GSP is finally coming back to UFC
Some fun MMA news before the weekend that the deal is finalized between George St-Pierre and the UFC. So finally making his long awaited comeback having not fought since 2013. The UFC really needed this one for a boast. There hasn’t been really any super exciting fights for the casual fan to watch. I’ll watch every fight they have on. It doesn’t matter to me who it is but for normal people having Travis Browne and Derrick Lewis headline a fight won’t put butts in seats.
Getting GSP back will do just that. He will be I’m guessing get one tune up fight before going after the championship. Who would that fight be against? We seem to forget that this picture above was after the Johny Hendricks fight. He got his ass kicked the whole fight and still won the decision. He got beat up so bad that he hasn’t fought in over 4 years. That was UFC 167. Since then Johny has taken a back seat to some absolute killers at 170 assuming GSP is going to go back there. Tyrone Woodley is killing GSP right now and so is wonderboy. If you keep him in the division for me you put him right infront of Cowboy Cerrone. That is the opening fight that would put butts in seats but if they are trying to get this guy back at champion that might not be a great move. Donald Cerrone is such a killer at 170.
Then what do you do maybe a superfight. Do you put two old guys together? GSP vs Anderson Silva finally maybe use that as a tune up fight for him to fight Bisbing. Just think about if they do put him in Middleweight. How do you think this guy would fare against Yoel Romero. Does anyone want to see that ass kicking? I know I would. I think that UFC needs to come to grips right now they have a marketing problem. Your bell cow is trying to Box and you don’t have anybody really else besides Bones Jones that can move the needle. But GSP is 35 yrs old. I’m not sure what this guy has left in the tank overall but I’m sure excited to see the car crash.
