    He deserves a spot somewhere on the MMA GOAT list based on what he accomplished in the sport. Fedor is the GOAT followed by GSP and some others but Mousasi has a spot on there in the top 10 to top 15 or so.

    He was finally on the cusp of greatness and then he went to Bellator.

    Moose is top 5 goat of all time
    People i can think who are higher

    Fedor
    Gsp( moose would whoop gsp )
    Silva just because his title defenses but is a cheater)
    Jones overated resume, has potential to be goat if he comes back clean

    Moose above
    hendo ped user got smashed too many times
    Wanderlai cheater
    Crop cop cheater
    Gracie just a bjj artist who made a movement famous but not great

    He's the most overrated and underrated fighter at the same time. Super good fighter but never quite made it to the top.
    Maybe he'll try the UFC one more time. I'd like to see him try one more time at least.

    Because he's nowhere near one of the GOATs.

    He got submitted by Akihiro Gono. Not that that's a bad thing necessarily, but it sets a precedent that's difficult to overcome (and he hasn't).

    cuz hes not. consistent guy thats always top 10, top 5 in a division but he doesnt have a ufc belt. and in ufc he lost to machida, jacare, and hall. his only good win was really just the weidman win and it was a strange stoppage that ruined the fight. other then that he lost to the other top guys he fought (machida, jacare)

    Fighters should only be considered into GOAT discussion if they have reached the top of their division at least "once".

    Mousasi has never become a consensus number one in any division he fought in.
