    Listening to Gary Goodridge talk these days gives credence to GSP's "safe" fighting style.

    He sounds better than he has in awhile.

    The best fighting style is not to fight at all.

    He's pretty active on Facebook. A lot of the old school (UFC 1-20, PRIDE 1-20 ish) MMA pioneers are.

    the past 6 years of boringness is not really a "tail end".


    more like the 2nd half of his career.
     
  14. Are you sure because he was awarded FOTN against Kos, FOTY vs. Carlos, and FOTN vs Johny. The fight he headlined vs Shields not only set the all-time worldwide live gate for an MMA event but all set the North American attendance record for an MMA event.

    One could hardly blame Georges for the Nick Diaz fight. It's not his fault a Cesar Gracie blackbelt kept crawling away from the ground fight. Georges, unlike Carlos, stood right in front of Nick during the stand-up portion of the fight.

    Consumers do not take money out of their pocket to attend live events and purchase PPV that they do not believe are entertaining. Fans voted with their wallet and the message has always been clear.

    Easy to win FOTN in your home town. The attendance at the Rogers Centre was more about MMA being legalized in Ontario and the first UFC event than about GSP. I'm not saying there weren't GSP fans there, but a lot the people there were there for the event more than being hardcore fans of MMA. Fans were walking out of the show during his fight with Shields, lol. The UFC had to go back to a smaller venue in Toronto the next time out and GSP never fought in TO again.

    Yea, there's a reason the Kos fight was the first and last time the UFC let the fans pick the FOTN. And I'm a GSP fan. It was a nice performance, but there are at least 4 fights on that card I'd put ahead of it. Hell, I'd even put Pierson/Riddle ahead of it for laughs alone.

    they fight in a cage for a living. if you don't want to get hurt, work in a cubicle. defending safe fighting because it keeps you safe is retarded.

    This is the dumbest thing I've read on SD. And that's saying something.
