+100 lol i've been arguing this for weeks now, finally someone with an actual brain.
You can't be the GOAT of the UFC if you only had like 3 title defences, it's simply not how it works.
your opinion vs the opinion of all the MMA :D try again
who cares about fighting lmao
The man hasn't lost a round in his career, there is no doubt that he is the most dominant lightweight ever. I don't even like Khabib but i agree he deserves to be in the conversation for GOAT status, he is the most dominant champion ever.
in my eyes jon jones is the goat plus youngest to be champion
Can't be the GOAT and also on PEDs
he is ugly and dumb but earns shitloads of money
He doesn't have a draw. He has a match that was ruled a No Contest.
Jon Jones barely won (arguably lost some of them) vs Thiago Santos, Gustafsson, Reyes. Khabib has literally smeshed everyone except Tibau. Big difference
Mr. coke-fiend steroid-guy the GOAT? Maybe but there will always be an asterisk to his accomplishments because he's a fucking retard.
But Jones is a cheater using roids so khabib > roids jones
Jon jones had been using steroids his whole career. But even if you don't take that into consideration , he still lost to reyes ( for sure 3-2) , and arguably lost his first fight with gustafsson, and had very close fight with thiago santos.
Khabib won all his fights being absolutely dominant , ( except tibau , but that fight would be equal to jones-santos in terms of decision ) , 29-0 , never bled , lost just 1 round
in terms of competition , its very close , jones had dc , machida , glover , gustafsson and vitor , others were overrated fighters like rampage jackson or mauricio rua etcc
khabib had mcgregor , dustin , RDA , barbosa , gaethje
If you don't take steroids into consideration , and if jones beats isreal adesanya / miocic , he should be the GOAT ( which is improbable if we look at his last 3 fights )
Khabib is definitely up there , but IMO he really needed that big fight win ( either GSP or tony )
Consider the disqualifications of Jon Jones due to illegal substances ;)
Khabib never tested positive tho
Jones is the best fighter on the planet, cannot be the GOAT because he's failed numerous drug tests, had controversial decsion victories and since USADA has looked pretty bad compared to his prime in his past 2 fights. Khabib may not be the goat in your opinion, it's hard to tell because it's all opinion based and fans will defend their favourite fighter but he is the most dominant fighter in ufc history, 13 straight UFC wins, arguably never lost a round. 3 title defences is more of the UFCs fault, he went 9 straight wins without losing a single round to very good fighters before he was given the title shot, usually people have it after 4-5 good wins against ranked oponents, took him double that time because of inactivity by Mcgregor, had he had his shot back in 2016 when ,mcgregor left he would have atleast 6,7 title defences. Even with 3 title defences he is the longest reigning champion in LW history, arguably the most stacked division of all time. Jones is too dirty and has too much controversy surrounding him to be considered the GOAT by many. Besides Khabib is 1000% the #1 p4p fighter right now, 3 wins on the trot losing officially 2 rounds (1 was vs a cheating mcgregor.. the 2nd 2 days ago was because of fucking blind judges... how tf did he lose the first round...) against Mcgregor,poirier,Gaethje... Jones has arguably lost to Reyes already and been hurt so often since coming back from his suspension. If he wins the HW belt he would be the GOAT imo but at LHW he was a big guy in a small divison, just like Khabib, difference is that nobody has even given khabib a bruise or make him bleed a tiny bit in 13 fights, he was just uncontested. I really with he hadnt retired, the new Khabib could be the most complete fighter in the ufc- solid underrated striking, unparraleled grappling,relentless pressure,insane fighting IQ... he could've gone and gotten the belt at WW i think as well... sad that he had to retire...
GOATs by weight classes :
Flyweight - Demetrious Johnson
Bantamweight - Dominick Cruz
Featherweight - Jose Aldo
Lightweight - Khabib Nurmagomedov
Welterweight - Georges St-Pierre
Middleweight - Anderson Silva
Light Heavyweight - Jon Jones
Heavyweight - Stipe Miocic
GOAT of MMA - Fedor Emelianenko
even jon jones said khabib is the GOAT...
Jones lost vs reyez and had very close fight with santos and gus. Kahbib is dominating everybody
Jones "lost" etc etc: THE RESULT STANDS EVEN IF UR BUTTHURT OVER THE DECISION
Jones better p4p,
mighty mouse (DJ) probably best p4p all time,
Anderson silva better p4p,
royce gracie better p4p
but Khabib is very good dont get me wrong
