    A HW Title win would cement his legacy as GOAT and tbh it's hard to argue against him been the GOAT right now.

    I dont think so personally, I think there are very valid arguments as to why DJ or GSP could be considered the 'GOAT'.

    I agree though that a Jones HW title + defense would set him apart.

    GSP and DJ are valid arguments. They've all fought killers and dominated their respective divisions.

    I just personally think that JJ is so dynamic as a fighter he is difficult to touch.

    On a side note: Will the HW division have ever seen anyone so skilled at both striking and wrestling?

    Jones striking hasn't looked great for a while, he'll clearly stand out at HW , but that's because it's the worst mens division in the ufc (skillset wise)

    What if Khabib beats Gaethje then GSP? He's up there with JJ. Obviously if JJ goes heavyweight and beats Miocic and Ngannou then it's a different story

    GSP is nearly 40 and hasn't fought in 3 years, im not sure why Khabib beating this GSP would elevate him to the GOAT?

    It's something we hear often after a flat JJ performance but I guess we will see when he goes to HW how motivated he was for his last few fights. He destroyed Gus on his return and then went the full 5 for the next 3.

    It would be hard to argue with either if they both accomplished that.

    He'd be a stonewall GOAT for me. To reign in the most competitive division in MMA history with that kind of resume would be levels ahead of Jones's tainted legacy. GSP is closer, but his level of opponents don't boast the quality of Khabib's. Not a knock, but let's be realistic. Khabib has faced a murderers' row.

    That's it Jones has a tainted career, if only he was completely clean. What he's done out of the ring shouldn't be an issue for UFC GOAT but as far as in the ring he's failed tests and the DQ loss

    Who's left for Khabib let's be honest

    Gaethje is next in October
    Then he will push for the GSP fight and that's the only fight GSP would return to do, UFC love money and that's is big money right there.

    Would still like to see the Tony fight just to see if Tony could damage him and do some crazy moves but he has to work his way there, a win against Poirier. Nobody else left in the division after that he's cleaned them out. I doubt he would move up to face Usman either.

    Gaethje October 2020
    Tony March 2021
    GSP September 2021 in front of fans in Abu Dhabi

    To be fair to Jones if he was in drugs pre USADA then most if the people he fought probably were.

    Exactly why I don't consider him a UFC GOAT when you compare him to others who haven't failed USADA tests.

    Feeling like Jan gets it done.

    Would love for the King of ❤️❤️❤️❤️ to win but can't see Adesanya losing. I think he picks him apart.

    I believe that BIG JOHN will win and he will become the first Polish champion of the men's UFC, it will be a very difficult fight, but I believe that he will win. Everybody Loves an Underdog until they make it. CMON JANEK
