One Dana White take on Kamaru Usman that you “cannot f**king deny”

President of the UFC, Dana White, expressed his belief that Kamaru Usman is the ‘greatest Welterweight’ in UFC history on the Pound 4 Pound Podcast, which is hosted by Kamaru Usman himself along with Henry Cejudo.

With a Welterweight Championship reign lasting 1,267 days (before eventually losing it to Leon Edwards at 278), Usman’s tenure ranks as the 9th longest title reign in UFC history.

Dana White crowns Kamaru Usman Welterweight GOAT

Dana White expressed his reasons for believing that Usman is the Welterweight GOAT, stating, “When you talk about Kamaru Usman going through the Welterweight Division twice, you may not like Kamaru… but you cannot deny that he is the greatest Welterweight of all time.”

Despite the MMA community and fans having immense respect for Usman’s career and achievements, they were also distraught over the fact that Dana White casually ignored a lot of the statistics that would be considered a huge factor when there is a conversation about ‘The Greatest of All Time.’ For fans, Dana White ignored the Welterweight anomaly, Georges St-Pierre’s career and spoke casually.

Georges St-Pierre has been a constant presence in the discussion of the greatest of all time, alongside names like Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, and Khabib Nurmagomedov. Over the span of five years, from 2008 to 2013, GSP defended his title against nine different opponents. Additionally, in 2017, GSP jumped to the Middleweight division and won the title against Michael Bisping, thereby securing a Double-Champ status.

Kamaru Usman is on 3 match losing streak

Kamaru Usman, currently ranked #1 in the welterweight division, is currently on a 3 fight losing streak. His last matchup, with Khamzat Chimaev, was held in UFC 294, in which Kamaru lost the fight to a decision.

Previously, Kamaru fought Leon Edwards for a title defense, where Leon Edwards shocked the world with a sensational R5 head-kick knockout. Kamaru also challenged Leon Edwards for a title defense but lost the bout in decision in UFC 278.

There have been various points of contention between Georges St-Pierre and Dana White. One major reason was GSP’s contract and the terms of his return to the UFC. GSP has expressed frustration with the UFC’s handling of his career, including disputes over sponsorship deals and drug testing protocols.
