    Now let me ask you this? Do you know why he refused to fight TJ, even at 125 pounds? Because I do, and McGregor does it with all his fights.

    I guess John Moraga, Chris Cariaso, and Ali Bag are the same level of talent as Shogun, Rampage, Vitor, Rashad, Lyoto, DC, Gus.... you get where I'm going with this right???

    The best analogy I can come up with is this.

    This guy went 25-0 undefeated beating up every oompa loompa there is. Proved himself against all the meanest oompa loompas in the world.

    Like anyone with any sense gives a fuck about Sherdog's respect.

    He has a belt, the UFC record for title defenses, and a bigger bank account than anyone wasting their time on these boards. Yeah, he has nothing alright...

    He has the respect of anybody that matters--if you don't respect DJ than you're not worth worrying about.

    DJ is small for his current weight class, so he has even more of a reason to hang back than the others. Heck if there was a weight class below his, he'd easily make weight there.

    Difference is GSP would have fought Anderson had he moved down to WW, like how TJ wanted to fight MM at his own weight class.

    How many times had st pierre fought at mw prior to his recent match vs bisping? Before getting chased out of the bw division, mighty duck had spent his entire career there; he's already cleaned out flw, and yet he still refuses to fight anyone who isn't an easy victory.

    GSP said he’d fight Silva if hebcame down to 170 and challenged for the belt.

    Said he wasn’t done at WW yet and if he fought Silva @ MW he’d need the time to bulk up to 185 and never go back down going up for one fight and back down to 170 wouldn’t work right.

    That’s not the same as ducking.

    Ducking is when there are contenders in your own division you won’t fight.

    We’ve seen plenty of that lately.

    How would Silva have done it from his back? 50-45 GSP. In 2017, GSP could beat Silva standing up.

    That's the problem with haters... they don't accept logic and facts get in the way of their hate...
    Good luck :)

    Hahahahaha!
    If Sherdog would know respect, he would have gotten it already from them.
    As it is though, he would never have their respect.

    The dwarf has been fighting nobodies in an obscure division no one cares about. TJ was willing to come down and give him the money fight he's been crying and whinging for.

    Midget refused = duck

    GSP never picked and chose his fights, and those 3 fighters/7 times are comprised of three current/former champs, and occurred in the space of 5 years in which he also fought 6 other guys. Asshole.

    Nice to talk to you, Mighty Mouse!

    Didn't know you had a Sherdog account since 2011.

    Excpet Mighty Mouse wouldn't get paid enough for that money fight....

    It's as simple as that why can't people like you see that? McGregor does it all the fucking time.

    How do you know it's not enough? What's he worth anyways, when no one cares to watch him? If he'd beat TJ then he could've actually become a draw, but he chose to hide and remain a bum. McGregor's a ducking goof too, but at least people pay to watch him.

    DJ at the time already signed a contract to fight Ray Borg

    When TJ came along, the UFC wanted to make that fight happen, but they wanted to pay DJ the same amount he would've made to fight Ray Borg, which we can all assume wasn't a lot.

    Because of this really bad business deal, DJ refused.

    It was all about business, not DJ being "afraid" or trying to duck TJ.
