    Continue on his war path. Do like other BWs and call out old or retired fighters. Maybe he can get some respect by fighting Jens Pulver.

    Defend his title?

    I'd say Aljo, TJ, and cejudo (or sandhagen + cruz) make him BW goat

    I have the ever evolved aljo beating yan in December so- if I'm right- Yan will be one of many one and done chsmps.

    A great fight btw- a coin flip fight for my money. I'm sure alot of sherdoggers will disagree with me which makes me warm inside.

    I think a guy from DWCS could be in the goat conversation these days, without one fight in the UFC. Embarrassing.

    I see Yan coming in as a slight favorite but I'll take aljo + the small comeback.

    Cruz beat Faber twice, Benavidez twice, Dillashaw, Mighty Mouse and Bowles so still got a way to go to surpass that imo.

    Have a better resume and more wins. His best wins are guys past their prime like Aldo, 50 year old Faber and Dodson

    Cruz is BW goat until someone defends his title at least 4 or 5 times. Don't forget Cruz got his title back against TJ after like a 13 years lay off.

    It's not that hard to figure out...Keep defending for a few years.

    Beating Sterling and those 2 more, he will have the title defenses record already against top fighters. So, yeah. Putting 4 or 5 title defenses against top contenders would consolidate that status even more. The man is a beast.

    But he needs to prove that he can do it yet.

    Why does this GOAT talk start up every time there's a new champ? Let the guy defend a few times and then you can entertain this idea.
