    Also, Adesanya is from New Zealand, Australia and New Zealand are separate countries, and Africa is a continent.

    Brazil - maybe add Nunes. Perhaps a bit soon though (I could see her lose to Shev) but as far as we know right now she seems like the best female fighter ever.
    US - add Mighty Mouse. And maybe Cruz. And perhaps a tons of others like Chuck, Randy, etc.
    You cannot be a UFC GOAT after only 6 UFC fights. (unless you had some big fights in a big org previously)
    Hall of famer, but not really commonly regarded as a GOAT

    Naturally, it depends on the level of opponents.
    But you can't say anyone who just got their first title fight a week ago is a GOAT, that's just laughable.

    If all 6 fights were title fights then you'd have a case.
