    Without a doubt. Neither of them are in GOAT contention but Conor is ahead of Khabib in GOAT talks. Here's why,

    Double champ
    Wins in 3 different weight classes
    Went 10 rds with the greatest p4p boxer (Mayweather)
    Fastest KO in a title fight against Aldo
    Wins in 3 different weight classes
    Has 5 of the top 6 UFC PPVs measured in buys
    Never missed weight or backed out of a fight

    Easily a better resume than Khabib imo. All Khabib has is undefeated, and 3 defenses in a row via submission. Meh.

    Fighting LWs at WW needed to be listed twice. Also no one cares about Floyd carrying him or his PPV buys.

    He can even add to it by fight Diaz at 185, 205 and then HW. Wins in 6 different weight classes, WHY NOT?

    Your reasons suck and are not proof of anything GOAT worthy.

    He's also the only fighter in UFC history to tap in three different weight classes. You can add that to his resume, too.

    Khabib is probably GOAT. Top 3 at worst.
    Conor is between 42-47th all time.

    Obiviously he is and thats nothing against Khabib but he just didnt do enough. If all of his wins were like the one against Gaethje then we could have an real argument.
    Conor is currently at #2 in GOAT list only behind Anderson Silva.

    My reasons may suck (they dont) but they're better than your non existant reasons as to why he isnt

    as a conor and khabib fan, every fight is dominant when it comes to khabib, only lost two rounds ever.
    conor struggled heavily with diaz (2) and chad. and thats counting his wins.
    conor has losses where he was humiliated, diaz and khabib.

    He's the greatest MMA fighter of all time because he lost a boxing match? Sorry what the fuck?
