Rawr!

Thats my boy. Love that kid even if he isn't the brightest bulb.

I wonder if he will get a shot at GSP now. I love GSP but if anyone has the skill set to make him fight at 170 it is Story. Dangerous brawler hands, very strong, good wrestling, nice sweeps, an iron chin and determination.

Time for the UFC hype machine to hype Story up to be a "real test" for GSP. We all know he can't beat GSP.

If Serra could beat GSP then Story sure as hell can. Story imo will be GSP's biggest challenge in a long time if they are to fight.

Story won't let GSP fight safe. He will make him brawl at least a little bit and likely will be able to push him up against the fence a couple times.

Story is a huge WW and is well rounded. I still see GSP winning though as he has better takedowns and gas tank as well as is a faster and more technical striker. He is also a far smarter fighter.

nobody is ever gonna make GSP brawl, making him strike is possible but not brawl that is a mental thing and GSP won't go there.

Lets look at it this way... Story beat Alves, he didn't dominate him, he just beat him.

Now lets look at GSP's fight against Alves WHILE GSP HAS A TORN HAMSTRING... domination, just pure domination.
