Georges St-Pierre can point to victories over B.J. Penn, Matt Hughes, Carlos Condit, and, in his final MMA bout, Michael Bisping, whom he defeated to become UFC middleweight champion in November 2017.
He is largely considered one of the best fighters of all time, yet two superfights with Anderson Silva (34-11 MMA, 17-7 UFC) and Khabib Nurmagomedov (recently retired UFC lightweight champion) eluded the UFC Hall of Famer (29-0 MMA, 13-0 UFC).
“I always wanted to be known as the best and be the best, and there are two fights that never materialized that could have been made – but for certain reasons did not materialize,” St-Pierre said.
“The first one was against Anderson Silva, and the other one was against Khabib, but for certain reasons it did not happen.”
