People always say 'Stipe is the HW GOAT' 'Stipe is better than Cain' 'Stipe is better than Fedor' etc etc… which is possibly true if they were to fight right now, I mean Stipe would be the favourite against either but could lose either fight also. But I think this GOAT Stipe people speak of would have got smashed by either of them in their primes, the Cain that was smashing everyone would have made short work of him imo, and there is really nothing Stipe has done to prove otherwise. Stipe is a top HW, but I don't think hes better than Cormier or these guys. Who do you rank the true HW GOAT? ignoring the parts where they declined through age or injurys? I rank them like this. 1. Fedor 2. Cain Velasquez 3. Daniel Cormier 4. Stipe Miocic 5. Could be a lot of diff guys with arguments for each, former champs like Randy, Sylvia, Brock, Carwin, Mir, JDS, BIg Nog, Werdum, guys who have consistently won like Overeem, Kharitonov, Barnett, Arlovski, Ngannou, but no clear guy near the 4th spot.
