As multiple MMA writers continue to speculate whether or not he is going to return to the sport, he has taken on quite a different role. Instead of letting his fists do the talking, GSP has become a spokesman of sorts for the conversations that much of the MMA world has not wanted to discuss. It would be vital to see him stay in this position, regardless of whether he returns to competition or read news >>

According to Nick Diaz, the reason why the oft-talked-about superfight between Georges St-Pierre and Anderson Silva never took place was simply because St-Pierre was afraid.

This is, of course, not the first time GSP has talked about space critters.
