    Jordan is the undisputed GOAT of basketball. He revolutionized the way the game was played and did things that had never been done before.


    Wilt Chamberlain was 7 ft 1 at a time when no one else was and but he also dominated the game. Jon Jones is the Wilt Chamberlain or Kareem Abdul Jabbar of MMA. He is creative and exciting but not revolutionary.


    Jon Jones is 6 ft 4 with 84 inches of reach. THAT IS WHY HE IS SO DOMINANT and only when he fought GUS who is 6 ft 5 with 81 inches of reach does he have a fight that was a controversial decision.

    At the time they played (Wilt and KAJ) there was no MJ. So they were the respective goats.

    The rest is just blah blah blah...

    I agree with OP. It's cheating to have physical advantages. Jon Jones's eye poking and reach are ruining the sport.

    Jones is the LHW GOAT and on his way to becoming the all time GOAT. Deal with it.

    And just who do you call the GOAT OP? You are obviously grasping for anything possible after your fighter lost.

    OK then who's the GOAT in your opinion OP?

    Not that it really matters because in the words of the Great Bones... your argument sucks!

    You are so stupid its unreal! How his his reach ruining the sport? Should cain be penalised for his superior cardio or JDS chin? You can't blame someone for their physical capabilities or the way they were born.

    Ok yes the eyepokes is to of order but his reach? STFU

    Unfair weight cutting. Jones should be a heavyweight, probably walks around at 260+ and his arms aren't fair. Fair is fair.
