Georges St Pierre has 17 top ten wins, the average rank of his challenger was 3 and his undefeated streak lasted 2276 days over the course of  12 fights.

Jon Jones has 8 top ten wins, the average rank of his challenger was 3.5 and his undefeated streak lasted 1395 days over the course of 10 fights.*

Statics do not prove anything as a legacy cannot be proved with numbers. However, these would suggest that in fact Georges St Pierre is the GOAT.
