    Khabib demanded the #1 spot and after he got it, said in Russia when he got back that he's now #1 and there's nothing left to prove in MMA.

    Jones meanwhile has been rage-bombing social media, telling everyone why he is number 1... a hundred times.


    Meanwhile, Fedor never said that he was the best. He always maintained that anyone can be defeated on any day. This was during his 10 year undefeated streak too.

    GSP as well, always complimented others and never took credit for being #1 or GOAT. He always maintained respect for others, including never under-estimating his opponents. Fedor shared this trait too.


    So, what say you Sherdog? who are your top 2 GOATs from the 4?

    It largely depends on how you definite GOAT.

    IMO, over time GSP and Jones are probably the fighters with the best case under "normal" conceptualizations of GOAT.

    This is leaving out PED issues for Jones (and Silva I guess).

    P4P doesn't mean you're goat. It just means you're P4P the best fighter in the world, right now. It's current.

    All time GSP is ahead of Khabib, But I'd still prefer Khabib. I'm biased though.

    Fedor is quietly sitting in his home in Stary Oskol reading a book while these fools are all yapping about who is the GOAT. He probably has no idea Khabib even fought this past weekend.

    Silva and Jones are the clear-cut #1 and #2. Nobody touches them in accomplishments.

    Is it even possible for a fighter to meet the strict criteria for GOAT? MMA is a sport that is constantly evolving and sooner or later you'll see fighters who showcase better skills as well as better physical ability from time to time.

    This vid here is interesting though, if you exclude those who have been caught for PEDs.

    Never heard Khabib claimed he is GOAT, he said he deserves being considered as #1 P4P by UFC. That's it.

    It's funny I rarely see posters agree on much, but it seems like most of us agree that Fedor and gsp are the two greatest ever. Pretty cool

    "Khabib is humble"

    *demands #1 spot*

    Let's be honest. Khabib is a monster, and that's okay in the fight game.

    But Anderson, Fedor, and GSP are the ones who have displayed true humility.

    You must be kidding me. Anderson is humble. He was a total idiot in the cage. Refused to engage several times. Only fighter I ever saw a ref push and tell to get fighting. Even Dana commented on his antics.

    Honestly all the hate being spewed at these fighters lately is really showing who the fuckboy posters are on this site, new and old.

    I'll shamelessly keep claiming GSP is GOAT. But the people who disagree by trying to tear down the accomplishments GSP in an idiotic manner (or whichever GOAT they're targetting, for that matter) is getting pretty old.

    With the exception of Jones and his PED use. The more time goes by, the more skeptical everything that happened around that looks. The doctor (Dr. Daniel Eichner) who provided the opinions to USADA (which they based their decision on) literally did a 180 recently around Felipe Barrera (baseball player) about the same drug and similar testing windows. It was so inconsistent with the Jones case that Barrera literally used the UFC and Dr. Daniel Eichner's opinions about oral turnibol at the time in his lawsuit against the MLB - https://www.classaction.org/media/barrera-v-major-league-baseball-et-al.pdf

    These GOAT discussions are stupid because everyone has different criteria. For me the criteria are people who are a champion in the ring, treat their opponents with respect (when it is deserved) and are a real role model for kids (and adults too really).
