Realistically, did GSP enter the USADA pool to fight Tyron Woodley?

    It doesn’t add up.

    Bisping wasn’t Champion.

    Rockhold and Yoel and Whittaker all looked like monsters and bad matchups for GSP at the time.

    Was he coming to put an end to the reign of the Chosen One?

    It doesn't matter. It's all speculation, honestly.

    Is he still in the testing pool? If so it is only to murk Khabib and he retired.

    I hope these kind of threads ended like this
    Only what if threads which should be allowed are fantasy matchups
    I remember 2012 sherdog where there were 5-6 fantasy matchup threads on the front page always
    Good times

    I thought Georges entered the testing pool after Bisping won.

    Yeah, the Heavies were a cesspool back then. It's much better now.

    The only thing that.matters is what actually happened. Georges came back and only fought journeyman Bisping. Was a good win considering the circumstances, but i doubt he had any intentions of fighting better fighters. Especially when you consider that he struggled mightily in that fight

    GSp entered USADA's testing pool in august 2016, Bisping became champ in june of that year
    seems like everything is adding up (even tho i do believe he would have fought rockhold)

    Oh
    I would respectfully disagree
    I find too much focus on twitter feuds etc
    Nobody talks about fighters except for the 10 really in the news ones

    He was aiming to return at the Canada card that December, he entered the pool just in time to be ready for that. Not sure who was targeted as opponent as Bisping had his Hendo defence in November.

    Well, feel free to provide proof if you're certain. I'd enjoy seeing proof one way or the other.

    There's a post in this thread saying he joined the testing pool in Aug. 2016 which would be after Bisping beat Luke, but I haven't seen anything concrete.
