    If you're not a true mma fan - gtfo ;]

    This is the best thread ever on sherdog. Made for super fans only ;]

    So ... Jons - I don't like him, but, a win over DC means a lot.

    I think going HW is the only option right now for him , and Gus ofcourse.

    But ... do u guys like him as much as other GOATs?

    I mean when Fedor or Anderson were in their prime, these events were legendary. No one ever provided emotions and excitement like them.

    My GOAT list:

    1]GSP
    2]Anderson
    3] Jones
    4] Fedor

    gimme your opionons on exciting GOATs vs non-exciting GOATs
    Legendary and humble GOATs like Fedor vs cocky and dickey GOATs like Jones

    let the GOAT discussion begin ...

    enjoy.

    Pretty obvious who the candidates are, and your choice will always be a matter of personal opinion.

    Fedor
    Anderson
    GSP
    Jon Jones
    Aldo

    I see Aldo or Jones taking the top spot soon. If Aldo moves up in weight and wins a title, it's his IMO. Jon Jones seems to be content with staying at LHW or cutting to MW.

    I think it is really hard to take a thread seriously when the title is for "real" MMA fans but the TS has Overeem in his name.

    I hate him, detest him, cannot stand too look at him, but Jones in a few years time.
    Now, Anderson/Fedor.

    signing in to the best thread ever, apparently. It's a bit underwhelming to be honest.

    Agree on that one. In 5 years it won't even be a debate :[ Jones will be #1 GOAT. ehhhh ... I will miss Anderson, Fedor or GSP or Aldo though. Maybe they won't be #1 GOATs but they will go down as legends.

    hey, I used to be on da Overeem bandwangon ;] I mean ... who wasn't!? when he was on juice, he was unstoppable ;] lol, thats too much maybe, but that was long time ago.
