    This is probably because you can't think for yourself. Riv shouldn't have had to tell you that anyways.

    At his peak, he was the GOAT. But the time aspect of Greatest of All Time has moved on; Fedor made some poor career decisions in following the Fink, and there are other fighters who have done things comparable to his accomplishments. You could make an argument that Anderson and Georges have done enough to be in the running. All three fighters have their flaws, and it appears Anderson may well be making the same shit quality decisions that Fedor did in his twilight.

    If Anderson had the heart or fight anyone mentality of say a Hendo/Nog/Vitor...Hands down he'd be the GOAT to me..But his prissy bullshit attitude/picking and choosing fights has him behind Hendo/Nog IMO.

    GSP didn't get beat up by Shields in the standup by any stretch. Especially when you factor in the significance of eyepoke that GSP sustained early on in the fight, which messed up his vision and depth perception for almost the entire fight, and yet he still managed to cruise through with basically one good eye.

    Once again, you simply don't have a clue what you're talking about.
    He's a pretty blatant troll. I mean comon, he called Kongo vs OSP a superfight.

    Except for Fedor since he fought world class opponents who were bigger than him on a regular basis...

    yet when does GSP have to do it?
    The minute he says he has no interest in fighting the #1 contender in his weight class, and starts talking about superfights.

    Until he does that, the two situations are absolutely not comparable, unless you are an idiot.

    He really doesnt have to do anything, its his choice... but when we are talking legacies, P4P status, GOAT, etc... It would have to be an issue.
    A fight between Georges and Anderson would have zero impact on p4p unless Georges somehow won. A fight between Jones and Anderson would have zero impact unless Anderson somehow won.

    There isn't a fighter that can really be considered the GOAT, so it really wouldn't effect that, either.
