Freddie talks about training the Champ for years, his performance against Bisping and the likelihood that GSP will stay at 185lbs to defend the belt against Interim Champ Robert Whittaker. Freddie also shares his thoughts on Conor McGregor’s loss to Floyd Mayweather and WBO Light Middleweight Champ Miguel Cotto’s upcoming farewell fight against Sadam Ali.

  1. Whittaker is the hardest fight from middleweight down. He could even put on some weight and go up to light heavyweight and maybe be the champion in the future. DC is getting old, Whittaker is better on the feet and more athletic.

  3. No, see Karyn that's why I can't have any respect for you- because I know that you know better than that- if Conor wanted that fight to continue he knew all he had to do was just clinch, throw a punch, anything- he did nothing because he didn't want to get knocked out. He knows he can't afford to have that video clip floating around for people to play- he just lost, the media maggots are all going to need to launch into their "Look how well Conor takes a loss…" bit and their "Conor lasted longer than most seasoned boxers…" bullshit- they had already primed it all before the fight even started by convincing everyone if Conor won even a couple rounds that should be considered a victory- something even Mayweather helped you guys sell because after all- he was getting his fiftieth win handed to him on a golden platter and making millions, the least he could do was carry Conor long enough to make him look legit and make all you guys' job of excusing away the loss that much easier. This entire sport is about ninety percent bulshit and hype- puncuated by the actual fights- the moments of actual truth. I'm not immuned to it- when you guys hype up someone I like it's much harder for me to see it. I just wish things would go back to the way it used to be before there was this constant barrage of media hype and bulshit to dig through.

    • Agree with everything except last part.
      GSP is way too big for McGregor. It would be a freak show fight and McGregor would be demolished in similar fashion as in the maymac fight. Dana White has no intention to make that fight happen, wouldnt benefit the UFC.
