    From what I remember GSP said that Dana & Co. forced him into the cage to talk shit to Hughes to drum up some drama for their fight. He shouldn't be taking the heat for this.

    Kinda funny that one of the most forced, awkward, harmless, and non-offensive "call outs" in UFC history is still being talked about almost 10 years later. Even funnier that GSP has legitimately apologized numerous times.

    Sometimes it shocks me that GSP hit people for a living. At the time, it seemed pretty obvious that the UFC pressured him into that, and it was really half-assed.

    A case of trash talk gone too far.

    I loved this iconic moment. Hughes had talked smack to GSP for months TUF and this moment was foreshadowing to the two serious beat downs GSP laid on Matt U's.

    Lmao one of my fave trash talking moments. It's hilarious how this line only meant something just cause its from GSP.

    Low class.

    I'm not surprised to hear GSP say this- he does seem to be a very polite guy. But thank god he did say it.

    GSP is so awesome that he barely has to say anything to hype a fight and this line had run wild for 9 years.

    I think it shocks all of us. And we get doubly shocked, when we look at this guy and how passively he conducts himself on a daily basis, when re remember just how long we went competing in ultimate fighting at the highest level without so much as losing one round and winning rounds repeatedly by 10-8 margins.
