    I don't understand why GSP is just now coming back, just 4 days after Robbie loses his belt to Woodley. I'm not saying he ducked Robbie, I just legit do not understand.

    It makes it seem like he ducked Robbie Lawler.

    No one is going to give you any special insight on this that you don't already know.

    The only other thing people will bring up is the sponsorship thing, which I think would be rather convenient that it just got sorted out now, if it did.

    Huge GSP fan (2nd favourite fighter ever) but this seems a tad suspicious to me.

    The UFC lose Jon Jones & Lesnar lately.
    Conor probably will lose gain.
    Ronda, well lol.


    They need big names. So they gave Gsp the money he wanted?

    Michael rang Georges on Sunday and shared with him the fountain of youth, Steinel. All systems are a go, bro.

    now that robbie lost the title, GSP all of a sudden wants to fight for the welterweight title again.... its obvious that he did not want to fight Robbie.

    It is interesting, Robbie beat both Hendricks, Rory and he's proven to go all 5

    T-Wood, while those first couple of rounds will be dangerous, he'll more than likely be tired before/after the 3rd round. And Rory made him look silly.

    1. He has been negotiating with the UFC for a while now, he didn't just start negotiating on Sunday morning.
    2. Robbie never called him out, Tyron did.
    3. It's far from a done deal. I wouldn't be surprised if he came back to fight Alvarez or Bisping or just stayed retired.
    4. Rory used to be in the title picture until very recently.

    gsp likes his nose the way it is. whats really gross is his piggy fans trying to spin there story too make gsp look brave or something. reality is he ducked his whole divison when it was loaded with contenders. woodley going to fuck gsp up watch.

    every month and every new champion we hear GSP is coming back.. to fight conor at 170, to fight bisping and now this.. and everytime this same thread pops up.. Why is GSP coming back now to fight so and so instead of fighting so and so

    1- GSP is retired
    2-If GSP comes back he can fight whoever he wants
    3- if he did come back, why would people complain that he wants to get in their and fight champions and legit competition??? should he fight a 2-0 kick boxer?

    GSP is never coming back unless it's to fight Conor, Anderson, or some other huge draw. Woodley is the opposite of a draw, as was Lawler.

    Just guessing if he is coming back he's targeting UFC 205 @ MSG. My thought is he would fight whoever was Welterweight champ then. It's either that or aliens are controlling his brain!!

    Actually what is gross is your opinion. GSP is pretty classy guy and a amazing competitor. Reality is I should duck your troll thread obviously comes from the wasted bitter piggy heart of your soul. Haha sucker.

    He was probably always waiting for the NY Card. You're speculating that he is ducking Robbie, however Tyron is a worse matchup for him than Robbie.
