    everyone would say that... not just sherdog lol

    It would be consensusized to the point where the opinion would pretty much be a fact.

    obvious troll....how is him not popping for PED's "irrelevant"????

    if you pop for PED's you aren't the GOAT sorry, I still like Silva but comeon how can you say he is the greatest when he cheated? Same goes with Jones.

    There are endless discussions about the PED argument being used for GOAT lists. I don't want to post a long text, so I will be brief. Drug testing has been heterogeneous throughout the history of the sport. Fighters have been subjected to different levels of strictness and also tolerance from governing bodies regarding PEDs. The sport is far from clean, it spans only a couple of decades, and the tests are not perfect. So, fighters that are accepted to be "dirty" have passed numerous drug tests, which shows the argument is a lot more complex that the way it's used in these forums. Then, a fighter like GSP never really fought consistently under the current form of testing, which makes the whole argument impossible to make, hence irrelevant.

    More importantly, when you realize how widespread PED use has been, how it still circulates in the sport and that tests can be "passed", it's best to focus on other aspects of the sport to make such claims of who was better at what and so on.

    The PED argument is, unfortunately, irrelevant.

    Sometimes I like to fart in the tub
    If GSP came back, regardless of his choice of opponent, he'd be ducking one of the following:

    - Woodley
    - Romero
    - Rockhold
    - Whittaker
    - Silva
    - Gastelum
    - Till
    - Perry
    - Lawlera
    - Costa
    - Mcgregor
    - Khabib

    Take your pick.

    GSP is a liar and a cherry picker.

    My point exactly. But they both had a belt so people go apeshit like GSP conquered all of MW. Such a joke.

    GSP would actually take the McGregor fight. His colitis would be just fine for McGregor. He is the right size. Dangerous punching power but I think GSP actually would take that fight with the size advantage

    Not sure what this whole GSP only fights people he has a size or skill advantage over thing is...?

    GSP, and pretty much every champion from is era and prior era's for that matter, fought against whomever was the number one contenders in his/their division. That's what made them legitimate champions. Quite frankly it's what legitimized the sport of MMA itself.

    Money fights only really became a thing once UFC built things around Ronda and Conor.

    It's about how he was such a great WW champ and people always wanted him to go big game hunting. Instead he retired and unretired when Bisping became "big game". Kind of sad how people admonish this accomplishment

    It's a miracle of medical science: lean body mass dependent colitis. I'm waiting for the Lancet article on his case.
