    lmao wtf?

    One guy hasn't fought in 2 years and has never defended a World Title, other guy has one fight in the past 5 years.

    What does being a two-division champion even mean when you don't even fight in that weight class on a regular basis?? Neither guy even beat the best guy in their division for the second belt.

    Sugar Ray Robinson, Henry Armstrong, Randy Couture are true P4P greats, not GSP and McGregor.

    What a joke.

    Really?

    Conor beat Aldo P4P best fighter at the time, then goes on to beat Alvarez, the most accomplished LW ever and a shoe in for HOF, flawlessly. How many fighters do that?

    DC, GSP and Conor are truly the only P4P fighters on the list because they actually went up and won.

    Aldo is McGregor's best victory, no question. But then McGregor loses to a guy that fought with no training camp right after that, then barely gets by him in the rematch.

    I like Alvarez but the guy lost to Cowboy and arguably lost to both Melendez and Pettis before winning the belt. Then he gets routed by Poirier in his last fight.

    Going up and cherry picking a favorable match-up and then abandoning a belt doesn't make you a real P4P fighter, remaining in that weight division and consistently winning does.

    DC and Mighty Mouse are more legitimate P4P fighters because they've actually beaten more than one top fighter in the higher weight class. McGregor and GSP have not done this.

    Alvarez is bang average and Frank shamrock will be in the HOF before he is.

    Poirier just starched Alvarez and Holloway starched Aldo twice. Conor lost to a career LW gatekeeper in between.

    Notice how you gave a thoughtful response that provides evidence rather than simply claiming that someone is the GOAT? This won't be received very well.

    you're trying to find rationality in a fundamentally irrational concept (GOAT).

    by all means continue doing so if you enjoy it. but there's no other reason to discuss GOAT other than "i enjoy discussing irrational concepts"

    PS you're right about GSP and wrong about Conor <Lmaoo>
