Plus he did go up a weight class a few times and beat a top 5 ranked opponent in his run.
You see, I don't get this opinion that just because GSP hasn't finished an opponent that he shouldn't be ranked #1 P4P in the world.

Do you know how hard it is to completely neutralize and break down fighter by fighter by fighter for 25 minutes straight in a fight without getting into ANY sort of trouble in that time span?

I think GSP deserves alot of recognition for that.

AS got his ass kicked for 4 and a half rounds against Chael their first fight and the 1st round of their second fight and got KTFO against Weidman in his last fight.

When can you ever say someone dominated GSP for 4 and a half rounds in a fight?

Fuck!!! other then Condit, when can you say someone dominated GSP for 4 and a half minutes or even SECONDS in a fight?

FTR, I am not a GSP fan, I am just saying

There are English Canadians who dislike GSP because he's French Canadian, more than a few.

Qualifying yourself as Canadian doesn't mean you can't be biased against GSP (for reasons other than his abilities).
I have yet to see any of my fellow non-french speaking canadians dislike georges because he is french...

With the French and English beef, it existed more so I believe when I was younger or not even born. Some older Frenchmen and women hold on to their distaste for whatever reason and I think the English held on or the reminding ones that remember don't like how close separation in the 90's almost happened. I live in Ontario and in all honestly I think both sides in a huge way have calmed down "that's a good thing". If your older or just still upset I believe those guys are still upset but there's not as many on both sides I believe still keeping that rift going.
