Sadly there doesn't exist any video of the most important moments in his career: all his childhood bullying and throwing that brick in the loving river

What about him throwing a brick in the river?

Only three things excite him; a woman, of course, dinosaurs and the violence of the octagon.

And the first one isn't a distraction for him, I promise you.

I remember one scene in GSPs TUF against Koschek where Kos parked his car too close to the driver side of GSP's so it would be difficult for GSP to get in and drive off for lunch. poo poo really hits home

he developed a devastating jab when only like 6 people in the ufc used one. also after his first loss to huges he decided that he should be the best wrestler in mma and then did that.

There's an amazing nate quarry quote where he's telling this reporter how he's always learning and improving, and in fact he just learned you can throw out jabs with no intention of connecting with them as a distraction of sorts. Anyways nate was ten years into the fight game by then and those were the kind of guys gsp was facing in his prime.

GSP fought plenty of guys who could strike.

Its not like he learned some real basic things and then used it to beat up some schlubs. He knew how to box, he trained with freddie roach regularly.

He wrestled guys who could strike and jabbed guys who could grapple.

Notable exceptions:
Maybe failing to wrestle hendricks. Taking BJ to the ground the second time might have been daring on paper but it's hard to argue with the results.

I consider his loss to serra to be a turning point in his career and didn't look before then.

In broad strokes, yes.

However he still spent plenty of time on thw feet with essentailly everyone he fought and was in trouble exactly twice (serra and condit).

Watch him jab the poo poo out of Nick Diaz or box up Carlos Condit. Alves never really did anything to him either and he was on a tear of juat wrecking dudes at that time

GSP improved so much, he has gained the ability to drain the life force from Hendricks. As proven by Hendricks last 3 fights.

Or it could just be USADA....

He took 70% of Hendricks' lifeforce. His last few fights have been the 30%

no they werent, quarry was a dummy. The guys GSP faced in his prime were BJ, Hughes, Koscheck, Serra,, Thiago Alves, Jon Fitch. Not dummies who don't know you can feint, which i learned in kids karate class. Of those Hughes and Koscheck didn't know anything about striking, but the others were no joke. NAte Quarry is a legendary retard and has nothing to do with GSP

He was an absolute beast, dominating all levels of competition, except for a basic mistake against Hughes. He obliterated Sherk on the feet. Mushed Karo.

Also GSP whooped an olympic wrestler in 2001 adcc. Hes different.

turns out that the entire welterweight division was Always Bad even though it was the best division in the UFC for like a decade and GSP's domination of it makes him at worst tied for greatest ever

I love your JT gimmick, but I wish you'd just loving drop this one. It doesn't matter at all what a guy's sexual preference is. It's none of ours or anyone else's business. Second, you come across as a homophobic rear end in a top hat constantly dropping jabs at someone because they might like a dick. It's tired and it isn't funny. Please stop with this.

I'm fine with someone making a funny joke. The zoom out joke was good.

What isn't funny is every single time GSP gets brought up, willie has to come in and hurl some baseless insinuation and then act like he has some journalistic duty to maintain his source's anonymity. Fatherdog even told him to knock the poo poo off once. It's never been funny or entertaining and is just done to stir up poo poo. It contributes nothing whatsoever to conversation.

willie's gsp = gay thing has gone on for so long now it's like the sideshow bob rake scene. also unless i'm missing something, willie never attaches any positive or negative connotations to gsp being gay, so it seems like a really weird thing to get angry about.

If there were no negative connotations to it then it wouldn't be noteworthy whatsoever to him.

i was at a pool party in downtown la and got talking to this guy who after about 2000 mimosas told me in confidence that he'd hosed keanu reeves. i didn't find that interesting because i hate gays, but because i thought keanu was straight.

Yeah the way he clings onto it like a particularly tenacious chihuahua clings onto their mom's favourite dildo they found under the bed allows you to infer a hell of a lot about his mindset while he's casting the aspersions. He literally brings it up any time GSP is mentioned.

But then you'd also say "some guy at a pool party in downtown LA told me Keanu was gay" and not spend the next 5 years every time Keanu was brought up acting like you're some super sleuth with speed dial to all his previous lovers and constantly jab at another person's sexual preference.

ok but maybe consider that willie's doing it because it's his schtick and not because he can't find an easier way to let everyone know he hates gays than a 5 year long running joke
