Isn’t it ironic how GSP only competed once under usada?

    For someone who was always such an advocate for stricter drug testing. You’d think he would’ve been itching to compete the minute usada came around in 2015.

    Instead, it took him another 2 years to get his training and diet/supplementing ready to compete under a level playing field.

    If Bisping wasn't the champion we might have never seen him return since the Hendricks fight. Some people want to call him the GOAT but I think it's silly because he never took risks and became a boring fighter after his loss to Serra. I consider him the most accomplished welterweight but the fact that he tapped to strikes as a defending champion automatically rules him out of GOAT discussion imo:

    Not sure if it was ironic, but it sure was impressive.
    He is undefeated under those conditions - in a heavier weight class - and he has only fought champions.


    Very impressive.

    Yeah shouts for strict testing and then goes running when he knows USADA will be introduced!

    He pissed clean before Bisping, but likely got the benefits of all the years he didn't have to undergo USADA testing!

    I obviously can only speculate, but i would be very surprised if he was clean

    Jon Jones has the worst fan base in sports.

    I mean the fact he said that it's still easy to cheat even with USADA has me suspicious. He probably took a couple years learning about USADA drug testing before returning to fight Bisping.

    I would be hyped for that, provided it happens here before GSP turns 40

    Every fighter loses at some point, Jones will to, does that mean there are no GOATS? Didn’t GSP avenge this loss? Fighting Bisping was a risk, regardless how people frame it.

    who gives a shit if he was on roids? everyone is/was on roids. i don't like GSP but he's clearly the WW GOAT, and one of the best fighters ever. people talk shit about him being boring, myself included, but that doesn't take away that he keeps on winning. boring wins are much much better than exciting losses. at the end of the day the history books will remember GSP as an all time great whether you like his fighting style or not.
