Fedor for me.
I did Fedor, as im not sure what OP means.
Fedor up until his string of "out of prime" losses was GOAT for me. GSP can be bc hes stopped competing before the loses came.
i still view Fedors loses to wedum and hendo iffy, as he was beating ass until those quick finishes. now, i just cross my fingers every time he gets in the cage.
GSP was too safe to be goat
Jon Jones on drugs p4p greatest of all time
That was sarcasm. For me this is between Fedor and Jones (maybe Silva too if his Pride loses were rigged lol), but MMA is a young sport, others would surpass them very soon probably
It's really between Fedor and GSP. Jones has the PED suspensions which take him out of the running IMO.
The majority of people voted GSP. Jones arguably lost his last 2 fights, most people thought he lost to Reyes and he popped twice for PEDS. Sorry but no, Jones had to cheat to beat Cormier, a guy literally half his size. Thats ridiculous. If you are the GOAT why do you need to cheat against a guy you already are much bigger than?
Fedor is a decent pick and for me hes #2 behind GSP at #1 but he did lose to Werdum, Henderson and Bigfoot Silva. You can argue he wasnt in his prime but he was only what, 33 and 34 for those fights? Thats not that old, especially for a heavyweight fighter.
What exactly is your argument against GSP? Because for me, hes clearly #1, but Jones drug charges and his close fight to Reyes and split decision vs Thiago Santos how can you say hes the GOAT?
Wasnt he only 33 and 34 during his string of losses? You cant really call that out of prime, especially for a heavyweight.
I'm not discrediting Fedor at all, I love him as a fighter and his entrance music could give you goosebumps but because of those losses and not seeing him in the UFC like GSP/Jones I have to rank GSP #1.
Jones here is the most hated, they are not objective and they are not judges. Cormier had the same weight or more.
GSP lost to Serra for TKO and lost to Matt Hughes by sub, thats like Fedor during his best moment been submitted by Mark Coleman. I think no one thought GSP was the best during Fedor and Silva's reign
GSP avoided a rematch with Hendricks and hand picked a soft champion in Michael Bisping to win the middle weight title.
I will take Fedor as my GOAT. He fought anyone, anywhere, at anytime. In his prime he wiped out the heavyweight division, a weight class with very large and powerful men where 1 punch can end a fight. He was undefeated as well for many many years.
GSP took the road of least resistance. Fedor who could have easily fought at middleweight with his frame. Instead, he hit the weight room and went after heavweights; the most dangerous division. Fedor took the road of most resistance.
The delusion is strong with this one
GSP avoided a rematch with Hendricks. He also avoided a dream fight with Anderson Silva when both were in their primes. This is not an opinion, this is a fact. GSP avoided key fights where he was in danger of losing. Fedor on the other hand fought everyone including multiple former UFC heavyweight champions and he beat them too. These are all facts. Deal with it.
any list without Jonno Mears on it is not legit
Just a reminder: GSP has almost 4x the votes of Silva.
More votes than Silva and Jones combined.
Quality > Quantity
Yes 0 PED pops vs multiple.
People HATE Jones not surprised.
