Do you think GSP ever planned on defending the MW belt

  1. of course not, he fought Bisping because he was a 38 year old man who was always a journeyman

    81.2%
  2. Yes. He took out Bisping and would have eaten Whittaker alive if it wasn't for his tummy issues

    18.8%

    Finally we have a true GOAT who wasn't so insecure he needed to take STEROIDS to fight against other men and you guys ridicule him? Whitaker couldn't wrap GSP's gloves in GSP's prime and GSP has done enough in his career to pick and choose who he fights. Get off the man's back, you bunch of anti-White haters.

    Whitaker's TDD and striking is MUCH better than pretty much everyone GSP fought in his prime.

    I voted for of course not, but I think you should rephrase the journeyman part. GSP is sly as fuck but lets be real, he is far from a journeyman. But yh, GSP led us all on and knew exactly what he was doing. Sociopathic asshole.

    No, GSP is a tactician, he plans everything. The greasing against BJ Penn, retiring right before strict drug testing(3 weeks), cherry picking Bisping and thus holding up an entire division and so on.

    The poll isn't calling GSP a journeyman its calling Bisping a journeyman, which was pretty much 100% consensus before his 2nd fight against Luke

    GSP's strength and ground n pound is MUCH better than pretty much everyone Whittaker has ever fought.

    poll is too biased.


    i'm a GSP fan and i don't really think he ever planned on defending it, but don't discredit his win.


    he's the greatest WW of all time, arguable GOAT, came back after 4 years at a higher weightclass and got a FINISH.

    You gotta" be pretty freaking stupid to believe there was a high chance for him to defend.

    The poll is worded poorly. It's possible that he was going to since he agreed to it but then he had a horrible time preparing for the Bisping fight because of UC so he reconsidered. I think he planned on it but I don't think he'd have eaten Whitaker alive.

    Why else would GSP take that fight except for the fact that he thought Bisping was an exceptionally weak champ and he could take a free belt?

    Maybe he just wanted the money or maybe he’s speaking the truth in regards to his health. Personally, I don’t care. I’m just happy I got to see him fight again. Hopefully he fights again.

    I have. He hasn't achieved a fraction of what GSP has in his career. And that was with the help of steroids too. As I said, the only clean GOAT and you just want an excuse to criticize him because he's White.

    I think people will now finally accept the truth about GSP.

    That he was an opportunist always seeking the path of least resistance without the slightest consideration for fan entertainment.

    It’s about damn time.
