Is it better or worse that it's the same one he blew out before as compared to if it was the other knee? Sucks for him and for Hendricks and other WWs who wanted a shot at him.

Definitely worse that the same one blew out. I doubt he ever returns now.

****. 

The optimist in me wants to look on the bright side and say, well, this may keep him from hanging around too long. 

But **** the optimist in me. As a long-time GSP nuthugger and uber-fan, this sucks.

It was his right knee the first time. Still though this makes a comeback (at least a successful one) a long shot. Good thing is he has time and won't feel pressured to come back too soon to defend the title. Another thing is he's gone through the rehab before. He knows and understands what it will take. Lastly nobody in MMA has the work ethic of GSP so if anyone can come back and return to form it's him.

I don't think he'll come back, he won't return unless he can get 100% by his standards and  compete at elite level which I doubt he can do successfully after a long absence and 2 ACL surgeries add to that his emotional issues and it's a looong shot besides I doubt he still has it in him.

I'm not a believer in fate or anything. But sometimes life has a way of telling you it's time to take it easy. This sounds like one of those times.

He had a good run. He has nothing left to prove. Just hang it up and enjoy your life, Georges.

He needs to lose to Hendricks after years of boring fights and a gift split decision.

I'm really not as disappointed as some. 

I mean the guy left the sport three months ago with talk of a two year hiatus. 

Even with surgery and rehabilitation he can still make that timeline.

Interesting, I didn't know you could delay a TBD date. I mean it was already ******* undetermined.

I think the more important question isn't IF or WHEN he comes back, but SHOULD he even come back at all?  He fought the toughest guys, one after another for 12 years, and the only real break he had was when he ****** up his knee for the first time, that has to take a toll on you mentally and physically.  When a fighter who competes at a level GSP competes at gets the slightest doubt, its time to hang up your gloves.  If you cant go just as balls to the wall as the other guy your just gunna get hurt.  When GSP said he was retiring after the Hendricks fight, Dana should have just left it, a fighter knows when he's done, not a promoter. For Dana white to go on about how " ill talk to Georges" and saying he's not retiring before he even talked to Georges is not only disrespectful to Georges, who has done so much for the sport, but disrespectful to the sport itself.  I think we should just all leave Georges the **** alone, let him do his own thing, act, maybe open a gym up, fight off some aliens, live the life his earned.  If HE wants to make a comeback in a few years let him, but let him do it for himself first and foremost, the fans second, the aliens third, and Dana white last behind everything else.

Even if he was going to take an extended hiatus, all the inside info was suggesting he was beasting ppl in training and had put on 6 kilos of muscle without all the stress of reigning as champ. If he had done that for a year or so and came back fresh as the challenger ... damn son.

But now, if he does come back, he'll be doing so on the heels of another ACL recovery, this one on the opposite leg. I just watched the new Takedown documentary all about his first ACL recovery and the guy was nervous taking people down right up until the Condit fight. Having both ACLs betray him won't be good for his skill improvement or confidence.

Sucks.
