GSP is the ONLY fighter with personal issues !!!

... right ?

I think it was kind of "cheap" how he claims to have personal issues as a reason to simply take a break and vacate the title, sorry.

As Hendricks said, everybody got problems and personal matters that will often hold you back in life but that doesnt mean you gonna quit !

Can you imagine if we were to quit our jobs, ask for a break, because we got personal matters at home ?!

If he would lose a fight due to his lack of focus based on these "personal issues" that would be totally acceptable.

In my opinion, GSP might have personal issues going on BUT he also got some other issues like: Hendricks rematch, Brown, Condit 2, Woodley and Lawlor .. thats right .. old days where he would defend his legacy against Kosh, Alves and Hardy ARE OVER !

Its almost as if he will work on whatever is going on on his life BUT ALSO wait for things to "cool down" among the WW top contenders. Time to study all these new upcomers and wait for them to fight among themselves and perhaps wait for some of them to be less hungry. GSP saw that his legacy was in jeopardy when he fought Hendricks and on the back of his head, he knew (and he knows) things will only get worst !

Thoughts ?!

    I think he has also been questioning his sexuality a lot lately and it has been taking a toll on his training camps, sleep schedule, and his sphincter

    Funny how haters rag on GSP every chance they get. Then when he leaves they cry even more. Rhonda and Silva both said they agree with GSP. Hendricks has never been champ, certainly not for 6 years so how would he know what its like. My thoughts? Haters are MASSIVELY butt hurt they didn't see GSP get ko'ed before leaving.

    So your point is that if a fighter (a champion per say) thinks he is about to get KOd he should quit the sport ?

    Did you even read any of the pressers? What does ^ question have to do with anything related? GSP left because of stress. If he doesn't want to fight anymore than him leaving was the right choice.

    GSP is single and has never had to deal with a wife. He doesn't have any children either.

    He doesn't know what stress is with his millions of dollars.

    Defend to the death!

    "If he would lose a fight due to his lack of focus based on these "personal issues" that would be totally acceptable"

    Wrong. That explanation would not have been accepted by the MMA troglodyte community. They would simply say he got exposed, KTFO, you know the routine.
    He isn't in a mind set where he feels he can fight to the best of his ability. Who are we to tell him to fight on?

    You guys act like he didnt work for his money, the guy dedicated his life to this. Also Hendricks can GTFO, he did better than anyone in years against GSP and lost a close decision but he will he be a welterweight GOAT like GSP? We will see.

    Good luck to GSP and hope to see him again in the UFC when the time is right. He isn't your slave you blood hungry ****. :D

    I think GSP should have just retired out right. But kudos to him for vacating and not holding on to it.

    If he doesn't want to fight he did the right thing I won't fault him for that.
  • jdukjduk Posts: 8,284Free
    He did the right thing, he didn't want to fight, so he walked, if he wants to come back in a year or two, there'll be some great fights waiting for him in what will be a totally different division

    GSP out of anyone else in the whole sport os MMA has NOTHING more to prove. He has been champ for 8 straight years fighting the top guys every fight and Dominating them . He is always under a lot of pressure. He deserves to take a break/ retire. Everyone thinks he's taking a break because he's "scared" of certain rematches. How about putting yourself in his shoes for 8 years and then tell me how you feel. That's right, you can't.

    He wasn't champ for eight years.

    Can you imagine if we were to quit our jobs, ask for a break, because we got personal matters at home?

    The only thing preventing most people from doing just that is not having enough money; GSP is a millionaire, so that's a pretty stupid comment. I don't think there is anything "cheap" or wrong with him quitting. Like he said, it's his right to do whatever he pleases, & he doesn't owe anyone anything (except perhaps Hendricks out of of respect for a fellow fighter).

    That said, as a fan, it is a bit disappointing considering his reason compared to what most people have to go through just to earn a living, not to mention scrounging around out enough money to buy PPV's, etc, to make what he does for a living even possible in the first place.

    His job probably is extremely stressful, but it's not the same kind of stress most people have. It's not the type of stress that would cause him any worry at all: real stress. He doesn't have to worry about supporting a wife, children, or even himself; he's already got it made..

    But people should keep in mind, he isn't just complaining about the stress or pressure itself, but in how it's effecting him. Since he obviously has some issues he needs to sort out, & owes no one anything, he was absolutely right to step away for a while.

    He also stayed classy & CHOSE to vacate the belt & not hold anyone else back. Dana White even said that GSP & GSP alone made the choice to vacate it & provide the opportunity for people like Hendricks, et al, to accomplish what he has. Very classy, in typical GSP fashion.

    GSP does not need a single excuse to retire/quit or take a break,it is his RIGHT to do what ever the heck he wants.It is none of Dana's business or any fans or the UFC.
