    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.

    GSP would most likely stay out of Conor's left hook range, circle around him while peppering him with jabs, let him gas, then bring him in a world of wrestlefuck and pain. Conor doesn't have the physical strenght to bully GSP around like Hendricks did

    Add to this that GSP's too technical, intelligent, well prepared and strategic to fall in Conor's only trap: Left hook

    Very bad matchup for Conor

    Jacare and Romero would be competitive ??? They would rip GSP in half. It would be a massacre.

    His fight might actually be more exciting if he's older and his
    takedowns start getting stuffed for once

    Passive aggressive call out by GSP camp. Firas already putting together an Imanari roll gameplan for Georges.

    GSP has been retired for years, quit immediately before USADA was implemented, and looked like shit in his last fight. Pretending fighting Conor is some sort of mismatch is deluded.

    GSP has been saying he can make LW for years. Well why not come back, fight at 163lb in a catch weight against Conor? He's not coming back to get KO'd. He will come back and fight someone with no TDD... Diaz seems like a front runner.

    I wish GSP would stop blue-balling us. He doesn't seem to want to fight, so why does he keep pretending like he does? It's weird...

    Georges St. Pierre at the top of his game would whoop Conor McGregor at Welterweight, mostly because of the size difference. I think McGregor is the better striker and GSP would have to use his wrestling but he would win. That being said GSP has not fought in years. He has to be rusty at this point. If this fight were to happen immediately Conor has a better chance. If GSP has 2 or 3 warm up fights and then fights McGregor he would win.

    I just realized this is a bump from July. GSP isn't coming back, so why waste your time?

    that doesn't bode well with the previous excuse that GSP was too small, and could make LW easier than MW...oh wait! That was only when talking about fighting Luke, Weidman or Yoel.... now it's Bisping, so he is a big WW again...
    sorry, my bad!

    At what weight? GSP may look like a shell at 55. We just don't know.
