UFC president Dana White‘s MMA Mount Rushmore has finally been revealed by him.

Speaking to The Schmo on The Schmozone Podcast, Dana White gave his version of MMA Mount Rushmore.

I mean if you talk about a Mount Rushmore, where their heads are carved in stone forever, you have to go, Royce Gracie, no brainer, you have to do that. Amanda Nunes, it has to be Amanda Nunes the greatest female fighter ever,” White said on The Schmozone Podcast.

The other two are tough. I would have to go with Jon Jones. The guys have never been beaten. What is more amazing about him going undefeated, which is incredibly amazing because very few people do in this sport, is the things he’s done to himself outside the Octagon and he still hasn’t been beat… The number four on Mount Rushmore, I guess you have to go with Chuck Liddell. At the point in time, he was the biggest star ever. It’s almost a coinflip between Chuck Liddell and Forrest Griffin.”

While Dana White has terrific choices for MMA Mount Rushmore, he missed out on the names of other legendary fighters like Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre.

If you look at what Anderson Silva did for Brazil and GSP did for Canada, these guys had an impact on an entire country is very massive and very strong,” White said when asked by Schmo as to why GSP and Silva weren’t included on the list. (h/t – BJPenn.com)

George St-Pierre will be inducted in the UFC Hall of Fame next month. He retired from the sport after winning the middleweight title with a win over Michael Bisping in 2017. On the other hand, Anderson Silva still hasn’t retired from the sport and he currently has two-fights left in his contract.

Amanda Nunes and Jon Jones have cemented their legacy as the greatest female and fighter of all time in the promotion and no one deserves to be more on the MMA Mount Rushmore list than these two.
