Good to have him back. Log in to Reply theultimate fighter September 11, 2012 everyone cept rory mcdonald I guess I love how hes uncommital when talking about jones, guess its why the fans love him Log in to Reply southpawkillah September 11, 2012 interviewer was so horrible…..she sounded like she knew nothing about mma Log in to Reply victor September 11, 2012 for alot of fighters the weight issue is a big one i want to see the fight as much as anyone but i also understand his hesitation Log in to Reply failsonnen September 11, 2012 good guy Log in to Reply lowly September 11, 2012 5’7″, 145 5′ 9″, 155 5’11”, 170 6′ 2″,185 6’4″, 205 6’4″, 238 Dos Santos and Jones are the same height. That would be the best fight between champs. All the fights between champs are problematic for both fighters ‘though. The smaller guy is giving away the pounds and height, and the bigger fighter has to be concerned about losing to a smaller guy. Log in to Reply FedorFailsAgain September 11, 2012 GSP better not take Condit lightly, IMO he’s one of the most dangerous contenders to match up against George in quite a while. Win or lose from Condit I hope GSP gets to stomp out Diaz to silence the Diaz ball lickers out there. And a moment of silence to remember all those victims of the 911 False Flag terror attacks committed by factions of the U.S govt and Mossad agencies (cough* Operation North Woods *cough). Log in to Reply Roe Jogan September 11, 2012 The weight issue is real. Simple physics tells us that if two fists are thrown and one is holding a roll of quarters it will do more damage. Also, when grappling the heavier guy has the advantage if the skill is the same. Log in to Reply dr doom September 11, 2012 He’d do fine against Silva but with weight shifting and the fact he hasn’t been as dominant against larger fighters, I can see why he isn’t rushing into the fight. I also hope he’s prepared for Condit. It’s been a long time since his last fight and no matter how much he’s trained, there will definitely be some ring rust. Log in to Reply tonysnow September 11, 2012 war Condit, he would be a good champ Log in to Reply TheKungFuLowKick September 11, 2012 I don’t think the interviewer is the sharpest knife in the drawer…”One thing your fans admire the most about you is your ability to focus and get back in the Octagon”…Not really since GSP was never seriously injured yet,this is his first comeback so how the hell can he be known to focus well on comebacks???Sounds like a bunch of word she put in a sentence that sounds “MMA” but she has no clue of what she’s talking about. Log in to Reply axepittbull September 11, 2012 that building he’s in looks like an insane asylumn. depressing. Log in to Reply PitfighterZ September 11, 2012 I come from a time when size didn’t matter. Little Royce Gracies would beat giant Severns if they had enough time to do it. A time even before Gracie and Severn (yes, I’m old, I get it). However, nowadays these athletes like GSP and A. Silva are so freaking nearing the physical capacities of their bodies that any advantage becomes huge. That’s why Bones is so successful. He is as good as any other fighter, but he is taller and stronger than anyone else in the division. Silva is faster. GSP is more explosive and has more fluid transitions. Those little details now make legends because it makes them a little beyond what is possible for normal people. That’s why juicing makes such a freaking difference, but that’s a discussion for another thread. Log in to Reply Assapopalous420 September 11, 2012 That was one of the worst interviews ever. she was ****ing retarded. Log in to Reply D.B.S.HOMIE September 11, 2012 gsp looks alot thinner than before not so buff idk maybe just me Log in to Reply JJ September 11, 2012 @FedorFailsAgain – well said mate. On both accounts Log in to Reply mmafan400 September 11, 2012 lol let’s see how he does against condit before we go with the Anderson Silva talks. I mean this guy just got back from an ACL tear…he says he’s stronger, but so many athletes are never the same after that kind of injury. In any case, love hearing from this guy again, he’s the UFC’s poster boy, and for a good reason Log in to Reply peruvian necktie September 11, 2012 idk, GSP looked a lil scared when talking about fighting Anderson… Log in to Reply focusphere September 11, 2012 that interviewer was cute and asked great questions! she pressed gsp about the anderson fight, and he was clearly nervous and hesitant about answering the questions. he doesn’t want this fight. it’s pretty clear. and lol at talking about anderson fighting at 168, “a few years ago”. that was back in like 2004. Log in to Reply Kanu September 11, 2012 Saw GSP friday night, he was having dinner (yes that’s the advantage of living in Quebec hehehe). I am still amazed by how nice and genuinely humble he is… He even stopped to take a picture with me.. this being said he is right about focusing on his coming fight and not even thinking about the futur. It is showing respect to your opponent and also it is funneling your concentration and emotion instead of being all over the place….He is absolutely right about the impact that changing categories has on your efficiency…few exemples : Roy Jones, Antonio Tarver, James Toney…..Fact is that weight, lenght (reach), height are a factor !!!… I wish Silva was the same height than GSP …that would have been an amazing fight…and by the way I am a fan of both. I have to say that even at 174 or catch up weight, Silva still has a huge reach advantage..just like Jon Jones over all his opponents. Dont get me wrong he deserves the victories and is amazingly skilled (it hurt to say it)…nonetheless his height therefore reach is an advantage !!!… Log in to Reply AussieMMA September 12, 2012 Of course he’s hesitant! He has a lot to lose. Endorsements, marketability, popularity etc. It really highlights how much of a gamble BJ took when he fought Hughes at 170 years ago. I don’t blame GSP for wanting to milk the division before putting it all on the line for a shot at Silva. Which could be a great fight if Silva came down to 170. But at a catch weight, I can only see Silva winning. Log in to Reply JNA September 12, 2012 GSP, put yourself up to the challenge and move up weight. If BJ can do it, so can you….. Log in to Reply dave September 12, 2012 first the interviewer girl sucks sooo bad. second the couch potatoes who are asking why isn’t gsp just jump and go to 180lb who haven’t trained a day don’t know **** all about training. someone who has trained and is not fat actually knows how difficult that is for a very fit guy to move up or down properly. anderson easily has 30 to 35 pounds over GSP, I can understand him not going up wight. I wouldn’t if I was him. Log in to Reply dave September 12, 2012 @tonysnow are you kidding me condit would be a “great champ”?? or a a champ on the run? meek meek Fast runner! I lost all respect for the guy because of the way he fought. now imagine him a champion?? he woudln’t fight at all, he’ll probably run the hole fight. Log in to Reply TheGuyInTheBack September 12, 2012 Never really taken to GSP. Great fighter but his constant reluctance to come out of his comfort zone makes him dull in my opinion. Silva has moved up and so has Penn. His legacy and bank balance is already cemented so i find it difficult to understand why he doesnt want to try something new against possibly the best striker ever to grace the UFC. Well hopefully the beast that is Condit gives him a run for his money. Log in to Reply keulniss September 12, 2012 @Kanu, Silva still has a HUGE reach advantage??? You are mistaken, he only has a 1.6 inch reach advantage, hardly “huge”. He does however have a slight reach advantage, and a height advantage. But this could easily be negated by his much better wrestling. I think 177.5 lbs catch weight would be most fair, split it down the middle. Log in to Reply truth September 12, 2012 *************MARK MY WORDS *************** GSP will get “hurt” before the carlos condit fight and will drop out and retire…. because he knows he will lose next time hes in the octagon …. and if he loses then all the fame of the great gsp will go into the ground…. and all he cares about is fame and fortune… hes talking this superfight bs because he hasnt been in the lime light for a long time and he misses the fame…. hes gonna bs us all the way to a few weeks before the condit fight “hurt his knee” … and retire “the great gsp”/// Log in to Reply truth September 12, 2012 kungfulowkick …. he has been injured in ALL HIS LAST FIGHT FOR YEARS!? everytime i see you write something its just ridiculous how little you know about mma Log in to Reply pillowhands September 12, 2012 He’s STILL scared of fighting Spider. Dana is pushing him to fight becuz the public wants it but deep down GSP is shittin bricks. Poor guy is in fear of Spider but everyone keeps pushing him to fight eventho he knows he’ll get beat up bad and tarnish his legacy. No 5rds of dry humpin here, you’ll have to standup and actually fight someone with MUCH superior striking/ jitz skillz.haha G eorges S afe P ierre Log in to Reply pillowhands September 12, 2012 In 2004 BJ Penn steps up in div (first fight back in the ufc) and fights Matt Hughes. In 2005 Penn steps up and fights Lyoto Machida @ LH. Some ufc fighters are true warriors and love the challenge of fighting out of their comfort zone even if there’s a huge chance of a loss. Penn, Couture, Spider. Hell I even give respect to (gulp*)Sonnen and Jake Sheilds for stepping up to fight in a higher div against very dangerous opponents. GSP is the Flyod Mayweather of the ufc. Picking the easiest path of fights in order to keep the loss’s down. In other words chicken-shit fighters. GSP’s forula in every fight = dry hump opponents for 5rds without hurting/subbing him and ekk out points win. Borrrrring Log in to Reply pillowhands September 12, 2012 Lol, after his career in the ufc is over Georges should get into politics…. He’s a natural and avoiding questions and backpedaling around answers. Smoke & mirrors type of avoiding questions. “the glass is half full” “if a tree falls in the woods” type of crap. This guy could go far in politics. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
