    What are some of your UFC-related unpopular opinions that you don't get to share often?

    I'll start: Dariush over Johnson was not a robbery.

    I think Silva is the GOAT and I don't think he was on PEDs his entire career.

    Contrary to popular opinion, I don't think 90% of the ufc roster is on PEDs

    Jones, GSP and Silva are all ahead of Fedor in GOAT status.

    I think that Jones and Silva are the 2 best MMA fighters of all-time, based on skill and accomplishments. GSP is in the Top 3, too.

    A decent amount of HWs give Jones problems/beat him.

    Gus beat Jones. Fluke elbow not happening in the rematch.

    Miocic beat JDS.

    Who specifically do you believe would beat him? I don't disagree, just curious.

    I think a fighter can still be great with a fair amount of losses on their record.

    I agree, to an extent, but I think Jones beats at least 90% of the HW roster with his skill, his reach, and if all else fails, his cardio.

    There is still a case for Rich Franklin to be considered top MW ever, thus far. I believe Silva was roided to the gills when he twice beat Ace. Weidman is my favorite MW of all time, but with his loss to Rockhold, I think there is an argument for Rich still.

    Cormier vs Jones being a competitive fight.

    According to most here, the accepted meme was that it was a one-sided beatdown from start to finish, and DC has zero chance in the rematch.

    Gus/Jones was very close and I'd love to see a rematch some day, providing Gus puts some wins together and Jones wins his belt back.

    I need to rewatch the JDS/Miocic fight, I had Stipe edging it 48-47 the first time.

    It was a very competitive fight. DC has a great chance in the rematch, but I can't blame people for picking Jones because, well, he's Jon Jones.

    Of the top 15 specifically...

    Werdum
    Cain(maybe, not so confident about that one)
    Stipe
    Reem
    Rothwell
    Junior
    Browne - would lose, but make it close

    Maybe Frank too...just for the sub threats.

    RDA beats McGregor by TKO in the 3rd of 4th, no later. This will be from strikes on the ground.

    Reebok is good for the lower-level fighters, for sure. Some of the bigger guys that are not Champions, I would say it is worse for them.
