    He literally beat DC twice at LHW. How can DC be the #1 LHW when he has 2 losses to Jones? To be better than someone, you fight them and win....

    Wether he insisted or not is irrelevant because he would legally have to join USADA testing.

    I don't care, GSP is not natty to me. You will never change my mind ever but thanks for checking out the thread.

    Are you trolling with Jones not being active? If not, you should check his fight history.

    The #2 LHW that lost to Jones twice. Jones already beat Gus and Volkan is not elite. Volkan's on a 3 fight losing streak and his 3 best wins aren't even that good. I don't know why you highlighted DC's win over Volkan.

    DC didn't bulk up to HW, he started at HW and cut down to LHW, and even cheated once #TowelGate

    Jones beat DC the first time - January 2015

    DC beats Rumble the first time - May 2015 (4 months after losing to Jones)

    DC Beats Rumble the second time - April 2017

    Jones beats DC the second time - July 2017

    So every time DC beat Rumble, he lost to Jones right before or right after. If DC easily beats Rumble easily and Jones easily beats DC, it's safe to safe Jones is better than Rumble.

    Lance is the GOAT cyclist.

    He's had a fight every calendar year of his career. Regardless, he beat all his opposition and stayed the #1 LHW.

    So Fedor can't be in the GOAT discussion? And you have to have defences in the UFC to count towards GOAT status?

    Because I believe Mighty Mouse can still build upon his resume to be considered GOAT regardless of promotion.

    Probably.

    Well he did and a lot of people and probably other fighters think he's the GOAT as well. Silva popped, GSP and Fedor fought during a time with weak drug testing. Just eliminate PEDs from the discussion because there's no way to 100% know what people are and are not using.

    ... because the champion is #1 you fucking retard. That is how rankings work.

    And he beat him once, the 2nd time is a NC.

    You can very easily pass someone by rankings that beat you, like Tony is ranked higher than MJ.

    GSP fought under VADA and defended the WW belt vs the #1 contender.

    GSP then fought under USADA and won the MW belt, was in the testing pool for several years and never popped.

    Haha
    No just concise examples.

    I often hear people say "look how tall he is, he must be bigger"
    Or
    "Look at the size of his biceps, hes bigger".

    Im just asking if u can provide any emperical evidence of mass discrepancy.

    But Fedor was knocked out by a MW.
    How does that work?

    Jones knocked out the HW champ

    A MW? Last I checked everyone he's fought weighed within the HW limit.

    And was he the #1 HW when he lost to that "MW"?

    And Fedor had 20 fights as the #1 HW
    Jones has had 12 fights as the #1 LHW

    the failed drug tests and tests with low t/e levels tell the story.

    you well know a clean fighter isnt suspended fror 27 months and needs a loop hole to not get 45 months.

    He's been the top dog in an aged division, and a weak division. 8 years at lhw is like 4 at hw max. It's far harder to do at hw.. Even Jones says this... Hw is far more dangerous... And he is right.

    Old man Dan was 205 lbs fight night when he layed Fedor out. That's less than most MWs in cage
