We’ll never see either of those guys fight GSP at 170. I don’t think either is a competitive fight for GSP, even as he’s getting older.

Technically, GSP is still the lineal MW champion, right? What if he came back to fight at MW instead of WW/LW. How would him vs. Adesanya play out? It's just not his style to fight either Romero or Costa, but I actually think he would have a shot stylistically vs Israel.


The length with Izzy would be a major question mark. I also question GSP's conditioning at MW as well. I definitely agree that Izzy hasn't come close to fighting a MMA grappler on the level of GSP, but no way do I see GSP going back up in weight to fight a guy the size of Izzy. I think there are only 2 possible fights for GSP left, Khabib or Conor.

GSP would crush both those guys quite easily IMO.


Crush both Khabib and Conor?

Conor I say he beats him easily with ground and pound. Khabib I really dont know. Prime GSP? Without a doubt I would pick GSP. But I dont know how much he has dropped with his age and how well he would handle the cut (even though he does look leaner than ever now). Khabib has never faced an offensive grappler on the level of prime GSP. He would take down and pass guard of Wrestling All Americans with ease. I also think his jab and whatever gameplay him and zahabi would come up with would be hard to beat.

My dream scenario for this year would be this.

Conor fights and beats Cowboy (even though I would love to see Cowboy win and call it quits)
Khabib fights and beats Tony (even though personally I would love to see Tony win)
Conor fights GSP
Khabib fights Gaethje

The winner of Conor vs GSP fights the winner of Khabib/Gaethje. Then let 2 of the trio of losers fight each other. There you go Dana, I just gave you the perfect Money/Fan fights for the year for 155/170.

If GSP is even 80% of the speed he was at vs Bisping, he’ll beat Khabib’s face in until he panic wrestles.

Prime GSP would wreck Khabib but current GSP who's a little slower and a little less athletic, hard to know for sure but I'm still confident he'd beat Khabib. Only way GSP loses is if he gets clip by a HEAVY puncher and Khabib doesn't exactly have good stand up or does he have some special power.

Lebron - Zion, Barrett like Melo, wade like Culver, garland like tj ford, hunter like bosh, white like Barbosa, Clarke like David West. I think this draft is actually going to be deeper though

God damn, Ryan Hall still can't get a fight. He's fought three times since 2015. Without a fight since July last year, none in the foreseeable.

“Never thought I’d have to go this route, but then again, I also never imagined a laundry list of ranked professional tough guys turning down a fight with a skinny, blinky kid from the suburbs,” Hall wrote.


LOL.

Also, calling out Edgar and Aldo, two very tough stylistic matchups for him.

Seen guys try to wrestle the ref when they are TKO'd, but this ONE guy went for the kneebar. Could have been bad.

I just discovered that Bisping has a fake eye. Somehow I missed that news. Not really a big deal at this point, but seeing him take it out of his head was shocking enough that I needed to say something about it.

...And other Dem candidate supporters arerailroading Bernie for "accepting" it, claiming Rogan is anti-LGBTG. Christ. I have had to reveal myself as a Rogan fan IRL (a very leftie IRL) in order to insist that Joe really isn't that bad. Rogan himself as earnest and good hearted, IMO. Prolly going to lose my career defending Joe "No Safe Spaces" Rogan against accusations of homophobia. Awesome.

Don't want to get to political here, but from my POV there's certainly some issues with Rogan. But the whole idea of running for office is to get people to vote for you, including people with major differences from you if you can.

Exactly. Bernie is running for the nomination to convince people he can get votes. And they want him to do this...by paring down support to only a select few unimpeachable people.

Rogan is tough to read. His opinions blow in the wind and, more importantly, between guests of the podcast.

He's claimed himself libertarian before but is now endorsing Bernie.

Maybe people's ideals are rooted in less these days or Bernie has an ability to get ideas explained in a way that converts people over?
