That was also before GSP was considered the best MMA wrestler and also while Mike was fighting at 205.
I'd say an improved GSP has a chance to take down a smaller and older Bisping, improved TDD or not.
11 years ago alot of us knew GSP was the best MMA wrestler. He ran through, and i mean literally ran through sherk and Trigg two very good wrestlers. Then in 06 he beat BJ after getting a little busted up, there was some dry humping involved in rnd 2 and 3 lol. Then finished 06 off destroying Hughes, which most of us seen coming. Damn doesnt seem like 11 years ago does it? Has anyone fought and destroyed for as long as GSP? Dominated may be a better word actually.
But i do agree Bisping seems to think GSP hasnt improved much by his statements. That is a mistake. He hasnt fought in a while, but he has had smokers from what i understand and never stopped training and probably sustained little damage in that time while Bisping has sustained quite a bit in his last fight alone. None the less against an aged Hendo. Bispings style is great for Hendo as well. Bisping pulled it out but hendo could have easily retired champ if there were different judges that night. Great fight though. Bisping landed more but got hurt more. Who you got in this one buddy?
