    Around the 9min mark.

    Pretty much sums up what we all know.

    - GSP never wanted to fight Anderson.
    - Anderson never wanted to fight Jones.

    Would have been awesome, but can we even blame them? Three of the GOATs and big size difference between them.

    You really can't blame either of them.

    GSP knew about the “whispers” of Anderson’s PED use, when really all you had to do was look at his earlier pics to know he abused something at some Point

    Great career management by GSP. Cleared out his division and moved up when the time was opportunistic only to retire on top of the sport.

    As opposed to Anderson who stuck around too long and killed his GOAT candidacy by ending his career going 1-7

    Wasnt it gonna be booked when GSP was in Abu Dhabi and Anderson put up that horrible Maia performance?

    Bones was saying hed fight in HW since 2013 when Cain was champ lmao

    Anderson ducked Shogun after he KOd Lyoto. Didnt want Hashad/Shogun/Lyoto/Bones.

    Truth is a fighter moving up and taking the belt is rare and almost always only happens when weak upset champs take the title

    No one considered Bisping, Eddie, Jan etc. the best fighter at their weight even tho they held the title. DC KOing Stipe and Manda KOing Cyborg were the only real exceptions in recent history and Daniel was already a HW before he ever drained himself. Before that BJ finishing Hughes.

    GSP ducked Anderson for 10 years. We all know this, even GSP fans who won’t admit it.

    Jones was just entering his prime by the Silva’s prime was ending. There was a super small window to make this fight as opposed to the GSP/Silva fight who both shared a concurrent prime and title reign.

    Anderson did go up to fight Cormier. Which was a pretty awful style match up.

    I will definitely give shit to GSP for picking a weak MW champion to come back against for a gift title shot, but to call not fighting a great guy 15 pounds above you "ducking" is a bit of a stretch.

    his boy? lol

    he hates GSP so much that he even trashed him WHILE he was still his cash cow.

    That’s an immeasurable level of disdain!

    I think he will devote his time to justifying the brutal beheadings of innocent teachers in the name of his imaginary friend from now on
