    This made me so angry all those years watching those guys chicken out of superfights. Why didn't they try to do what Conor did?

    Because they are real champs who actually defended their belts like great champions do

    Aldo wanted to fight Pettis at LW but Dana didn't allow him, double standards of peace

    Since when did not trying to challenge other champs when you're currently a champ mean you arent a "real" champ.

    One thing is they were actually fighting at their weight class instead of killing themselves to fight smaller competition.

    Talk about Chicken, you goof.

    GSP was supposed to fight Anderson after the Maia fight, he was going to walk in the cage and challenge Anderson. After Anderson made a mockery of the fight, Dana White was so pissed he called it off, left the building, and said later that Anderson no longer deserved to fight GSP. After that GSP and Anderson were tied up in their divisions with contenders and the timing never really worked out again

    They were too busy setting title defense records in their respective weight classes and putting themselves into the GOAT conversation in the process.

    They were cleaning out divisions + they didnt have easy fights in the higher weightclass like Conor did

    GSP had to fight another GOAT in Silva

    Silva had to fight another GOAT in Jones

    Conor got to fight a bellator fighter
