    DC,Stipe, JDS, and Cain would all kill Fedor.

    DC and Jones are top GOAT contenders. Both would ruin your heroes

    All bullshit goat talk aside can we just all agree on one thing: DC is right now the face of this sport. A 40 year old chubby former two time olympian kicking ass when most expect him to lose. Fedor and Big Nog are probably higher on those goat lists but DC is the toughest SOB in this bussiness right now.

    You can’t lose to Matt Hamill and be GOAT.

    Well, at least you are not going after GSP this time.

    Actually it's Vitor Belfort.
    Vitor is undefeated at Franklinweight.

    Actually no, in theory the top 5 GOAT's could all be from a single weight division. And in practice most lists of say top ten boxing GOAT's will contain many instances of some weight divisions (particularly HW and MW), and far fewer instances of other weight divisions.

    For instance, I've seen lists of boxing top 5's which have both Muhammad Ali and Joe Louis in it - though only one of them could be the GOAT HW.

    The obvious difference though is that Fedor hasn't failed a test whilst Anderson has pissed hot twice.

    GOAT Shooting Guard - Michael Jordan

    GOAT Small Forward - Lebron James

    My argument makes perfect sense. Learn your NBA bro.

    Another guy who doesn't realize what a GOAT is...it means greatest of all time, as in there can and will only ever be one at any given time. Can't be a GOAT..there's only the GOAT , and silly as it sounds , is a relative term.

    D.c.s resume is far superior to gsp. Fedor got killed by nog, mitrione, hendo, Maldonado, and werdum. They just weren’t losses...he died.

    D.c.’s losses to jones are legitimate. Jones stamina and demeanor in the first fight would be greatly affected without roids. Jones also ASSUREDEDLY would have lost to Gus without roids (about half think he lost regardless), and who knows how jones would have performed against d.c. without roids the second time. Jones certainly didn’t think he could win clean, so why should we? Therefore it’s only ethical to exclude jones and clearly give D.C. lhw goat. As for heavyweight, d.c. has a resume more stacked than Cain and without the 2 losses. He beat stipe who was assumed to be the ufc hw goat, and has a better resume than Cain. Fedor has already had embarrassing losses.

    It’s relatively safe to conclude that d.c. is the lhw and the hw goat, and the #1 p4p goat.

    Aldo got faced by Conor and twice by max. Considering him the goat is absolutely subjective at this point. Furthermore, he hasn’t been sharp since usada, and doesn’t have a very deep ufc record. Max has a bigger and more impressive ufc resume. Conor has the most impressive ufc resume at Fw.

    As time goes on people are going to certainly forget about Aldo’s leg kicks in wec, and just remember him as a stepping stone or max and Conor.

    Is Lance Armstrong the GOAT of the Tour De France? No? How come? Oh because he was a lowlife cheat. That makes sense. That's the kind of reasoning a smart person uses :)

    sorry but GoAts can only be double champs with excellent records. That automatically eliminates anderson, jones temporarily and aldo. DC already has a good he record so its not far fetched to proclaim DC is GoAt. I agree fedor can be considered the real GoAT. followed by DC, jones if he actually can fight clean and miocic.

    miocic >>>everyone on that list barring fedor. Context and level of competition matters. miocic defeated far better competition than aldo,anderson and possibly even gsp.
