Curious to hear opinions.
GSP was more about pure control and playing it safe, Khabib takes pleasure in beating you up.
Both are great though imo.
Khabib is also boring, can't finish his dinner.
I'm curious to hear opinions too, yours.
So Kahbib apeals to the just bleed fans and GSP the ones that can get into more nuanced technique.
Who said he wasn't boring?
I don't think Khabib is that exciting of a fighter either. Very dominant, does more damage than GSP but is also a poor finisher.
I enjoy different fighting styles. I like both.
If by "nuanced technique" you mean "playing it safe" then yes.
Kahbib seems to get more respect than GSP. I dont notice many hate threads about him
Khabib is incredibly boring. Both guys are very compelling outside of the cage however.
Sure but against the competition GSP faced it still took skill.
Khabib actually hits his opponent after taking them down.
Khabib doesn't lay & pray.
What makes classical music boring but jazz entertaining?
The answer: it depends upon who you ask, boring is subjective. Some people find classical music boring and jazz entertaining, others find classical entertaining and jazz boring, some find both entertaining, and some find both boring.
Thinking there's anything like consensus between people on what is boring and what is entertaining is extremely naive. You can go through books, movies, sports, music and always find the same thing: people disagree on what is boring and what is entertaining.
He smashes people's faces?
GSP had more weapons but refused to take risks. Khabib does his best with his one weapon. GSP showed us he could win and be exciting in his path to the title, destroying solid fighters like Trigg, Sherk and more at their own game. So we expected him to absolutely maul 1 dimensional guys like Dan Hardy or Alvez to easily destroy Shields standing but instead we got some boringass shit.
Khabib comes at you for 25 minutes. GSP is content to outjab / outposition you for 25 minutes.
Certainly but I think the old idea that safe decision fighting is some kind of "nuanced" or superior skill has always been flawed, the reality is more aggressive fighting is more demanding of skill if you want to stay undefeated.
