Georges St-Pierre elected his top-7 in MMA, left himself out and filled the list of Brazilians


The discussion is eternal: who is the greatest fighter of all time? And who got into the matter this time was Georges St-Pierre, precisely one of the most quoted for the post. The Canadian, however, wasted humility and admiration for Brazil. He didn’t put himself in the fray and even filled the top-7 with Brazilians.

“I think the best of all time is Royce Gracie. Because he did things in the beginning that no one had ever done before,” St-Pierre said in a chat with fans in Paris, where the UFC will host an event this Saturday.

Royce, of course, is the forerunner of the UFC. Chosen as the representative of the Gracie family to show the world the superiority of jiu-jitsu, he won three of the organization’s first four events – and the only reason he didn’t win the other one was due to a health problem that made him withdraw from the competition.

Next, the Canadian had to choose just three more names to complete his MMA Mount Rushmore (the mount in the United States where the faces of the four best presidents in the country’s history are carved). St-Pierre, however, “cheated” and picked six more fighters.

“I would put Amanda Nunes. Even though she hasn’t retired, she’s the best fighter there ever was. I would put Khabib because he had a perfect, undefeated and incredible career. I would put Conor McGregor as well because he took this sport to another level. And I would put Jon Jones, Anderson Silva and Demetrious Johnson on for their performance.”

In the end, the fan who asked the question even made St-Pierre a little embarrassed to say that the list wasn’t complete without him. The Canadian laughed and thanked him.
