    Seriously. GSP is the GOAT MMA fighter. 10 straight title defences in a WW division that was full of killers. Only lost 2 fights ever, and avenged both with finishes. Beat 2 Hall of famers. Never talked trash. Never got busted for any type of PED. The first half of his career was almost all finishes. Then he blew out his knees, and couldn't get the finish, but still dominated guys like Condit, Diaz, shields, Penn etc. Like serious wtf?

    In my eyes I'm okay with GSP coming back and fighting Bisping for the belt. GSP retired the WW champion, with more title defences than any WW will be able to try to pass. He wants to move up and challenge for the belt. So be it. He's earned it. Sherdogs hate for GSP makes zero sense.

    He is the GOAT, but the guy's been gone for half a decade, and he's fighting in a weightclass he has never competed in before.

    He is the all time best, but this fight is a silly match-up tbh.

    That said, will watch. lol

    9 title defenses (controversial 9th title defense) not 10.

    His resume is overrated filled with one dimensional fighters and LWs.

    It’s Sherdog and here everyone is hated except for perhaps Gina Carano.

    He had all the skill in the world but never seemed to push for the finish. After Serra KO'd him he didn't like to take risks and people don't want to see that from a champion. Also he GTFO'd before USADA testing so we can't be sure if he ever was on PEDs.

    Fighters have come out and said that they actually encouraged and possibly even provided roids to fighters.

    It's 9 consecutive dude. Winning a belt doesn't count as a defense. He got the Interim from Hughes and then beat Serra for the real belt. Those aren't defenses.


    Look it up bro, cause you look like an asshole when you're spreading false information.

    Even she got some hate following the loss to Cyborg. Totally unjustifiable imo. :D

    According to some Conor fans, unifying a title, is defending an Interim.

    That's not necessary. I'm a huge Conor fan and still made this thread. I know it seems crazy someone can be a fan of both Conor and GSP

    Hated the safe approach he had in fights where he totally dominated, he didn't give a fuk about the fans. Even Mighty mouse takes more risk to get the finish when he outclasses his oponent.

    Even if it was it doesn't count as defending the real belt. So once you get the unified belt your defenses are reset.
