    Is my list accurate.

    Jones has been the #1 LHW for 8 years in a row.

    José was #1 for 6 years
    Mighty Mouse was #1 for 6 years
    GSP was #1 for 6 years
    Silva was #1 for 6 years (few months shy of 7 years)
    Fedor was #1 for 8 years

    Jones will be the GOAT if he wins the HW belt or stays champ for another year. This is crazy groundbreaking stuff guys. (List doesn't account for how active the fighters were/are just how long in years that they were numero uno).

    In that case GSP is numero uno

    Stayed number one for 10 years (if we use your logic) and came back to become MW champ.

    Most finishes, most bonuses, most wins, most wins by headkick etc... Cerrone is the GOAT!

    Not if you factor in finishes.

    Jones is the GOAT yes and has been the GOAT for quite some time. He is miles a head of #2 - DC. That should tell you everything about the skills of Jon Jones.

    Nobody comes close.

    GSP also lost during his prime. So that makes Jones look better.

    He’s a lowlife. And you need to get one. Pretty sure not being the champion means you are not number 1.

    Obviously not.

    If he'd never used PEDs and never tested positive, then yes. But as it stands, Jon is a low quality, scumbag human being in all facets of life.

    Obviously. Jon Jones is on a whole other level. Only Silva and Fedor come close

    Fedor is ahead for now. Jones will probs surpass him but HW is seen as the baddest division. So Fedor will always have that over him.

    I am sure DC would disagree

    GSP avenged both his losses and didn't get busted for PEDs twice. That makes him the GOAT.

    Jones still tests positive to this day. That's how much steroids pumps through his veins.

    That's not my logic. If you retire, you no longer can be ranked. Calzaghe, Marciano, Floyd, Ward, etc. retired as champs but their reigns don't continue because they're retired.

    In that case you'd have to factor everything else. Strength of competition, PEDs etc..

    Jones fought declining legends while jacked on PEDs. Not to mention he had a size advantage over everyone he fought.

    Jones has never been KO’d, subbed or lost on the judges scorecard to anyone.

    Gsp got subbed and TKO’d/subbed twice depending how you look at it

    Fedor and Jones are easily above Georges.

    GSP never retired. He took time off. And taking time off is the same as Jones taking time off because he's being arrested for hitting pregnant women or getting busted for PEDs.

    If you're going to factor in the amount of time a fighter is inactive then be consistent.

    Do stickied threads not show up for you or something? Gsp crushed both of them.
