    Is Jon Jones the GOAT? Everyone has their myths, for me if you piss hot your excluded but I will admit his skills & intelligence are up there, juice or no juice. However I have heard people say what makes him so good is all the champions he beat? Take Khabib for example, how many champions has he beat? People will say he can't be as good as Jones because he hasn't ran through champions. Here is the issues! How does Khabib get a chmapion like BJ on his record, when BJ can't win a fight to save his life, how does he fight Frankie who changed divisions, how does he fight Benson that was released from the UFC, how does he fight the wheaties box guy who wins 2 loses 2 wins one loses one. Jones had champions on his resume because that is what his whole division consisted of. It is also like people saying mighty mouse isn't as good because he hasn't beaten champions, lol how is he supposed to be champions when nobody could win his belt for the longest time. Not disputing Jones greatness but he has wins against more champions cuz his division consisted of guy that couldn't hang on to the strap.

    I mean it helps but there’s also the fact that he’s never lost, looks insane, wins in multiple ways, and has been champion for nearly a decade.

    If Khabib gets through Tony and if he defeats Conor in the rematch, he's the clear GOAT (a big if)

    Lol beating Conor does nothing for Khabib in a rematch, he already crushed him like a can the first fight.

    Ok smart guy, give us the path for Khabib to beat a bunch of champions? You gonna resign Benson, move Frankie up and give BJ & Pettis a title shot and resign Eddie? Jones has beated a ton of champions cuz none of them could hold the belt, thus creating more champions in his division. When the light bulb goes off let me know. In the mean time stay in England and the fuck out of the United States you **** sucker

    There's a reason Conor so badly wants the rematch. The focus wasn't there, and he fought hurt. Do you think he enjoys being humiliated in front of millions of people?

    Hammil hit Jones elbows with his face so hard , the ref had to call it right there. Good stoppage ! Jones was in agony .

    "Juice or no juice"

    Okay well that's just dumb...so if we knew for a definitive fact Jones has never used steroids or any PEDs and legitimately was "framed" by accidentally ingesting tainted supplements (or whatever)...then you would still exclude him from the GOAT list, let alone clearly being the GOAT probably?

    Also you're comparing BJ Penn who's so washed up he's getting flash KO'd by bums outside of bars and spinning the wrong way into heel hooks, utterly washed, to guys who were recently champions or clear top 2-5 fighters at the time like Shogun and Machida, Evans and Rampage. It's not comparable. Sure there's an argument to go in hindsight and say some of those LHWs were a bit out of their prime or diminished, but they were still top fighters at the time and BJ Penn has only been getting fights due to his name.

    The guy was LHW champion at the age of 23. That is a big boy division, and he wasn't even fully developed yet,but he still managed to crush some grown men.

    Jon Jones could have been the LeBron James of MMA but he messed it up for himself. His biggest weakness is his need to be socially liked.

    Poirier is a top 2-5 fighter? Conor is a 2 weight world champion? Demetrious beat a prime Cejudo who is now a 2 weight champion . . . what is your point? Not comparing BJ to Jones opponents I am saying Khabib hasn't got a resume packed with legends cuz they are not available to him like they were to Jon. I'm not addresssing bums outside of bars vs Rampage, Machida, Shogun etc. What is your point? So wait you believe that olympic sized swimming pool pulsing shit?
