Great read, Thanks!

Aside from his fighting, which is pretty much everything.

It's things like his professionalism and likability that will really make him stand out for years to come. I think it's great that he shows up wearing a suit, as compared to the track pants and hoody. Not to make it just about attire, but with things like that he's making MMA it into a "real" sport (ie bringing mainstream acceptance). Not many guys are doing that.

Let me see if my mighty rep power can help.

EDIT: Just not powerful enough, I got him down to one green dot.

imo GSP wouldnt be as dominant at 185 but would still do very well. He'll have to adapt his game to much larger opponents thus a bit less wrestling and more grappling.
I think his BJJ is very underrated and we'll see him using it (more) at 185.

EDIT: oops, mixed up with the other GSP thread, i guess i can still leave my post here.

I wish I was a cool kid with superpowerful rep .


all GSP needs to do to be a legend is keep fighting IMO. He'll get there naturally, no need to go all BJ Penn on us.
