If GSP wasn't 'Canadian' or 'good looking', he'd still be the most dominant WW in UFC history and the company's champion. How he'd be unknown is beyond me.

Rhonda wants to feel the riddum. That's all.

Ronda is right though.

If GSP wasn't Canadian he's just be another Frankie Edgar or Cruz.

A champion that no one really cared about and did basement numbers.

Let's be honest no one is watching GSP fights because they think they will be exciting. It's mostly just Canadian homers.

LMAO! Looks like the Diaz brother's penchant for saying dumb things is rubbing off on Ronda.

As a Canadian, I can assure Rousey that being Canadian in no way increased GSP's notoriety. That's ridiculous.

However, there is no question that being a good looking guy helped GSP.

Just like being good looking has helped Ronda or Tom Brady or Tiger Woods.

As for GSP only fighting to win matches...Rousey should ask Koscheck how his orbital bone is doing, or Hardy's arms, or Fitch's face.

Someone didn't get enough hugs from Mommy and Daddy as a child.

Or did Daddy take hugging too far...?

Wow is that photo of Ronda real??? I saw that photo... but it never went that low on her body!

And in regards to what she said... she just said it to stay in the news... and because she's tight with the Diaz brothers. Anybody who has been a Champion for this many years will be "known".

I think GSP will take this fight easily.. Condit was a way tougher fight for him.

I didn't know GSP was good looking...I thought he was average...

But yeah, I don't find Ronda attractive at all, so perhaps that's why I have no patience for her non-sense.

I think Miesha or Marloes are much better looking...but that's just my opinion...

GSP/Condit was one of the most exciting fights of 2012. You're welcome.

Not to mention before the Serra fight GSP was extremely dynamic and was finishing guys left and right.

Edgar and Cruz who are two of my favorites never finished guys the same way GSP used to, they've always been guys who score points although Frankie dropped Bendo and finished Veach and Maynard.

Some times I wonder what GSP would have been like today if Serra didn't TKO him. Would GSP be pulling off highlight reel finishes like Anderson Silva? If you look at GSP's record before Serra... most of his fights FINISHED as TKO's or submissions... then right after Matt Serra all his fights were "decisions".

Matt Serra robbed us of excitement in the WW division...
