    The reason I still feel SIlva is GOAT material is he beat everyone put in front of him and never ducked anyone. Fedor ducked the UFC, Conor has ducked the FW division, and Jones is ducking his head low to snort coke. Shouldn't the fact Silva beat everyone he was asked to, and beat them easily in his prime give him consideration for GOAT ? Aldo too could have that claim.

    "Ducking" - Fighter X isn't fighting who I want him to so I'll just throw out this stupid term.

    Word ducking should be punishable by death via firing squad

    He ducked Bisping. Anderson is second only to Fedor. Some put him further down due to PEDS.

    How has Conor ducked the FW division, when the current title fight are two guys he already beat up?

    He didn't duck Filho, but I believe Filho (before he lost his mind) would have been a really bad match up for Anderson. Arona as well, although I'm not sure Arona could make 185........

    His PEDS put him off true GOAT status. That's reserved solely for Fedor.

    I can't believe this is an actual concensus.

    Actually, it's Sherdog. Yes I can.

    Conor kind of tore through the FW division. The only fights that he didn't get that I would have even wanted to see would be Edgar and Swanson. As for Anderson, you are 100% correct, has anyone ever accused him of ducking fights though? And please don't do the Conor nuthugger response, it's on the same level as calling anyone who supports the police a racist....
