Unfortunately, GSP is not Jedi.
GSP IS a Jedi. Who says he isn't? He is just not the same Jedi as Anderson is.

Anderson is more like Anakin Skywalker. Eager to finish off the opponents. GSP is like Obi Wan Kenobi. Patient and does only the absolute minimum to make sure he wins. He doesnt like others suffer unnecessarily :-)

Anderson prematurely ejaculates. GSP takes his time and makes you feel the riddum.

You should have read the initial post, because that's literally what she get's told all the time and is answering to with her statement on St. Pierre:

She's annoyed with everybody talking the same stuff about her. Now with her turning it around and just saying the same thing about someone else, everybody gets mad at her.

Nope. GSP is not even close to Jedi. Hes never done anything that can even be remotely considered Jedi. A superb fighter he is... but not Jedi.

I'm no Rousey fan but I think a lot of people are reading too much into this. She is defending herself more than attacking GSP. It is 100% true, people think she's where she is because of her looks and charm... which is a fact, but she can fight as well... all she is saying is that sometimes it goes both ways.

Obviously we all know GSP is an amazing fighter, but she isn't wrong when she says he fights to win fights... and that would get a lot of fighters on the bad side of the fans... and frankly that has happened to GSP a lot, including people on here.

I think this was pretty Jedi ish. Against a guy like Hughes too, who is definitely not easy to sub. The setup was pure beauty.



RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Well. These are Jedi principles. If GSP can't be related to these, who else can be?

They are guardians of peace, and use their mastery of the force to protect rather than to attack.
They must have a high respect for all life.
They do not seek to rule but serve others who rule.
They are constantly learning through gaining more knowledge and continued training.

It is indeed a very beautiful setup and execution by an awesome fighter, but beautiful technique doesn't make you a Jedi.

This is what Soojooko is talking about:



He even admits that he is Jedi
