He would easily destroy everyone in the top 10 except for Hendricks and possibly Lombard

Could you imagine GSP vs someone like Woodley? That fight wouldn't even be remotely competitive, that would probably be a BJ 2 esque beatdown.

Lawler, Woodley, (theoretical) MacDonald, dare I say Kim, maybe Lombard, maybe Brown, and certainly Condit and Hendricks are tough fights for even a prime GSP. To think he would dominate them like he did Hardy or Fitch is just silly.

And Nick Diaz sucks.
He beats all the fighters you listed.

This.

I would probably also add Lawler and (even though they would never fight) Rory.

But yeah, guys like Kim, Woodley, Jake, Tarec would get owned

Lombard has chances vs prime GSP, but I wouldn't bet on him.
Kim? Fan of him but he just lacks of tools standing. He would be easily outstriked.
Hendricks didn't beat an unmotivated GSP!
