To each their own, but I'm no fan of Georges "Safe" Pierre. I am, obviously, a "just bleed" kind of fan, but for the champion to be ALWAYS be unable to handle his opponents in a manner that many of his peers are capable of makes me wonder about this supposed "dominance."

Just my opinion man, I know it's unpopular on Sherdog where GSP is some sort of demi-god because he's able to win decision after decision after decision against opponents whom the rest of the WW division seems to be able to finish. There are, of course, exceptions, but they prove the rule. ; )

Your join date says it all, and is probably the only reason why your not banned forever for posting one of the p4p most idiotic statements in sherdog history.

Gsp has handled more decorated wrestlers in their prime than anyone else. Just look it up on wiki. Wow.

Do us all a favor, and go back to WWE from where you obviously graduated from.

Yep, because you're only a real MMA fan if you worship GSP and joined Sherdog back in the 1970's.

You're right though. GSP is human. I feel like that's harder to accept for his Canadian fans because he is like a national hero as he's the only superstar in MMA out of Canada. He's got the good looking, nice guy theme going for him too, so he really does create that superhero arch type so much to the point that his fans can't accept his flaws. Reality is though he started young and has racked up the most cage time out of anybody. According to the media his camps are longer/harder than 99% of other fighters out there. People see his age at 32 and think, "Oh he's still young," but he's not young in the sense of ring age. IMO he's also the type of fighter who has relied heavily on his speed advantage, and that's the first thing to go as you age. Tearing your ACL doesn't help neither. Along with the division getting tougher, it's just the natural order of sports when saying his better days are behind him. It's hard to accept but I don't see any of the older generation fighters becoming champs for much longer.
Great points Snizzar.

Hopefully you're trolling. If you really believe that WW was weak, you're a lost cause.
