You know Mayhem was only finished 3 times in 38 fights, one being by soccer kicks, right?

Get out.
Not quite, GSP was slight favorite in that fight. Mayhem's bandwagon however was insane around that time, so I can see why he was viewed as the favorite.

I'm not gonna tell you or anyone else who or what they need to stay loyal to. That's on them. But I look at MMA as a sport just like football, baseball or anything else. Although it's an individual sport & not a team effort. But for the most part I think fans stay loyal to teams regardless if their approach changes. I became a Miami Dolphins fan because of Dan Marino. Now 30 or so years later the Dolphins do not remotely resemble the team that I became a fan of. Not in either approach to the game or success wise. But I'm still a fan. To each their own but I have a hard time just quitting being a fan due to a change in style . I guess I'm just loyal to a fault.

Yes but how justified is it to hang around every GSP-related thead being a whiny bitch? Why didn't you just fuck right off as soon as you found he was no longer to your liking? Could it be you are just a douche bag troll? Oh yes, I think that is definitely it. Now PFO.

GSP may have never been the best fighter (for all you haters, yes I concede that) but I am a fan because of his integrity and skill.

I think Gsp was the underdog? So I guess it's more correct to say another guy he should have lost to?

He definitely looked good(homo) and was much faster than today. The combo that he stunned Trigg with was lighting fast and he was insanely quick on his feet.

GSP weighed the same as Menjivar when they fought.
