People keep going on about how GSP just started fighting stiffer competition in recent time and dont mention the fact that he underwent a career threatening injury/operation before these fights.
Nick diaz pre GSP injury would be easy easy work for GSP. No doubt about it. Diaz struggles with wrestlers, theyre his cryptonite... yet gsp (the best wtestler in UFC history maybe) made hard work out of a still dominating performance
long and the short of it is... GSP pre injury was a different beast. Hendrix came along at the right time mentally and physically in GSPs career and now people go on as if GSPs whole career amounts to him being not good enough for the class of '13
Ive got a black belt in nuttin & im not afraid to use it
