UFC legend Georges St-Pierre leaves out Khabib when naming six men he believes can be considered the greatest of all-time, with Jon Jones among them

Conor McGregor certainly voiced his opinion last year when he named Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre and Jon Jones as well as himself as all-time greats.
Speaking of St-Pierre, in an interview with UFC.com, Rush broke down exactly who he would classify as the greatest ever and in what departments.
“What does being the best of all time mean?” St-Pierre asked. “If it’s to compare every athlete who competed at their time and who was the most dominant at their time, who had the most achievements, for me it’s Royce Gracie.
“If you talk about who’s the strongest guy, if you would put everybody in the cage, who would come out alive, I think it would maybe be Fedor Emelianenko in his prime.

“If you talk about the more flamboyant guy, the one who did some crazy stuff that you only see in movies and stuff like that, I would say maybe a guy like Anderson Silva or Vitor Belfort.
“If you say the more well-rounded guy, I would say maybe Demetrious Johnson. If you ask about who’s the guy who faced the most adversity, maybe Jon Jones.
“But whoever you name, it’s a subjective thing, it’s an opinion,” St-Pierre concluded.
GSP is right. You can discuss leaving McGregor and Khabib Nurmagomedov off and maybe even important stars of their era like Ronda Rousey and Chuck Liddell, but it’s hard to debate the names GSP has mentioned.
Georges St-Pierre could be tempted to return by facing Khabib Nurmagomedov
St-Pierre is a legend in his own right and many consider him the greatest welterweight champion in MMA history.
Now 40, will he ever fight again? Both he and Khabib have stated they want to fight each other but thus far, UFC have resisted making that match.
Could president Dana White have a change of heart in order to get Khabib out of retirement?
