Is Khabib Nurmagomedov The Greatest Fighter In MMA History?

Is Khabib Nurmagomedov The Greatest Fighter In MMA History?

Khabib Nurmagomedov's performance at UFC 242 was spectacular, as always. The UFC lightweight champion improved his record to 28-0, 12-0 in the UFC as he closes in on GOAT status in MMA.

Nurmagomedov strengthened his claim for a place in GOAT discussion by stopping Dustin Poirier at UFC 242 in stunning style to defend his 155lbs belt.

He now has wins over seven fighters who were ranked at the time he beat them, including four fighters who are currently in the top 10 (Poirier, Conor McGregor, Al Iaquinta and Edson Barboza).

He's the most dominate champion in the UFC and holds the longest undefeated streak in MMA history.

You get the point. He's good. Very good. He's easily the greatest lightweight in MMA history (sorry BJ Penn), and he's on course for GOAT status.

When it comes to MMA GOAT talk, we must talk about Georges St-Pierre, Anderson Silva, Jon Jones and Fedor Emelianenko.

However, if Nurmagomedov keeps winning you not only have to include him with those names but also have to consider him the best to ever do it.

Georges St-Pierre Names The "Perfect Fighter" In the UFC And It's Not Khabib Nurmagomedov

Nurmagomedov turns 31 on Friday and his father has hinted at an early retirement, claiming his son will be happy to walk away from the sport at 30-0.

Well, if that's the case, he's only got two fights left but if he faces Tony Ferguson and beats him, it'll only enhance his legacy and if he takes out another top contender before retiring then it'll be hard to deny him of being the GOAT.

The discussion of who should be called the GOAT is a divisive and subjective topic among MMA fans but, one thing's for sure, Nurmagomedov has a valid argument on the MMA GOAT title and he's solidifying that claim with every UFC appearance.
