    For someone who went on so much about his legacy it seems he is making some suspect decisions recently, retiring after a heard fight with hendricks, finally moving up to MW after years of not wanting to fight Anderson only to fight Michael Bisping, then immediatly retires because he wants non of Whitaker or Romero..

    Then he talks about fighting Conor....even Anderson has called him out on it recently and you cant blame him...sure Anderson has lost recently but there his fighting Isreal..

    I am by no means downplaying GSP’s legact and accomplishments and I get the money aspect of big fights but why cant he challange himself like Anderson is doing?

    Avenged His Only 2 Losses
    x2 UFC WW Champ(1 time interim)
    9 Title Defenses
    x1 UFC MW Champ
    fought and constantly won in UFC's deepest weight division

    no i think his legacy is just fine and dandy and he will go down in history as one of the best to ever do it

    Ali lost a few fights and is still considered The Greatest over and above an undefeated guy like Floyd.

    It's only clueless noobs who think legacy can "suffer" with stuff that happens outside of a fighter's Prime Run.

    Where did you get Conor from? GSP said he wants to fight Khabib not Conor.

    Anderson is the one who has been calling Conor out, you have it backwards.

    His questionable decisions are setting him on a path towards criticism and doubt about his standing in mma history and his legacy imo.

    Historians in the future will probably look back at this period of Gsp's career with contempt due to the wasted time and potential for true greatness squandered.

    He needs to challenge himself more.

    His legacy is quite secured, he'll go down as one of the best to ever do it.

    A few asterisks, the grease incident, not really taking many risks throughout his career, most of his career was fought prior to USADA.

    It's Impossible to deny his place In the sport though.

    GSP was likely on the juice, so are pretty much all of the best fighters unfortunately. Some are smarter than others about getting caught though.

    It would suffer more if he lost a fight to usada... He is not the goat because he stopped fighting when he still could and most importantly because Fedor is...

    GSP's Legacy is fine. Anyone who follows MMA (even casually) sees how impressive his career has been. Coming back from retirement to move up a weight class and take the strap is some straight Randy Coture Sh!t.
