Why would GSP vacate his title one win shy of Anderson's record?

Seems completely idiotic and unambitious to me. For a guy so "obssessed" with his legacy and whatnot.... just odd.

Is he really that scared of Hendricks that he doesn't care about the UFC record for most consecutive title defenses, the most prestigious UFC record?

It's kinda strange that Anderson lost one win shy of tying Fedor's win-loss record.
And now GSP retires one win why of tying Anderson's consecutive UFC title defenses record.

Is this some higher power's way of telling us that...
1. Fedor
2. Anderson
3. GSP

???

He had stuff to do that was more important than a record that 0.1% of fans care about.

Easy for you to say on the sidelines, junior. And for good measure, Barry Sanders also thinks you're a moron.

Why did Anderson Silva get himself knocked out? It seems these guys lose motivation after being on top for so long.

That record gets mentioned all the time.

Not least by the UFC.

I guess you don't understand how motivation and passion work. If you're sticking around fighting without either of them you're not going to have a good time. Different people have different motivations, just because you think one way doesn't mean someone else will.

his next fight was a rematch with Hendricks. He was not going to break that record anyway and he knew it.
