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.
