Frank Trigg, Matt Serra, Chael Sonnen – all of these guys were always good, but never truly great. One of these guys, Frank Trigg, spoke to Submission Radio and flat out said Georges St. Pierre did not win against Hendricks and that may be the reason he left the UFC. Frank, a lot of us would agree with you fine sir. Now, with Robbie Lawler at the top of the heap it is not a surprise that GSP is talking a comeback. Hendricks was too much for GSP to handle at times and he was in big trouble more than once. Robbie on the other hand would be easier to take down if you ask GSP’s camp and that suits the blanket style of St. Pierre. Trigg took on these topics when he appeared on Submission Radio recently.
GSP a year and half ago and Robbie Lawler now, GSP wins every single time without a doubt. It’s not even a question. Anybody that knows the sport knows that.”
The problem is GSP is out, and him trying to come back after his layoff, he’s crap. He’ll be lucky honestly, ’cause of the way the welterweight division, because of how tightly skewed it is, how tight that division is, GSP would be lucky to break into the top five when he comes back.”
The reality of it is, GSP is not that good anymore. Johny Hendricks tested him as far as he wanted to be pushed and almost broke him in half; and personally I think that fight should have been a draw as opposed to GSP winning that fight when him and Hendricks fought. But he realized ‘hey I’m really getting to the end of my rope. I’m really getting to the end of my athletic career’. Why go out and have a win/loss, like my last five fights or 3-2. Why not go out on this great record and be the best champion the UFC has ever had, and he can walk away.
Do you agree with Frank?
