Conor McGregor Ranks Himself No.2 In MMA GOAT List In Brutally Honest Assessment

Conor McGregor Ranks Himself No.2 In MMA GOAT List In Brutally Honest Assessment

Conor McGregor ranked himself as No.2 behind UFC legend Anderson Silva in his MMA GOAT list in a brutally honest Twitter thread.

McGregor, who turned 32 on Tuesday, claimed former UFC middleweight champion Silva is the MMA GOAT.

He ranked Georges St-Pierre and Jon Jones third and fourth, respectively.

However, 'The Notorious' believes he'll solidly his status as the MMA GOAT once his career eventually comes to an end.

Back in May, McGregor tweeted: "GOAT THREAD. The array of finishes, across 2 divisions, with champion status in 1, Anderson Silva is No.1 MMA GOAT. My array of finishes, across 3 divisions, with champion status in 2, I'm No.2. If not tied 1. However still active, No.1 is fully secured by career end. And easily.

"GSP is in at 3. Much less array of finishes but champion status in 2. He is far behind though. Reasons = Left 170 after much damage taken+questionable decision. Never re-engaged 170lb successors. Bottled Anderson fight. Only moved when one eyed fighter presented. Played safe."

In another tweet, he wrote: "Jon is 4. Maybe tied 3. More array of finishes than 3 and still active, but champion status in just 1. Reasons = Multiple lacklustre decision performances + questionable decision win. Attempting to safe play HW entry/avoiding its champion.

"I didn't mentions PED results on multiple entrants, even though that makes me the clear current No.1 MMA GOAT, along with still being active. Although it shames, as well as puts all runs+finishes in complete doubt, I've snored multiple juice heads. A true GOAT must do it all."

McGregor continued by clarifying Silva as the MMA GOAT: "Clarity on Silva's earlier no.1 spot. Most stylistic finishes on resume. Front kicks to face. Up elbow (albeit outside UFC) Thai plum knees leading to broken facial bones. Long list of jaw dropping finishes. Myself/Anderson have the most exciting/important finishes in the sport!"

McGregor, of course, walked away from the UFC last month - his third retirement in four years.

The Irishman grew frustrated with the promotion and suddenly called time on his career, just six months after his triumphant UFC comeback.

But he keeps on dropping subtle hints about a sensational return as he eyes the No.1 spot in the MMA GOAT list.
