GSP Johnny, one more thing

After reading everything and watching the fight a couple of times. FIGHTS, what do we look for ? A good beat down......GSP has been the champ, never has he been a "Beat down" kind of fighter.....these forums have accused GSP of being a boring point fighter for many years.....Johnny is a beat down kind of fighter....Fightmetrics does not lie, you can disagree with the scoring system, but why is everyone so surprised that the best point fighter in the history of the UFC out pointed and kept his belt? FWIW I don't think GSP does this on purpose it's just his style that happens to fit nicely with the current scoring system....we watch the fights with a very different eye that the judges do, our focus is different, no need to be surprised.....on another note Rory M, he is training to be a point fighter like GSP, but he is young and has not yet perfected the art....

love where you live or move

Ellipses are no substitute for periods and paragraphs.

They're not even ellipses. They're ellipses followed by a period. Very strange.

I think the thread starter makes an interesting point though.
