    Not saying he is the "greatest" because his resume isn't there yet but current Fig would beat any flyweight ever.

    Crazy power, striking, chin, grappling

    Cejudo and DJ picked a good time to run from the division. Cejudo couldn't even beat Joe B and DJ struggled with Joe B in their first fight.

    I think both Cejudo and Mighty Mouse beat him handily. Prime Benavidez probably does too.

    Recency bias
    Recency bias is a cognitive bias that favors recent events over historic ones. A memory bias, recency bias gives "greater importance to the most recent event",

    lol he is a bum. he takes all punches that goes to him and he is not good at striking. MM is best, period. DF won first fight with dirty tricks, and for second fighr JB didn't recovered. Cody will ko him easily.

    His resume is solid at it gets, a win vs cody no chin and a couple of more wins and he might be. This current FLW generation is far more stacked than the DJ era.

    Greatness is relative in sports these days. I hate that we talk about people being the 'greatest' when they are still fighting ... and outside of Jon Jones who has NOT gotten the shit kicked out of them after being called the greatest?

    cody will easily win him. cody lost only to steroid goat and very strong munoz. Now he stopped to brawl, and will declass fig like he declassed dom.

    Until Figueiredo beats Mighty Mouse's record, DJ will always be the Flyweight GOAT.
