He uses strikes to set up takedowns and fakedowns to set up strike and he's really good at it guys are afraid to unleash a flurry or they'll end up on their ass

Johny has the wrestling, striking, and power to get the job done.
Doesn't mean he will. All those guys had skills to beat GSP but could not. GSP is great because he has consistently fought and beaten very good opponents.

Only fighters I like by weightclass

All of GSP's opponents have had weeks if not months of prior knowledge on GSP's game plan and style. Hell 50% of you claim to know what he's going to do...LAY N PRAY for a 50-45 win. Now if all of you know this, (and I do too).

a) why can't anyone stop him?

b) if no one can stop him, why does he alone bare the burden of being the boring fighter? I never witness any grief towards his opponent for "not doing enough".

Anyone know why? Thanks. Enjoy the fight's guy's.
a) he isn't a LnP fighter. He's probably top 5-10 at WW in every aspect of the game outside of KO power. He puts fighters where they're weakest, for most that just happens to be underneath him defending GnP & subs. For others, like Kos & Shields, it's standing.

b) just bleed fans hate technical fights, regardless of how dominant they are.
