Khabib and Nate Diaz Tear Down Conor McGregor’s GOAT Claims!

If there’s one thing we’re sure about Conor McGregor, he is full of confidence. Recently, he has jumped in a heated conversation on social media regarding MMA GOATS to make his case. As expected, other fighters and their fans were quick to rally against his audacious claim. On one side, with MMA being such a young sport, having a GOAT title sounds a bit silly, don’t you think so?

On the other hand, all MMA fighters all have a kind of asterisk after their name. It could come from doping violations (Jones, Silva), or not fighting in the UFC (Fedor). There could also be a lack of serious competition (Mighty Mouse). Besides, if we leave Georges St-Pierre out, then all that left is ‘Rush.’ Furthermore, will it make more sense to start with divisional GOATs then a pound-for-pound one first?

On the other hand, it will be a bit early to consider Khabib for this title. However, the Irishman doesn’t think so. He started a lengthy rant on why he deserves to be the second GOAT in the promotion. Meanwhile, the Notorious put Anderson Silva as first billing; and he could aim for number one by the end of his career. Suddenly, Conor also called out Jones and St. Pierre for their safety-first based approaches.

Fight back

The MMA world was quick to fight back this time. McGregor hasn’t managed to defend any of his titles. Besides, he’s still not the most active name on the roster, which means he has a long way to go before getting that lightweight GOAT title. Nate Diaz was also quick to reply:

“Smoked the #1 p4p and double champ know the real GOAT when you see him. And don’t forget I did it better and quicker than anyone else on the ground and sent him down with punches quicker than Mayweather did so f**k alll y’all rankings and know a real goat when you see me.” Finally, Khabib joined the roasting with a heated message: “Yu tapped out in featherweight, you tapped out in lightweight and; you tapped in welterweight, you never defended title in the UFC or Cage Warriors, you gave up more than GSP, Spider and Bones all together, you greatest @ufc fighter in twitter history.”
