    Is this true? Is Khabib more padded that Charmin?

    Not a Khabib fan at all but no...just...no. RDA, Barboza, Conor (even though he's somewhat unproven above 145 it's still a good win), Dustin.

    Khabib has fought very good competition, especially lately. Jones is just wrong.

    This man is impossible to take seriously.

    Why is he worried about the legacy of a LW? Yet he does nothing but tease a move to HW, while fighting ex-MW. Don’t even get me started on the ped use.

    That's 4 out of 28 buddy.

    Compare that to Jones resume and it's laughable. Jones has taken out at least 10 legends.

    Machida, Shogun, Bonnar, Bader, Rampage, Vitor, Rashad, DC 2x, Gustaffson 2x, Glover, OSP...

    Khabib's resume looks like a joke compared to that.

    Jones said he had a better resume than Khabib and he wasn't lying. There's very good competition and then there's Jon's resume. Two completely different things.

    Jones has a far better resume, but Khabib has been far more dominant. I don't see any LW giving Khabib any trouble. Khabib never had the luxury on relying on size / reach as well. Overall Jones has still had the far better career and it's not really a debate.

    I'm not saying Khabib's resume' overall is comparable to Jones. Hell, I've posted more times than I can count here about the terrible competition Khabib fought prior to entering the UFC.

    I was only answering the claim that he hasn't fought good competition. That's just not true anymore.

    Yes, I still have Jones' resume' FAR above Khabib's. I didn't even think that needed to be said. I guess there are people who argue that Khabib's resume' is at that level? It's not.

    The majority of Khabib's wins are against cans.
    The majority of Jones' wins are against known fighters.

    One thing I've noticed especially recently is Khabib's been fortunate of no real high level wrestlers at the top of LW. His most recent win against someone with good grappling was RDA. Dustin, conor, short notice Al, Barboza, MJ. All good fighters but none of them really known for high level grappling. It makes me wonder how his grappling would do if LW looked like WW. We had Al stuffing takedowns repeatedly in the last rounds.

    Well Jones said this in response to Max Kellerman who told him that Khabib is closer to GOAT status than him LMFAO.

    Khabib's resume has improved for sure. But he still hasn't even fought the best guy at 155.

    Yeah I'm gonna be honest...I just went by TS thread title.

    And Max Kellerman is awesome...as a boxing analyst. He knows jack shit about MMA.

    How is this even an argument? Lol.

    Jones has been champ for like a decade, of course he’s gonna have a better resume. As far as GOAT status goes, it will always be debatable with Jones involved. If he never popped for anything, then his legacy would be much more solidified.

    Max Kelerman is an unbearable douchebag. Khabib has a record full of journeymen and tomato cans his best win was a hungover Conor.

    Jones is acting like a win is a win, he's nowhere near as dominant as Khabib.

    In his last fight Jones lost twice the number of rounds as Khabib has lost in all 28 fights lol.

    Plus Jones roided up out of fear of facing a natural DC with high bodyfat and low height and reach.

    Why does anyone care about Jones' opinion?

    He medicated himself out of GOAT talks.
