Yeah, no. GSP isn't the UFC. He did a lot for the sport and he's a legend, but not more so than other legends, past and future. You can't do anything you want in life. That's just the way it is. Chuck Liddell couldn't spend his ****ing nights boozing and gambling while in the UFC just like you can't decide to take time off out of nowhere when you're champ without giving very good reasons.
And he did do more than the legends. The records speak for themselves.
