McGregor has never once defended a title.You can hate him all you like, but McGregor is an absolute star, and you can't knock his ability. He has an argument to be the GOAT featherweight, and his performance to win the lightweight title was close to flawless, he made Alvarez look like an amateur. I can't see how he dodged Khabib, he kept calling him out and it was Khabib who said no.
Maybe people aren't mentioning him because he has under 10 fights in the UFC. He has some notable wins, but I don't think he is as unbeatable as everyone thinks. Whittaker will give him a red hot crack if they run it back. I also find it strange he wants to go to LHW as soon as Jones leaves the division, especially with all the twitter battles they have had.
He got schooled by Diaz and Khabib and has been highly inactive and retired twice now.
he has some skills, but no where near enough to be talked about as a potential goat.
Adesanya on the other hand has defended his title twice now, and beaten the likes of Romero, Costa and Silva, not to mention Whittaker.
I cant stand Adesanya, but you cant deny the kids talent, and apparently no one can beat him.
Jose Aldo has a better claim to featherweight goat title, with the most successful title defenses in featherweight history and most consecutive title defenses at featherweight as well.
