So after seeing GSP struggle as he did against Hendricks it seems clear that even if he had retained the title, and stayed in MMA, it would only be a matter of time before the MMA game was gonna pass him by just as it did Penn and Liddell. Within his next three defenses it was very likely that was gonna happen. And even Tristar's best fighters, Rory MacDonald, Patrick Cote and Francis Carmont, have been doing somewhat decent but not great. With Carmont, many would aruge he has been mediocre at best since it is most commonly believed his wins over Larkin and Tom Lawlor, the latter being a total unknown, don't count as wins. Does Tristar just not have any good fighters to work with? Does Canada, with its karate, Muay Thai, Judo and Jiu Jitsu based fighters simply not have the elite athletes it needs to hang in there with the best American UFC fighters, which is holding Tristar back as they get mostly Canadian fighters? Or is Tristar assuming that the fight plan that worked for GSP for so many years is going to work for the new wave of UFC fighters, and assuming so incorrectly?
