    GSP has been out of his prime since his ACL injury. He was no where near as explosive since the tare

    Not going to lie. GSP looked old and slow in his last fight.
    The Rogan commentary went overboard.

    Woodley vs GSP in his prime would've been a good fight though.

    He's on a good run, for sure. I'm not sure how to compare his skill to prime GSP, as the opponent's skillsets and abilities have changed a lot.

    There's definitely an argument for this. Perhaps (prime enough) GSP will come back down to 170 and settle this for us.

    Put the drugs down dude..that white hope rhetoric is bullshit. The UFC was dying for Jones to get his shit together. You have MM, Aldo who was dominant for years, Woodly, adesanya who's being hyped to no end, DC, ngannou who was hyped to no end, as well. And this is all within this year.

    ESPN has 5 fighters in their top 10 P4P that aren't white, that's literally 50%. People dont dislike Woodley for his color, instead it's for his comments, whining about fights and trying to cherry pick.

    Woodbe is the best ever at not defending the belt, I'll agree with that. #1 at going out of his way to duck opponents, and trying to hand pick favorable matchups. He is also in the running for repeatedly playing the race card, poor Woodbe, always the victim. I wonder if it ever occurred to him that people simply don't like him for all of the reasons I mentioned, and race plays no role in that.

    My dislike of McG is even more than it is for Woodbe, I wonder what card McG will play to reason that away. Oh that's right, he doesn't, he just accepts that some people dislike him and moves on. He is far more mentally strong, than always the victim Woodbe is.

    He would beat Hughes in his prime for sure. No one was that good back then. Of course who knows how good Hughes would be if he had been born ten years later and grew up training like modern fighters. Also, I’m not sure Woodley would beat GSP today let alone 8 years ago at his peak

    It’s actually the first wonderboy fight that doesn’t count. That one was a draw. Really good fight too

    I think GSP is the best of all time at WW. No question.

    GSP would probably beat Woodley today. Never mind in his prime

    Woodley has not fixed the reason why he lost to Rory. He still backs straight up and leans on his back foot when pressured with straight punches and kicks

    Shit, i'll give you some arguments. Woodley is definitly very good but he has holes in his games. He always puts himself against the cage and he carries too much muscle and if his opponents pushes the pace he won't make it 5 rounds. Prime GSP would beat him in my opinion. Now? Woodley probably beats him.
