Matt Hughes commenting on GSP? Read the story and quotes. Fact is, Hughes is completely wrong.
It's not that GSP is sliding, aging or that the competition is getting closer to his skill set. You know what it's called? It's called....burnout. For the very reason GSP stepped away is the very reason that Hendricks was able to do what he did. The mental game for GSP has obviously been eating away at him. It's nothing more complicated than that.
Hughes needs to rethink this. Taking a LOA and giving up the title because of mental and not physical issues is the only story here. Perhaps Hughes is doing this to motivate GSP to get back in there. That's the only way what he said makes any sense at all.
