Since Anderson Silva’s recently announced failed drug test for anabolic steroids, there has been much talk regarding his status as the GOAT (Greatest Of All Time).
Many have began calling UFC light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones, or Georges St. Pierre the GOAT, whereas others give the title to Fedor Emelianenko.
Tristar gym head coach, Firas Zahabi believes the title of greatest of all time goes to his prized pupil, Georges St. Pierre, he made his case to La Presse:
“Georges is the best pound-for-pound fighter. We have to drop Silva. If he really cheated, we can’t set this example for the youth. It’s ridiculous. Is Lance Armstrong considered the best cyclist of all time? No. A few years ago, the answer would have been different.”
“Georges passed the tests of VADA, the best agency. All his tests are public. We are ready to take them again with random controls 24 hours a day. My athletes are natural, and yes, Georges is the best fighter of all time.”
