Georges St. Pierre and not Anderson Silva, is the greatest fighter ever to step inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship of the UFC Octagon, according to former two division contender Chael Sonnen.

The American Gangster is known for his over the top trash talking and he has made quite a name for himself doing that and it seems that he has carried that habit well into retirement and his new career as an analyst.

Anderson Silva hasn’t fought for more than a year due to a severe leg injury and he was defeated in his last two fights by Technical Knockout.

Anderson Silva remained the champion in the middleweight category from 2006 until 2013. In UFC 162, Chris Weidman knocked out Anderson Silva.
