funny how you don't mention any names, though. and we were talking LW GOAT here, not all of MMA.
the guy in his prime was a killer. despite having 8 losses on his record, only 3 were at lightweight, and one was a controversial decision and arguably when he was past his prime (whether it was or not, i don't really care.) BJ Penn is pretty easily the best ever at LW currently, and it's not really all that close.
seriously, who is first if not for BJ? Gomi? i mean... there's no one else.
