You have no idea what the press conference is even about, and yet it's sad and pathetic. Yeah... you don't have a personal bias against GSP

the way this is playing out makes it seem like Dana is desperately tyring to talk GSP into not retiring and GSP really hasn't made up his mind yet. He's on the fence thinking he'll probably retire but not 100% sure and he's told Dana he'll rematch Hendricks but only half-heartedly agreed.

If GSP has any sense he'll retire now, that fight with Hendricks was a blessing in disguise, all the signs should be setting off alarm bells in his head. He's broken the records, he's fought everyone and now it's time to quit on top instead of getting brain damage. GSP just isn't phsyically capable of hurting Hendricks and the next fight probably would take a few years off his life knowing GSP he'd get hurt but be skilled enough to evade for a while resulting in serious brain damage. God I hope that doesn't happen. The writing is on the wall, he eeks out a win and he'll get murdered in a rematch, hopefully he resists Dana's silver tongue.

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
He did dominate condit and nick (although I do believe nick could have fought way better he didnt try anything from the guard and he wasnt that active striking) You can't tell me even thought they both lost 50-45 that they both arent better than kos,alves,fitch,hughes,hardy etc. as worthy challengers. Also They both did mark him up and condit nearly finished him.

I don't want him to retire. I want him to fight Hendricks again. Either that or give the belt back to Johnny, who earned it.


And GSP these days is as exciting as watching paint dry.

As if GSP didn't earn it by finishing the most feared man in the UFC at the time... twice.



Also, I am amazed you actually watched paint dry in order to compare it to GSP. Night the brightest fella are yah?

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

Best posts of the thread, and all that needs to be said, IMO. Hope he retires - he hasn't been the same for a while now; he's not all there.

My problem is this convenient excuse that GSP is mentally checked out instead of his opponents are just that good where back only a few years ago GSP could make a sandwich and beat his opponents.

His last 3 opponents marked up GSP because they weren't one dimensional or older gen fighters. He dominated nick diaz but ended up still looking like crap, he dominated condit but he still nearly got finished and banged up and well hendricks fight speaks for itself.

This is exactly like the anderson silva fanboys not being about to fathom that their god can look mortal yes there are actually decent enough fighters out there to match them.

Why and how it MUST be one thing or another? I can clearly see the two bold situations going on altogether.
Motivation tend to decrease along the years (specially if you are on top for ages) and competition level tends to always evolve and we can see that, so, this can very well be the point those lines are crossing on that graphic for GSP and Anderson as well, as for many other not that celebrated fighters, by the final part of their careers.
