Usman won't ever get close to GSP's greatness if all he does is grant undeserved rematches.

    He will rematch Colby now because of Nate's lucky punch and that will be the second undeserved rematch after that joke of a fight that was Usman vs Masvidal II
    Colby only fought washed up has-beens. His best wins are senior citizen Maia, Useless Robbie Lawler and Jake Pauls future bitch Tyron Woodley.
    His only legit title defense is against Gilbert Burns. Leon Edwards should be next and anyone who says anything different is delusional. After that there are Chiesa, Wonderboy and Luque. The current welterweight division is rather weak I must say especially when compared to GSP's era. Hard to build a legacy like GSP's on those names.

    360 spinning back kick on every donk's head who thinks Usman is close to the GOAT

    Most of those guys are leagues above the mma fighters in the past that GSP has faced.

    Let me guess, Usman is ducking Leon, cause Leon is the uncrowned king of the WW division?

    I cant wait to see Leon fight a top WW

    Most of those guys? Lmao Robbie Lawler and Demian Maia ARE from GSP's era you goof and you could argue that Woodley is too though he was in Strikeforce at that point.

    He is on a big win streak apparently, cant remember who he has actually beaten, clearly no one of any significance anyway.

    That's because current welterweight sucks, which I mentioned in the OP. Look at the rankings. He still deserves it more than Masvidal and Colby. At least he is a different style matchup. Can't build a legacy by beating up the same 2 guys for years

    It's OK. Usman will ascend to No. 1 as soon as Dan Hardy knocks out GSP. I'm assured that all he has to do is touch St. Pierre's chin once.

    Why are GSP fans so damn insecure . I like GSP but alot you Mfers are fucking ridiculous. Usman already has more finishes as the champ than GSP in his entire run.

    Lmao GSP took Hendricks soul, who was never the same after GSP beat him and lost to almost everyone after that. GSP retired rich as a legend and came back 4 years after that and took the MW belt. Stay mad.

    Colby is Usman's best win, and I'd pick prime Hendricks and Shields to beat him

    Masvidal indeed was granted an undeserved rematch, but on the other hand Usman is a quite active champ. I'll take that. It's better to see the champ fighing 2-3 times a year, even if some fights are not great matchmaking, contrary to fighting once per year or less.

    Colby is the only fighter as of recent who gave Usman trouble and the fight was 2:2 in two scorecards coming into the fifth. Although he wasn't active and beating Woodley doesn't mean a lot nowadays, I still think he is the best contender. Maybe Wonderboy next (if he keeps on winning).

    K1 Usman breaks Leon Edwards' bum chin. I mean how does Edwards win? He can't outwrestle Usman and sure as hell won't outstrike him. Usman has good chin and insane recovery + good power when he sits on his punches. Edwards couldn't do nutthin to Nate and was nearly put out in the fifth.

    GSP had 9 fights against 4 guys, girls. Two of those guys (4 fights) were from the LW division, and were unranked at WW.

    Stop your pretend time fantasy bullshit.

    At his activity Rate Usman will get more fights against the WW top ten before the other Champs cycle through guys in and out the top 5 in their divisions.

    Prime GSP got sent into the shadow realm by 5'4" LW Matt "Journeyman" Serra and retired by Big "Pigg" Rigg
