seriously it gets annoying hearing this when MMA is like what 12/13 years old(talking about from when proper rules where implemented into the UFC and beginning of PRIDE) so how can we say that gsp or fedor is the GREATEST OF ALL TIME when it's just over a decade old, come on seriously just look at the amount of talent surging right now, it's WAY WAY TOO EARLY FOR THIS TALK

Dude nº 1 - Those guys back in 1990 were pretty dumb ass holes, how could they claim Michael Jordan to be the greatest off all time, when the sport only had like 100 years?

Dude nº 2 - In deed, dont they know that all time means at least 10000 years?


WTF

Its all opinion based so it doesn't matter too much to me. Everyone has their own criteria for labeling someone the "Greatest" therefore it doesn't really matter. Just like when people call Ali the greatest, I don't think he is, but I don't get bent out of shape about it. I think its been around long enough to call someone the greatest though.

to me when people say "all time" it means "up till now".

And this is in the wrong section.

Greatest of all time just means the best up to this point. There is no minimum number of years you have to wait in order to use the term. However, I will agree that calling someone the best mma fighter ever isn't really saying much and i also agree that future mma fighters will be better on average than today's fighters, just like how today's basketball players are better than the ones who played 15 years after the NBA started.

Greatness is measured of what an athlete had done throughout his career in that certain sport.. and yes FEDOR is the G.O.A.T .. u can go cry in your pillow at night about logic or whatever you want but the guy has done amazing things and beat everyone he went up against.. am i saying there wont be another GOAT later in the future, no but there will never be another Fedor..

look at the dudes that Fedor fought, he dont fight cans, he fights champs and is a master at this art of fighting. Dont argue bout Fedor being to soon of a G.O.A.T, I HIGHLY doubt ANYONE will have as good fights as Fedor had, hes just too good
