Are there really people who consider GSP a GOAT? Or are they just trolling?

    GOAT definition = Greatest of all time.

    Let's repeat......GREATEST OF ALL TIME.



    Ask yourself......would a fighter who is considered "greatest of all time":


    Go 5 YEARS without being able to finish a single opponent?

    Need to rely on scorecards and boring, repetitive lay and pray for "wins"?

    Tap to strikes, by a smaller fighter no less?

    Need vaseline to cheat, in order to beat SMALLER fighters?





    Now let's have a crash course on WIN QUALITY.

    All "wins" are not created equal, and any idiot knows this, except GSP fans apparently. Which of these 2 kinds of wins is more dominant?

    This?

    Or this?

    Want a laugh? Watch how far GSP fans will reach to try and fool themselves that somehow decisioning someone is just as dominant as putting them to sleep.


    You have to literally be either from Canada, or a troll to include GSP's name among the ranks of these killers...

    GSP is absolutely a top tier fighter, the same way Cormier, and MM are top tier. The difference is that Cormier and MM can actually finish fights. You can't be an ELITE fighter if you rely on score cards, judges and decisions to "win" fights. True GOATS mostly beat their opponents so bad, that they cant continue fighting.



    Cliffnotes: GOATS are KILLERS.

    GSP being one of the GOATS?

    LOL!

    Good point. The true GOAT contention according to Joe Rogan is among Jon Jones, Anderson Silva and MM, 'll have to agree with him

    GSP is the GOAT. "I don't like the way he wins" is not an argument.

    Then again, this is just a counter-troll to that other thread about Jon Jones

    What else is there to do on Sherblah other than argue interminably?

    GOAT arguments are unsolvable so they are the best arguments for our purposes.

    These trolls are our high priests.

    Sure his style was boring, but even knowing exactly what he was going to do no one could stop him.

    He outstruck strikers
    He out wrestled wrestlers
    He out grappled BJJ aces like Shields

    Not sure what else he could have done to be considered the perfect MMA fighter

    If it is not Jones due to PED usage than GSP is easily the next logical choice! 18 top 5 wins (most of any MMA fighter ever), beat every man he has ever faced, two time division champ, fought in the top org for the majority of his career, beat whose who of MMA, etc. You are trolling for creating this thread and should be banned imho.

    If you're constantly fighting the best fighters in a stacked division, that yea going to decision is pretty acceptable. And I don't consider GSP #1 p4p, but I never understood the decision argument. In a way, that's even MORE impressive.

    No one is the GOAT. This is the most worn out discussion on these forums.

    It’s completely subjective and this sport is still relatively new and evolving. The fact that people need to call someone the GOAT is just silly.

    GSP evolved the most and pushed the sport forward more than any other fighter imo. The GOAT discussion will go on forever, but GSP's name should always be up there in contention.

    Aldo, Fedor, Anderson, DJ > GSP

    GSP’s resume is subpar and the worst among GOAT candidates filled with one dimensional fighters and LWs.

    He tapped to strikes to a LW. And that gut tho.

    Never tested positive. Avenged his only losses, beat everyone he's ever fought. Winning is winning, even if the guys GSP decisioned went on to get brutally finished by lesser opponents not too long after. More impressive he's able to dominate for the full 25 minutes, especially being in a combat sport where's it's not uncommon to see people flash ko'd or subbed in the first minute or two of fights.

    GSP is the UFC GOAT if we exclude PED cheats; should be obvious at this point.

    Overall MMA GOAT is probably still Fedor.
