    Was/Is Jones GOAT? No. He needed champ favoritism to get through some of his fights.

    Khabib retired undefeated and was never really challenged. What fighter can say that?

    Fight career possibly, but Usman, Shevchenko, Khabib, three just there that are in the argument. He doesn't dominate the upcoming elite like the others. He points grinds them, which is not IMO P4P level. Anthony Smith could have chucked an Aljo Sterling and won, he definitely scraped past Reyes by the width of a line of coke. He us getting older but he needs to step up in HW to cement his place, which is possible if he could beat a Gane or Ngannou.

    His PED use raises questions but how many other fighters are using?

    His dodgy lifestyle is irrelevant to this conversation. This is not politics.
