    stopped reading right here because this is so blatantly false that it doesn't matter what you say after this.

    Ask Koscheck how that eye feels after taking "no damage" from GSP. Or do you consider a broken orbital and permanent eye injury to be "no damage"?

    -he breaks guys down physically (Jon Fitch took a beating, Koscheck orbital broke) and career-wise (guys tend to never "be the same" after losing to St Pierre)

    -real fights? who is going to clobber GEORGES ST PIERRE in a 6, 7, 8 round fight?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?????!??!?!?!?!? GSP goes 25 minutes comfortably in all his fight even against other cardio-freaks like Diaz and Condit. Especially in a "real fight", you're thinking someone on the streets will drag St Pierre "into the 6, 7, 8" rounds and beat him after 35-40 minutes battle? he's a professional prize fighter, he doesn't need to deal with "real fights" for $0.00 for a shot in World Star Hip Hop video collection

    What's gonna happen when GSP finally gasses, and he has a weak chin and no KO power? And the other guy, also gassed, still has KO power and a chin? GSP is getting knocked the fuck out, that's what's gonna happen.

    The 7th, 8th rounds would look like Conor vs Diaz 1 round 2 every time.

    GSP games the rules to win in 5 rounds on technicality (decisoin). That strategy would not work in real fights. GSP is the best UFC athlete. GSP is not the best fighter.

    He didn't finish opponents and he always fought guys generally his same size. Fedor was a small HW and could have been a LHW. Silva was a WW who moved up to MW and dominated. He even took fights at LHW. GSP is easily the best WW though.

    GSP left 20 months before USADA was put into place and 14 months before Anderson popped for steroids, which was the final straw that led to advanced testing... GSP must be psychic.

    Anderson - juice
    JBJ - juice
    Fedor - can crushing for 50% of his fights, fought in a pro wrestling org that encouraged juice and fixed matches. Promptly lost his streak in the US. Even his most ardent huggers can admit he was probably using during PRIDE but it was a fair playing field so it didn't matter to them.

    If you don't care about strength of schedule, drugs or losses to total cans, then JBJ is your objective GOAT because his accomplishments outshine even Georges. He is effectively undefeated and his title defenses are extremely impressive. If however you prefer a non juiced GOAT candidate, then your choices narrow to GSP, Aldo or possibly MM.
