Please reply with in your opinion, the top 5 MMA fighters of all time with 1 fighter you just couldn't ignore in a GOAT debate.

Mines:
1. Fedor
2. Anderson Silva
3. GSP
4. BJ Penn
5. Matt Hughes

If I ever get time I'd like to to take a real dive into every fighter mentioned on everybody's lists. Going to look at positional rankings of opponents, records of fighters they beat, World Championships held (UFC, PRIDE, WEC, Bellator, Strikeforce) title streaks, winning streaks, and anything else I statistically can get my hands on.

But for now I'm just wondering on your opinions

1. Fedor
2. Anderson Silva
3. Chuck Liddell
4. Wanderlei Silva
5. Matt Hughes

I wish I could include GSP but my list consists of guys that were really feared when their opponents found out they were fighting them and the dominance they showed in the era they fought in.

1: A.Silva
2: GSP
3: Fedor
4: Hughes
5: Chuck

I have Chuck over BJ because of the level of talent they were facing at the time and the way he dealt with them. Either guy could take that spot I think though.

Jose Aldo has the record but not the names and Jones has the name but not the numbers...so IMO they both are extremely close but not a top five GOAT.

This is it guys.

Anderson
Fedor
Gsp
Jones
Hendo

that is the perfect top 5 list.

Anderson trumps fedor just because of his current reign, incredible winning streak and the way in which he wins cannot be ignored.

Those of you who put fedor as one can you just explain to me why he should be above silva ?
