Conor McGregor reveals his GOATs of MMA list… and surprisingly he’s not top of the pile

Conor McGregor has taken to social media to list his ‘GOATs’ of MMA, and somewhat surprisingly the notorious Irishman left himself off top spot.

Never shy of offering an opinion, former UFC ‘champ champ’ McGregor sparked debate on Twitter as he presented his all-time MMA rankings.

McGregor picked Brazilian middleweight legend Anderson Silva – the man with the longest reign as UFC champion – as number one, based on the criteria of Anderson’s array of finishes across two divisions (middleweight and light-heavyweight).

With uncharacteristic modesty, ‘The Notorious’ put himself at number two (but “possibly tied at one”) qualifying that by saying he would be all-time top dog “easily” by the end of his octagon career.
