All of us sports fans love ourselves an all-time list.
However, most lists are, quite frankly, biased and promote an agenda of sorts.
But anyway, let’s now talk about an interesting list made by Twitter user @JamesMMA10.
By his own admission, the list features the “GOAT of every weight class” and “is the objective correct list and any counter argument is pointless.”
Here’s how the gentleman decided to rank his “GOATs”:
125lb (Flyweight): Demetrious Johnson
135lb (Bantamweight): Henry Cejudo
145lb (Featherweight): Conor McGregor
155lb (Lightweight): Khabib Nurmagomedov
170lb (Welterweight): Kamaru Usman
185lb (Middleweight): Anderson Silva
205lb (Light Heavyweight): Jon Jones
Heavyweight: Francis Ngannou
As you can expect, Twitter wasn’t too kind to James and he has had to face a myriad of trolls who have torn into him for his opinion.
There were some interesting replies. While one fan called it a plain joke, saying: “I was about to come at you for the Cejudo then I saw the 145 and realised it was a joke,” another assumed that he must be new to MMA. He wrote: “Clearly you’re new to the sport and just started watching during this era… sheeshh.”
There was another fan who delivered a comprehensive verdict on the rankings, too. He wrote:
“125lb: Yes. 135lb: no. 145lb: no. 155lb: unquestionably. 170lb: at some point it could be Usman but for now it's still GSP. 185lb: yes but Izzy will give that a good run. 205lb: unquestionably, HWlb: definitely way too soon.”

It's always a risk putting your opinion online, especially when it comes to ranking and rating athletes.
