Georges St-Pierre argued against the entire concept of GOAT talk in MMA when asked if he was the greatest of all time.
The former UFC welterweight and middleweight champion was a special guest on Ariel Helwani's MMA show on Tuesday.
And the Canadian star was asked if he was the greatest fighter in the sport. But the 38-year-old rejected that claim as he explained his theory in a detailed response.
"I don't think there is nobody that is the greatest," he told Helwani.
"Let me explain that to you. There is three guys, right? This guy will beat [that] guy, [that] guy will beat [the other] guy, and [the other] guy will beat this guy. That's how it is in this game... It's just a matter of timing. Everybody can beat everybody on any given day.
"You make a fight against a top guy 10 times, the guy will probably not win it 10 times," he added. "Depending on the situation, he might win nine out of the 10. And style makes fights, too. There are guys that have your number - you don't know why. In the fight game, it's not a straight line."
St-Pierre enjoyed an incredible professional career before retiring last year.
He reigned gloriously in the UFC welterweight division then claimed a title in a second weight class after beating Michael Bisping to win the UFC middleweight title.
'Rush' is considered one of the best ever along with Anderson Silva, Demetrius Johnson and Jon Jones.
Is 'GSP' the GOAT? Let us know what you think.
