He does come from AKA though and Thomson just killed Melendez, GSP handled Koscheck but I think Koscheck had a bad plan, I think will put up a bigger fight and might have a chance. I think GSP wins this 8 out of 10 times.

Koscheck had a plan? lol


I don't see how this affects the fight in any way.

i just hope he smashes fitch.i used to like fitch until he made that stupid comment about how gsp has turned into a wrestler since he got kod. has that guy watched any of gsp's fights before. coming from a guy who just got off a descision on a nobody for wrestling him to the ground the entire fight. boo fitch.

I like Fitch and think he is going to have a great chance beating St. Pierre. I would put a lump some of money on GSP but Fitch has the tools to play spoiler for sure.

I have a lot of respect for Fitch. What a great fighter. But I hope Georges St. Pierre teaches him a lesson. I am saying rd 2 TKO. He should not have said those things.

I'm sitting here thinking about it and I honestly don't think I've ever been such a huge fan of two fighters that are set to face each other.

I love GSP but my heart is wanting me to root for the hometown boy, Fitch. I can't wait to see this fight. I guess I just won't be disappointed, regardless of the outcome.

I think Fitch is a bigger threat for GSP, I think alves will be able to be controlled on the ground by GSP. I think GSP will beat both of them

I dont know why people, including Fitch, say GSP is afraid to stand up and fight. He outwrestled a wrestler, took down and BJJ black belt and controlled him, and submitted the best welterweight ever. Its called having a gameplan. He doesnt get paid to lose and even if he is taking guys down he doesnt LNP. He still makes the fight exciting with strikes and sub attempts.

I have GSP ranked #1, and Fitch #2.

I have BOTH on my fav fighter list. I think Fitch may be in the top 5 best fighters in the world noone has ever heard of, but I think GSP is just a shaved albino chimpanzee. He's a natural animal. I have GSP for the split decision.
