Tony was offered Chandler but refused the fight. They might shaft him as a result.One guy said UFC should do a 4 man tournament for the vacant belt. He called for DP vs Conor and Justin vs Chandler. I don't think it's fair to leave out Tony when he's only lost to Justin after a 12 fight streak. I'd put Tony vs Chandler. Especially after Justin's loss to Khabib and losses to Eddie and DP. That way get to see where Tony and Chandler both stand and the real belt would be on the line at the end of the road.
Indeed. Khabib is undefeated while Jones isn't.Top 5 Goat yes but no number 1 for me. Look at Jon Jones resume compared to Khabibs. Different ball parks
Yeah but Jones was offered a title fight way earlier so ofcourse that affects the number of title defenses.Jones fought in 15 championship fights in the Ufc beating the likes of Shogun, DC, Rampage, Vitor, Gus, Rashad, Lyoto, Chael to name a few
Khabib fought in 4 championship fights beating 11th ranked and one day replacement ragin Al. Conor who had been inactive for 2 years, Dustin and Justin and spent the majority of them fights boring us to death with constant wrestling
As i said, different ball parks
Alright this is simply the dumbest post I've seen all day here. Connor's legacy isn't anywhere near Khabib's and nobody who understands MMA would make an argument that his resume is better than the man who decimated and humbled him, en route to a 29-0 record while retiring as the undisputed champion.For me Conors resume is more impressive than Khabibs, so is Stipes, not to mention the likes of DC, Mighty Mouse. Khabib is a absolute beast no question and without doubt he is the most dominant champ we have ever seen but at the end of the day his calibre of opponent for the vast majority of his career means IMO he can not even be considered to be the number 1 goat
Khabib lacks the depth of quality wins that Jones, GSP or Anderson have. His top 5 wins are good but after that you are quickly getting to guys like Iaquinta and Michael Johnson. Then on top of that 16 of his 29 wins came from fighting at a domestic level in Russia, often against guys who were inexperienced and/or had losing records. I mean. Fedor gets criticised for record padding but he spent a higher percentage of his career competing in the big leagues against name fighters, plus he had the extra factor of being a small HW when considering him in the GOAT discussion.Yeah but Jones was offered a title fight way earlier so ofcourse that affects the number of title defenses.
And why is Chael a feather in his cap. Chael was a middleweight at his best. Fighting smaller men who made the jump up isnt somethijg to prop him up with.
Worse record. Took PEDs. Wasn't as dominant in his wins. So yes, different ball parks.
