Remember when Khabib fans judged Conor on title defenses?

    Now they say Jon Jones' incredible record of defending his title is irrelevant and that Khabib is GOAT.
    Well, if title defenses no longer matter then Conor's victories over Aldo, Max, Dustin & Chad cement his status as FW GOAT.

    Well their argument is that title defenses on PEDS don't matter. Way to leave that out TS.

    Yea? How much damage had Jon taken through his first 4 title fights? How many rounds did he lose. Let's compare apple to apple like khabib

    Khabib is not GOAT.....Conor still has 0 defenses. What's you're point?

    Jones has a better GOAT claim due to his overall resume and length of dominance. Khabib has a better current p4p claim due to his level of competition and the method of victory in more recent years. However both have arguments to be made in both categories.

    2X PED DQs him. Period. As far as Canner goes, he is the happiest dude in Ireland that Khabib retired. He will always be number 2 at best and he knows it.

    You aren't wrong but remember Jon's reign was helped by numerous fouls and PEDS.

    Let the Kebab fans have their moment and let them retire from Sherdog in a week.

    Good riddance

    Khabib had a longer road to the title so you are comparing apples to oranges.

    You will forever be haunted, Khabib will always be brought up in the GOAT discussions.

    I won’t get into a big discussion about that right now, but that’s certainly something one should consider. It’s all subjective though, people get way too up in arms about all of this, especially here.
