    I know I know, Bisping is not the greatest champ the 185lb division has had. But GSP is universally considered one of the greatest of all time, usually 3rd behind Jones and Silva. With Jones and Anderson questionable due to their failed tests, I think becoming a 2-division champion would be more than enough for GSP to ascend to the #1 spot. With his legacy at 170 secured and adding a 185lb title reign to his resume, especially at this stage in his career, I think he could finally get that #1 spot.

    100% yes, you can even argue that GSP is #1 now. Silva and Anderson are disqualified.

    GSP can change the orbit of the moon, he won't be considered GOAT.

    Too many embarrassing losses. Ducking true contenders at MW. Bisping doesn't get in the conversation.

    Did they test positive for their fights? DC's loss is being reversed for example.

    This is very good for GSPs legacy. GSP always used weightclasses as a reason to not fight the best of his time. I think this has always been what put GSP quite far behind guys like Anderson or Fedor.

    If he fights And beats a few of the top mws, it will certainly bring him up among the top goats.

    "But GSP is universally considered one of the greatest of all time, usually 3rd behind Jones and Silva." Fedor respectfully disagrees with this statement.

    As for GSP, a reasonable argument could be made for him being the GOAT right now. Reasonable arguments could be made for Fedor and Anderson, as well. When delineating between fighters at that level, we're really just splitting hairs.

    Beating Bisping would be a nice feather in GSP's cap, but it's probably not something that should push him over the top. You can't hail GSP for becoming a two-division champion without talking about whom he beat. Bisping is a solid fighter, but he's just a mid- to low-top 10 caliber MW. He'd probably be the underdog against at least 5 MWs.
