UFC Chief’s Shocking Pick: Usman Tops GSP as All-Time Greatest Welterweight

"You can't deny it" - Dana's firm choice

UFC Boss Disagrees: “GSP” Not the Top Welterweight Ever

In a surprising turn of events, UFC President Dana White voiced his opinion, firmly placing Kamaru Usman above Georges St-Pierre in the welterweight GOAT debate. Despite widespread recognition of St-Pierre’s legacy, White’s choice highlights Usman’s remarkable journey through the division.

Usman’s Reign Over Welterweight Division

White elaborated on his choice during a podcast with Kamaru Usman and Henry Cejudo. He emphasized the relentless challenges UFC fighters face, particularly Usman, whose title defenses against top contenders like Covington and Masvidal distinguish his career.

The High Stakes of UFC Matchmaking

Comparing UFC’s matchmaking to boxing, White criticized the latter for avoiding tough matches to preserve records. In contrast, UFC champions, according to White, earn their titles by facing the most formidable opponents, underscoring Usman’s achievements.

Usman’s Path to Glory

Capturing the welterweight title from Tyron Woodley in March 2019, Usman successfully defended his belt against top fighters. Despite a recent loss to Leon Edwards and a challenging debut in the middleweight class, Usman’s legacy as a dominant welterweight remains impactful.
