    He only weighted about 200 to face Bisping, Kevin Lee cuts from about there. He should be able to lose 15 lbs or so and cut from 185, probably losing a bit of muscle.

    If GSP ever has the balls to actually step in the octagon with Khabib, mother Russia will own Canada.

    GSP is never making 155, I'd bet my account on it.

    He's holding out for the induction of the 165 lbs class before he sets his sights on Nurmagomedov in earnest, mark my words.

    He said on Rogan’s podcast he weighs 185 now and that he could make 155.

    "will" I think what you mean is in your opinion he can make 155 and would beat Khabib, saying he will do it though is just stupid. First of all GSP would probably want a lot of money to take this fight (or any fight) and if Conor wants the fight GSP will have to get in line.

    Gsp gasses in the second and proceeds to get mauled.

    No one has pressured gsp like khabib would.

    What do you think Khabib weighs right now? I bet its pretty close to 185.

    If GSP could easily make 155 he would have done it 10 years ago. No way he makes 155 now at his age. GSP was drawn out at 170 5 years ago.

    THis is just talk for a weight cut that will never happen.

    And he wants no part of Woodley.

    I disagree. I think GSP could very well make 155. He can lean down to 180 with diet and cardio, and cut from there. 180 -> 155 cut is easily possible.

    GSP has a much higher chance of making 155 than TJ ever has of making 125.

    Weight cutting science and technique has evolved IMMENSELY in the past 10 years. GSP was even talking about how he was a small WW around the time he retired.

    I'm not sure if that's a legit question, but yes you can. Consider he fought Bisping in November. Bulking up to 200+ pounds gave him intestinal problems, because of the high calorie diet. He probably immediately switched to a leaner diet, and started doing tons of cardio + low-weight endurance lifting.

    Someone that is bulked up like GSP was could easily lose 10-15 pounds in 6 months (which is how long it's been).

    "Weight Cutting Science"? WTF.

    Where is another 15 pounds going to come from? Plus, now he is 4 years older. Maybe he could lose 5 more pounds. But 15? No friggin' way.

    GSP 165 vs mcgraga for moneybelt and habib at 155.

    the truly undeniable GOAT if that happens.
