    GSP has the most overrated resume in MMA history filled with one dimensional fighters and natural LWs.

    His best wins?

    DC,
    Shogun,
    Rashad,
    Vitor,
    Rampage,
    Machida.

    Last I checked, all former or current UFC champions and several names here on the GOAT lists..

    Oh and a couple of other guys...

    Glover Teixeria, Gustafsson and Bader.

    He beat all guys with ease, only time he even came close to losing was against early stage TRT Vitor on super short notice and that war with Alex...but Jon drank heavily before that fight.

    GSP is the GOAT. No question of that. Fedor is a close second then A. Silva.

    GSP and Fedor are tied for the GOAT with A. Silva and J. Jones tied for 2nd

    Not only did he beat and dominate most of his opponents, he did it while using their same strengths against them...



    Who else has done this? None that I can think of.

    I'm honestly fine with someone calling GSP the GOAT. Personally I think that title belongs to Jon Jones, simply because of the competition he's faced, and more often than not destroyed.

    It's such a shame he can't keep his personal life in order.

    Are you kinda stupid, or are you REALLY stupid. Jones defeats all A-list fighters since Shogun, effortlessly, except for the Gus fight. GSP got KTFO by the midget Serra. If we use your logic, we'll hand the GOAT crown to all the undefeated fighters. There's a reason (56-5) Ali will always be greater than (49-0) Mayweather. GSP has zero highlight reel, made MMA boring as fu*k. Silva, Jones, Fedor, they all took the sport to another level. GSP was great with the fundamentals and nothing else, which is why he holds the record for most decision win in UFC history. He never met a top-tier he could KO.

    I forgot he KOed Hardy, Diaz, Condit, and tapped Shields out

    He fought where his opponent was weakest

    Edit: i think GSP is the GOAT, just disagree with ur comment

    Jones needs PEDs to eyepoke his way to victory over past-prime fighters half his size. No expert takes him seriously on any level

    Because of nostalgia? Mayweather has the best accuracy to defense numbers in boxing history. Undefeated. Mayweather is the best boxer ever from a technical standpoint

    In my opinion MMA is a sport and just like any other sport defense matters. Nobody is better at shutting down an opponents offense than GSP, he won how many rounds in a row at one point? It was alot

    Because this is predicated on people GIVING you the rematch to start with.

    Fedor wasn't granted rematches during the time and GSP only fought in the safe, protected UFC.

    If he fought in multiple orgs, he would have lost again, long ago.

    GSP also left right as USADA came in and now wants to come back at 155. How interesting.

    That's fine to disagree...

    You're entitled to your own opinions.

    I'm just saying the fact that he did it to a bunch of opponents is crazy in and of itself - you can't possibly expect him to do that to every single opponent.
