    Other than the top 4 which is in no order (Jon Jones, Silva, Fedor and GSP.) the MMA GOAT lists are kinda unclear. You have Khabib and Mighty Mouse up there but you don’t have much depth.


    Is Conor a top 10 fighter of all time?

    he’s the first UFC double champion and took out Aldo, Max Holloway and Dustin Poirier. Yes he lacks title defenses (which is an issue) but he makes up for it with his run at FW and his overall resume.

    Below Rich Franklin, BJ Penn, Hughes, Hendo, Aldo, Khabib, MM, Chuck, Sylvia, Couture, Wanderlei, Cejudo, and pretty much every other guy who's defended a title.

    i agree with your sentiment partially but I don’t think he’s below a few of those guys

    Not even top 10 for talent. Number 1 for what he achieved.

    He just wrecked Cowboy and if he beats Diego Sanchez next I would have him at number 1.

    He'll forever be GOAT of money earnings so that should cushion the blow of not being on the all time fighters list.

    Even below Forrest Griffin and Matt Serra. At least they defended.

    I would probably put him somewhere between 11-20 right now. He won 2 belts, which is incredibly impressive no matter how you paint it. I guess the biggest strike against him is he hasn't really had longstanding divisional dominance like the fighters in the top 10 of all time like Fedor, GSP, Anderson, Jones, Demetrius, Aldo, Khabib, Hughes, Big Nog, etc.

    I would equate him to having a similar ranking of someone like Randy Couture

    He's ahead of them in money, if that matters, but not in accomplishments. All of those guys have multiple defenses, Conor has 0. 10-2 is a good record, but not as impressive when only 3 of those were title fights.

    He needs many more impressive wins to be in that list.
    He have the potential to be up there ... in several years
