    Jon Jones still has PEDs issues, and up to this point this guy hasn't changed.
    And yet majority of you still think he is the GOAT.

    While the same people are saying Anderson Silva cannot be the GOAT because of PEDs issues?

    lol both jones and anderson have been torn to shit on the boards.

    anderson is just irrelevant now so no one cares.

    but that being said, both fighters are cheating pieces of shit.

    He doesn't get a pass. We all know he is a PED user. He is also the GOAT.

    I don't like Jon Jones, everytime he fights I want him to lose, but he is the best fighter I have ever seen.

    Because the UFC is doing everything they can to sweep Jon Jones steroids under the rug while they're not doing it for Andersson.

    Many people -- and pretty much every casual -- believe 100% every word they UFC says like gospel.

    Not to mention the legions of JJ fans who will support him even if he pulls a gun in the octagon because they only care about his undefeated record staying intact.

    This is why.
    Your worth to the company is your current value at the present time. Jon is the future, Anderson is the past

    Silva doesn't get eliminated from the discussion due to PED's imo, he's just not the GOAT because...Jones is better.

    Personally, I just don't care that much about steroids. I don't like obviously that some guys try to play within the mandated rules and some don't. I just think once you start eliminating guys from that discussion based on using banned substances, you start eliminating too many guys. I guess I'm just cynical maybe, but I'd imagine there's a lot of guys who used pre-USADA and never got caught. Maybe they stopped with enhanced testing, but because they were never caught under the old system they don't get a black mark? Or how about in Japan, where there was NO testing and we are about 99% sure most of the big name Pride guys were using.

    IDK, to me the GOAT is just the best fighter, all the other stuff is background noise. Jones is the best fighter I've ever seen. So for all his flaws as a person (we all have them, but damn this dude REALLY has made him difficult to like) he's the GOAT.

    Because Jon Jones is on a big win streak, Anderson Silva is not.
