    Everyone here at Sherdog knows that Jon Jones is the GOAT, so if Reyes win this weekend over prime Jones, is Reyes the new GOAT?

    I say yes, but Reyes has little chance of winning but it would be the greatest win of all time

    Greatest win (in that division) of all time? Yup.
    Greatest fighter (in that division or generally) of all time? Nope.

    No. It would be easy to say jones is not in his prime anymore, that jones is washed up, that jones isn’t taking supplements, etc. Reyes could never be considered the goat just by beating jones.

    Beat Jones and defend his belt for years. Then maybe.
    Beating the GOAT does not make one GOAT.

    Obviously a troll thread but the answer is obvious:

    Was Chris Weirdman the GOAT after beating Silva? Twice? Now?

    Was Max Holloway the GOAT after beating Aldo? Twice? Now? ...only in Rogan's mind.

    Reyes would hypothetically only have the 1 win and nothing else, so no. But this is a troll anyway so whatever.

    Don't worry, Rogan will crown him the GOAT the moment he beats Jones. There's a new GOAT every show or anytime someone has a big win.

    Rogan seems to think "GOAT" and "lineal champion" are interchangeable
