“George’s legacy is so long” Said Joe, He also continued that “in all fairness, I don’t think he fought the same caliber of competition as Usman has.”

This statement can bring some argument as many fans will argue that GSP fought high level competition than Kamaru Usman.

Let us have a look at the list of opponents GSP and Usman had in their career. Let us know in the comment who has faced a higher level of competition.

George St-Pierre – Michael Bisping, Johny Hendricks, Carlos Condit, Nick Diaz, BJ Penn, Matt Hughes, Dan Hardy, Matt Serra, Josh Koscheck, Thiago Alves.

Kamaru Usman – Colby Covington, Jorge Masvidal, Gilbert Burns, Tyron Woodley, Damien Maia, Rafael Dos Anjos.

No disrespect to Kamaru, But i personally believe GSP has faced real competition and look at the names, they all are veterans in MMA.

In terms of in terms of the greatest welterweight of all time. It’s tough to f*k with Kamaru Usman. He’s right up there at the top of the food chain Said by Joe Rogan.

However, they are just Joe Rogans views. What i think is there is a lobby of influencer including Ali Abdalaziz (Usman’s Manager) they wants GSP to fight Kamaru and that’s why they all teasing GSP.

However, GSP has made it clear that he was only interested in Khabib Nurmagomedov. For him, fighting to Usman does not add any value to his legacy.
