    I’ll give you a hint, the winner is the guy with a shit ton of title wins and 0 losses.
    He’s also the guy who won the belt younger than everyone else.

    Aldo was younger noob. He also has 10 victories in world title fights, not 8.

    He also wasn't gifted consecutive defenses against opponents from a division 20lbs below. Neither was GOAT St Pierre.

    Aldo and GSP also rarely competed against title fight opponents who had worse than an active 3 win streak in the division. Of Jon's first 6 title fights 5 opponents had an active 2-win streak or worse at LHW.

    Jones has the best resume in title fights that's for sure, but that doesn't mean he had the best title run IMO. Although his first reign is definitely up there, and would have continued if he hadn't fucked up so many times. Aldo, GSP, Silva, MM & Jones all had insanely impressive reigns as champions (Aldo started in WEC but I'm counting it)

    He's also the guy with drug issues both sports related and recreationally. If you want to support a guy, so be it, but don't be disingenuous. You know he's got his faults as well.

    Nah, it definitely means he has the best run. Best names and he has the highest win loss ratio out of all the GOAT’s, he never had to avenge a loss because he always wins.

    Jones has the weird record of most times winning the title without actually losing it.

    He honestly has the longest winning streak in UFC history, since he won the Hamill fight.

    Vitor had ZERO 205 fights for HALF A DECADE prior to getting his joke title shot against Bones.

    For Chael it was more like 7+ years for his even jokier one.

    Nothing even close to that weak in terms of opponent prep for GSP or Aldo. BJ had beaten the previous WW GOAT for the WW title. Serra had spent the previous 2 years as a WW.

    This was a great case. IMO Aldo's better than GSP and AS.

    Then he got finished by Conor.

    Jones has some names on that resume that are really undeserving of title shots. Aldo and Georges probably have toughest strengths of schedule. Jones has also lost his title multiple times for out of cage failures, which honestly, is so much worse than going out on your shield. Additionally, Georges is a champ-champ. He vacated his belt. He never lost it.

    It depends on weight classes. Lightweight division has far more competition than light heavyweight division for example.

    Yeah, but they lost and Jones didn’t.

    Consider this:

    Jon's first 25 fights at LHW: 25-0 with 9 defenses (effectively ... I count Hamill & DC2 as wins)
    Aldo's first 25 fights at FW: 25-0 with 9 defenses

    Difference is Aldo was operating in one of the deepest divisions in the sport, with beast after beast coming at him, while Jon is in one of the weakest divisions. LHW doesn't have anyone aside from Jon and DC who is on the level of Aldo, Conor, Max, Mendes, Lamas, Frankie, KZ.

    Aldo's 10th defense was against Conor McGregor. Jon's will be against Anthony Hamilton. Says it all really.

    My point was just that he was 9-0 in title fights during his first reign, then he was stripped. He beat OSP for the interim title, then KO'ed DC to unify the belts. Then he was stripped again and just beat Gus to reclaim his title. Technically that's 3 separate title reigns if I'm not mistaken. I guess I'm just arguing semantics. I think GSP's second title reign beginning with Matt Hughes for the interim belt, unified vs. Matt Serra and then ending with his retirement after the Hendricks fight is equally impressive.

    This is like when publications post terrorism statistics prior to 9/11.

    Aldo and GSP lost before their 30’s. Jon’s never lost lol.
