    Jones can probably beat everyone at any weight, in any time period under current UFC rules, but he is not the GOAT. Don't get me wrong, he is a decent fighter, but you can't have a crackhead as the best mixed martial artist of all time. To be the GOAT, you MUST be a positive role model. See Jordan and Gretzky.


    Is Barry Bonds the greatest Slugger of all time? Is Lance the greatest long distance cyclist of all time? The case can be made, but their legacies are forever tarnished, Jones just ruined his legacy.


    The true goat, was, is, always will be fedor.

    I suspect he has nothing to do with Cocaine. All this cocaine thing is just a stunt to disperse attention from the real deal, which is Jones was caught closing a PED cycle, and his post-fight test will show up clean, with normal testosterone ratio.

    Jones is a cheat.

    Em no. Jones wouldn't beat Cain, JDS, Werdum, Fedor. Maybe even not prime Cro Cop.

    But this drug thing doesn't remove him from Goat discussion. He is one of 4 candidates for Goat. When he retires he will be clear cut Goat.

    most don't want to include him in the discussion because they hate him, and now with all this controversy its just going to add more fuel to the fire that "jones can't be the goat"

    Many greats whether in arts, entertainment or sport have done blow before, hell everybody that grew up in the 70's-80's has done blow before.

    JBJ is very much still a GOAT contender.

    As long as he keeps winning he will always be in the discussion. Recreational drug use won't change that. Post fight tests will be interesting though

    No offense to any fighter in the game because I respect what you do, but if you're looking at an MMA fighter for your role model, something is up. Oh and by the way, MJ has a huge gambling issue...it's well documented, and the stakes are higher than something you'd see at a casino.

    Fedor lost how many fights again?
    You're delusional.
    If you don't want to accept Jones as the GOAT that's fine. You're opinion doesn't matter because it's prejudiced.
    Whether you or i accept end of the day the person who had been the most dominant, fought the best comp for the longest time is GOAT.

    That's Jones.

    NFl player Lawrence Taylor is still widely considered a GOAT defensive player/linebacker and it's known and admitted that he did coke and much more throughout much of his career. It's not a PED, it's a bad habit.

    Why do you bother with those ?
    Those guys are in a different weight class.

    Are you also going to say aldo/Anderson can't be goat cause they can't beat those guys?
