    1. Jon 'steroid bones' Jones - still puts him number 1 even with the controversy
    2. George 'wrestle**** rush' St-Pierre
    3. Anderson Silva
    4. Daniel 'double cheeseburger' Cormier
    5. Fedor Emelianenko

    6-10 in random order - Aldo, Demetrious, Cruz, Hughes, Liddell.

    I'll prob rank McGregor 5-6 if he beats Khabib.

    Floyd will probably float some story to TMZ about betting $10 million on the outcome of the Khabib vs Conor fight. :lol:

    A lot of Conor haters will be triggered about a statement like that, but you can definitely make that case on the basis of his being a multiple time, multiple weight champion. The work that Holloway and Poirier have done since losing to Conor enhances Conor's claim.

    I wouldn't rate him that highly though. I might be a Conor hater, but its not because of his personality. I hate it when a fighter gets preferential treatment.

    I was a fanatical Cub Swanson fan when Conor jumped him in line and when Conor didn't defend against Frankie at 145 made me even more resentful. Let's say he had beaten Cub Swanson, instead of Siver. And instead of getting sidetracked with the fight with Floyd and the ensuing layoff and he'd gotten wins against Ferguson and Edgar, he would be a plausible GOAT candidate.

    Id be surprised.

    I think the long lay off will cost him, i can see him gassing after a couple of rounds then being grounded and pounded then submitted.

    If he wins he deserves a lot of credit, this is a money fight though, 3 to 5 years max from now he will be done, maybe sooner !

    1) Fedor Emelianenko
    2) George Saint Pierre
    3) Matt Hughes
    4) Daniel Cormier
    5) Randy Couture
    6) Stipe Miocic
    7) Anderson Silva

    If Conor beats Khabib he’s going in my 7 place.

    Do you think Miocic can comeback and regain the title ? I know he had a good run, but I think I overrated him a little. I expected him to over power Cormier down the straight, I was shocked at the KO

    Agreed, with the time out common sense would suggest he's up against it against an attrition fighter in Khabib, but that long left zero's in and hurts or drops everyone it touches. Early KO Connor or a beatdown stoppage for Khabib. I don't ever see this fight going to the scorecards

    I think he can, but just about everyone in the heavyweight division is old, I dont expect any of them to have good runs, including Cormier.

    I overestimated the talent pool of the heavyweights.

    McGregor will get destroyed in this fight. Its just a question of how Khabib wants to win.

    Khabib is quite easy to hit though if kept at range, a decent jab could set up the left and Lightsout for Khabib, Conors biggest asset is his boxing skills and accuracy, i can see him KO ing Khabib early but then again he hits the floor youd say he could get battered by Khabib.

    Its a great fight i cant wait, just hope there isnt a pull out by Conor, i just have a feeling he doesnt want this fight and may look for a way out.
