    Its been known that GSP is one of the more real fighters in MMA History. Its okay to be shook before a fight, plenty of Sherdoggers here cant relate but some do.

    Gsp fighting prime 2009 Pitbull Alves was a pretty daunting task.

    7 fight win streak with 5 of those being ko’s.

    All that Bisping legacy and no Woodley legacy?

    George's, the point is your legacy, ya alien abducted dope. The point is can you come back and beat the current champ, not what legacy the champ has.

    Clearly wasnt the case with Ping

    Shields and Fitch were both also really underrated contenders.

    Bisping Legacy = 2nd belt

    if you don't see the value in that you're blind. Woodley is just the same belt he's won like 12 times already.

    Bisping was the champ in another division, beating him put GSP in a pretty elite list of fighters, beating Woodley would just mean another WW belt, he has plenty of those.

    Derp no shit and beating Woodley would add to his legacy even more. But GSP isnt talking about his legacy, hes talking about the champs legacy, which wasnt an issue when he fought the Ping

    It would clearly mean more than that. If, absent from the division for a half of a decade, he comes back in and takes the belt, he lays claim to the time he wasnt even fighting.

    The subject of the discussion, as laid out by gsp, is the other fighters legacy, not his, and that is the difference I am pointing out

    I don’t really agree with Georges here; I think it would contribute significantly to his legacy to come back and defeat the champ a couple generations removed from his last reign, who people are already calling the 2nd or 3rd best WW ever. GSP already beat Hughes twice, the other guy they talk about being the 2nd or 3rd best WW. I think it really cements that spot for him even further, especially to do it years removed from his time as the WW king.

    But, what do I know. It’s his life, let him live it.

    normal people are all scared before the fight, sometimes the fear is even better for them.

    and,we do have also some guys like Nate, they are not scared but dont know if this is something good

    Anyone who thinks GSP is afraid in the cowardly way is an idiot and most likely a Cunner fan..one in the same...

    According to Sherdog Woodley is a boring champ that no one cares about.

    No reason no to agree with GSP.

    I love how people get mad for no reason. GSP can do whatever in the world he wants. Woodley doesn't even deserve to fight him. GSP should be allowed to cherry pick his last fights, and if the opponent agrees just sign it without any more words. Woodley would need to finish his next 3 fights to even get close to George's legacy. But meanwhile not including his last fight he's been boring as hell. People really have to jump in his face to force him to do anything. He's been afraid to finish 70 years old tired Maia.

    Winning another WW belt does nothing for his legacy. Like everyone else in here has said, he has enough of those. Georges ran that division longer than any other WW before or after him. He beat all the top guys in the WW division, all the challengers, all the wannabes. Woodley has not defend half as much as him, he's not a draw at all, and there are other WWs, aka Matt Hughes, that have done more for the division than Woodley. If Woodley hadn't called for Georges 10 minutes after winning the belt and went about his business and put on some good title defences, maybe he'd be someone to think about, but you can't cry for money fights and then call racism in the same minute because the newly crowned champ thinks he's worth more than his 250K at best PPV buys.
