Will that record stand for another 10 years?? Thoughts
Very difficult to beat.
GSP has a lot of records that are almost impossible to beat.
But then again, records are meant to be broken.
Kind of a shitty record though. He would be considered better if he didn't win so many in a row.
Does GSP have the record for biggest win streak without a finish(7)? Serious question
You must mean he'd be considered better if he finished an opponent in that time frame.
If he didn't finish his opponents and lost rounds, that does not make sense.
Has Khabib lost a round yet? I could honestly see him beating it.
He dropped at least one round to Tibau, not sure what the official scorecards were.
Cormier's won 28 straight, unless we count UFC only and discount finishes (that'd be dumb, a guy can't break his record if he's won 30 rounds and then finishes in the 1st).
Unless he dropped one round to Shalarous (can't really remember that fight), he is perfect thus far in the UFC.
Don't know about the fights before that, though.
Pretty sure Cormier and Khabib have the longest active streaks in this regard.
Do you mean Shalarous? Because he won 30-27 across the board in the Tibau fight.
30-27 Khabib across the board.
GOAT all day
Benson Henderson have 7 straight wins without a finish too, but in a much shorter period of time
Don't forget all but two of those rounds were title fight rounds and were against opponents ranked in the top 10 at the time of the fight and/or against another reigning UFC champion. Big difference.
I updated the source as the article was written prior to the streak ending...
The eight men (9 opponents since he fought Kos twice) he's faced during that streak – Koscheck, Matt Hughes, Serra, Jon Fitch, B.J. Penn, Thiago Alves, Dan Hardy, Koscheck (again) and Jake Shields – were 59-0 with 33 finishes combined in the fights they had before they faced him.
That's not gonna be easy to beat. It's not easy to even keep a win-streak going for matches that make up 33 rounds.
not sure what you bracketed part means?
If you win via finish in the 1st that would not break your streak. You won that round.
What? Didnt he lose rounds vs Shields and Hendricks?
Good point! Common sense wins again...
They're kind of picking and choosing which scorecards to ignore, I guess.
Two judges had GSP-Condit as 50-45 St. Pierre, but D'Amato scored it 49-46.
For GSP-Shields, only one judge scored it 50-45, while the others had it 48-47.
