Jones, Khabib, GSP, Silva, Aldo: UFC fans name ‘best GOAT rating’ and rule out McGregor

It is difficult to determine the best of all time in any profession, but perhaps none are more difficult than mma?

Such is the longevity in such a physically demanding career that the comings and goings of MMA big names are regular. The faster a name becomes a superstar in sports, the faster it descends through the ranks.

Yet, for sane reasons, people will still regularly debate GOATs on social media, with a fan’s recent ranking grabbing some attention.

“Proper MMA” was so confident in his top 10 that he called it “Best GOAT ranking in all of MMA.”

Let’s take a look.
