The Greatest of All Time debate is something which has been a heated topic among the fight fans. Some of the most prominent names out there are Jones, Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva. These three fighters are nothing less than the pinnacle of MMA talent mixed with extreme determination and hardwork.

GSP has an undefeated record with multiple title defences and is well respected all around the globe. Similarly, Silva was a freak of nature and in his prime toyed around his opponents like they were nothing. On the other hand, Jones is just a machine with unparallel fighting IQ.

According to White, Usman has already surpassed Jones and St-Pierre in consecutive fight wins. If Usman manages to beat Edwards at UFC 278, he will equate with Silva’s record of 16 victories in a row. White suggested that with all these achievements, Usman is surely in the debate of the all time GOAT.

“I still consider Jones, it’s time to start talking about Usman, you know. He’s one fight away from tying Anderson Silva. He already beat Jon Jones and GSP and now in his next fight if he beats leon Edwards, he ties Anderson Silva. So, yeah he’s in the discussion,” said White.

Usman has surely proved that he is an amazing fighter and a fearless champion. The fighter possesses everything that a GOAT should have. The fighter has a great story coming from nowhere then rising to the top with nothing but hard work.

Usman also has a huge following specially from his country Nigeria. It won’t be surprising if Usman breaks every other major record in upcoming years. It is going to be a tough challenge while discussing the GOAT in the future.
