Jon Jones GOAT. That has to be official now right?

But damn I feel bad for DC. WTF Rogan? You say fighters shouldn't be interviewed after getting KO'd and yet you do it anyway... That was hard to watch. And now losers are going to use that image of DC crying like its the new crying Jordan meme... Iv'e already started seeing it.

Jones vs Lesnar? I'm keen. Although rematch vs Gustafson would be a better fight.

Come on.... LHW has to be the shallowest division in the UFC. Jones is good, but DC made a mistake blocking that kick low. The finish was brutal, though Jones wasnt dominating that fight up to the kick, quite the opposite. Spamming teep kicks skewed the FM stats for Jones.

There are no lucky strikes in combat sports, you throw them all with intent. DC will see the tape and know his own mistake cost him the fight.

A bit tongue in cheek but i really think that in a sport that is so young there is no GOAT. It is also far too subjective. Bones is good, no doubt but after only 8 years competing, he doesnt hold a candle to the longevity of Silva and Fedor. He isnt a game changer like Gracie, nor as naturally gifted as GSP and Johnson. He has owned the LHW division recently but so did Randy Couture back in the day. After he retires he will be spoken about with acclaim for sure but this sport has had many amazing and talented fighters over the years who stood out for different resons. Some, such as Dan Henderson, Jeremy Horn or Diego Sanchez, never gave in and went to war whenever they fought. Others such as Romero were incredibly athletic and would have succeeded in multiple sports. Whilst the likes of Liddle, MacGregor etc..have transcended the sport and become mainstream stars, others have fought and won in multiple weight classes usually against guys bigger than them.

Its just too hard to claim anyone as GOAT but if i had to it would be the spider.

I get what you're saying.

Gsp did lose against Hughes and Serra tho.
I think Jones is the best fighter the ufc has seen tho.

Really? Geez what a moron, as if he wouldn't have known he'd get caught. Not the brightest spark is Bones by the sounds of it. Can see his life turning into a bit of a train-wreck ala Tiger Woods TBH.
UFC are dumb enough and money-hungry enough to let Bones fight again in the future I reckon. Ban the goose for life, he is a slow-learner.

Yep career over. I cant believe he fought his way back from the last steroid ban only to capture the title under the influence again. Some people are just too arrogant.

Lends a bit of weight to the Diaz brothers claims a couple of years back that the whole UFC is on drugs....
