    We can all agree that there's no agreed upon criteria for what P4P or GOAT is. Cool. That's out of the way.

    So in your opinion, who's the highest ranked P4P GOAT that's not #1 in their own division? Some examples:

    Hendo
    (EDIT) Cormier
    Hughes
    Pele
    Sakuraba
    Some Gracie or another
    Randy Couture
    (I'm reluctant to name a current fighter....)

    DC is a good one. Thanks. I'll add him.

    I still pick Hendo though. His Pride WW GP (183lbs) & MW (205lbs) belts at Pride, plus wins over Big Nog & Fedor at HW, and a (almost) 20 year career.

    DC is the correct answer - but a few other notable mentions:

    Tony Ferguson
    Max Holloway - if you consider the FW goat to be Aldo :)

    I believe this is the highest:
    The mountain goat, also known as the Rocky Mountain goat, is a hoofed mammal endemic to North America. A subalpine to alpine species, it is a sure-footed climber commonly seen on cliffs and ice.

    Edgar, although he's obviously slipping now. He has top 5 wins at LW and FW,
    If he gets a top win at BW, he'll have top wins across three divisions topped off with his belts at home.

    Big Nog is like the perfect answer for this. Henderson is another.

    Big Nog
    Henderson
    Barnett
    Arlovski
    Machida
    Shogun
    Liddell
    Hughes
    Belfort
    Franklin

    Speaking of the Rockies, maybe John is the GOAT

    DC would have dominated LHW for years if Jones never existed, and would have probably been a GOAT tier HW if he'd stayed there in his prime.
