    I am not asking you to care, I am asking you to be smarter as your prior post was dumb.

    Any fight GSP takes at LW and wins would almost certainly be a test fight for a LW title shot. GSP and his team have spoken in the past about him being interested and able to contend for that LW belt and what would now be his third Divisional title. That would be massive for his legacy if he could accomplish that.

    What a bitch move. Had GSP wanted a fight with him, he would have rejected it.

    F*k you man when they name you Sherdog head master I'm a fight fan not a man fan, why Nate Diaz @155 of all the the guys one can test themselves @155 why Nate? It's a winnable fight that's it, that all, for money no GOAT calling no Legacy calling a money fight deal with it stop trying to make it like it's some real fight accomplishment. Want a accomplishment GOAT/Legacy tag fight Khabib/Woodley that's something to praise...

    Amazing that a fighter (who isn't holding a belt hostage) can decide for themselves what weight class they would like to fight in.

    Sounds like sour grapes (or the goad game) over not getting another money fight.

    Personally I don't car where GSP fights, or sorta don't care if he fights. I will watch if he hops back in the cage however, against whatever weight class he decides.

    False and lies.

    When Anderson finally started to call out GSP it was BEFORE his Shields fight and in the lead up to the fight when GSP was doing the promotional tour. After that Shields fight GSP fought Condit, Diaz and Hendricks in that order and had he not retired Lawler and WonderBoy were in the pipe.

    so stop being so stupid and saying GSP and Anderson cleaned out their divisions at the same time.

    Anderson wanted no part of any GSP fight until he basically announced his retirement run and that was fair. Then Anderson was interested in fights above and below MW if they had name value or legacy value (the biggest fights). the exact same thing GSP is doing now and you criticize you would praise Anderson for doing.

    GSP didn't pick Nate you nitwit. This fight was not asked for by either GSP or Nate. it was floated by the UFC to see what the reaction would be, to gauge if it would sell, to set up their future pay days and big fights for the winner.

    it is idiotic to criticize Diaz or GSP for something the UFC floats with out even consulting the fighters. You honestly just need to try and be smarter and we won't have these issues.

    About to enter year 2 of TWood as champion and he's still searching but can't find anyone willing to do a "money" fight with him.

    You sure picked up that ball and ran with it with all that GOAT/Legacy talk more UFC casual fight fan catering. I thought GSP was serious about fighting for legacy taking the 1st step by ending Bisping, now this talk of LW & Diaz. Seeing how bad they want TWood out of WW you would think that would be the obvious choice kill two birds with one stone oust Woodley get a popular former champ back seal GOAT/Legacy...

    But this new UFC is all about flash & bang and get asses in seats float popular names instead of what could be quality fights. GSP maybe a older fighter but he's still very much prime and well preserved after saving his body from 4yrs of real fight beatings I'd like to see GSP really challenge himself Bisping was a nice warm up Diaz is a step down (no disrespect Nate)

    Why change subject? Maybe because you shit on GSP for doing something your idol did. Why the double standards?

    So it's not ducking when almost every champ only fights in their own weight class their entire career?


    But then it is ducking when a guy that's about to turn 37 comes out of retirement to try to win belts in two more weight classes? That doesn't make any sense.

    Oh gsp didn't want to go up to mw sooner. Ok. Why didn't Anderson EVER want to fight the lhw champ. Not Jones when the ufc wanted that fight, and not Shogun when he called Anderson out after winning the belt.

    Mainly because gsp has a lot of haters. And most of them are Anderson fans. Now that it's clear EVERYONE is going to consider gsp the goat over Silva, they're losing their minds.

    Both dude. You're making it more complicated than it is. Beating Ping was a money AND legacy fight. He won a second title which few have ever done.


    If he fights Nate that's primarily a money fight, but if he can make the weight without issue and wins that would set up a fight for the lw belt, which again is a legacy and a money fight. It's pretty transparent , that's why even most of sherdog has figured it out.

    It would hands down make him the goat. It's pretty confusing that people don't see that. Or maybe they do and the idea of gsp as undisputed goat rustles them.

    I like Woodley but he tends to talk trash about fighters doing the same thing he's been trying to do since he won the belt.

    GSP already said on a recent MMA Hour interview that a Nate Diaz fight would do nothing for his legacy. He knows that and everyone in their right mind knows that.

    With that being said, lets say he does accept to fight Nate Diaz (which you seem to forget wasn't his idea) then it is almost a certainty that he will do it to test himself first before going for the LW title.

    It's a money fight, he gets to test himself at 155 and if all goes well he fights for the title which will be a legacy fight.

    But this is just pure speculation because we have no clue if GSP or Nate will accept to fight.

    People need to calm their tits and stop acting like GSP was after this fight so that it will fit their narrative of GSP picking fights. It's the UFC's idea to make this fight.

    It would be nice to see GSP legitimize his middleweight belt first

    I agree with him to a certain degree that it looks suspect but at the same time GSP just wants 3 belts, he could try for it and just vacate it if he won and it wouldn't surprise me.

    That's not possible. You can't vacate a belt then defend it. He's no longer champion. So get this... if he somehow won the 155 belt and vacated then he's the lineal 155, 170 and 185 champ right? And the line ends with him? Or is the LW belt not lineal?
