I was going to say, let's not act as though Ben is facing anywhere near the talent GSP is. To even compare the two is laughable. I'd be willing to bet 99.5% of this forum hasn't even heard of Ben's last two opponents. And I'm more than positive that GSP would have more finishes UFC title contenders consisted of the likes of Andrey Koreshkov and Jay Hieron.

I want Ben in the UFC just so I don't have to hear him run his mouth about being the best WW out there anymore. But even mentioning him in the same breath as GSP is just flat out silly.
