    Everybody has their pick for GOAT, and it's usually the same few guys. Most often GSP, Fedor, and recently DC has been coming up. But who do you think is the most overlooked GOAT contenders? Is it Aldo, who wrecked a division for 7+ years before a magical leprechaun stole his pot of gold? Is it DJ, who despite facing relatively weak competition, has defeated his competition with relative ease and dominance like never before? Maybe you are one of the few people on the Matt Hughes warwagon, who believe that his wrestling made him the most dominant fighter at 170 pounds before a certain Canadian wasn't impressed with his performance. BJ Penn, whom when dedicated, was possibly the most talented fighter of all time? Dominick Cruz, who fought for 10 years without really being touched until a "savage" tracked him down? Big Nog, who without Fedor would've ruled over the division with an iron fist possibly until he retired?
    Is it Colin McGuire(lol fuck no)?
    The big 3 of GOAT contenders (GSP, DC, Fedor) aren't eligible.
    Fighters who have been caught for PEDs are not allowed. No speculating who was juicing either.
    Discuss.
    (And mods, if you could add a poll with Aldo, DJ, Hughes, Penn, Liddell, Big Nog, Cruz, Saku, Couture, Shogun, Miocic, Hendo, and Werdum, that would be absolutely great.)

    It should be the same guys that come up if it they truly are goats.

    "Most Underrated GOAT Contenders" I mean guys who don't really get brought up, but still have a solid case.

    Sakuraba is overlooked as an all-time-great in general.

    Demetrious Johnson, because he is shorter than the other GOATs, he is rated under them.

    But really, he is probably the GOAT.

    1) The current holder of the UFC title defense record with 11 consecutive title defenses and going.

    2) The most complete fighter the sport has seen. DJ has shown skills in every aspect of the sport and exhibited them in his fights. He has it all. (Boxing, Kickboxing, Footwork, Transitions, Takedowns, Takedown Defense, Transitions, submissions, sub defense, scrambles, clinch game, speed, KO power, cardio, a solid chin, etc.) Every other GOAT candidate is missing something that DJ has in his arsenal.

    3) The only GOAT candidate to reign in the era of USADA.

    TS wants to make sure we know he doesn’t take fighters into account who popped.

    Khabib and soon he will be number one on most people's lists. Just let him reach 30-0.

    Everyone likes to bring up Rakim, Nas, Jay-Z, Biggie, Pac etc but Black Thought has been one of the best for about 2 decades now.

    Being an manlet negates all of that.

    He has a solid case. But loses it when it comes to level of competition. In any other division, Chris Cariaso, Wilson Reis, John Moraga, Ali Bagautinov, Tim Elliot and Ray Borg would be outside of the Top 10.

    A bunch of worthless title defences against bums and was outclassed and destroyed in the only 2 meaningful fights he ever had. Lmao
