If you don't want to and I'd wouldn't blame you as it was pretty boring, here's the stats from the fight.
I was there and I saw people leaving midway through the 5th to beat traffic.

i think GSP has the ability to finish fights but he chooses to play it safe and doesn't take the risks that could result in getting the finish. Back in the day you could see that killer instinct and his finishing ability, it didn't disappear, now it's just in the shadow of his play it safe strategies.

I feel like Bendo has killer instinct & goes for finishes, he's just not a very hard hitters. He landed body shots on Thomson with pretty much all his power & they didn't do much. I feel like "lack of killer instinct" should go to guys with power/subs that just don't go for the kill. Rashad post Machida is my first pick, but he did finish Chael via strikes which isn't easy.

Bendo and GSP had more intention to finish fight via strikes or submission than BEN ASKREN

that is the REAL lack of killer instinct in a fighter
