    “We were planning on him throwing a right hand,” Dillashaw said. “Every time he throws a right hand, he drops his left. He’s looking to throw a left hook. He’s fast. He throws a big right, left hand. But he drops it to his pocket. So were planning on timing it.”

    GSP is the greatest ever welterweight in terms of guys he beat and the amount of title defences.

    Woodley is creeping up though and if the two fought in their prime it would be a tough one to call. The sport is improving so quickly I feel like the standard is much higher now than it was when GSP was champ even though it wasn’t that long ago.

    Woodley is a terrible match up for GSP as well.

    I don't think it's improved that much if any not in some weight classes anyway. Hughes and Henderson were beasts and most of them were juiced up that made them even more powerful and dangerous.

    GSP is a far superior fighter. It’ll take the eventual defeat that Woodley will have for folk to see that because he’s riding the crest of a wave. Woodley is a beast but he isn’t on GSP’s level, by a long shot.

    Just realised there’s an actual fight card that can be watched at a decent hour just now, result! Shame the Card isn’t the best but * it.

    Mark Hunt up next should be good, hopefully he don't get subbed and gets the KO, love his walk off when he ices people.

    How heavy is Mark Hunts striking?

    The * is 44 years old and hits like a freight train without even trying.

    One of my favourite fighters of all time, Kid Yamamoto died of cancer at only 41.

    RIP Legend
