    Why doesn’t GSP do the same and unify the belts against Whittaker?

    Aldo went out on his shield like a true warrior. He wanted to prove that he was still the best by beating the best.

    Why doesn’t GSP do the same?

    Aldo is a true warrior. GSP is not.


    Jose Aldo > GSP

    Take your honor and your tai chi to star bucks.

    GSP and Conor are going to make money off the UFC, on their terms, and you're going to deal with it by making threads on the internet.

    I will justify it the way fighters, promoters and fans do, by dollars made, seats filled and PPVs bought.

    This is prize fighting, you think these guys are going to sacrifice what they can make to protect the UFC's dignity? Lol. Have that conversation with a Diaz brother.

    You guys need to get real.

    Aldo never moved up even though he's had a lot harder times cutting to his weight class than GSP ever did. Whatcha think about this?

    nah. You need to get real.
    We are talking about the sport.
    You are talking about supporting a fight that is a circus and makes no sense.

    You are the one sucking up so hard to the UFC that allows them to make those fights.
    The problem is YOU.

    GSP just won a championship fight in a higher weight class at 36. Aldo is getting knocked out every other week at 30.

    That you need to grow a brain.
    He wanted to move up and Dana did not allow him to do so without relinquishing his belt.

    Then he allowed Conor to do just that, with the Difference that Aldo had cleaned up the division, Conor did not defend the belt ONCE...

    Already came out of retirement and beat the MW champ. He actually pulled it off lol so I imagine he’s going to continue to pick and choose his opponents as he likes.

    Yes, people buy GSP/Bisping, Conor/Mayweather, to suck up to the UFC.

    You got it figured out.

    This isn't a sport. It's prize fighting. Fighters and promoters want the big prize. And wanting fans create that prize.

    This is why MMA fans come and go, they pretend it's something it's not until they're forced to accept it.

    Was definitely a disappointing move by GSP, but not altogether surprising. Definitely puts a damper on the 2 division champion achievement.

    Aldo is 31

    Aldo started fighting 2 years after GSP

    GSP took 4 years off

    GSP cherry picks his opponents

    No, this is a sport that is becoming a mockery of what it could be because brain dead blind nuthuggers are so attached to a fighter's nuts that anything he does is great despite how it affects the sport.
    Every single move has a justification, even if it is "dur, he will make money" without even an attempt to think that, if instead of taking care of ONE fighter they would take care of the SPORT, all fighters (and the fans) would benefit from it.
    But no.
    Let us hug those nuts and fuck the sport...

    You prove my point.

    GSP fans are not amenable to reason and facts. Just hate for other fighters.

    Shouldn't that be the UFC's job? To protect the sport over making money? But no, they don't.

    So who are you trying to fool?

    It's funny you expect these principles to apply to fighters and fans, when the UFC is eagerly willing to pimp out their shit, ruin their rankings, make fighters sit out, all sorts of shit that holds up "the sport" for money

    This is a show and an event, and the is sport selling tickets.
