    take gsp's name off the list, he's busy demanding more money and easy 145 fights. he sits in the crowd now hoping conor picks him to win the lottery. meanwhile anderson is taking 2 day notice fights and almost winning

    Fedor

    -No cheating
    -No losses to cans
    -Finished fights
    -Didn't concede a round in 10 years (unlike Jones, GSP, Silva)
    -Second most top wins at HW (behind Nog only)
    -7 years straight ranked #1 (longest ever)
    -Never got outstruck in his prime (unlike Silva, Jones, GSP)
    -10 year domination in the most dangerous divison
    -Didn't need to cut weight
    -Only lost when he was out of prime (visibly slowed down, coaches said he wasn't the same before Werdum)
    -Didn't have bad style match ups
    -Silva took more damage against Sonnen, GSP took more damage against Serra and Jones took more damage against Gus than Fedor did in 10 years.

    Fedor by far.

    Honestly Big Nog is better than some of the fighters in the OP.

    I voted GSP. Royce Gracie should be an option as well.

    Dang Fedor running away with this poll. I picked Anderson. Record 10 UFC title defenses in spectacular fashion. Didn't get beat up by Fabio Maldonado. All the things that make the GOAT.

    I'm going with GSP - for me it's between GSP and Bones.
    Anderson during his prime, didn't have stylistic nightmare fights, and Sonnen almost got the W the first time - he's a machine but can't deal with wrestlers well. Fedor on the other hand, had a super nice and exciting career, but can't call him GOAT since I haven't seen him fight the best, as simple as that.
    GSP on the other hand faced pretty much every style out there and was able to dominate - he is the P4P and GOAT for me.

    Not to mention that GSP retired on a winning streak, while Fedor and Anderson going out on mad losses - blame the age, and etc., but that's their choice.

    No he shouldnt. Great for his time but he isnt close to being GOAT level.

    The guy who just got knocked out then awoken by ensuing punches from a LHW can will get the most votes, the sherdog voting poll doesn't dictate who's GOAT because it's just a bunch of fan boys living in a dream world.

    It might sound a bit crazy but I think Eddie needs to be considered for light weight GOAT. He is now one of the most decorated fighters in the history of the sport.
