Tyron came out of 10 rounds against Wonderboy unscathed, but GSP is gonna "jab fest" him?

    Better everywhere and better overall are extremely similar statements. I said both and I meant both. Quit crying about how I phrase things. Jesus Christ.

    GSP won't even defend the title he just got so I am highly skeptical that he would ever fight Woodley. He just wants the easiest paydays so this entire topic is most likely irrelevant.

    GSP was the man back in the day but today he wants NO PART of Tyron
    That fight is simply not going to happen

    *In between getting out struck.

    If you want to make him out as a killer talk about some other fights.

    I see GSP setting up beautiful takedowns, and GnP'ing Woodley to a 50-45 decision. GSP and his team are masters of the gameplan, I don't see this fight being as interesting or close as others here do. But this is MMA so you never know.

    That only means he checks off one area of being a well rounded fighter. GSP is a much more well rounded fighter and has a history of neutralizing literally every single fuckin one of his opponent's strengths.

    Are GSP and Thompson remotely similar?

    I look forward to him taking a real fight instead of Bisping.

    No they are not. GSP having a better jab would mean Wonderboy couldn’t possibly be better at every aspect. As if I needed to point this out to someone fuck sake

    Says the guy who cries about his Brazilian idols being negatively discussed to the point he brands them haters yet does the exact same thing to other fighters.

    Again well done for outing yourself

    Areyou not impressed with Tyron's 2 victories over Thompson (regardless if you agree with judges or not)??? So are you saying that Woodley coming out victorious after spending 10 rounds on the feet against an absolute expert on the feet like Wonderboy, isn´t incredible? (Without even using his wrestling)

    Here´s what I call outstriking somebody and damn nearly putting him to sleep.
    And in downplaying Woodley the way you guys are doing, you also downplay Wonderboy's heart for surviving that flurry and guillotine. What a warrior, what a true warrior's spirit.

    Did I say that GSP had a better jab? No I didn't.

    Wonderboy is a better striker in every aspect. All around. Completely.

    Want to bitch some more about my wording?

    I´ll try to explain:

    Thompson is an expert on the feet, right?
    Yes.

    If I had said "he survived 10 rounds with Maia on the ground unscathed"....... would you agree with me that it´s reasonable to say that this person is gonna be hard for someone to finish on the ground?

    so your solution to getting called on moving goalposts was to say something completely outrageous that nobody rational would agree with?

    Nobody who watches MMA thinks wonderboy has a better jab than GSP. Nobody.

    It's the same thing I said at the beginning lol

    Ask me if I care? Wonderboy is a far better striker. Go cry about it.

    No argument at all? I thought we were gonna have a nice debate, maybe I´d be able to see some of your points of view and some different ideas and such nuances you´re talking about. That´s what I´d expect from a Tool fan anyways, to be more open minded and welcome to different points of view.....................

    Oh well.... thanks anyway.

    None needed; you're dismissive of any POV that doesn't adhere to yours. Also, you deal in generalities(e.g. wrestler+power=2.0 version).
