    Actually, he beat Hendricks. Check fight finder. 1, 3 & 5 for GSP, but I will admit I thought GSP lost on my first viewing. I've watched the fight since and GSP definitely won 3 rounds to 2. He absorbed more punishment than Hendricks, but that isn't a scoring criteria, which I don't necessarily agree with, but it's the reality of the unified scoring system.

    Lol that's not why anyone thinks he's goat. That's just the cherry on top. Being the goat champ in arguably the goat division is why people have gsp at #1

    Well the thread is goat mma fighter, not goat drawing power. A guy with zero title defenses cannot be the goat.

    Dude we've been over this so many times. The ufc never had the best hw division until they absorbed srikeforce, where Fedor was already fighting. Why would he have to fight in the ufc, when in his prime the best hws were in other orgs?

    Multiple top ranked hws left or tried to leave their promotion just to fight Fedor.

    You may be right. Very close fight on stats, but in my heart Hendricks still won:)

    Still have yet to see a fighter like Fedor, so I'm going with him.

    I’m shocked that jones and Silva have so many votes. This isn’t the asterisk goat poll.

    As far as directly matching the guys up who could be matched up, say in an open weight fight, all in their absolute primes (meaning their best day, of their best month, of their overall best year)....

    Prime Fedor vs Prime Jones - Fedor overwhelms him, gets a hold of him, flips him to the ground and either subs him or TKOs him.

    Prime Fedor vs Prime Anderson - Fedor utterly overwhelms him, grabs a hold of him, and ragdolls him. TKO

    Prime Jones vs Prime Anderson - I lean towards JJ purely based on physical superiority. Both men circle, jab and kick, take their shots, but ultimately JJ wins a UD.

    Prime Anderson vs Prime GSP - If it stays on the feel, Anderson wins. If it goes to the ground GSP could lay on him for 5 rounds. Can GSP get it to the ground? I lean towards Anderson via TKO.

    Prime GSP vs Prime Khabib - Unkown. Hopefully this fight actually happens someday. (I can't gauge their ground games as both are second to none with wrestling, but on the feet I think GSP is superior)

    Prime Khabib vs Prime Aldo - Great fight, though I lean towards Khabib either via later round GnP TKO or UD.

    Prime Aldo vs Prime Mighty Mouse - Aldo via not being a midget.

    GSP only had one bad performance/close fight in his big title run. Jon has now had 3 "Hendricks" moments where he has looked very mortal and possibly decision should have gone other way.

    Even ignoring jon's steroid use gotta give it to gsp.

    Lol wut? In fact many goat candidates have far better resumes. We're talking guys with double digit title defenses.

    Get outta here with Conor as the goat.

    The human highlight reel, prime vs prime the best ever. The knockout king, the matrix man, the greatest of all time..

    Anderson “The Spider” Silva.
