lol who told you khabib is like ali?
He seems to be the greatest in the sport history, correct? And undefeated in a harder sport with much more ways to go down.
yea you could definately make an argument for khabib in the GOAT debate, but hes not undisputed in my opinion, there are a lot of guys considered in that debate.
he is indeed undefeated, but you also have to take the competetion into account. only 13 of his 30 win were in the ufc, and i would consider 6 of these wins are vs top competition. look at the people Jon Jones and GSP faught, thats a whole different level.
dont get me wrong going undefeated in mma is nuts and i dont wanna come across as a hater, but its not as clear as ali. especially when you consider the impact that ali also had on society in general. Ali is a true icon.
Also Khabib is 32 years old, he is retired in his prime, you have to think why that is. i personally would not consider him the goat but im definately not against listening to arguments for him in that debate. hes 100% on the list just because of his record and domination, he lost maybe 1 or 2 rounds in his whole career thats hella impressive
