    How can Jon Jones and Izzy be considered the GOAT when they both run in their fights? They also have an unfair reach advantages over their opponents. How would they do if they didn’t have this advantage?

    If fans have to do 1000 threads in order to convince people that this guy is the GOAT then he is far from being it.

    Using this logic, then what would Khabib do without his advantage. Shorter reach is perfect for grappling....

    Man shertards seem to be getting dumber..

    Part of the reason Jones doesn't impress me as much is just how much of an advantage he has on his opponent in terms of height and reach

    Some fighters can't even get close t him to engage

    To be fair he utilizes this advantage well, but still... Meh.

    Lol now reach advantage disqualifies you from being goat? What are you Khabib fans going to come up with next?

    Exactly what I’m saying Jones isn’t the GOAT. He has a physical advantage over all of his opponents.

    Yes, as we all know long reach=succes
    Which why Stefan Struve and Kevin Lee are All time greatest in their respective divisions...

    Artem isnt a grappler. Khabib is. Its insanely favourable for khabib.

    I didnt sat every great grappler has short arms. Having shorter arms aids Khabib though. He can generate more power in his ground strikes too..

    Jones in on steroids he aint no goat and izzy has some way to go before goat conversation. Khabib not cut, dropped and has dominated has a good shout.

    Jones is GOAT. Been waiting for him to get ko'd since he made Shogun tap to strikes.
