St-Pierre captured the welterweight belt twice in his illustrious career. He piled up a whooping streak of nine title defenses including wins over the likes of BJ Penn, Carlos Condit, Nick Diaz and Carlos Conditions before temporarily retiring in November 2013.

St-Pierre returned back after four years to take on Michael Bisping, who was the champion of UFC’s middleweight division, a class higher than that of St-Pierre’s. Despite all the odds, St-Pierre submitted Bisping in the third round to become only the fourth (out of five) fighters to hold belts in two different weight classes.

However a humble St-Pierre does not consider himself as the greatest of all time.

“I don’t really consider myself the greatest in my era. It’s a subject I can debate for a long time,” said St-Pierre during a recent press conference in Australia.

“There is no baddest man on the planet. Nobody is invincible, and even though you are the champion, it doesn’t mean that there is not another man on the planet that couldn’t beat you at that particular day, at that particular time, at that particular moment,” he said. “I became world champion at a certain moment, particular time and location.
