@imperatorfishrat

Jesus Christ you are such a debbie downer, you know that?  You could make a blowjob from a hot blonde with big tits and a nice ass seem like a death sentence.

 As far as GSP at MW goes, I think we can all agree that this is a temporary solution.  But, GSP winning opens up the chance for Dana to finally get the belt off of boring ass Woodley and bumping Whittaker up to MW champ as GSP has name value again.  And while GSP looked off tonight, I think come time for his second fight (which will have to be at WW next time), he will be back to 100% as he will have shed all that extra muscle off.  Because outside of his early gassing out, GSP looked decent.  He was actually exciting to watch. A hell of a lot more exciting than his last fight 4 years ago.

I don't think GSP will ever fight Woodley, and I don't think he'll ever fight whittaker. If that was set in stone, I'd have no problem with it, but I strongly, emphatically feel that they're going to do a Mcgregor GSP superfight.And that I can't abide.

That's going to happen. Way, way too much money for it not to and the hype train is yet to even leave the station.


GSP isn't ever going to return to 100% form. Not unless he gets on the special sauce. Fighters don't improve with age. He is lucky--very lucky, that he was gifted--I repeat GIFTED this title shot without having done an utter goddamn thing to earn in, and it happened to be a guy who he his style matched up well with and who is also sponsored by metamucil. It was the stupidest ******* booking in the history of the UFC, and there is nothing anyone can say to palliate  this fact. Absolute sheer bat**** crazy cashgrab insanity.

GSP has 2 options, Whitaker or Woodley.

Watching the post fight stuff.... Woodley looks closer in size to Dillashaw than to Weidman.

@AnAlias Right? Woodleys size is sticking out more & more each fight..and not in a good way. Although he keeps winning.

@ImperatorFishrat  I agree with you man. This was 100% a cash grab. GSP did not deserve this title fight at all and I don't see him fighting neither Whittaker or Woodley.

@Kinsala

Well Whittaker isn't fighting anyone as of right now because his knee is still messed up bad.  So that leaves either Rockhold, Weidman, Conor or...



Anderson Silva perhaps (if he wins against Gastelum in Shanghai).  I mean, it would only make sense now since Silva and GSP are in the same weight class finally and GSP holds the belt.  Now apparently GSP balked at the idea yet again, but I mean come on. How does Dana not make this fight after years of speculation?  Plus, Anderson doesn't have a whole lot of years left (unless he thinks he's Tom Brady and wants to go until he is 50), so this is the best time to make it since we live in the era of the UFC where nothing matters at all.  Especially when all the UFC has is Conor and no one else since WME-IMG has done a piss poor job at marketing new stars that actually have talent.  A blind chimpanzee could even see that this is a no brainer of a fight to make.  So why not?

Dana just said about GSP with a little "yea it's in his ******* contract" kind of attitude, "His next fight is at 185 pounds."

Not exactly Mr current affars, are you?

Whittaker literally just said he's healed up and ready to unify in Australia or anywhere else.

https://fansided.com/2017/11/04/robert-whittaker-australia-bisping-st-pierre/

GSP has no intention of fighting anyone who is a legitimate threat, which is why he asked for Bisping and not Woodley to begin with.

I hope you're right though, It will be glorious to watch Bobby Knuckles starch him within one round.

Yeah I'm not, because I got other thing doing in my life and I don't have time to read articles from Sports Illustrated's last attempt to stay relevant in the 21st century in Fansided.com

I think that Whitaker would beat GSP but I doubt it would be a quick starching.
