“He’d be neck and neck for greatest exit with [Georges] St-Pierre,” White said to Yahoo! Sports Kevin Iole (via Steven Marrocco of MMA Fighting). “I mean, GSP left with the title, then came back, won the 185-pound title, and then left again.”
White also says that the trilogy between Cormier and Miocic may be the greatest trilogy in UFC history.
“The beautiful thing about this one is, it’s probably the best trilogy we’ve ever had in the UFC, and it’s for the heavyweight championship, and to determine who’s the GOAT,” White said.
UFC 252 takes place on Saturday, August 15 from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada with Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on ESPN+ pay-per-view.
