    Anderson Silva won 16 consecutive fights, all in the UFC.

    Jon Jones was at 14 with his second win over Cormier but now is back to 13, and with his impending suspension, will either never beat the record or will do in 6-7 years, by which time it might already be broken. Had Jones not fucked his life up like he did, and had the Hamill DQ not happened, I assume Jones would have 20+ consecutive UFC wins. But alas....

    Mighty Mouse just tied GSP with 12 consecutive wins for the second longest streak, but Georges took it back when he choked out Bisping. GSP has 13 straight. I feel like GSP has a shot, but find it unlikely. If he fights Whittaker, I think he could possibly win, and if he fights Conor, I think he'd smash him. But its not the opponents I worry about. I honestly don't think GSP has four more fights in him. I think its 2 tops. Whittaker and Conor. And if he somehow beats Whittaker, I think he'd probably retire on the spot.

    That brings us to Mighty Mouse. On paper he seems the most likely. 12 straight wins and a weak division. He should be able to do it in his sleep. But that could all come crashing down with the threat of Dillashaw hanging over his head. DJ would no doubt stomp the Cejudo's and Pettis's of the world, but I think Dillashaw would fuck him up. If DJ ducks, I think he cruises to the record.

    That leaves us with Tony Ferguson and Max Holloway. Max is riding a 11 fight win streak and Tony a 10 fight streak. Given the shark water that Ferguson swims in, I don't see him getting past all the Conor/Khabib monsters floating in the ocean. I wouldn't bet on Ferguson winning more than 1 or 2 fights before someone catches him.

    Holloway out of everyone I've listed, seems the most likely to accomplish the feat. If he can beat Aldo again and beat Edgar, theres really no one else he hasn't already beaten. Plus he might not even be in his prime yet, he's so young and hungry. If I had to bet, I'd say Holloway is the guy to do it. But I guess that all hinges on DJ fighting Dillashaw or not. Although even if DJ does do it first I could still see Max eventually surpassing him.

    Anyways, thats my take, what do you think?

    I agree with your conclusion that Holloway is the most likely at this stage.

    Conor.
    As a stakeholder of UFC he will invite all great stars of combat fighting to make big money fights like:

    - Oscar de la Hoya
    - Fedor
    - Klitschko bros
    - Hendo

    And many many more. They just need to be over 40yr old

    Chad Mendes will be tough for max when he returns. But that's a hard question. Whittaker is on a decent streak right now, no? Same with Woodley.

    Woodley is on a two fight win streak. I don't think he's in the conversation. Whittaker is definitely a dark horse contender though, 8 straight wins and he just beat Jacare and Romero back to back so really, he could beat anyone. At the same time though, I think Rockhold and Weidman give him big problems. I wouldn't count him out. But much like Ferg, he's swimming in shark water.

    As far as Mendes, I guess we'll have to see what post USADA Mendes looks like. I think Edgar would be a tougher fight for Max anyhow.

    I think this is too easy.
    It's DJ.
    And that's using your logic: he crushes everyone except TJ, which means he only needs to win 1 fight and nothing can stop him from winning 100.

    You assume we accept the 16 wins by Anderson as an accomplishment.
    I'm not impressed, I don't feel like beating up guys high on Xanax makes for the best performance ever.
    And he was on steroids the whole time, so as far as I am concerned you can take his accomplishments and wipe your ass with them.

    Well, he needs to win 5 straight fights to surpass Anderson. If one of those is Dillashaw, I don't think he can do it.

    Again, your saying he only needs to win 1 fight.

    Both of Jones and Anderson’s streaks have a huge asterisk next to them.

    DJ takes zero risks, he'll do it easily.

    Nobody will notice or care.

    You know this topic is not about it, right?

    I agree with you, but for fu**'s sake let's not talk here about PEDs, McGregor or Colby, can we do it?

    True enough. I think GSP has a chance of beating the streak.
