GSP is p4p now, and that is that. Jones is a great fighter, but has not been defending the belt as long as GSP has. Plus GSP has been in some wars and did not have the luxury of having a wrestling background before he entered MMA.
He dominates wrestlers with his own wrestling because he works extroadanairily hard compared to other fighters. If you read about GSP, you'll find how he is always looking to reinvent himself with training techniques and unique mental discipline focuses.
Who else would take up the courage to study gymnastics and apply it to MMA??? I always knew this having been a gymnast for many years, and I believe it is the reason as to why I do well in my BJ J camp, but no other fighter has the courage or intelligence to think outside of the box except GSP.
He only weigh trains his lower body and does various bodyweight stuff for his upperbody because he came to the logical conclusion that upperbody strength development does NOT require weights, unlike the naturally powerful glutes, thighs and hamstring muscles.
GSP is impossibly intelligent, kind, caring and athletic. Jones is great athletically and has good size that he uses to his advantage, but that is it. When Jones is defending the belt at 32, then we can talk about p4p.
