    If he beats whittaker by finish

    he has

    rockhold by brutal finish
    whittaker by POSSIBLE finish
    weidman by brutal finish
    jacare (barely but still)
    machida by brutal finish
    tim kennedy brutal finish
    dereck brunson brutal finish

    it beat anderson. # title defenses not mean much when the opponents are shittier and like chris leben or leittes or maia.

    That’s a big IF.


    Yoel is great with serious killer instincts, but I’m picking Robert Whittaker with two knees to take the rematch.

    Whittaker is one hell of a bridge to cross.

    Anderson Silva - 10 MW title defenses (11 if Lutter had made weight)

    GOAT is meaningless on Sherdog. These people around give that term to any fighter with a couple of big wins.

    I do wonder if Wonderboy beat Whittaker because of difficulty making 170 or a suspect chin.

    Yoel doesn't fear no 170 pounder.

    Sorry TS but no. Yoel is awesome, but he has a long way to go before unseating AS as the GOAT of middleweight.

    If you ask Whittaker he’ll tell you Wonderboy was just better than him then. Weightcut didn’t help, but he was also training overseas and wasn’t getting the time in with his coaches he needed.

    Terrible logic

    You are actually considering a guy who is yet to win a title belt as GOAT of his division?

    You're too in love with the muscles man. Put down that copy of Mens Health, put the lotion away and get real. Whittaker merkd that fool, he will do it again.

    Also... it's cool how you recognize a brutal finish over Rockhold as a credible victory... yet probably if asked the same question in reference to Bisping you'd pass it off as a "fluke". And on top of that, Rockhold holds a KO win over Weidman. I'm never an MMA mathemetician, but your logic is messed up man seriously.

    Not to mention that in Romero's only legit shot at some sort of title he blew his chances by missing weight and therefore was not eligible. Roid monkey if I've ever seen one. Just stop kidding yourself and follow the AJ path to LHW.
