Recently, in an interview with ace MMA reporter, James Lynch, The Baddy had named his GOAT list and surprisingly kept Khabib out of it. The former Cage Warriors featherweight champ received a lot of flak from Khabibs fans around the world.

Pimblett addressed the fans issues with him over not putting Khabib on the GOAT list. According to him, no one can stop him from giving out his opinions.

Dont care what anyone says, Pimblett told Kacper and Denis. He (Khabib) is not the GOAT level. You gotta have longevity in this sport to be the GOAT. He hasnt had longevity and had 3 title defenses. Jon Jones is at what, 12?

Khabib retired from MMA altogether after successfully defending his title against Justin Gaethje at UFC 254. He had defended his title 3 times. After winning it at UFC 223, his first title defense came against Conor at UFC 229. After beating The Notorious one, Khabib defeated Dustin Poirier at UFC 242.
