For over 7 years now GSP has found himself within the top 2 of the World MMA Rankings, and for 6 of those years he has found himself at number one. With a career record of 22-2 and a UFC Championship, a current win streak of 9 straight wins and the most consecutive Welterweight title defences it is fair to say he is the best welterweight on the planet. Or is it?
GSP hasn’t fought in over 11 months and his last victory was over Jake Shields. At the time Jake was still adjusting to his new welterweight weight class. Since Jake’s loss to the champ he has gone 1 and 1, one win and one loss. However he is not the only opponent GSP has beaten who after facing the champion has struggled to rereach the top of the division.
In fact as of 2009 GSP has only fought 5 fighters, averaging out at a fight roughly every 7 months, but as the months go by the challengers GSP has beaten have had the contendership questioned.Link by MMA Mental
