    I agree, without a doubt he will say it. Dana almost never keeps his words on things like this.

    People tend to use the Paul Daley example as a time that he stuck to his word but that doesn't count for me being that Daley lost multiple times after being cut. Had he gone a tear and was being considered one of the best WW in the world he would definitely be in the UFC right now.

    Was speaking hypotheticly and didn't mean to make it sound that way.

    GSP has always been consistent in interview after interview for a stretch of several years regarding a superfight vs Silva. In his responses, he would always say 1) he can't look past his current opponent, but more importantly 2) he would need to take off a solid year to gain the muscle necessary to compete at 185lbs. He has said this over and over and over again. He has also said that his goal is to be the best mixed martial artist ever, and if he beat Silva, he would retire, as there would be no challenges left, and he would have achieved his goal. You can hear this in numerous interviews on youtube.

    It had often been said over the past few years that GSP cleared out the welterweight division, but after beating Hendricks, he truly had - there is nobody left. Did GSP leave for personal issues, stress, headaches, and/or the drug testing fiasco? Those things probably all played a role in his timing. But the underlying reason, in my opinion, is that he recognized he had no challengers left at 170 and wanted to take some time away to gain weight to pursue his final fight. One of the things that stood out to me in an interview with Faras shortly after GSP announced he was taking time away was that he mentioned GSP is gaining weight, gaining muscle. Why would he say that?

    The injury to Silva in the Weidman rematch may well have thrown a wrench into GSP's plans, and that's why I think he is now coming out with a bunch of other reasons why he left. But deep down, based on his previous consistency, I still believe he did it to finally pursue the superfight. No telling what the future will hold for him now - either a hyped up Hendricks rematch, or perhaps he may still pursue the 185lb division.

    3 months is being generous, unless he's holding on to hoping that GSP will be back.

    yeah exactly, the fact that he went out of his way to say he was never going to say it proved to me that he eventually will.
