    If this fight went down in 2018 like it was contractually supposed to, how do you think it would have went?

    I think Roberts elite TDD would keep the fight on the feet for the majority of the time. On the feet, Robert’s superior chin and boxing would have resulted in a TKO win for Bobby Knux. About 4 minutes into round 1.

    How do you think it would’ve went?

    I think Whittaker wins, probably by KO. I don't favour Georges against most of the elite MW. He played his hand at MW very intelligently.

    Whittaker would have destroyed him.

    Sadly you didn’t get to see it TS

    if whittaker can shutdown yoel takedown/wrestling then he can definitely do it to gsp.
    on feet whittaker would obviously destroy gsp prime or not. hes just a much better fighter than gsp ever was

    The Reaper would take his soul and store it next to Yoel's.

    Before the Bisping fight I thought Whittaker would run through him.

    GSP looked really good at 185.

    Could see it going either way, but I’m sure Georges wouldn’t leave unscathed.

    If GSP is still "GSP" it would look exactly like the Hendricks fight. Georges showing more damage but finding a way to win like true GOATs do.

    I disagree but RW is a natural MW which GSP ain’t. Size would dictate RW would win.

    Agreed. Whittaker keeps it on the feet and gets a TKO later in the fight.

    Gsp would have to take a beating to get that W. Huge GSP fan but thats a tough fight. Especially watching how he tired vs Bisping. I dont think the weight suits him. Maybe wouldve done better with less rust but still real tough.

    Whittaker prolly 70/30. GSP was looking solid at 185.

    Gus rearranged Jones' face. Diego Sanchez gets his face rearranged every time he fights. So what? To keep standing against a top-level striker is the mark of a warrior, not the mark of a loser, son.

    Whittaker would drop him with his left hook and finish him shortly after.
