    TS must mean the greatest mma smart ass of all time, not Bantamweight.

    It's always been cruz. TJ was so, so close to taking that mantle, but his loss to Cejudo and EPO took him out of the running.

    3 bws from the same home gym, and then there's Cruz who beat 2/3rds of them, all natty.

    Yeah it's Cruz

    Outside of his footwork TJ was heavily overrated.

    It's Cruz and it's gonna be a while before he even has a legit threat to that claim.

    Look at the whole story of each fighter, Dom was a beast and came back from so many things.

    Was inactive for years and still is. Barao dominated the division in his absense and TJ destroyed him twice. He had a close loss to Cruz which could have gone either way and then also destroyed Cody twice who murked Cruz.

    If steroids disqualify him then Anderson isn't the MW GOAT and Jones isn't the LHW GOAT, both of which seem like laughable statements.

    It’s not even close

    Tj won the fight as well and I was rooting for dom

    All he has are 2 wins over Faber and one over an early and undersized mm

    Not nearly active enough or beat enough people to be considered the goat

    It's really hard to play the "MMAth-performance-against-common-opponents" card when they actually had a fight and one of them won.

    It's always been Cruz. He's lost two fights, one to Faber which he then comfortably avenged, twice.

    The other was to Cody who will never fought that well in his life again. Even then it was three rounds to two and Cruz was horrendously injured going into that fight.
