Meh, doesn't seem that bad. He has hardly fought much in the last couple years. His last fight was vs. Condit....no drama.

I still don't think he wants the ANderson fight....even if Dana said he was 100% aboard before the injury...nothing I saw made it look like he was. I doubt he wants Anderson. I'm not sure if he said it, or someone else....but Weidman is basically a bigger version of himself....if Weidman can't beat Anderson, I highly doubt GSP can.

I actually think if you were to make any champ vs champ match....GSP/Anderson is the biggest blowout of any of them. I really don't think GSP has much of any chance in that fight, not being bias or anything. No other skills he has other than wrestling and cardio would even matter. If Chael and Weidman cannot do it with their wrestling...I don't see how GSP could do it with his.

Would be very respectable if he went for it anyway in a retirement fight win or lose.

I would really like to see him fight Anderson although I think Anderson vs Jones will be a lot more spectacular.

He'll be at least 33 by then. That's the perfect age for his first retirement. Kick back, enjoy the good life, wait for Anderson to get old, make some nike commercials, while the UFC finds a champ for him to come back and fight.

Guys like GSP always retire more than once.

Only guy that really went out amazingly was Lytle. He banged like he always does and beat up Hardy...and as soon as the fight hit the floor at the end he was able to finish by sub vs. the defensive BJJ specialist that is Dan Hardy.

Heh. Hopefully that will shut the "GSP is scared of hendricks/silva" crowd up.

Eh... Not likely...

Seeing how Silva turns 38 any day now... He could be 40 by the time they actually fight...

Gsp is one of the most logical champions ever in fight sports. He will always use his mind over his heart and will. He is not a guy to take risks to ruin his legacy.

My personal thought but perhaps he found that he cant improve more in skill and athleticism and now he is sustaining his current level because of reaching potential and injuries. Maybe this is the reason behind his three fight statement.

Kinda like me. I wanna beat down oldfan but I know I have to keep it professional. In the sense that I am going to his home and sleeping on the doorstep of his retirement home. I am waiting for you...you long haired country boy.

This looks good on paper, but I doubt it happens. Even if GSP were to win all those fights, the UFC would throw so much money his way, he couldn't refuse. The statement comes across to me more as setting up a negotiating tactic, as opposed to pre-announcing his retirement. GSP is way too dominant to walk away so soon.
