    But on the bright side at least George has the ubber supportive Dana White and UFC family behind him as he tries to work though his suggested mental health issues.

    Blah blah blah. The most damage GSP has taken in a fight aside from when he got his head popped off by Mighty Mouse Matt Serra.

    And you always side with the masses. Such a sheep, such a sheep.

    Yes sir, the live MMA crowds definitely don't pull any punches. I wonder if the UFC knew of possible GSP retirement and that spurred bias towards Hendricks?

    There certainly did seem to be a motive behind the bias and knowing that their cash cow was possibly retiring they needed to try and build someone up at his expense

    GSP showed why he was champion in the 5th. He came out to win it and he did just that. Johnny should have put that energy in his victory celebration into round 5 instead. Where is all this "GSP's weakness is he cant take a punch" BS now???

    Hendricks was gassed after he tried to finish GSP in the 2nd and only recovered because of GSP tripping in round 4. I say GSP does the rematch right away, owns Johnny easily and retires the best ever.

    I hope they rematch fast. I will be betting huge on GSP. Can you imagine what the betting lines are going to be with all this fake outrage?

    I think nationalism and patriotism is silly. So what? Where you were born is not an achievement.
