Gsp was sick, exhausted and vomited all night before Diaz fight. Michael Jordan-esque performance

    Gsp's coach: (and probably kenflo)
    "The best laid plans of mice and men: As a coach one of the main aspects of my job is to conceive plans of action that raise the likelihood of an athlete winning an event. Yet despite our best intentions, there is always a good chance of things going awry that require spontaneous change and adaption in the face of unexpected circumstances. All the major MMA fight camps I have been a part of furnished unforeseen incidents and drama that could not have been predicted and which had to be overcome. Probably the most flawless and well run fight camp I ever saw was that of Georges St-Pierre in preparation for Nick Diaz (Interestingly, his prior fight camp with Carlos Condit was probably the worst). We had an excellent game plan, the physical preparation was excellent, superb choice of sparring partners, all match contingencies covered, no injuries, no backstage drama, perfect weight cut - everything was perfect - until the very night before the fight when Georges drank some watermelon juice for rehydration that had been too long out of the fridge and got a badly upset stomach. He spent the entire night vomiting. It was so sad to see such a perfect camp get ruined at the last minute by such a minor oversight. The night of the fight, Mr St-Pierre came in underweight and drained. We had to curtail the warm up for fear of exhausting him before the bout even began. There was some drama with Mr Diaz's camp insisting that both sides have their hand wraps double checked. This was done, but we did not want them to see how bad Mr St-Pierre looked, so he had to put on an act of confidence and vigor when they came in the dressing room. In the end, Mr St-Pierre showed why he was a great champion that night, putting on a dominant shut-out performance to win a unanimous decision - no one in the audience would have guessed how serious a problem he had to overcome. He used a system of pacing the rounds and timing the takedowns and allowing standing escapes to maintain the pace of the fight whilst controlling the action but at the same time, not exhausting himself. It worked brilliantly and the problem was overcome. This kind of adaptation is crucial in fight preparation at all levels"

    True goat after being basically a shell of himself going into the fight and still 50-33'd Diaz.

    True goat of all goats.

    Yeah by laying on top for five rounds. More softcore gay porn than an actual fight.

    That explains why he got lit up on his feet and decided to try and impregnate him instead. Makes perfect sense now

    As opposed to the murderer he was leading up to the fight right?

    50-42 50-41 and 50-33. When have you ever seen scores like that in championship fight?

    Jordan made you want to watch basketball even if you were not a fan. Can't say the same for GSP.

    I've never seen so many excuses from both fighters for such a lackluster fight.

    People actually thought that shit would be competitive too.

    Gsp's ppv's disagree with you. So does his bank account. Stop being so ignorant.

    I don't know about the Jordan comparison.....they created a shot clock in basketball to avoid GSP-esque strategies.

    According to Rashad Evans, GSP would often feel sick to his stomach due to nerves the night before a fight. Maybe Diaz got to him and pushed him into actually vomiting.

    Not buying it. That watermelon juice must have been out in the warm air for days before it went bad enough to make him sick.... By which point any regular human being would have noticed it was rancid before even finishing the first mouthful. He could/might have been sick, but it certainly wasn't watermelon juice that had been out of the fridge too long.

    His bank account and PPV numbers say you are wrong.

    I've always enjoyed watching Georges fight. People that drag out the 'lay and pray' and 'boring' moniker really make me wonder. This is mixed martial arts and Georges always produces a nice 'cocktail'

    Taking your metaphor a little further, I would say that watching one of GSP's fights was similar to drinking a non-alcoholic cocktail, like a Shirley Temple or something like that.

    Diaz must have drugged GSP's watermelon juice!!!


    So many salty people making up sh*t in this thread.

    1- Someone said "fighters making excuses", I didn't hear GSP say that, so he didn't make excuses. Anyway, I'm not sure how it's possible to make excuses for winning in dominant fashion.

    2- GSP threw 210 strikes in that fight . It amounts to pretty much 8.5 strikes a minute. Please, find how many guys are actually more active than that before you compare this performance to a blanket.

    I'm not sure why I bother arguing with haters who don't care about facts.
