I never claimed that GSP was a bad fighter. He's a great fighter. However, claiming that he's the greatest ever is a little premature at this point. That's all I'm saying.
who claimed he is the greatest ever ?
it wasn't me if thats what you are trying to say,
GSP is a very very good fighter and maybe some day he will be considered as the greatest WW that ever fought in the UFC or maybe not, only time will tell,
in my opinion Matt is still the greatest WW of all time and will be for some time to come but someday GSP or some other fighter will dethrone him
that is just a fact of life in any sport i'm afraid and right now it looks like GSP has a legitimate shot at becoming the best WW ever but even if he does do it that time is a long long way off yet.
