    Rocksalt had to say that, he had to pray Bisping put Georges away because it makes him look bad to get KO'ed by Bisping and then GSP, a 170 pounder, comes up in weight after 4 years on the bench and ends Bisping. Makes Rocksalt look weak.

    No he was, what he wanted to do wasn’t working. He made adjustments. Look at rnd two, then George made adjustments to mikes and shut his ass down.

    The difference is GSP is a goat for a reason.

    Litterely everyone that has fought him says you can’t understand until you’ve had to fight him.

    He was right... But despite that, GSP found a way to win... I thought GSP was done before the big hit that led to the end of Bisping. That's why you don't bet on MMA fights.

    If you watched GSP's career you would know that he makes virtually everyone look "lesser than normal." I could give you tons of examples but instead I'll just tell you this. Bispings style is to come forward, punch and kick in volume, and wear down his opponent with cardio and aggression. You can't do that to Georges. If you come forward he will change levels and put you on your back. Georges made Bisping look not himself by not allowing Bisping to fight his usual style, and its not just Bisping, GSP has done that to many, many fighters.

    Are we going with conspiracy theories now? Do you realize in the fight before his last Bisping got dropped twice and had his face beat to strawberries by a 46-year-old, who can't even turn his neck anymore and whose only weapon is a big loopy telegraphed overhand right, which can be seen from miles away and still was landing flush? Not to mention he then had to resort to point fight said opponent who was gassed by the 2nd. Is that the great Bisping you are talking about and who was fighting so "uncharacteristically" against GSP? Was he uncharacteristic against Hendo too then? What about when he got fucked up by Silva? Split-decisioned Leithes on his turf?

    Bisping had his Serra moment and now it's over. Try to come to terms with that.

    Bisping has achieved more than Serra did IMO, not to mention going into the GSP fight, Bisping was 30-7 having only been finished 3 times in 37 fights, he is notoriously hard to finish and GSP laid him out unconscious.

    Luke Rockhold will never be on Georges' level alltime. He will just be a footnote in MMA. He won't even go down as the best MW of all time.

    So many sad haters in this thread lol

    I can't remember the last time so many jimmies were rustled over a fighter picking wrong in a fight.

    Luke gets hated on for being so cocky and smug but I mean c'mon he has reasons to be. Very handsome guy, has an extremely rare finishing percentage in a successful MMA career winning titles in every major org he has competed in, is a top stud in a ruthlessly tough camp.

    He isn't extremely humble on top of all of those things so Sherdog has to say the word salt as many times as they can when his name is brought up just making themselves look salty. It's fairly amusing.

    Yea and it becomes painfully obvious when you look at GSP's career. In 28 fights how many fighters have been able to force GSP to fight going backwards? Bisping's style is to come forward and throw volume but GSP doesn't let fighters come forward on him, he throws whats called a level-change jab and hits a take down if you come forward. He did the same to Michael Bisping. Georges took the center of the Octagon and forced Bisping to circle on the outside and basically fight going backwards.

    I have a feeling Luke has a poor record picking Bisping fights.

    lol. Go watch the GSP documentary/highlight video and you will see you are suggesting not one thing unique in what you say about what happened to Bisping. They interviewed GSP opponents who all said they went in with a game plan but finding themselves fighting off and/or different than they expect or had prior because they end up being forced to adapt to to GSP's fight plan/style and cannot implement their own plan. They talk about the immense frustration in fighting GSP because of that.

    You think you are clever or discovered something new when there is not one thing new or unique in anything you've said. We've heard it all before, cut, paste, repeat.

    I think it might say more about Bisping, being that is who GSP actually fought. I mean, we did see Luke dominate Bisping before. But who knows? As they say, styles make fights.

    Whatever it says about Bisping rubs off on Luke Rockhold, because Bisping recently finished Rockhold. Bisping is the one with the recent win, so he gets the last laugh. The same way GSP gets the last laugh against Matt Serra.

    Sort of. Triangle theories don't really hold up in combat sports. Take Ali, Foreman & Frazier, for example. Frazier will always give Ali a tough fight, if not beat him; Frazier is custom made for George, George gets outsmarted & worn down by Ali. If your logic held in this scenario, Foreman destroys Ali within 5 rounds. But that's not what happened.

    I do, however, think the Bisping - Rockhold situation is very similar to GSP - Serra, only in reverse order. I don't think the better man won the first fight between GSP & Serra. I don't think the better man won Rockhold - Bisping II. But my original point is that GSP beating Bisping says nothing about Rockhold. That's a very odd way to put it. Using your example, that would be like me saying that Matt Hughes is overrated because Matt Serra beat GSP in his first defense. But that sounds silly to me.

    LOL. i could emphasize how clueless you are, but why bother. Once see who GSP will be 2-3 fights you will see the bigger picture of how and why Mike was very wise in how he chose to fight GSP.

    I wonder if that post made sense to you when you wrote it?

    You should not throw around words like clueless when you have been corrected by everyone in this thread.
