    If he didn't keep running into off-cage troubles, yes.

    He's a GOAT talent if not THE GOAT talent. But there's stipulations. There's other guys in the conversation that don't have any of those stipulations. Still, it's remarkable the kind of career he's had despite the issues as well as the self sabotage.

    He's been in serious trouble in multiple fights. And would have lost at least one fight without his coach handing it to him on a platter between rounds as what he should do.

    Khabib has never been in trouble ever and only officially lost 1 round ever. Pound for pound, it's gotta be Khabib. 29 fights and lost 1 round? What the **** is that?

    If you ignore weight classes, yes, Jon Jones is probably that guy.

    Well he got dropped by MJ and he only fought 5 top guys(Barboza, Conor, Dustin, RDA, Gaethje) in his career.

    Amanda Nunes on the other hand beat Ronda, Tate, Cyborg, and Holm in the first round. He's the LW goat and I'd put him in the top ten but best is a stretch. For me the top ten are

    HW - Fedor, Couture
    LHW - Jones, Rutten
    MW - Henderson
    WW - GSP, Hughes
    LW - Khabib
    Fly - Johnson
    W's - Nunes
