    Because they are "friends", you silly goose.






















    Eve though they never spend time together outside of UFC functions, don't train together regularly and don't even speak the same language.

    At this point in BJ Penn's career, if he fought GSP it would be like watching a grizzly bear brutally rape an old man while he unsuccessfully fumbles for his life alert button.

    Conor would knock him stiff. People act like its easy to take conor down and keep him there.

    GSP is just your average panicky wrestle boxer, of course Conor would smoke him. Rd 1 Head Clean Off

    No he wasn't. He was/is a fraud and a PED cheat who calls out fighters smaller than him but ducks super fights with Jones

    Obviously its a mismatch.

    GSP should fight one of his peers - the top 10 in the current welterweight division.

    It doesn't seem like a bad idea to book with a warm-up, but it shouldn't with guys in lower weight divisions. For GSP a warmup means not taking on the current champion or #1-2 contenders.

    Jacare vs GSP would be very interesting.

    and with interesting I mean not exactly a favorable match for him.

    You guys should ask Rashad how GSP fares grappling against bigger opponents. I think he could be competitive against any of those fighters. I think Bisping is the fairer fight. Hendricks is simply shot after USADA; but I'd see it. Romero is very large, probably the worst fight for him. Jacare would be an amazing fight, and very competitive, I think. Cerrone and Penn would lose.

    Conor wouldn't fight Frankie but somehow is going to fight arguably the greatest mma wrestler ever? Not a chance in hell. GSP was being nice and allowing Conor to save face from having to turn down a fight with him.

    Yellowed up again bro? When are you kids going to learn?

    I voted Bisping and Sonnen.

    I think he (quite handily) beats Penn, Cerrone & even Hendricks (the guy just doesn't seem to be the same).

    I think he loses to Souza and Romero. Too big and strong grapplers.

    No one on that list comes even close to GSP's level of skills.

    Even if gsp is in his worst shape ie hendricks shape I dont think Connor has any chance really. I mean, I respect Connor but come on. If Connor can be hit by the long punches of Diaz, what do you think GSP will do when he gets his jab rythm not to mention his superior wrestling?

    But hey, if it happens, then it happens but gun to the head ill put my money on GSP.
