    I can vote for mighty mouse , wrecked a
    Olympic gold medalist (the best gap faced was an NCAA championship)
    , arm barred a Brazilian brown belt world bjj champ who has never been submitted, twice beat probably the most athletic fighter in mma,
    not to mention Benavidez twice, Torres , Cruz ,
    Yamamoto all destroyed by him in various different ways.

    A guy gsp himself called the best of our generation.

    You could. He lost to Cruz though. He's also very wary about moving up a weight class. He's cleared out his division and now he's facing second rate competition. Perhaps he's just that God that he makes everyone look bad in comparison.

    Everyone is weary of moving up a weight class

    tj is offering to come down a class not move up to fight Connor or another monster who will outweigh him by 40 odd pounds come fight night.

    in his prime gsp never moved up to fight Silva, Jones has never fought heavyweight they tend to cut and move down a class, I'm sure mighty mouse would have gone down a class if he could lol

    And he did fight at bantamweight for several years before moving to his natural weight class, and in doing so beat one of the best of all time at that class in Torres and has freely admitted he cuts 10 pounds to fight at his current weight to fight bantamweight he basically has to take his shoes off and he would make weight any day of the week, he isn't a big guy cutting massive weight.

    Usually when guys move up a class it's because the weight cut wreaks them, or because they are on al losingg streak neither apply to him .

    Or like Connor on for massive money...

    If you look at how good Cejudo has looked before and since DJ, or what Dodson was doing to people before ,during their two fights, and after their last fight you can see DJ really does make good fighters look that bad

    What are the chances St. Pierre fights Mcgregor one day ?
    That's one I'd love to see.

    I'm not that informed on all the weight class permutatations with the competitors.
    I guess St. Pierre would come down in w/class for that one ?

    Seems do able, or am I wrong. Surely that's the MMA mega fight right there..

    St. Pierre is twice McGregor's size now; Conor would be taken down and elbowed to pieces inside a round. None of that means the UFC isn't dumb enough to make the fight, of course.

    GSP has said he can make 155 in the past. I'd like to see that. I don't think he'd hold the middle won't belt for long and I think he loses to Wonderboy and Woodley. At 155 he could do damage though.

    I honestly don't think there's a superfight out there worth the money it would take to set it up, there's no Anderson in his prime or gsp in his prime dominating their respective divisions that everyone wants to see.

    Only champ whose is dominating his division wants 2 million to move up and fight a guy who has only just won his belt back... Neither of whom the fans seem to be clammering to put there money on

    Add to that does Conor really want to fight again with the money he made for that boxing exhibition match? Or put another way do the fighting Irish have enough money to tempt him back in the cage lol

    Even if they did the gsp we saw at the weekend is never making 155 pounds, not at 36 and with 4 years off
