Was GSP's return the most underwhelming return yet?

    It’s a trend I’ve seen emerge. It can also be explained by fighters aging mostly, but it’s a trend none the less. GSP leaving makes sense, with him talking about steroid abuse in the game. I think they just told him his PED pass was up as Jonny Hendricks was KO’ing people left and right and was gonna be a long reining more marketable champ. Then he misses weight and guess what, he’s denied his PED pass too. It makes sense for most of the PED busts if you look at it like this, even though I acknowledge it’s farfetxhed and I say it a little tongue in cheek. The only guy it doesn’t make sense for is Jon Jones. He got busted, but he was always the most marketable and still in his prime

    Well then we all know how a fight with Whitaker would have gone too. GSP by UD if you have a brain, right?

    TS probably thinks Bisping was robbed.

    Yea it was kinda underwhelming. Maybe if he would have stayed longer or fought someone better than fucking bisping.

    lol, tippy toes BJ :D
    that shit was amazing in its own right, so we can compare it with GSP's comeback and find GSP's performance underwhelming in the humor dept

    I don't think he was saying that.

    He said he was returning for months, then announced it wasn't for the WW belt, then aimed a fight against Bisping, then wasn't feeling 100%, then postponed his return, and finally the fight happened and it felt flat. The fight was good tho, but the build-up was weak to say the least.

    No. He came in, finished a man who happened to be champion in the division above him, and left.

    Shit was savage.

    Yep. He was looking really bad in there until he hit Bisping with that lucky haymaker he threw while looking at the ground.

    yeah coming back after 4 years, not even in his prime anymore, a weight division up, and a finish.


    so underwhelming, pathetic.
