to stay...it's not that a big of deal. I know what I'm talking about.

    And for GOAT he has serious boxing skills for a kickboxer, just look at his fight against Zimmerman and Londt lately. Also against Rico we could see great boxing skills and he even had ambition to become one. But Petrosyan is the same, but even better IMO.

    You guys are talking over Badr like he killed people and he is a sniper in his days off.... Besides, it's about his kickboxing skills.
    Yup, just did it:D

    he's a scumbag and his accomplishments aren't as impressive as other top fighters.
