This is not hyperbole on my part. If he gets past Cain again and pulls wins over Overeem, the surging Cormier and maybe even the ultra improved Werdum, I think he'd be in Fedor territory as the GOAT HW.
Cigano's been a stud for the longest time without as much as a blip in his record since joining the UFC, the saying "the sky's the limit" comes to mind and unlike Jones or Anderson, I think Cigano has the advantage of being in the uber-cool HW "baddest man on the planet" division and has a likeable personna that resembles a happy, humble Terminator that gets over huge with fans.
Fedor had an awesome aura and I believe Cigano could seriously broach that level of invincibility within two years if not sooner.
This is spot on. Next to Fedor's run this is the second best HW winning streak. If he did manage the wins over Cain, Cormier, Overeem and Werdum he would no doubt be the greatest HW in MMA history. He is already the greatest heavyweight in UFC history.

Never a big fan of Jones, but he gets slandered far too often. You may not like who he is, but he is definitely one of the best in the game. show some respect.
The problem with Jones is he is so fake. His humility is blatantly ungenuine. I would prefer it if his was cocky and not putting on an act.
