10 Sure Fire UFC Hall Of Famers

3. Georges St. Pierre

Following in the footsteps of Pat Miletich and UFC Hall-of-Fame inductee Matt Hughes, Georges St. Pierre is the latest in a series of dominant champions in the welterweight division. Like Hughes before him, St. Pierre has raised the bar for all welterweights to a level that seems insurmountable to the point where St. Pierre may be the most skilled fighter in MMA history.

Though he is just 29 years old, St. Pierre has already won the UFC welterweight title twice and the interim welterweight title once. As the reigning champion, St. Pierre has tied Miletich, Frank Shamrock, and Chuck Liddell with four successful title defenses during a single title reign, behind only Hughes and Tito Ortiz (5 each), and Anderson Silva (6).

Though St. Pierre’s success inside the Octagon makes him worthy of induction into the UFC’s Hall-of-Fame, St. Pierre is more than just a dominant champion. St. Pierre is UFC’s second biggest star, behind only Brock Lesnar. St. Pierre’s stardom has led an vast expansion of the UFC’s fan base throughout St. Pierre’s native country of Canada. Only a handful of fighters have done as much to expand the UFC fan base as St. Pierre.
