    According to Hannibal Leglock, the 3 criticisms by MMA fans of GSP were that his fights had too much technique and not enough drama, he never moved up a weight class, and he didn't finish fights. But he addressed all three with the Bisping fight.

    Did he?

    I wonder what it's like for a cripple like danaher to work with a millionaire like GSP

    Surely as part of the sensei relationship danaher gets to demand loads of money for surgeries

    like it or not. fan or not. he did adress those 3 criticisms. good thing about this is that it's fact based and not opinionated well except for the exciting/dramatic element which is an opinion.... either way these 3 things were being bitched about and these 3 things he did address.... What more can he do? he wasn't told he never went up fought won the title and then defended.... it was simply he never moved up. he did that. damnit. we are all just spoiled and want more lol so it's not GSPs fault! or is it o_O

    Good for him that he was able to cherry pick the worst champ the ufc has seen 40 yo near retirement Bisping to "prove people wrong".

    Still more then most, still one of the most dominant fighters in MMA history, still avenged every one of the few losses he had, never popped for PEDs and was a champion of extra drug testing even in his prime. The only fighter who even comes close is Fedor, whose position at number one ever is much more questionable since GSP's MW title win, even if it was against old, half-blind pissbing.

    Yep, great fighter, I understand he saw the opportunity to make a lot of money. And I was happy when he immediately vacated the belt as soon as he knew he wasn´t defending it. But I honestly don´t see the Bisping fight as much proof of anything related to what the OP said, excepet as proof that he knows how to make the most of an opportunity when he sees it.

    Your thoughts and opinions are terrible, even for a troll.

    Him dropping the title and not fighting Whittaker was a huge hit on his legacy but just like gastelum/bisping proved.

    Any top MW would finish bisping.

    1. Coming back and winning the MW belt after four years on the shelf was a huge BUMP to his legacy.
    2. The Gastelum fight was weeks after getting concussed, it proved nothing.
    3. Many top middleweights have failed to finish Bisping.

    Hmmm...Danaher's words slither into your ear like a sorcerer's.

    He makes valid points, but I can't tell if I'm being magically influenced.

    The Gastelum fight PROVED the fraud that was the Ping-GSP spectacle.

    Didn't it just prove that you shouldn't walk into a fight with a hungry young lion after being choked to unconsciousness three weeks prior?

    No,

    It exposed how vulnerable and incapable of facing the true fighters at MW Bisping really was. GSP fought the weakest champion in MW history and then ducked the entire division.

    Would've been nice if he "addressed" these while A. Silva was champion.

    If GSP beat superman in a fist fight people would still find some excuse, "but superman didn't use his laser eyes", "bet GSP had kryptonite in his back pocket". Haters gonna hate no matter what.

    1. We had an interim title fight before that who were the best 2 fighters in the division.
    2. Lmao concussion or not bisping is always getting killed.
    3. 39 year old bisping got finished by 2 WWs and that's why he ducked the Romero and Whittaker's of the division.
