Considering what these guys do for a living, and the type of personality required to succeed, i doubt any top tier fighter in any weight class fears anyone. and I didn't specify anyone with my "hater" remark. But GSP puts on a fight of the night performance against a top guy, and now top control is overrated. he peppers the face off Koschek, and he can't finish. It seems that no matter what he does, someone has something negative to say about it. But then again, if we all had the same opinions, the world would be a pretty boring place.
Perhaps GSP is just building the fight. I agree we jump to conclusions.
But a lot of people here seem to say "GSP obviously doesn't want the fight". His big fans even say this.
I hope he isn't pressured into it. I was just hoping he would look for the ultimate test and a chance to cement his legacy as the best guy ever to be in that cage. There aren't always fights that come along that can grow your legacy like that. But GSP has always been a safe guy.
Anderson has far more to lose here than GSP does. At least in my opinion.
