    If they were in their prime? José aldo? Holloway? Conor ? or Volkanovski?
    Conor vs Volkanovski would have been interesting. Too bad he can't make that weight anymore.

    Still Aldo but he loses to Max regardless of his prime. Just a bad matchup for him.

    Aldo is a notch below Volk, Holloway and McGregor
    he never was better than them at anything, he's somewhere around Mendes' level

    Still Aldo, but obviously both Max and Volk aren't far away.

    Volk will be the goat when its all said and done at 145. I love aldo, one of my fav but Volk is on another level. GSP level shit against Holloway and Ortega.

    Still no one at Aldo's level.

    Holloway was getting there and Volk is catching up. Both however are not dominant as Aldo's reign.

    Weight cutting IV drip using Conor was pretty fken good at FW. Unfortunately I dont think stayed around long enough to be in GOAT discussions.

    Post prime Aldo is still the last guy to rock Max outside of Poirier in their first fight. It is what it is.

    When someone passes Aldo in title defenses they are the GOAT at FW, Aldo was never in any battles in his first few title defenses like Volk has been. Aldo dominated his fights and didn't slow down until way later when it started to catch up to him.
