    It's a treat to see triangles pulled off in modern mma. If you roll even a little, you know how tricky the proper application can be to execute. But at the elite level? Pure magic

    He's never won the belt. That's huge. If they have a LW tournament for the vacant belt and he comes out on top he's top 3 for me. But you can't be a GOAT if you've never been champ.

    Justin is not an elite mma wrestler nor was he ever close to be one in his entire life

    I hope Tony wins the title one day. That would be great.

    Resumes matter more than belts imo

    Quality of wins should matter, belts are politics

    Gaethje isnt much of an MMA wrestler. In retrospect, fhe Brian Foster fight shoulda been indicative of how the Khabib fight would play out.

    Never said Tony was GOAT, but rather top 3 ever in his weight class alone

    Stop twisting my words.

    especially considering the title was held hostage by conor. He was a defacto LW champion in my eyes.

    He got his face smashed in in his last fight with a chance to fight for the title on the line. Sorry but that's hard to shake.

    Yeah when he was most likely past his prime at age 36 as well as some unique extenuating circumstances (amid a pandemic, multiple weight cuts)

    The interim strap he won in 2017 should realistically be considered a legit title given the fact that Conor was a lame duck champ and officially stripped 5 months later

    Nah there's a huge difference between the two , Khabib took gaethje down and gave up the full mount to the triangle , Tony got taken down and outwrestled until the staph infection got the best out of Kevin Lee .

    Never beat a champ. He has a nice resume as far as number of wins, but only 3 really good ones IMO. Dos Anjos, Lee, Barboza. He finally fought someone at the very top of the division and got smashed. Make up all the excuses you want. That's not top 3 LW of all time material.
