    Why is he chasing fights with 155ers? He was a big welterweight. So why chase a lightweight?

    Money, fame, prestige, trying to become a 3 weight world champion, legacy.

    Jumping weight classes isn't frowned upon in boxing, I don't see why it should in MMA. We're so critical of every little thing in MMA nowadays. Given GSP's absolute and utter dominance at 170, I say he's earned the right to fight for whatever title he can make for at this point. But that's just my opinion.

    To his haters: Good for GSP. One of the most talented and cerebral fighters of all-time. A great role model for the sport back when that used to mean something. A pioneer in bringing MMA to a mainstream audience.

    To his fans: Fuck GSP for ducking Anderson and only going after the MW title when a one-foot-out-the-door-scrambled-eggs-for-brains champion had the belt, and for trying to negotiate one last pay day against a LW instead of fighting his heir apparent — who is just as old as he is — for the WW GOAT title.

    One fight wouldn't make or break someone as the WW GOAT.

    One of the smartest fighters, clean, two belts, a slew of defenses at 170, and wins over some of the top names of the last 10-15 years.

    Have a good retirement and thanks for sticking it to Dana.

    Sounds to me like he's making one last opportunity to make the fight happen. We know he's dealing with Ari, not baldfather, but hopefully they can make this happen.

    Of all the opponents for Khabib, there is nobody on the planet that would raise the buyrate better than GSP, and second would be Nate.

    Arguing clean as in PED's or illegal tactics?

    Fair. But that’s how the fight could, and like would, have been sold.

    I think an argument can be made in regards to his second fight with BJ Penn and greasing.

    But in regards to PEDs, you're either testing positive or negative. And he's never popped hot. There is no argument to be made against that IMO. Now all of this of course does not pertain to Jon Jones.

    I'm not saying he definitely took PED's but it is suspicious. Hasn't he only fought once since the new drug testing program? Kinda hard to say if you don't pop you're clean if you're not being tested. In that case, everyone in Pride was clean

    That's fair. I wouldn't accuse anyone if there isn't proof but that's a fair argument.
