    Now that Khamzat looks like he's fighting Neil Magny, suddenly The Chris is interested again. He's not helping his legacy.

    The Chris really wants to die in the ring, doesn't he?

    Jon Jones is pissed that people are calling Khabib the best ever. Jon, if you hadn't been a career-long cheater, it'd be you, bud, but you fucked it up.

    Nate Diaz is being a bit of a douche on Twitter as well, as per usual.

    Jon Jones needs to go win the HW title and then he can be the GOAT. Until then, he's always behind GSP (my personal GOAT), Anderson, Fedor, and Khabib.

    1. Georges St-Pierre
    2. Jon Jones*
    3. Anderson Silva*
    4. Fedor Emelianenko
    5. Khabib Nurmagomedov
    6. Amanda Nunes
    7+ I dunno, doesn't matter too much, guys like Mighty Mouse, DC, Jose Aldo, Stipe Miocic, Randy Couture, and Matt Hughes belong in this range.

    Personally speaking, Jones is no doubt an amazing talent and the LHW Goat. I just can't put him above Spider, Fedor, and Khabib. Too much controversy, go win the HW title please. If he does that, I think he's the 2nd best.

    1. GSP
    1B. Fedor
    3. Khabib
    4. Spider (I want to put him above Khabib; he's done more for MMA but lb for lb I think Khabib is better).
    5. Jones (Can move up to #3)
    6. Nunes

    Again, its all subjective.

    Jones is really triggered by this GOAT / P4P talk. For such a bad ass dude, he's really hollow and insecure inside. Its very sad to see, honestly. He was well on his way to being the GOAT but felt the need to cheat and use PEDs to give himself an even further advantage. IMO, he's arguably lost 2 of hist last 3 fights, too. He doesn't crack my top 4 on either list due to the steroid test and the controversies that he's had in his career. Khabib is the most dominant fighter in UFC history. He was in trouble maybe once in his career?

    Most dominant. Khabib - Never in trouble in any fight; was given a title fight way too late in his UFC career. Not a single LW in this world makes it competitive with him.

    GOAT. GSP - most dominat WW we've seen. Went on to win MW belt. Numerous title defenses. Avenged his losses.

    P4P. Khabib. I think he beats GSP in a fight but that is no slight to GSP.

    GSP's game-planning was second-to-none but Khabib is a better wrestler and grappler. Both guys in their prime it's a toss-up fight. I have no interest in seeing it today.

    A few fighters have chimed in to support Bryce Mitchell's anti-mask/optional mask stance. I really don't get why caring about other people is so hard. A 'personal choice' you make to not wear a mask can spread the virus from you to someone else. It's irresponsible.

    Diego Sanchez called out Dan Hardy. D'Nardy laughed at him. Not a good look for Diego.

    Werdum signs with PFL, will compete in their HW tournament next year.

    Not quite the end of the era with guys like JDS and Andrei Arlovski still fighting, but close.

    Potentially Do Bronx's one and only chance at getting to the title go through El Cucuy.
