The Pennington Tate fight was intense especially when Pennington lifted Tate off the ground by the neck.

It was pretty obvious that McGregor would win...hell in the staredown after the weigh-in he looked bigger than Alvarez. If he was ever gonna hold both simultaneously, now was the time, the lightweght division hasn't been held by a single fighter longer than maybe 1 title defense for years now.

You don't have to like his personality to know that you have to talk about him in comparison to the greatest fighters in history like GSP, Silva and Penn. Hell, I think that at their primes McGregor would be a really tough fight for Penn...probably not so much for GSP.

GSP would whip Connor, he can barely handle Diaz. Won a close decision and tapped out in the other. Next one against Nate should be another great match.

Agreed...GSP would go in with a crazy strength and size advantage. He might also be the ONLY fighter out of all the guys who wouldn't be affected by the trashtalk and try to bang with Connor.

No way could Connor keep himself off the mat against GSP...hell come to think of it, how many takedown guys has Connor faced? I wouldn't consider Diaz a takedown guy, he is great on the ground but I never thought of him as someone that shoots well, more of like a clinch and throw/trip guy.

There's been "rumors" that GSP wants back in specifically to fight Connor...I'd be all for it but you might get a revolt from the LW and FW divisions, it would be interesting to see if the UFC cares at this point. Heck Connor might vacate the FW title if he gets a shot at GSP, since mountains for him to climb, at this point, are few beating one of the all time greats who may/may not still be in prime shape would be important if you're thinking about his legacy (which I'm sure he is). It'd be a huge money fight.

If GSP comes back to fight that would be the biggest fight period. GSP VS. McGregor back for more. lol

I think that's the only fight that could pull GSP out of retirement.

Seriously though, I think Mac would have to say YES to the fight just because of where he wants to be placed as far as legacy. If he never fights another legend (well I guess Aldo was a legend too but not on the same level as GSP due to the competition) he will always have to stand on the simultaneous titles but people will always bring up that Aldo was his only truly great opponent and that still doesn't erase the fact that he lost to an out-of-training Nate Diaz.

He seems to want to set himself apart from Penn, Aldo, GSP, Silva and Fedor...beating GSP could do that and I would be hard-pressed to argue differently. I still don't like Mac's attitude but it is what it is.

If he could even beat GSP then thats a different story, but I dont think that would happen, GSP has been known to snap necks even when he's sleeping o_0

Yeah, the only trouble GSP has ever had was in his early career when he got complacent OR when he's faced people with significant weight/strength advantage (but he's never lost to them, just had a harder time imposing his will).

I think the only problem to this potential match-up is that GSP hasn't fought in a long time and he isn't getting any younger. If they want to do this they need to sign it NOW and give GSP some time to shake off the rust. But that is actually a possibility since Mac is expecting a child.
