Completely agree. Khabib is unique for his utter domination of each fight he was in... BUT... the level of elite competition he faced (over a prolonged period of time) leaves him way behind Jones and GSP in my opinion.Is he really though?
He is defiantly up the top, but I don't know if he is number 1
For instance being undefeated in 29 fights is great, but probably 7 of them were against top opponents. Does that feat reign better than any/all of the following though?
Mighty Mouse - 11 UFC belt defenses
GSP - 12 times UFC champ in 2 divisions
Jon Jones - 26-1 (really that is undefeated though) 14 x UFC champ and his opponents is a murders row for years
Anderson Silva - won the UFC title like 13-14 times
Khabib has beaten
Elite - Gaethje, Poirier, Conor, Dos Anjos
Good - Barboza, Michael Johnson
No current season stats available
Jones has beaten
Elite - Cormier (x2), Santos, Gustaffson, Belfort, Teixeira, Machida, Rashad Evans, Rampage, Shogun, Sonnen
Good - Smith, Reyes, OSP, Badar, Bonnar
