"I mean if you talk about a Mount Rushmore, where their heads are carved in stone forever, you have to go, Royce Gracie, no brainer, you have to do that," he said on The Schmozone Podcast.

"Amanda Nunes, it has to be Amanda Nunes the greatest female fighter ever.

"The other two are tough. I would have to go with Jon Jones," he added. "The guys have never been beaten. What is more amazing about him going undefeated, which is incredibly amazing because very few people do in this sport, is the things he's done to himself outside the Octagon and he still hasn't been beat.

"The number four on Mount Rushmore, I guess you have to go with Chuck Liddell. At the point in time, he was the biggest star ever. It's almost a coin flip between Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin."
