    It seems a lot of people are hating GSP because he is going for easy fights. Now he wants an easy win over Conor or Khabib.
    Should the UFC gift him this fight so he can win a belt in a third weight class?

    He would destroy either of them.

    No one would even want to see that. GSP is annoying as hell. Wish he would Go fight someone his own size. Also ducked Anderson his whole career. No way is he ever going to be considered the goat. Boring as hell to watch also

    Should GSP be forced to take fights against his will?

    They've already set the precedent, imo. It'd be beyond stupid to draw the line in the sand for GSP, considering his reign/dominance...especially considering both Conor and Khabib want/would want GSP for the PPV boost.

    Might as well let him.

    May I remind you that talk of either of them fighting GSP started from them or people around them?

    Also, yes. If both parties want it why should anyone complain?

    The only somewaht bad thing about it would be the LW title being held up again.

    But with Conor this would happen anyway. GSP or not. Not sure what will happen with Khabib.

    Yeah why not. He should be allowed to fight whoever he wants at this point. Besides, he isn't a pos that holds the belts hostage. At worst, he'll just relinquish the belt if he wins.

    It's true there is no particular point to it, and GSP will not meaningfully defend a title again, however there is merit to allowing a 2 division champion to try for a 3rd. Given his credentials, I don't think it's unreasonable to have GSP jump the line and challenge directly. If anyone deserves to, it's him. Let's not forget he defended the 170 title 10+ times successfully.

    So did you want GSP to fight Anderson or to fight people his own size? You seem to be confused.

    Why even give him a title shot? He’s just going to vacate it anyway.

    Does it matter? He ducked Anderson his whole career. Now he wants to cherry pick fights against guys much smaller than him. GSP always looking for the easy fights.

    Sure. Your opinion is important. Why else would you share them on Sherdog?

    Yeah he was busy defending the ww title.

    It’s like asking why didn’t Anderson fight Jones.

    GSP is the best MMA fighter we've ever seen. He'll do what he wants. He's above typical UFC protocol at this point.
