Or this new guys are just that good? Seems like GSP will struggle against current top 10.
GSP never really had that aura of invincibility tho, dude got caught on multiple occasions. I think he's just a super smart guy and that's what won him a bunch of fights. I feel like the "new breed" are all pretty "dumb" when it comes to gameplans and such so I'd imagine GSP would still do well if he did come back. Maybe he wont ever be champion again, but he's getting up there in age and nothing lasts forever.
The last of his prime was the Alves fight imo.
Take nothing away from the new guys, but none of them would have anything on Prime GSP. Prime GSP would mop the floor with everyone in the WW division of today.
Wtf are you talking about "never had that aura of invincibility"?
Hardy and Kos???
When you say he didn't have an aura of invincibility and got caught on multiple occasions what do you mean?
Because he only lost a handful of rounds over the course of 27 professional prize fights (59% of those fights were for a title BTW)
Also, invincibility only exists in the imaginary world of adolescents. Time to take off the Underoos.
 GSP is undefeated when fighting in a ring and equally dominant in a cage. Fedor had more losses in a cage, and Anderson had more losses in a ring, than Georges had throughout his entire professional career.
Hendricks is the paper champ.
GSP is a BEAST.
Not in his prime but able to beat the current UFC "champ"
No he is not. I suspect some hate trolling going on here.
no, that's just what happens when he can't out-blanket a fighter or out-jab a fighter.
his only 2 game plans.
As far as the top ten goes, maybe the top guys could give him issues but he'd still beat most of the top ten.
Very clearly past his prime and has been for awhile.
He's on the wrong side of 30 and is coming off of two ACL tears. I'd say it's safe to say that he's past his prime. I honestly think he's done.
He looked good in those fights, but just not the same as Alves and before imo. just not the same.
He's got to be he's 33, fighters are so far past their "primes" at 33, ask Fedor fans.
I am sure GSP would still be champ if he was back, but he hasn't looked so impressive after his injury, so it is near the end.
Much more excited about the division now than when GSP was laying on everyone, but Hendricks, Lawler, Tyron or Lombard Can not beat him.
Some fighters find their stride earlier than others.
his last fight was like 7months ago bro.. of course he'd still be champ.
He'd mop up rest of the division honestly.
I mean I'm speaking for myself, but he never came of as unbeatable to me because he seemed susceptible to getting KO'd. His last three outings didn't help either but that's just his age and probably his injuries catching up to him.
