    They’re both similar in size. Vitor 6’0 74inch reach. GSP 5’10 76inch reach. If they met in early 2013 at 185lbs, what would be your pick? I got Vitor swarming GSP early in round 1 and Vitor winning by TKO (punches). What about you guys?

    Vitor wouldve made GSP tap to strikes much quicker than Serra. This just a really bad matchup for GSP because Vitor is no slouch off his back either. Too big, strong, and fast

    George via decision, Vitor would swarm and then gas out and give up if he couldn’t finish GSP in the first.

    2013 GSP wasn’t as explosive especially on his shots and his mind wasn’t in it, TRTor was too explosive and too fast for GSP to handle, I think Vitor would end it early.

    I think GSP would game plan enough to be able to beat ViTRTor to a decision.

    Can't see Georges beating that peak performance Vitor that we saw in 2013. Would probably have been short and brutal.

    GSP will be much smaller and weaker.

    He however is incredibly great at game planning, and wrestling.

    GSP wins via grappling in 3 out of 4 fights. Vitor wins with a blitz KO in 1 of 4 fights.

    GSP, would have been an interesting fight though, mainly to see where GSP would have wanted the fight, on the feet or on the ground.

    If GSP keeps the fight standing for more than 2minutes, the TRT Kick connects and retires Georges.

    GSP doesnt have the grit to withstand a Vitor barrage.

    GSP fan, but Vitor is my favorite fighter from that older guard of MMA. id have to pick Vitor in this one. Especially the tRt version from 2013. I think he'd be just too much for Georges

    Not many could withstand a blitz from TRT Belfort lol. Would have easily been the best striker George ever fought.

    He fucking spinning heel kicked Rockhold in the face, cracked the great Dan Henderson's chin for the very first time, and took an eye from Bisping.

    GSP wouldn't even take the goddamn fight, and I don't blame him...

    Vitor would have merked GSP. Not the same weight class and not the same supplements.
