GSP devotes his "Time Off" to become a BJJ World Champion of epic proportions.. I'm talking shite obviously but it makes a nice story.

would be a miracle comeback, especially considering GSP couldn't get him down. Tough to sub a guy that's standing.

Very few have done what he has done other than Jordan in my mind. Every single legend prior went on a downswing. I think it's suffice to say he may feel the same especially if he's mentally drained. He accomplished what he set out to do and he's padded his bank account in the process. He's essentially had no life prior to this. He can't eat junk food regularly, pig out, party, basically do things outside of training. His entire life up to this point was built around fighting.

Time to sail off into the sunset.

Damian Maia would be Hendricks kryptonite, he would just grab and pull guard.

See; UFC 95 (vs. Chael Sonnen)

He would get knocked out. See Marquardt vs Maia.

That was years ago when Maia had literally zero striking and it was a flash KO early in the fight. Hes never been in trouble since aside from at times against Anderson.

Not saying he wouldn't get KOd but just stating you can't use something that old at a different weightclass to make a point. Same applies to the chael fight. When is the last time Maia pulled guard like that? I also thought he tripped chael and got mount.

I was just countering the Chael argument. But I would also add Hendricks is 10000x more dangerous on the feet then Chael ever was. I wouldn't really rely on either comparison the fight would stand on it's own. Wasn't really being too serious with my response.
Was more serious with the GSP going out like Barry Sanders rather then Jerry Rice post.

The guy arguably lost one fight(I thought JH edged, but still didn't take the W) to a strong and motivated #1 contender and all of a sudden he "can't keep up with the best any more"? Come on, man...GSP is in a 12 fights win streak and your post looks like it is referring to Shogun's late record.

No, he was ultra prepared, I reckon, but the way the fight was close, to state Hendricks had GSP number is a huge stretch. Cain had JDS's number for a good reference of the expression.

That was Kickboxer Maia, TBH.
