    I believe that if the gassed out GSP that fought Bisping were to have fought Bobby Knuckles, then he would have lost. Badly.

    At WW, the Woodley fight is more interesting. Woodley struggles with the jab but GSP might not be able to present the wrestling threat that's key to his game. If I enjoyed watching Woodley fight, I would watch that :)

    Who is also 37 and past his peak. Bisping touched up his face when they fought, the fuck do you think Knuckles would do to GSP? This ain't 2010.

    Hard to gage a sick as fuck GSP off the Bisping fight, Bobby is no joke and I'm not saying he's an easy fight for anyone.

    My original statement still stands, blame the UFC for the clusterfuck not GSP. He would have been stupid to pass up the Bisping fight.

    From my understanding, it was offered to him under the impression he wasn’t going to do one fight and disappear so Whitaker wouldn’t get the chance to beat his ass

    My understanding is all UFC contracts come with a "eventually, you will lose to Whitaker" clause. It's the hazard of being the best clean champ now that DC doesn't like real fights.

    Haha, I love DC but I'm not above shit talk. Short notice Lewis (with no title fight planned) and Lesnar back-to-back is a shit use of the HW title. I hope Ngannou beats JDS and get to see either Ngannou get the shot or a Stipe rematch.

    But only because Yoel missed weight so it wasn't officially a title defense. Meh.

    That and his bowel collapsed just before the Gastelum fight. I guess an argument could be made he was scared shitless?

    I heard that he doesn't even have bowels. Made it up to avoid have an excuse when Izzy inevitably makes it to the top. No one is scarier than a guy who goes three rounds with 2019 Silva.

    Is IZ saying Romero and Silva are at the same stages of their career just because they’re close in age? That’s....interesting
