    Off the top of my head,

    Koscheck in both fights.
    Penn in their first fight
    Hughes

    Any more? gifs are a bonus.

    I remember the same ones you do.

    I'd have to re-watch the Alves and Fitch fights, but I don't remember either of them taking GSP down.

    Didn't Condit take him down too?

    GSP was under Fitch for a little while in round 2 or 3 of their fight but GSP swept Fitch in a brilliant fashion before Fitch could do anything.

    I think Condit hit a switch on GSP momentarily, but I don't remember a takedown.

    Koscheck took him down once in both of his fights against GSP.

    Wondering if Karo tripped GSP at some point, would have to rewatch it.

    He was on his back against Alves for a bit, but had a butterfly hook and stopped him from doing any GnP damage.

    Possibly because Karo was so thoroughly dominated in the grappling aspect. But that was a nice attempt by Karo.

    I remember the Karo fight. That was right when I first started really getting into the UFC.

    Mayhem swept him like he swept Shields, with his own sweep the so called "monkey roll"

    Menjivar took GSP down in GSP's debut a couple of times.
