    Top 4 GOAT Anderson Silva vs Top 10 GOAT Dan Henderson for the UFC/Pride MW titles

    Top 4 GOAT Jon Jones vs Top 10 GOAT DC for the UFC LHW title (2X)

    Top 4 GOAT Jose Aldo vs Top 10 GOAT Frankie Edgar for the UFC FW title (2X)

    These 5 fights are amongst the highest level and most skilled fights of all time.

    Any others I’m missing?

    Maybe the first DC vs Stipe fight counts. Dc was 39 at the time though.

    Jones vs DC. Say no more.

    Silva vs Hendo. For me, a landmark fight in MMA that nowadays doesn’t garner the interest it deserves.

    Great thread, TS. Very interesting.

    If the GOAT list is a lot about fighters skills at their peak, not necessarily their longevity, i'd totally include DJ vs Cejudo II.

    One of Aldo vs Edgar wasnt for the title.

    It was Aldo first fight after losing to Conor iirc.

    With that said

    Anderson vs "the still undefeated" Chael Sonnen

    It was for the interim I believe, which Aldo lost to Max.

    BJ vs Hughes and GSP vs Hughes were at the time three of the best p4p fighters.

    Doesn't get enough respect for that fight? Shertards can't go a day without circle-jerking about that fight.
