    Stephen Thompson was supremely impressive in his dismantling of Hendricks. Hendricks tried a TD but didn't get it. After that he stayed at distance and flat footed in front of Wonderboy l and got sniped by him until it was all over. Thompson is extremely accurate with his striking. GSP would have most likely shot for doubles and singles at a farther distance.



    How would Wonderboy vs. prime GSP gone?

    Wonderboy on his back for 22 minutes and 30 seconds, and that's only because each round starts standing.

    GSP decision

    He kills GSP today though, GSP fans should tweet him right now to not comeback

    They would never fight. GSP trained with Thompson while he was still just a kickboxer. He's trained in Montreal with Tristar multiple times.

    And the fact that GSP is retired.



    This is just asking how a prime GSP would do against Wonderboy.

    Gsp wont knock out shit. Hasnt in fucking forever.

    He is easy to rock and Thompson has killer instinct. Im not saying Thompson wins every time they fight but id say 60/40.

    Hope his kickboxing is good off his back. That's precisely where this fight would take place.

    Easy to rock? He said prime GSP you fool.

    GSP would grind him down for sure.

    Tough call. GSP has a karate background as well and he had the best footwork, distance control, and speed in his division during his prime. His understanding of distance & angles along with where he was in the cage was unmatched. Thompson is the more dynamic striker but GSP won't be nearly as easy to hit as Hendricks was, and his wrestling was the best ever at WW. Styles matter, I'd say GSP has a slight advantage but man, Wonderboy is the most dangerous striker at WW so GSP will need to be flawless.

    I think his tdd has become great. To keep the fight standing is an art of its own. I also believe that he has been train jitz through this 6 fight streak he is on. You might be suprised

    GSP never retired.

    These threads are worse than P4P lists.

    How would a prime velociraptor do against the entire stable of current UFC Featherweights? We all want to know.

    It would eat half of them for dinner, then fall asleep and get beat up.
