    It’s a known thing I’ve posted for a long time. He was being tested by USADA while Rockhold was champion.

    Of course all of his haters will still refuse to believe it. Sad fucks

    Yeah I’m calling bullshit. He already admitted during the press run that he picked Bisping because he knew he could beat him. He even went as far as to say he was giving him that work when they briefly trained together too (if I remember correctly).

    GSP exaggerating his own willingness to fight someone....is normal.

    GSP has little incentive to lie and tends to be very humble and honest in the way he talks about himself and other fighters...no good reason not to take him at his word.

    No way he was going to fight Luke, he waited for ole one eye.

    Before Bisping fight: I will fight the next challenger

    Literally next day: Actually nah.

    He lies all the time what?? Lol do you not remember the drama after his first retirement when he teasing at fighting every champ between LW-MW after almost every PPV..

    THEN he lied again when he came back and said he would defend the MW title if he beat Bisping. He’s always cherry picked and has always teased his own returns because he wants to make a boat load of cash (which is perfectly fine).

    If he had fought Whittaker I would have believed him. But he had Collitis apparently

    He ducked Anderson and Middleweight for years and all of the sudden he was down to fight someone even bigger and more well rounded? I don't buy it.

    GSP even said he could be theoretically be killed or permanently injured in an Anderson fight because of the size difference.

    He cherry picked Bisping plain and simple and it worked out for him.

    1. You can't duck a fighter a weightclass above you
    2. Rockhold has defensive holes in his striking - this can't be said about Silva.

    It’s common knowledge that georges cherry picked a one eyed Bisping who had one foot out of the door of an already flukey title reign.

    I mean, unless you have a nationalistic bias—then this knowledge is less common.

    I believe it ..i believe if GSP sets a challenge for himself he does it ..the guys incredibly driven..he fucking picked up garbage and lived in drug dens to afford training in his early career ..he was a garbage man to successful business man and fighter ..

    I believe it

    I believe GSP.

    Dudes as honest as it gets.

    Plus its totally plausible that he could out wrestle Luke.

    I don't believe it but then again it's an impossible claim to prove either way

    Lmao I really like GSP but I dont believe it for a second. I’m also skeptical of that whole colitis thing, a bit too convenient of a reason to not have to face guys like Whittaker or Romero.

    Just like he was planning on fighting Silva until Dana ruined everything

    And then Whittaker until "colitis" ruined everything

    And then Khabib until Dana ruined everything

    So basically, the only time it worked out was against Michael Bisping, who had just had knee surgery and was planning on retiring win or lose.

    How unlucky, GSP wanted to fight all these killers but somehow, someone something got in his way to greatness

    LMAO this is a litmus test for what delusional GSP fan bois will believe. He waited for Bisping. He never fought Anderson. He didn’t fight any contenders after winning the belt. You do the math.

    Jacare in his grappling prime couldnt stay on top of Luke. Tim Kennedy who ragdolled and dominated Bisping on the mat couldnt do shit to him. Bisping won the 2nd round off his back slicing GSP with elbows and GSP not being able to work his top game yet he couldnt muster much with Tim on top of him. Luke has never gotten wrestled

    theres 0 chance GSP is gonna hold Luke down or land meaningful offense or submit him. Hed be able to take him down but hes getting reversed, outscrambled or swept most of the time TBH. Lukes grappling is on another level from almost anyone in MMA

    Why would he lie? What would he be gaining?
