    Prime years are different for everyone. These 4 Divisional GOATs experienced their best years during these 3 year spans. Agree or disagree?

    HW goat Fedor: 2003-2006
    Lhw goat Jones: 2011-2014
    Mw goat Silva: 2006-2009
    Ww goat St-Pierre:2006-2009

    GSP tapped to strikes in his prime against serra.

    The others were unbeatable.

    Location is Canada with a comment like that? :)

    I would argue that his first fight with Serra was before his prime. Prime is more than just athleticism - it's also just the right amount of experience. GSP needed that loss to Serra to learn from it and become one of the GOAT's

    Anderson Silva 16-0 in the UFC with no asterisks, no bullshit judges' decisions, no "but but what about the context" excuses, and a 87.5% finishing rate. Ridiculous! LOL

    Anderson Silva's best was A LOT better than anyone else's best.

    Anderson's prime - if you saw it, you saw it. If you did not, you missed on a rare instance of greatness.

    The others fall below him if we speak strictly of their primes.

    I guess not all Americans are Jon Jones fans so that's fair. But GSP is far more likable..

    That's because you don't hear him speaking in French and how smug he is.

    He comes off as smug even in English lol. Seems fake to me, like Jones before people started to see his real personality.

    I think a lack of quality comp really holds him back, his big matches were against guys like Shogun, Rashad and Lyoto at LHW and he avoided them.

    The jesus freak jones was cringy.

    And the "japanese martial arts bowing" Silva was also a load of nonsense. Chael hit that one on the nail.

    Those 3 guys are smug, there's no way around it. I think Silva is more mature and genuine now. He was not before.

    a nervous laguh wondering why they can't finish people effortlessly like prime anderson did?
    Laughter is sometimes a defense to insecurities.
