MMA’s 50 Greatest Fighters Of All Time Have Been Named And Ranked
UFC icon Georges St-Pierre has been crowned the best MMA fighter of all time ahead of fellow legend Jon Jones.
The 38-year-old Canadian star, who won championships in two different weight classes, called it time on his illustrious fighting career last February.
And 'GSP,' who lost only twice in his professional fighting career, was named top of Tapology's rankings by MMA fans.
Tapology says its rankings "compiles our member lists, then updates in real time for up-to-the-minute information."
Jones, who is often revered as one of the best MMA fighters of all time, fell short in the rankings and finished behind 'GSP' in second place.
Some of the notable names that finished outside of the top 50 included UFC welterweight champ Kamaru Usman (78th), Nate Diaz (66th) and Brock Lesnar (86th).
