Conor McGregor ranks MMA’s top four greatest fighters and includes himself in analysis


Conor McGregor listed off his top four greatest MMA fighters of all time, including Anderson Silva, Georges St-Pierre and Jon Jones but the Notorious put himself second in the list


Conor McGregor has ranked MMAs top-four greatest fighters of all time and the Notorious made room for himself.


The Irishman made his comeback to the spot in January, beating Donald Cerrone in 40 seconds, to make it 22 wins from 26 fights.


He is regarded by fans of MMA as one of the best fighters to grace the sport.


And the Notorious took time to share his all-time top-four on Twitter.


The array of finishes, across two divisions, with champion status in one; Anderson Silva is No.1 MMA GOAT, McGregor said.


The Brazilian defended the UFC Middleweight Championship 10 times over six years.

And the Dubliner decided to put himself next in the GOAT list.


McGregor added: My array of finishes, across three divisions, with champion status in two; Im No.2, if not tied [for No.] 1.


However, still active, No.1 is fully secured by career end. And easily.

I didnt mention PED results on multiple entrants, even though that makes me the clear current No.1 MMA GOAT, along with still being active.

Although it shames, as well as puts all runs and finishes in complete doubt, Ive snored multiple juice heads. A true GOAT must do it all.


Georges St-Pierre unified the UFC Welterweight Championship as well as defending in nine times, earning a place on McGregors list.


But the Irishman suggested there was a lot of distance between himself and the Canadian.




Georges St-Pierre also makes the list but is 'far behind'

GSP is in at [No.] 3. Much less array of finishes, but champion status in two [divisions], the Notorious continued.


He is far behind though. Reasons: Left 170 after much damage taken [and a] questionable decision, never re-engaged 170lb successors, bottle Anderson fight, only moved when one-eyes fighter presented, played safe.


McGregor finished his top-four with Jones, the current holder of the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship.

Jon [Jones] is [No.] 4. Maybe tied [for No.] 3. More array of finishes than [St-Pierre] and still active, but champion status in just one [division].


Reasons: Multiple lacklustre decision performances [and a] questionable decision win, attempting to safe-play heavyweight entry/ avoiding its champion.


McGregor switched codes to boxing in 2017 against Floyd Mayweather and the UFC star has been sent a warning from Mike Tyson about a rematch.
