I keep reading about how poor GSPs striking is because of the Jake Shields fight. I realise that this is due to the bad performance in that area in comparison to how poor Jakes stand up is. I know doubt feel as though this happened because of the severity of the eye poke that GSP endured. Being poked that badly in the eye during a fight is horrendous and would throw even anderson silva for a loop (not comparing GSP striking to Silva, its obvious that Silva is better). Outside of the Jake Shields fight is there another time when the striking prowess of GSP comes into question as being dismal? Personally i dont think so, i think that GSP has great striking and intelligent striking. Good set up skills are essential for his gameplan of control and i think that in his overall game that striking plays a big part and he is fantastic at utilising it as he needs to.
