Seems to be a very possible reality. Doesn't make sense how he never would fight Anderson Silva at 185 in his prime because he is "too big" and now, he comes back for this fight.

Everyone's truly thinking Bisping is beatable easily.

Not a fan of GSP's boring, predictable, fighting style.  Round 1:  Jab!... Jab!...Jab!  Ding!  Round 2: Jab!... Jab!... Jab!  Ding!  And so on, all the way to a Judges decision.  I like aggressive fighters with a killer instinct, who fight to end fights, not coast along 5 rounds, ultimately going to the judges decision each fight like GSP does.

GSPs strategy is almost exactly what you mentioned, with takedowns and blanket smothering more or less for the remainder.

Recall the days GSP actually lived up to his nickname?

This is bullshit.  GSP was shot when he retired a couple years ago.  Was VERY lucky to get the benefit of the doubt in his last two victories.
While I don't hate Bisping as so many do, this is turning into some McGregor type UFC bullshit favoritism.

Since the UFC sold to WME from Zuffa, it seems to be all about the money fights, popular names, and interim champions.

Some hybrid WWE MMA event..

this is not a good matchup for george  michael bisping is alot bigger and will have a huge height and reach advantage not to mention he has decent td defence,

GSP has a half inch reach advantage.

Bisping is only a couple inches taller.

The weight difference might play a role, but GSP walks around right near 185

UFC should have required McGregor to fight GSP before any talks of Floyd Mayweather

Cant stand gsp's fighting style. Should've lost to Hendricks. Havent seen many fights, much less title fights that were as blatantly one-sided as that one... And im not even a Hendricks fan (his lack of discipline in making weight bothers me... Plus dude needs a haircut. He looks like a homeless alcoholic. Just shave it).

2 years ago i wouldve said give Hendricks a shot at gsp atn185 for GSPs first fight coming back, but hendricks has  since kinda fallen off.

Maybe id rather see gsp-wonderboy, since their styles are a lil similar (striking wise at least... Havent really seen wonderboy lay-n-pray like gsp though). Woodley-gsp migjt be good, but i cant stand woodley with his " poor me/ufc is racist" bullshit. If i were dana, id shelf him or give him low draw opponents and pay him 30% less than he thinks hes worth.

I also cant stand bisping. Nothing stands out to me striking-wise (or grappling/sub wise, for that matter)... But it's his attitude that really turns me away. Not many fighters make me hope they get embarrased as much as bisping does. (woodley, jamie varner, faber, derrik lewis, crazy horse bennet, & anderson silva all come to mind).

... That being said, ppl are saying gsp's ground game/wrestling/subs have really really improved.

Still won't even bother watching a free live-stream of the figjt.

if gsp can reclaim the level fighting that he had when he beat john fitch, he could beat anyone at 170

Doubt it.  Sport and the athletes have evolved too much since those days.

Doesn't GSP still train with all the top contenders at Tristar?

GH P can beat Bisping. That's why the fight is happening. If he wins it will be laying all over him and hyped to hell, not the way Henderson did it.

Something you need to understand is that GSP does not stand still and do nothing. He's obsessed. When he was nobody, he took Greyhound from Montreal to New York (9 hours each way) on weekends to train with the best.  Normal person does not do that. Only the best is good enough for GSP. I can assure you he has studied the sport in the last 3 years and adapted. His come back is not going to be a half assed money grabbing come back. No way.

I'm sure he'll put forth the utmost effort but IMO his best days were behind him 3 years ago and nobody beats father time.

GSP is 35. Current champ ages:

Stipe 34
Cormier 37
Bisping 38
Woodley 34
Conor 28
Aldo 30
Garbrandt 25
Johnson 30

Doesn't seem to old to me just yet. He's also always been super athletic, not an "old guy". We'll see.
