    ....but completely dominated elite level fighters with absolute ease and made them look like amateurs in the process.

    GSP bless.

    These "elite" fighters lost to or fought to a draw with a chubby LW.

    Kinda puts the WW division in a perspective many dont want to admit.

    PS ... not saying they were bad or terrible but maybe not as great as people thought they were in comparison to other divisions.

    Jones has a much better resume and actually finished fights

    Made great fighters look average. Deepest level of competition. No drug fails.

    At this time, he is hands down, THE GOAT.

    Personally, finishing rates don't really matter when it comes to discussing fighters' achievements. When you're fighting the best, it's no easy feat to finish them.

    So deep that Hughes is 1-2 and Fitch is 0-0-1 vs a chubby LW.

    It would be disappointing if the sport's GOAT was someone so wooden and unimaginative. He's work ethic was inspiring, but not how he fought.

    I get his ability to find his opponents weakness deserves respect. But I would hope a GOAT would find it inside himself to fight his opponents at their own strengths

    Preach it! Who is there left for him to prove anything against? Woodley? Silva? Hendrix? Nah. He's the GOAT.

    The WW division that GSP fought was full of one dimensional fighters or blown up LWs. Something GSP fans don't want to admit.

    He's one of the greats indeed
    But I still have Jones and Anderson ahead of him
