Would you be Annoyed if...
 
Condit beats GSP and everyone blames it on GSP coming back off an injury so we get another rematch?

El Bresko 11-05-2012 04:28 AM

If that happened, hopefully GSP would just go up to MW and let Rory try to take over.

Joabbuac 11-05-2012 04:50 AM

It depends on how the fight goes, if GSP just looks flat and not what he was then it would be the lay off and injury.

Yes. Seriously though, impossible to answer without seeing how the fight goes.

Why would a WW framed guy go to MW?
In the infinitely remote case on which Condit beats GSP just give GSP a instant rematch. A no ring rust GSP vs Condit doesn't even make up for a debate, people are just giving Condit a chance in this one because GSP comes from a long layoff and a very serious injury.

Yes it would annoy me. If GSP decides to step into the ring he believes he's ready and there shouldn't be any excuses for his loss and Condit would deserves the belt. If anybody blames the injury for his loss, they're idiots, imo.

It depends on how the supposed loss would happen. If Condit lands a killer leg kick to injured area and GSP is hobbled for the rest of the fight, then yeah it would be safe to say it was due to the injury. If he just straight up beats GSP (not gonna happen), I won't blame ring rust. I don't believe in ring rust.

To challenge himself? To try to become the greatest?

When Anderson was fighting Mach Sakurai he didn't look like a guy that could dominate at 205.

I would be annoyed by an instant rematch because WW is pretty is pretty stacked, and there's no reason to create the same logjam as there is at 155. Even if do end up thinking it was due to ring-rust.

That said, from the wording of the poll it's clear that Harness is trying to troll.

There are lots of challenge's for GSP at 170.
Not counting the rematches there's a whole new lot of top contenders knocking at the door for a title shot (Maia, Kampman, Hendricks, Rory, Nick, Erick, Marquart, Ellenberger, Santiago, just to name a few).
Besides, there's the challenge of beating Anderson Silva winning streak and that sir, would be a huge feat in itself.

I'm totally against GSP moving up or down, he's perfect for WW. I would however embrace a super fight versus Anderson for the WW title if Andy could make 170.
