    Being a smaller man DJ can do things GSP can't.

    DJ is the better striker. Compare them pound for pound and you might get a different answer.

    Right, they were not champion because they couldn't get past MM.

    Statistically GSP has the slight advantage. GSP has 53% striking accuracy and 73% strikes avoided. Demetrious has 54% striking accuracy with 67% strikes avoided.

    GSP has more KO/TKO finishes than Demetrious. So, GSP is the better striker.

    Great question I’ll go with GSP just because of how important his jab was to his game. His striking is what allowed him to dominate with takedowns. Dj is sick too though so it’s close but GSP had to strike with some fantastic hitters in his career. Carlos Thiago Alves nick Diaz were killers when GSP soundly outstruck them.
