Thread: gsp

    Default gsp

    Does anyone else here wonder what GSP couldve done if he stuck with wrestling, instead of commiting to only mma.

    Thoughts?

    I hear people mention the question "what if GSP were to wrestle freestyle" a lot. If he were, what weight do you think he would go? Do you think he could he make 163? (I'd be interested to see him wrestle Matt Gentry).

    I don't know how much weight he cuts to make 170 but he doesn't have a lot of fat on him. We really need a weight class between 163 and 184.

    Well I don't know about him "sticking" with wrestling. I believe he's never been in an official wrestling match. He said in an interview somewhere that he was in good enough shape to take the Hughes fight on short notice because he planned to try out for the Canadian Olympic team. I would have liked to see the result of him trying it, and the result of a match between him and Gentry.
    He let himself down, for what...a woman. I say, go be a world champion let the women come to you......Tito Ortiz

    Does any part of this post after the word "SQUASHED" make any sense? Is Gentry the top guy? You say that GSP would be squashed, then you say we sell Canadian wrestlers short? Huh?

    What I meant is that gsp would not have beatin the 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th place guy to get to gentry at the olympic trials, and the saying "you sell too short" simply means underestimate or do not give the credit that its worth. Sorry if I was confusing in my words.

    Yeah, I still don't get it. It seems like you're implying that Gentry is the #1 ranked guy, when he's not even ranked in the top 10. Then you say that we are underestimating Canadian wrestlers, but you just said yourself that GSP would get crushed. Mind bottling stuff.

    The original question is not whether GSP would do well in wrestling right now, it's asking how he would have done if he had stuck with wrestling and focused all of his time on it. Five point, do you still think he wouldn't have done well with it if he was focused on wrestling and only wrestling?
