    12-0 in the ufc with no controversial wins. Lost 3 rounds ever in his run and has defeated some of the toughest guys to date.

    The only person who has done the same as Khabib with 13-0, but he has a very controversial win against Tibau which you can clearly hear Rogan in disbelief of the decision when it happened.

    According to how the world is looking at goat status these days, all you now need is a 13-0 run on the UFC and retire.

    He's pretty good, but current WW is pretty shallow.

    His last defense was against a journeyman on short notice, he hugged him on the cage to a decision, like he does with most of his opponents.

    His last finish in YEARS was a controversial one against Colby.

    We'll see, he has a claim to WW GOAT for sure, but I think GSP edges him for now.

    Bringing up the Tibau fight tells me you haven't seen the Tibau fight. Tibau was less active against Khabib than Romero was against Adesanya. How the fuck can anyone legitimately say the guy won?

    He's gonna need 8 more defenses to be considered in all honesty. GSP beat 3 generations.

    If you want to put Usman in your GOAT list go ahead nobody is stopping you.

    The real question is why are you so mad at others putting Khabib in their GOAT list? Which is what this thread is really about.

    He pushed Khabib twice on the ground so clearly he won...

    Tibau landed more significant strikes and took him down twice. They only lasted a couple seconds each, but were still there. Khabin wall and stalled and couldn't get anything put together. I've shown the fight to all my friends to give them a different perspective. It was definetely a robbery.

    Usman is good though. With one more good win he’s clearly #2 WW GOAT and somewhere top15 p4p. If he continues that way, he can pass GSP in 4-5 fights

    Shallow? Lol, it's one of the most stacked divisions and probably one of the best version it's ever been.

    He was a journeyman earlier in his career but Masvidal was on a killer run and was fighter of the year prior to their bout. Very deserving of a TS and Usman took the fight on a short notice and dominated.

    Controversial my ass. The only people who believe that are Colby and his nuthuggers.

    Now I disagree for the opposite reason. GSP is still MILES above Usman any way you look at it (lenght of title run, strenght of competition etc.).
