Dana White Reveals His Top Three UFC Fighters Of All-Time, Names Fighter Who's 'Getting Up There'

​Dana White has revealed his top three MMA fighters of all-time while naming the current UFC champion who's 'getting up there' following his domination in the Octagon. 

White was asked about the MMA GOAT debate ahead of the blockbuster UFC heavyweight championship clash between Francis Ngannou and Ciryl Gane

He omitted the likes of Khabib Nurmagomedov and Demetrious Johnson​ as he named Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre and Jon Jones as the three best fighters in MMA history.

The UFC boss also praised 170lbs king Kamaru Usman, saying he's 'getting up there' in the GOAT discussion. 

"You’d have to go, Anderson Silva, GSP, Jones. Usman is getting up there too," he said on The Dave Portnoy Show

Silva, St-Pierre and Jones being named by White as the three greatest fighters in MMA shouldn't come as a major surprise. 

They're among the greatest to compete in the UFC, with Silva boasting an incredible 10 UFC middleweight title defences.

'GSP' reigned over the UFC welterweight division and claimed a UFC title in a second division, beating Michael Bisping to win the UFC middleweight championship.

As for Jones, who's still on the UFC roster, he cleaned out the UFC light-heavyweight division, beating a slew of icons in a legendary run at 205lbs.

Usman, meanwhile, is currently the No.1 ranked pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC.

'The Nigerian Nightmare' has won 15 straight fights in the UFC, including five defences of his UFC welterweight crown. 

He's on his way to cementing his legacy having beaten the likes of Jorge Masvidal (x2), Colby Covington (x2) and Tyron Woodley.
