Well, considering he completely shut down and dominated both Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit, maybe he is actually that good

MMA fans are fickle mush-heads and little better than professional wrestling fans. Both have short term memories. GSP struggles against Hendricks, and all of a sudden, he's "not that good", or he's "done", or he's "a *****". It's really quite ridiculous.

As for other posts in this thread, a hearty LOL @ "GSP should retire via Twitter" and "retirement isn't a hard decision". The man is arguably the face of MMA, and he's going to announce something as crucial as his retirement via Twitter... you know, like any other high end athlete

I don't even know anything about the press conference. I made the twitter joke and ran with following responses out of boredom . Although planning on retiring just because you basically took an L is terrible for the "face of MMA". I agree with you, who says he's lost a step? He's as good as he has ever been.

No one knows his reasons for retiring, or if he even is retiring. For all we know, his mindset and other personal issues might be affecting his performances. I'm not about to demand that GSP risk brain damage at the hands of Hendricks so as to appease my sense of entitlement before he retires.

I do not appreciate GSP style that much, but I will miss this guy around if he really decides to retire. All the power to him if he wants to, even with the controversial "win" over Hendricks.

GSP is all commitment, hard work and respect. Overall I consider him not only one of the best athletes of all times, but also the far best personality in MMA. And if his style does not please everyone, his opponents, some high level SOBs, certainly had no answer to shut it down.

I will provide the excuse I saw for him for the last fight: I think Hendricks edged that fight, but I also think GSP's head is going through performance debilitating issues. He wasn't as concentrated as in other times. Ok, maybe JH was too strong for him, a better wrestler, whatever, but that's why I would like to see the rematch.

Win or lose, I think this is the fight to make and possibly (and hopefully), that will be GSP's announcement in this coming conference. Hendricks rematch, then retirement win or lose.

Dana said it's not a press conference, just some mall opening with GSP doing some press.

So in short...

You don't want GSP to retire, so you want him to hold onto the title.
You don't want Hendricks to get a rematch, even though almost everyone thought he won.

And you prefer Hendricks to GSP?

I'm not buying it man.

This cracked me up.

If he retires, good for him, great career.

If he doesn't, then this is just sad/pathetic.

I have a feeling it will be a bunch of nothing like how Dana always had "big news" and it would end up being how he picked the TUF team colors or some shit.

...This is just too odd. GSP has been mentally on target ever since he won the belt back years ago. He's getting like Anderson was after Weidman KO'd him. Weird. Unpredictable. Flip-flopping. I think GSP's competitive drive is too great for him to walk out now. If anything, GSP would want to retire without any doubts left in his mind or the fans. I'm sure Georges will take some time, gather himself and fight again. I seriously doubt Dana will let him off the hook that easily...
