    doming from a guy who has recently retired. its a competitive thing. I know georges, and for him its about cementing his legacy as the best WW ever and one in the discussion for all time p4p great. If he loses he wont hang em up. he wants to leave on top and on his terms.
    i can relate. I could have retired a year ago but i wanted to go on my terms when i wanted to. i wasnt getting punched in the face for a living, but that side of you never really goes away.

    GSP always had the right at any point.

    Georges has probably banked 50+ million. While he has put off having a family in order to pursue his career, he was also enjoying the advantages of massive fame. A different model every night. Everyone fawning over him. I'm sure at some point such a life would become tiresome.

    Only GSP knows whether or not it already has.

    Johny Hendricks first realized KO power with arcade-style punching machine
    If you ask Team Takedown founder Ted Ehrhardt when he first figured out that Johny Hendricks had serious power in his left hand, he’ll tell you it was an arcade-style punch machine that convinced him.

    This was before Hendricks (15-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) cold-clocked Jon Fitch in 12 seconds and then ran around the cage looking like even he couldn’t believe what had just happened. It was before he dropped Martin Kampmann in the exact same fashion, and long before he won the right to face UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre (24-2 MMA, 18-2 UFC) on Saturday at UFC 167 in Las Vegas.

    It was back when Hendricks was still fairly new to the UFC and the sport of MMA. He and Ehrhardt had gone to London for a UFC expo, and after the autograph signing was done for the day, they figured they’d entertain themselves by trying out a machine that purported to measure punching power.

    “Jon Jones had hit it,” Ehrhardt told MMAjunkie in an interview for a special feature on Hendricks, which comes out in Friday’s special UFC 167 pullout section in USA TODAY. “Matt Mitrione and some other heavyweights had also hit it. Then Johny hit it, and he beat everybody’s scores. We just kind of thought, hey, wow.”

    The next day, Ehrhardt said, they went to a boxing gym in London that had a similar machine. There, all the top records belonged to local heavyweights.

    “So Johny hit that one, and he broke that record too,” Ehrhardt said. “That’s when the switch flipped for both of us, and we thought, there’s some real power in that left hand.”

    How does one time being knocked out with a solid flush shot to the jaw correspond to having a weak chin for the entirety of GSP's career?

    His chin looked pretty solid when he took that head kick from Condit.

    Precisely, GSP has repeatedly taken solid shots ever since.

    One loss does not make you a loser or a failure, just as being knocked out one time in 26 fights does not mean you have a weak chin. Does GSP have poor submission defense because he was defeated once by submission by Matt Hughes? No.

    That's because he got hit in the side of the head, not the chin.

    The term "chin" refers to resilience in regards to blows to the head.

    The term you are looking for is "glass jaw."
