Yes he was a great fighter, just old now. Interesting trend...A lot of top fighters that lost to GSP saw their careers go downhill after the loss. Hughes, Koscheck, BJ Penn, Thiago Alves, Condit, Hendricks were at their peaks fighting GSP and their careers were never the same after losing to him.

Cormier is older, but point taken. That's pretty interesting. Hendricks really baffles me. He really should've won his fight with GSP, you would think he'd just regroup and take the belt.

I think the 1st round was what won it for GSP against Hendricks. Unfortunately for Hendricks, even tho he won the vacant title before going into the crapper, testing got a lot better and he couldn't juice anymore. I think GSP took the will away from a lot of fighters with his total dominance over them. He'd beat them at their specialty and do it with relative ease. Fun fact... since his loss in 2004 he won virtually every single round,(minus the Serra loss), until meeting Hendricks. That's 17 fights where he totally dominated the #1 opponent in his field. He never had an easy fight. GSP was the greatest of all time imho. A last second of the round arm bar against Hughes and a lucky punch from Serra are the only 2 blemishes on his record.

Poor Felicia, she never really stood a chance. Amanda could probably take out guys in her weight class. She is such a tank and a brutal striker. Gotta hand it to Felicia, she didn't quite, but it's a next level challenge trying to beat the
