Hell BJ and Randy moved up and won UFC gold and that wasn't enough in some people's minds to offset there losses. Damned if you do, Damned if you don't.
Couldn't have said it better myself.
GSP is and will always be the most dominant WW ever until a guy similar to JJ comes in (new breed).
I hate it when people want a great fighter to move up, and when they do (and lose) they moan about how their stock went down, not the same fighter, etc etc.
I give all the credit in the world to BJ for facing Machida back in the day, it was a very close fight
