GSP's reach is 74 inches. I suppose you are going by the latest tale of the tape, which is wrong, unless freakishly, GSP's arms grew 2 inches. For his career, his reach has been 74. The measurements were probably just off. Doesn't surprise me, the measurers are known to suck.
And no, GSP is a black belt just like Rashad is a black belt, they have the belt but it'd be a miracle to see them actually sub someone. Besides a bunch of transitions, all GSP had to offer Hardy was a bunch of admittedly sloppy attempts that weren't even done correctly.
Well that means we got two numbers here and none of us knows wich one are correct. It isn't that important anyway cause George is years ahead in the striking department.
And GSP is a very very legit Blackbelt! He earned his Blackbelt under the best BJJ practitioners in the World. One called the master of BJJ himself Renzo Gracie. It took GSP years and years.. just like every other Blackbelt out there. That it doesn't always work out in a fight is just normal.
Anyone who thinks GSP could even compete in a fight is insane it would be the equivalent of Rashad fighting Brock.
Lol guys thats just ridiculous!!! Again the best example I can give you guys is when BJ Penn ( yes the lighweight actually Featherweight fighter BJ Penn) took on Lyoto Machida ( a HW fighter at that time and we all know what Machida has become since then) and fought him to a very very close decision. That was a demonstration on how much worth experience and skill is. Plus BJ wasn't even used to fighting inside a Ring. Lyoto however fought his entire early career in a Ring.
BJ was know as one of the greatest fighters in the World at that time. Lyoto was a unkown fighter from Brazil with amazing potential and talent. Just like Jones just like GSP!
If you truly believe GSP can not even even compete with Jones then well yes, you are delusional.. AND YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT!!!
There is no aspect where Jones has an advanatge other then size and MAYBE but just MAYBE Wrestling. We all know how great GSP is in that aspect too. So Jones is outclassed in every aspect here. The only thing he has going for him is his size advantage and reach. Maybe athleticism.. but even there we all know what a freaking athlet GSP is.
It's just silly to say something like that to a number 1 p4p fighter! Size matters yes. It doesn't matter that much.
