What would be best for GSP at this point in his career.

AXEINGARAXEINGAR Posts: 146Free
Strait to the point. He is nowhere near finished physically and he is beyond talented. What GSP needs though is to be dethroned. He needs to lose a fight against a less talented fighter who is hungry just to remind him what being hungry can do for a person. If that doesn't completely brake his spirit and he wants to continue to be a martial artist he will realize that he must be hungry again. He has got comfortable in the sense that he can do the minimal to just get by. GSP needs a wake up call.

I bet he didn't train near as hard for this camp based on his level of cardio. I remember Zahabi saying before the Shields fight I believe it was that GSP's cardio is so good that he can be fully recovered in 30 seconds. He was gassed by the end of the 3rd. Nowhere near the cardio we expect from any WW champ. It's a shame that one of the P4P greatest ever will not achieve his dream of being the greatest Mix Martial Artist ever because he has allowed his belly to become full of past glory, fattening him and slowing him. He has gotten mentally soft.

The dude is 32 years old. He has enough time to be dethroned and rise again. But he is going to have to want to rise again.

    The current GSP we witnessed sat night wouldn't stand a chance against Silva. And I want Silva beat.

    Well, thats the only thing he needs to do IMO to improve his legacy. He has beaten everyone at WW, even if people are not impressed by his performances, so the next step is SIlva.

    if not, then carry on as he is and decision more WW's

    He needs to go out and knock Hendricks out in the first 10 seconds then beat Silva. In the fans eyes he's not leaving anymore of a legacy then any other dominant champion.

    Although I can't even imagine how many people would hate GSP if he went out and LnP'd Silva for 5 rounds to victory.

    I agree and I would also add that - win or lose, GSP should retire before the new breed catches up to him. I hate to see champions get crushed at the end of their careers which has happened all too many times.

    If he goes out there and dominates Hendricks and looks back to his best i would like to see him fight Silva but if he looks like he did against Diaz then no way as there isn't a chance in hell it's even a competitive fight.

    Best thing GSP could do is just do what he's been doing and not take ANY advice from this forum. No offense to OP, but just in general

    I am an idiot for thinking GSP could finish the P4P GOAT Nick Diaz within 5 rounds

    Since i have watched him for several years and frustrate the heck out of me,i would say his camps have been total garbage.
    Best thing would be to visit me,he needs someone to teach him or at least tell him what he is lacking or doing wrong.

    Firas is NOT a wrestler and Jackson was nothing more than a Psychologist type.GSP's strength has been his TD's,he needed more work to advance that skill set,but has learned nothing at all.GSP is also not a wrestler,he is nothing more than a TD specialist and that is because his leg strength and driving power and of course helps when the opponent is coming at him.

    There is of course always a fine line,if GSP's stand up was much better including kicks and counters,fighters might not come at him as much,therefor taking away his TD's.,his best strength.That is why he needs a better ground game,he is using all cardio and power,almost NEVER uses any technique.
