GSP, Chan Sung Jung and the infamous gi...
I guess I understand Jung's beef with GSP's rising sun gi and headband. While misplaced and hyper-sensitive, Jung's feelings toward that symbol have merit from his standpoint. I am 100% sure GSP wore his gi and headband to honor karate's origins, and probably because they look cool, not to disparage Korean history.
Here is my question:
Why is this an issue now, in 2013? Hasn't GSP been wearing the same gi and headband to the ring every fight? I can only remember him in a gi and headband. Is this particular Hiyabusa version with the rising sun a new one?
I think this is a totally overblown and ridiculous issue for him to have to address and apologize for.
