Moments ago, you retired officially. Whether this is or isn’t the end of you in combat sports, it is only right to pay tribute.
We here at Untitled MMA collectively lost our minds when you beat Michael Bisping at UFC 217. It was our first time wathcing you live as a group, and you gave us one of the best MMA moments. You have a real stake as the sport’s GOAT, as written about here in the lead-up to UFC 217, and we just want to say thank you. You were a true professional inside and outside of the octagon. As Dana White said, you put MMA on the map in Canada and put Canada on the map for MMA fans. Always ahead of the game, you were modern MMA before modern MMA came to be.
To end this small post giving thanks, this is how I updated the GSP GOAT article after the fight concluded: “There’s nothing he can’t do. All Hail Lord GSP. This is his world now.”
