Israel Adesanya has cemented his position as one of the greatest mixed martial artist of all time and rightfully so.

However, there are still some blemishes that will haunt Israel Adesanya's dominant UFC run and his GOAT status. Let's take a look.

Israel Adesanya's multiple losses including a KO loss against Alex Pereira doesn't paint a good picture of the Stylebender in the memory of fight fans and continues to be a talking point.

Israel Adesanya has always been criticized for having "zero" ground game and doesn't have a single takedown to his name.

Israel Adesanya's loss to Jan Blachowicz after his decision to move up a weight class won't go unnoticed if we talk about Adesanya's position in the GOAT debate.

Israel Adesanya has never been tested positive for steroids, however, a "gyno" on his right pec during his fight with Paulo Costa raises eyebrows.

On the top, Adesanya's lackluster fights against the likes of Jared Cannonier, Marvin Vettori, and Yoel Romero don't sit well in the eyes of the UFC fans.

While it's safe to say Adesanya will go down as an all-time great, however, it's too soon to say that he will go down as the undisputed GOAT!
