Despite the controversial decision, GSP did get the win. And Hendricks was the greatest threat to his belt (and still is).
You can talk about 70% blah blah blah, but GSP didn't get KO'd, he stood with Hendricks, was able to match his wrestling and take him down three times compared to Johny's two, which by the way GSP has still not been taken down three times in a fight.
Anderson Silva (the p4p great for many years) greatest threat was Chris Weidman. And he got KTFO by him. GSP's greatest threat was Hendricks, and he technically beat him and they were FOTN.
That being said, he's now defended his belt 9 straight times. He surpasses (or should) Anderson on the p4p list with that win, so is he the #1 p4p fighter now? Or is it Jones? Or Aldo?
IMO GSP could be #1 now. ***Just so we are clear,*** read this closely GSP haters for clarification, I thought Johny won the fight, all I am saying is that since GSP technically won, that should propel him in the ranks. So is he #1 now? If you think the win aspect doesn't matter, losers don't get win bonuses; they don't get that extra money. Do you think Rory MacDonald got extra money for his loss? No.Hendricks was probably awarded a win bonus though, at least I think Dana would give him one.
Alright if you managed to read all this without immediately raging please try to have reasonable, logical responses. Thanx.
