Demetrious Johnson says thanks to Anderson Silva for GOAT status.

Demetrious Johnson says thanks to Anderson Silva for GOAT status.

Anderson Silva was asked this week who the GOAT was and he said, Demetrious Johnson.

It’s one of those endless MMA discussions. Who is the GOAT? The Greatest of all Time. Some people will say, Anderson Silva, Fedor Emelianenko, Demetrious Johnson, Jon Jones, or even Conor McGregor. There is no way for certain to know who it is. It’s just whoever you believe is the best fighter to ever have fought. When you get the seal of approval however from one of those men, it has to count towards something. 

Anderson Silva was asked who he felt the GOAT was and he said, Demetrius Johnson. I tend to agree with that pick. Demetrious is just on a level all his own. The fine folks at TMZ reached out to Demetrious who was home recovering from shoulder surgery. They got his opinion on who’s the best, as well as Demetrious thanking Anderson Silva for the nomination.
