    Conor McGregor called out RDA when RDA was a killer. So I have no idea what the hell you are talking about? Aldo had not lost a fight since like 1986, so again no idea what the hell you are talking about?

    What do their paths have to do with anything I said?

    GSP's path to the MW belt was beating Michael Bisping, a historic gatekeeper who was probably in the vicinity of the 7th or 8th best fighter in the division at the time of the fight.

    That's not a hard path to a belt by any reasonable metric. It isn't "hating" to point that out.

    Conor or BJ Penn have nothing to do with anything I said (although Penn beat the best fighter in his division at the time, and Conor beat someone in the top cluster of the division).

    Nobody was giving GSP that much of a chance going into this fight. Now that he won people want to discredit him. Jeez.

    in the UFC.


    conor has had multiple LW fights outside the UFC.


    i know it has nothing to do with the thread, i just feel like most people don't know that conor has quite a few LW fights, or that he was 2 division champ in cage warriors.

    So you're admitting he was always too big for featherweight?

    Where did the TS mention Conor? But since you did, I'm guessing you are saying Bisping and Alvarez are at relatively the same level?

    not at first he wasn't, he looked fine at the weigh ins for his first like 2 UFC fights and used to look fine in other orgs.


    then yeah over time the cut got worse.


    nice try lol.

    You should be considered a champion if you win the title, period. That's like saying are the NFL champions really champions if they weren't able to win the championship twice in a row.

    Quoted for truth.

    They're all as legitimate/illegitimate as one another.

    So you don't think he outsized other fw? The fucker made Alvarez look like a bantamweight, forget about fw.

    GSP definitely is a 2 division champ. But yes, he got that done under very fortunate circumstances. If Bisping wasn't the champ, GSP would've never come back.

    Now he doesn't want to defend the 185 title, but has no wish to fight at 170 either. But If Maia had beat Tyron, I'm sure GSP wouldn't have a problem dropping to 170 for the title.

    yeah he outsized some FW's, some were roughly the same size like poirier, holloway and aldo.


    he was taller than alvarez, a lot of guys are at LW, alvarez is thick though.


    he definitely didn't make alvarez look small.
