    Big fan of both but, provided GSP can make 155, this is a squash match. GSP jabs and double legs Khabib all day long. It also ruins Khabib's perfect record. It's definitely a money fight, and I understand the appeal, but it doesn't seem necessary.

    Also, GSP would javelin Canner right out of the arena but that would be hilarious.

    I'm not interested in Georges one offs where he cherry picks and then disappears for a year. He should fight Woodley or go to some French Canadian clubs.

    I'd be pretty pumped for it, even if it's not completely logical. It would be a hell of a matchup, with history on the line.

    Why does he need to go back to a division he dominated for years?

    You're right, he should go up and fight a one eyed career journeyman for a belt when he ducked Anderson like the fucking plague and then cut to 155 for the first time ever after claiming he couldn't do it in the past, so he can fight an undefeated grappler like Khabib instead of fight Woodley...

    You're right.

    I just wonder if he'll add a special Phil Nurse Vaseline cornerman request like he did the last time he fought a small ass guy.

    your crazy if you dont wanna see this fight go down !!

    It would be one of the biggest fights in LW history !!

    chance to see if Khabib can remain undefeated vs. Gsp being 3 division Champ

    I would say it would be even better if he defended once against any of the LW title contenders ..

    He mentioned on JRE that he wanted to do things that excite him. I can understand why trying other things besides WW would excite him, can't you?

    Silva called out GSP but wanted him to move up to fight him. GSP sounds willing to go down to 155. Also, you can discredit Bisping all you want but GSP is more accomplished at MW than Anderson is at LHW.

    You can invoke whatever you want as excuses. Him mentioning Khabib is a fucking cop out, just like fighting Bisping so it would enhance his legacy because it was the path of least resistance. I can see why fighting a guy like Romero, Whitaker or Rocksalt wouldn't excite him, lol.

    I've actually enjoyed Georges dominance in the past, but if you're clamoring for that Khabib fight, you need to put down those Canadian nuts.

    I agree, not the most exciting fight.

    But I think GSP would keep that fight standing. GSP's standup game is FAR better than Khabib's.

    Seriously. Calling out guys two weight classes beneath your last fight and saying theyre legacy fights is fucking hilarious. Fight 170 or above against top guys or fuck off.

    Jeez this thread was an expression of how I am most certainly not clamouring for this fight.

    GSP going down to 155 and winning the belt would do more for his legacy than beating the top MWs. That said, I agree that GSP should've defended or should be lined up to fight the winner of Whittaker and Romero.

    Winning the 155 belt wouldn't even move the needle for me. It would for his huggers however. If Georges went up and beat Weidman, it would do more for him in my eyes than beating Khabib. That's why that Anderson over Griffin win would mean more to me than it would've if Anderson cut down to beat up on a grappler like Hughes when he was running 185.

    More interested in Khabib vs Ferguson to be perfectly honest. GSP just needs to go off into retirement.
