    I think right now Tyron is above GSP a large margin.
    GSP has nothing for Tyron.

    It's definitely the fight to make at 170. I just don't think GSP wants the fight and really he shouldn't. I don't think GSP wants the grind of being champion and defending the title 2-3 times a year. It's by far the biggest fight Woodley could have and he has earned a big payday fight. I'd definitely pay to see it. But I doubt that it happens unless the UFC gives GSP A LOT of money, Conor type money.

    The UFC should give GSP all of Conor’s money, in my opinion. Like, not the same amount, the actual money that is currently in his account.

    GSP also suffered TWO torn ACL's,

    one is bad enough.

    I really don't get this. He's not a great rapper and sports fans have been notoriously quick to mock athletes that put out albums. Similarly, Woodley made bones on TMZ but, again, MMA fans aren't exactly the type to love Hollywood gossip. Just feels like he's trying to be too creative before he gets the basics together in the money-making part of his career.

    EDIT: Said another way, I believe Woodley probably did more financial damage doing things like calling MMA fans racist than he's doing positive for himself with albums and TMZ. And that's what makes me scratch my head about a guy who complains about money.

    GSp has never ever wanted to be the best.

    But he will cleverly maneuver and manicure things to make him APPEAR to be the best.

    See, the best want to fight the best at their best. And that's just not something GSp has ever been interested in.
    He passed on a chance to take on Anderson Silva years ago. He's still passing on it. He took on a half-blind over-the-hill Bisping.
    He wants no part of Woodley. But he'll take on undersized Connor, who has is smaller and 2-2 in his last 4.

    I have said it for years. His primary concern is about his legacy. Its why he walked away. Its why he's cherry picked fights. Its why he hasn't taken many of the opportunities that he could have taken and made himself a lot more money. He is all about his image and his legacy. Georges St-pierre is not a fighter. Fighters don't concern themselves with things like legacy. Fighters see a chance to be known as the very best ever, and they take it.
