    Nurmagomedov wants GSP to postpone his retirement and fight in November. If they did and GSP defeated Khabib would that solidify GSP's status as GOAT?

    He already is. Jones and silva are disqualified for PED and drug use. Jones especially.

    Isn´t he retiring again?

    Maybe he will comeback if Bisping win another belt.

    Well... He's already the GOAT.

    It's just icing on the cake

    Beating Khabib makes him the definitive GOAT with no argument otherwise tbh

    He's arguably the GOAT anyway

    Moving down a weight class, no. Defending that MW strap would have imo.

    He’s already there. All that does is leave the possible argument that he would have lost against Khabib... Silva... Woodley for his haters.

    Nothing changes whether this fight happens or not.


    GOAT.

    There were same exact discussions before the Bisping fight.

    GSP could got on another 10 fight run, undefeated, and there would still be people arguing.

    Pointless discussion.

    The argument for GSP being GOAT depends on disqualifying others based on out of cage activities and conspiracies. If you need to pretend another fighters career didn't happen to be the GOAT, you ain't the GOAT.

    Say what you want about the Pride fans backing Fedor they at least came at it with an argument that Fedor's streak was special and they really think he is the best fighter ever. I think the argument's stupid but they don't need to ignore the existence of other people to make it.

    Jordan was a gambling addict. He's was just some good investigative reporting away from being Pete Rosed. Imagine if LeBron was the GOAT not because he's better(I think he is not the point) but because Jordan gambled on basketball games and should be DQ'd? The NCAA takes this stupid logic and pretended a USC season didn't happen cause someone gave Reggie Bush a car and a Memphis season didn't happen cause Derrick Rose cheated on a test.

    depends

    if he decisioned Khabib as I predict and got a 3rd belt sure it would be a cool feather in his cap but if GSP somehow managed to finish Khabib then damn...GOAT

    He is already the GOAT

    If GSP was American, no one would even question his status

    If GSP loses then he lost to 2 lightweights. And GSP fans always like to point out the losses of other goat contenders, even though they continued fighting while GSP retired at 32 years young.

    Just a reminder, if Fedor or Anderson retired at the age GSP did, they would be undisputed by your rhetoric.

    GSP jabs Khabib to death with a few takedowns thrown in to win the UD.
