Who Is Canada’s No. 1 Athlete: Georges St-Pierre or Wayne Gretzky?

UFC president Dana White has declared Georges St-Pierre the most famous athlete to come out of Canada. Once he made the statement, the flood gates opened for hockey diehards to rail on him, “What about Wayne Gretzky?!”

For his part, St-Pierre tends to agree, calling Gretzky his idol. He aspires to be the Wayne Gretzky of mixed martial arts, but is he there just yet?
