if this was ten years ago, id pick gsp confidently

even right after splitting with hendricks, id pick him

unless bisping blows him out by being better prepared and just too big and powerful, gsp is going to find a way to win some rounds, i think. Dont really see GSP having a conditioning advantage and that was one of the things that diminished his dominance at ww, when his conditioning was a little less. Bisping seems to punch better nowadays. I'm not sure if gsp can jab away with impunity like he might have been able to at his peak speed. wouldn't be surprised to see either guy narrowly outstrike the other for 5

Bisping is craftier on the feet and will easily win, unless GSP figured out how to do more than jab at range. He's not going to have the reach to be able to force Bisping to the outside, and he's probably not going to have an easy time taking him down if he can even manage it.

GSP read the new rules about cumming and practiced his "I try vary ard to finish im" speech Travis Bickle style for 6 months in lieu of a training camp

GSP got mind hosed by the heavy hands of the four foot tall anthropomorphic turtle, Matt Serra.

Okay okay okay

I finally watched Joanna’s open workout

She produces more power than anyone I’ve ever seen close to her size except maybe for Bruce loving Lee and she seems to be getting better. She’s special. I love Rose to death and hope I’m wrong but that fight is going to be brutal.

Her moving to ATT seems to have really upped her game compared to being at a much smaller gym back in Poland.

GSP actually had more stand up than just jab until he lost to Matt Serra. He use to really use his kickboxing and karate strikes. Lots of kicks and even punches other than the jab. After the Serra loss he basically became ultra secure and just grinded out wins.

Bisping has gotten better every year since GSP has gone so ya if GSP can't lay n pray him it should be a solid Bisping victory maybe a TKO.

Joanna has shown some weakness on the ground in the past, and Rose loves to jump on that RNC. I don't know if its a live enough bet, but I might go for it.

Someone or some combo of people there definitely figured out how to tighten up her entire skill set. I haven’t watched the embedded but I’m sure there’s good stuff in those. As far as I can tell she’s as good mentally as she is physically so a loss wouldn’t likely see her Rondaing but rather coming back 10x more focused.

I’m glad the general mma fans are catching on and talking about her more. Where she lacks in her English and typical charisma she comes through being scary as poo poo.

If she’s going to drop one to anyone though Rose is my #1 preference tbh

She's been taken down by an excellent well-rounded fighter in Gadelha who is huge and strong and is a good wrestler and good grappler and hits hard for the division.

I agree gsp will have a hard time taking him down, but unless by crafty on the feet you mean he eye pokes and throws illegal knees im not sure i agree
