So GSP is all of a sudden a disgruntled Zuffa employee who is bashing PEDs after being accused for years, but doesn't speak out until right before he's about to step away from the sport for awhile? Keith Kizer steps down shortly after and all of a sudden TRT is banned and everyone celebrates. Not a word from GSP? So did George know that they were about to start cracking down on TRT/PEDs with out of competition drug testing that's why he always takes long breaks? Maybe the drugs have fucked him up and he doesn't want it to all blow up so he's talking against It and Zuffa as a smoke screen. Just some thoughts it all seems weird. Phone Post

It's just weird that GSP the highest paid athlete in the sport who has never said a bad thing about Zuffa all of a sudden has changed his tune. Then is all of a sudden all about proving he doesn't cheat, so that's a huge story and days later Kizer steps down, then boom TRT Banned! All big stories kind of talking about or involving the same things. Phone Post

Gsp was a company man. And he couldn't take it any longer. He quit then told everyone how he felt. Can't be the champ and talk shit about your company/bosses. Come on man. Phone Post 3.0

He was a company man and like the other company men before him he did the opposite. So it's odd and doesnt make sense. Unless he's just so bitter that Dana thought he lost but he's not that much of a pussy everyone has opinions. What does GSP have to be mad at the UFC about hes the highest paid fighter, he fights like once a year, he's sponsored by all the big companies I mean if his life sucks an he hates his job I'm fucked!

This came out yesterday and GSP doesn't follow the news, too busy worrying about aliens and condoms.

GSP actually made a statement at an event in Montreal yesterday. I saw it on a CTV news page. He said "It was about time"

So everything that had happened

Dan Henderson injures knee, UFC 151 is canceled.

Machida asks for more time to prepare for Jones, Dana says no and lets Belfort fight Jones, defends title.

Sonnen gets next crack at him and fails.

GSP asks for more drug testing, Hendricks says okay, psyche.

Dana says GSP is weird for wanting that and something about Ronda

GSP defends championship against Hendricks, wants break. Dana is mad, things were said.

GSP goes off about drug use

Kizer steps down

Silva breaks leg against Weidman, something about Serra

Belfort gets next title shot

TRT is banned

Belfort doesnt have enough time and steps down, replaced with Machida

What does this mean?

The world could not handle two amazing fighters having a leg injury before an event, and at the end of an event. As for every action, it causes an equal or greater effect, which you would assume would mean balance, unless its the greater effect, which Silva's leg brought. Panicked time is reversing ever action in the opposite order. TRT is the issue here, but not the TRT we think.

Time Reverse Theory.

This is ground breaking shit OP, great job. Voted up Phone Post 3.0

I'm a big Zuffa supporter and uFC fan I think they are the reason we have mma on the level we do today, but Zuffa, GSP, Kizer, TRT/PEDS, NSAC, Vitor Belfort, The Fertittas all are mixed up I. Some shady shit it seems. I don't mind it I love a little nastiness in the fight game, makes things interesting as long as the fights aren't fixed. Phone Post

GSP bashes UFC and PEDs
Keizer steps down
TRT Banned

Maybe GSP knew something was going on that was shady with Kizer and Zuffa and threatened to expose them. Kizer got scared and stepped away, TRT gets banned, Zuffa has to say like they fully support it so they don't look suspicious. Doesn't it seem odd that it seems like UFC basically told Vitor he was out of the fight since there was no TRT exemption for him. I mean am I the only one who thinks this is all a bit questionable?

Kizer stepping down and TRT being banned are likely related.

From the UFC's standpoint, TRT exemptions had no upside. It only made it more likely guys would be caught cheating. And even guys who stuck within the terms of their exemptions were the source of constant speculation. It was bad for PR all around. Banning it entirely was the best thing that could happen from a business standpoint.

GSP had been pushing for better testing for a while. He just waited until his retirement to say so explicitly.

As far as GSP goes, when he was recovering from his knee injury, he probably realized how much better his life was then compared to when he was always getting ready for fights. So if you look at the fights he took before he retired, you have Condit, Diaz, and Hendricks. He had to fight Condit because he had the interim belt. Next was Diaz. Why? It was an enormous payday. That fight had one of the highest PPV ratings in UFC history. He thought he might be out the door soon, so he wanted to get paid before he left. Finally, you have Hendricks, which is the fight people had been demanding for a while. He doesn't want to fight Hendricks again because they had a close fight and he might lose the next one. He can get more money from sponsors in retirement if he leaves with a win.

If he truly has OCD or whatever and has to be the best and push himself you would think that a guy like that looks for every advantage. We know he does in training with his camps being so intense, but also with the multiple greasing allegations, and actual witnessing of greasing he really seems like a win at all costs. Just the way he started to fight was so safe like he couldn't not be champ. So I guy like that who pushes himself the way he does has to be on something but maybe not. Phone Post

All could be true, makes sense. It's just hard to avoid how the timing of it all. Phone Post

OMG, you're right...GSP HAD to be on PEDs, now that he's coming out against them (as always).

Idiot.

I believe and I heard from reliable sources that GSP does have something to do with this! Don't be surprised if he becomes the leader of a fighters union! Phone Post 3.0
