Agree or disagree?
Gsp is my favorite fighter. That's a difficult question and I'm of two minds about it.
I'm interested to see him return as I've always seen him as a very smart fighter. I don't think he'd come back just to make some extra cash. While he hasn't competed for a few years I believe he still trains very regularly and keeps up with what's going on. By deciding to make his comeback, I think he has already gone over things like competition, weight cutting, etc. and has a plan in mind for the next couple fights.
If his comeback is simply to step in and fight bisping for the title and then relinquish it to move down or simply retire again if he wins, I would be a bit disappointed to be honest.
Finally, if he comes back and loses I can't view it as tarnishing his legacy. Jumping back to the top of competition after being out for years takes some serious drive. Instead of staying gone and being satisfied with what he's already accomplished, he's willing to go out and try to continue adding to it. To me, that's impressive in itself.
Best of luck Georges!
