GSP faced his fears by being in the expendables 6 and getting really fat.

in later GSP fights he was markedly worse at completing takedowns, because his shots weren't nearly as fast and he wasn't covering the same distance. he was getting takedowns stuffed by Nick Diaz, so he probably doesn't have a chance of taking down Bisping.

the fight before, which was i believe was before the knee surgery, he had like an 85% takedown percentage. also to take into account, the takedowns he completed against Diaz looked slower and shorter than i previous fights.

people keep calling st pierre old and fat but bisping is 38 and couldn't fight anyone this year because his old man knees are all hosed up. He also looked like trash against really old non-trt dan henderson.

Henderson has an inch on St. pierre and they are essentially the same size; both pretty small for middleweight.

hes the middleweight champion and hasnt been away from professional sport for 4-5 years. GSP is probably going to look like bj penn did vs yair

i think he will look better than BJ because he is more athletic, takes training seriously and was always in great shape from steroids. but i still think bisping takes the fight

The fight before was condit which was post surgery. The fight before that was shields and was pre surgery/injury, and gsp attempted 3 takedowns. He gassed his legs against diaz because diaz was threatening knee bars and gsp defended by leapfrogging over him repeatedly

gsp not fighting for 4-5 years still takes training more seriously than prime bj penn. I see this being far from a walkthrough.

Nick Diaz fought way outside his normal range though and GSP had to shoot from a million miles away.

Nick Diaz is smart and good and his strategy worked. Still got taken down a bunch though.

Bisping is going to do this too, though. And he’s harder to take down than Nick Diaz.

Yeah I'm not really making an argument for GSP, it's just that people were over sold on the idea of GSP being old and bad after fighting Nick.

I think the quality of athletes and fighting technique and strategy is just way better now and at the same time GSP dealt with aging and long layoffs.

I think it is entirely possible that this will be a plodding bad fight and Bisping wins with a late and underwhelming finish.

i mean with so many contenders in the wings that's the risk you have to take. gus will live to regret this.

also there is a staggering number of people that will be thinking 'wow, it looks like arguably the greatest fighter to have ever lived can be competitive with michael bisping'. not just win mind you. people are going to be genuinely surprised if it's competitive. lol. keven, you have wrought a thing of beauty in this forum.

4 years ago if GSP was fighting Bisping I'm sure GSP would have been the favourite. But since then Bisping has been KOed by Silva, nearly KOed by a 44 year old Henderson, and now it's an unfair matchup?

This absolutely does not excuse racism from Europeans. But that moment with Bisping didn't strike me as being "racist." Just horrifically rear end in a top hat-ish.

Someone made a crack about him being super white. He immediately threw a bottle at the closest non-white dude, assuming it was him. When the white guy who insulted him pipped up, Bisping had nothing to say. He was a complete poo poo bag, at best.
