5 Current UFC Fighters who could be GOAT
The ‘Greatest of all Time’ debate is something that gets thrown around quite often in the MMA world. Currently, we have a long list of names like Conor McGregor, Anderson Silva, Georges St. Pierre, Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones among others that we link with such discussions.
Irrespective of the names involved, the discussions about ‘The Greatest of All Time’ are going to continue as long as the sport exists.
A few years back, we had a different set of names for the GOAT discussions. Similarly, few years later, we will probably have an entirely different set as well. This second category will be the topic for our slider today.
We will be looking at some of the upcoming UFC fighters that can make it big in the coming years and probably end up involved in the GOAT discussions. So without further ado, here are five current UFC fighters who could be the GOAT.
#5 Brian Ortega
Brian Ortega might’ve suffered a huge loss at the hands of Max Holloway but it takes nothing away from the talent that he has.
Ortega has a professional record of 14-1 to his name as of now with his only loss coming against Holloway as mentioned earlier. One of the most talented grapplers in the UFC roster right now, Ortega has also showcased his brilliance as a striker. The same was there to be seen when he knocked out Frankie Edgar at UFC 222 with a vicious punch.
He also holds victories over Cub Swanson, Clay Guida and Diego Brandao among others. At 27 years, Ortega has plenty of years ahead of him and with the experience he has gained so far inside the Octagon, Ortega is bound to get better in the coming years.
