    DC would be considered one of the GOATs if he didn't have the Jon Jones blemish and had a dominant run which I think was totally possible considering he did it between 2 weight classes with the exception of Jones.

    Jones and Phelps have multiple arrests and both have had a lot of personal demons with sobriety, both are also known marijuana users.

    Let us pay tribute to DC & Lochte, hardworking guys who might have been the greatest IF not for living in the shadow of somebody else.

    and also to Phelps & Jones.

    Phelps has had a series with Lochte over many years. DC has fought Jones once and it was a close fight.

    Never failed a test, true. Still has more in common with Phelps than Armstrong.

    No it wasn't. At all. That's a solid comparison too. If it wasn't for phelps, lochte would be a superstar. Same with Cormier. I'd still take either of their 2nd place bank accounts.

    49-46 isn't close. Competitive, but not close.

    The Jon Jones fight isn't a blemish on DC's career, Jon Jones's whole career is a blemish.

    Jon Jones is great but even Phelps is way out of his league in what he as accomplished in his respected sport.
     
  19. How do you throw in the marijuana use as if that means anything.

    I'd say it was the equivalent of Phelps beating Lochte by several tenths of a second. Could easily have gone the other way had Jones made a mistake.
