GSP headkicking Hughes will always be one of the biggest changing of the guards in this sport. I really loathe his fighting style for a lot of his fights but he's a hard worker and you gotta give respect.
Also he's a genuine class act. There are a lot of people who pretend to be humble but he really is.

ESPN interpret it as GSP alluding to his lack of support from the UFC over the drug testing issue . He said people are "not ready" for the sport to get cleaned up just yet.

This follows on from GSP saying prior to the fight that he was "very disappointed" in the UFC over their lack of support over drug testing.

When you have "champions" like Jose Aldo going round saying things like "everybody uses steroids" you can't deny that it is a worthy cause that needs addressing.
Why the "quote" on "champion"? GTFO. What a loser.

So true...such a lackluster champ that got more attention for his looks than what he produced in actual fights or lack there of.

The attention he got had nothing to do with being WW Goat and involved in most P4P Goat discussions?

The final chapter has not been written for GSP. He will be back IMO and wear the belt again.. I see GSP being out for about 1 year then coming back to fight 2 or 3 more times and retire for good.

I remember an old interview from the Shari Spencer era or prior where he said that included doing something crazy like going up in weight class to maybe even 205.
