    Or at least they never show that they care about it.

    So it's basically between GSP, Fedor and Silva, because these dudes are all secure enough where they dont feel the need to tell you how great they are, and when they're told they're great they try to play it down and give someone else credit.

    Dudes like Khabib, Jones, Izzy.... these are insecure narcissists and egomaniacs who seem obsessed with their own status.

    GOAT is more than just accomplishment in the octagon/ring, true royalty needs to know how to carry themselves, and dudes that blow their own horn too much are just pretenders imo.

    Silva, GSP, and Fedor were the originals.

    Khabib has never called himself the GOAT though (and he isn't, only casuals think so).

    Gsp is always taking about the subject of who is goat, silva was on peds, so Fedor is the only one who truly doesn't care

    You know which fighter never ever said or implied that he was the GOAT?

    Gerald Meerschaert.

    Fedor is the GOAT. Everyone else just pretending.

    To be fair, GSP only talks about it a lot because he's asked about it all the time. Unlike Anderson and Fedor, GSP is very active doing interviews, media spots, and so forth.

    TS does have a point, though. All three of these guys are very humble about their accomplishments.

    So Muhammed Ali is DEFINITELY not the HW GOAT. Good to know!

  9. The GOAT is whoever was best at mixed martial arts, not whoever carried himself the best. To dismiss "dudes like Khabib, Jones, Izzy" over something that has no relevance to their accomplishments seems silly.

    Maybe the other "GOATs" haven't been trashed by haters for years and feel the need to respond.

    Also Jones has the best case for GOAT and the fact people even need to misrepresent his PED test record is an admission they couldn't argue against him otherwise.

    The closest he ever came was asking to be ranked #1 P4P after his last fight. That's all he asked for. And to be fair, he deserved it more than Jones, so it wasn't exactly an outlandish request

    All the so called goats all have a history of ducking and dodging... there was never a goat..

    -fedor was ducking reem before we knew fedor was past his prime.

    -Mighty Mouse was ducking the shit out of TJ and we didn’t even know about the EPO yet.

    -GSP ducked hendrix rematch cause he knew he lost the first one n feared he’d lost again.

    -Jon Jones is ducking anything and everything related to fighting ever again... the list goes on

    -kabib held down a bunch of gatekeeper strikers n ducked tony for years till tony got old then kabib just had other contenders take tony out for him

    -Anderson ducked any noteworthy opponent during his big run

    So you're just gonna assume Silva was on PED's but you're also gonna assume Fedor wasn't?

    This is true, however, Khabib and Izzy literally have zero argument they're the GOAT

    He begged to be ranked #1 P4P. Not to mention, his father instilled in him an obsession over having an undefeated record.

    Silva's the GOAT until Jones wins the HW belt. Facts.

    I disagree with the thesis of this thread. Being the greatest mma fighter of all time is based on being better at MMA than anyone else. personal vanity or insecurities are irrelevant.

    I think all the guys who many consider as the greatest really do care about their status, and they should. They worked hard for their success and they should be able to enjoy it in retirement.

    Guys like Fedor and GSP would never brag about it though, they are a rare breed of being great while remaining humble.

    P4P ≠ GOAT
