    I know it’s a big if, but if he hypothetically did return, what fight would interest you the most?

    Some options...

    Khabib Nurmagomedov
    Conor McGregor
    Kamaru Usman
    Colby Covington
    Robert Whittaker
    Anderson Silva
    Nate Diaz
    Jorge Masvidal

    Tyron Woodley, the man he should have fought instead of cherry picking a shopworn Michael Ping

    Conor. I'd love to see him dummy Conor like Khabib did.

    Khabib. No one else at this point in his career

    I don't mind GSP but there are some fights I'd like to see happen.

    Jorge Masvidal, we already know GSP is a P4P All time great, but at this point can he be a BMF like Jorge or Nate?

    Kamaru. But to be honest I couldn't give a fool less if GSP never fights again. He isn't that interesting.

    He should stay retired. Old fighters getting concussed and then slurring their words is not good for the sport. Wouldn't be good for him either. He looked slow and out of shape against Bisping, was losing and getting tired before he landed the hook that led to finishing Bisping.

    He shouldn't have been gifted a title fight with Bisping either after not fighting for four years -- nor should he have been offered a title fight with Woodley. Its like saying the Superbowl champions from four years ago should get an automatic pass into the Superbowl this year -- you're supposed to earn title shots, and sitting on your butt enjoying the good life for four years is not earning anything. That's not a knock against GSP, he's one of the four GOAT's, and was a great fighter in his prime. But the GSP that fought Bisping would have lost horrible against the 2010 version GSP. And current GSP is almost certainly worse than the GSP that fought Bisping. He's probably no longer top ten in any weight division.

    GSP should look at what happened to Fedor, Anderson, and say Muhammad Ali (who was a much more gifted fighter than anyone in MMA ever was) when they stayed around too long.

    If GSP was going to fight, he should fight a grappler, someone who rarely throws punches, as there'd be less chance of being concussed.

    Khabib. Anything less than a third belt championship fight would be uncivilized. #Stock

    Khabib. it's the only fight that really makes sense for both guys. there's a reason that's the one GSP wanted to postpone retirement
