    Two candidates come to mind for me

    Demetrious Johnson

    Pros:Since 2010 hes gone 18-1-1, currently riding a 12 fight win streak he is also currently tied for most consecutive Title defenses(10).

    Cons:Strength of schedule, last few years i feel as though hes getting fighters before their actually ready because of how thin the top ten is.never the less its no easy task what hes been able to accomplish.I feel where only witnessing the tip of the ice berg for the talented Flyweight Division.

    Connor McGregor

    Pros:Since 2010 hes gone 17-2,14 of those wins were by TKO/KO.Two division champ in two different organizations.(UFC/Cage Warriors FW/LW Champion).

    Cons:Unlike MM defending his titles seems to have become a problem for the enigmatic McGregor.If he can come back and string together a few title defenses he should be right in the running come 2020.

    Dark Horses

    Dominick Cruz-The Greatest Batamweight to date, if he can recapture his title and defend it without interruption he is right in the mix.

    Max Holloway-Currently on a 11 fight win streak since his loss to Connor Mcgregor this guy has all the makings of a long term champion at 145.

    Stipe Miocic-Anyone who can stay afloat in the UFC HW Division is worth taking note of.If he can stay on top till 2020 or close to it he'll be right in the conversation.

    Sorry for the long read

    Would have said Jones if not for steroids.

    My vote is for Conor.

    The count.

    Resume that is second to none.

    Only loses to known cheaters.

    Current champ in the midst of an iconic run.

    Fantastic commentator and analyst.

    Gotta be Jones. I hate the guy but he beat more ranked and former champs than anyone's in history. He took elite fighters and beat the piss out of them. Mighty Mouse fights in a division no one cares about.

    i had him no1 pre fail, to many questions around his legacy to even contemplate jones.and a possible 4 years out takes a big chunk out of what could have been the greatest career of all time

    Edit: whoops 2020 I see that now.

    I'll base mine on the fighters abillity to stay relevent in their division over the last 7 years.

    DJ
    Jones
    Cormier
    Aldo
    Edgar
    Faber
    Conor
    Max Holloway
    Joanna
    Lawler
    Stipe


    I know it looks like i posted the whole fw division but all of those guys have literally stayed in the top 5 in their divisions the entire time. some of these guys haven't been around for long, but If they are new-ish (Conor, joanna, Max) they are projecting for big things in the next 3 years.

    Nobody here answered GSP (which is good)... surprising and revealing about his legacy
