Why do people always say that?
I think somebody who has 4 title defense in 1 year deserves more prize than somebody who has 3 title defense in 4 years.
Not so hard to be unbeaten "for so long" if you only fight once a year.
1) GSP has 7 title defenses in 5 years. If you're gonna discount the "for so long" comments, at least take his full title reign into the picture instead of just half of it.
2) He fights twice a year not once, all the way until his injury.
3) He was out for almost 2 years, hence the lowered average in the last few years. An injury which many athletes never come back from.
4) Nice try.
