Let's say GSP retires from MMA after the Silva fight...

Will you take the WW division championship seriously without him?
Especially if the champion will be a guy whom GSP had beaten. And this would for sure happen.

I hope that GSP retires only afer having gathered a couple of losses. Because if he leaves as a dominant champion, I will not care for the WW belt.
Will you?

    what bluesy said
    I see rory coming to the top once GSP is gone, and they've already stated they wouldn't fight each

    I forsee Ellenberger, Condit, or Rory holding on to the strap and when Page comes over then **** gets real

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

    Greg - "It's, about.. WAR! You understand me?! You bounce, you move and you punish this kid. This is 5 minutes of war, now you go and give it to me!"
    Condit- *Aye aye coach; say no more*

    Without GSP I don't see anyone holding the strap longer then 2 defences at most with Rory or Maia having the longest

    The best will be swapped around much like how LHW was be4 Jones

    Maia
    Rory
    Ellenburger
    Alves (now that the grinder are gone)
    Big Rigg

    As the top 5 holding the belt
    Sig record
    40-21

    What do you get when you take A.Silva's clinch game + Mark Hunt's Iron Chin + Mushy Lady Parts?

    It's a stacked division full of talent. Georges leaving doesn't change that. If anything, it would probably become even more exciting.

    I think the plan is for Rory to take over his spot, anyway. I could see it happening easily and he wouldn't be just some GSP victim -- but a successor.


    no chance rory would hold the title, if penn can get a takedown on rory then imagine what maia would do to him, if he got tkod in a 3 round fight with condit then imagine 5 rounds if he cant get hendricks down i can see him eating a hendricks bomb.


    imo the challengers for the title in order of likely hood of winning it are obviously

    maia
    condit
    hendricks
    rory
    ellenberger
    marquadt
    saffadine

    Ellenberger will be the next WW champ. Believe that.

    Im thinking Hendricks knocks George out, George retires, and Johny defends it until he retires or maybe loses it to Matt Brown.

    I am a huge GSP fan and YES i would take it seriously.The reason is simple,GSP has not really evolved at all,so no way a guy should remain at the top forever,without improving his game.So to make it simple,more rounded fighters will have a chance to be the champion and it would have been inevitable anyhow.I figure GSP is 100% 1-2 fights away from losing,maybe he loses both his next two fights.

    His desire to get better is gone and he does not imo carry enough hunger or aggression in the ring.
    What GSP has done is near impossible,he fights 5 rounds every time,he uses a massive amount of cardio in all his fights.The way he fights he gives every opponent the full 5 rounds to figure him out or adjust,nobody else gives their opponents that kind of chance.So time is not on his side,it is actually a good time to get out now,while he is on top.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    WW is STACKED with talented fighters, so I would look for another WW to repeatedly defend his title when GSP vacates.

    If GSP left then it would be interesting to see who would step up to seize the belt. I honetly wouldn't mind if he retired after fighting either Hendricks or Silva, make the WW title picture crazy.
    Bet Record: 2-3

    LOL, what does it say about all those guys who couldn't beat him? They all got beaten by an unevolved GSP.
