    Hello everyone, just a little thread to share my philosphy about GSP and have your feedback.

    Personnaly, I prefer a 5 round ass whooping than a knock out 30 seconds into the fight... seems like a lot of UFC fans crave for finishes, but training MMA I love to see GSP puting on a clinic on his opponents with his wonderfull abilities... of course I love KO's too, but I dont think GSP is boring cause he's so technical a quick knockout would prevent the enthusiasts from seeing his technic.

    Plus GSP did have finishes, but I admit he hasn't been able to finish a fight lately

    He's one of the best ever. He does not lay and pray, he dominates. Anyone who thinks GSP is a boring lay and prayer, or even worse, not one of the best fighters alive should go back to WWE.

    He is technical, technically boring too sometimes.

    GSP is probably the only champion right now that has continuously faced the strongest competition. Even Hardy earned his way to the shot.

    That being said, he fights guys that can beat him and therefore may have to fight smart to win - even in the condit fight he got caught and came close to losing.

    GSP kicks ass.

    bottom line is he needs to finish a fight soon. i dont care how good he is or how well respected he is, no ufc champ (and p4p great) goes 5 years without finishing a fight

    I love watching GSP fights but I also think he needs to work harder for finishes.Not fight like an idiot but just go for it a little more.

    that's what I think too! he "ragdolls" them, and I think he has problem finishing them because most of them go into " foetus mode" and since they dont try anything on him he can't catch them in a submission or whatever.
    Anyway if you ever trained MMA or have a technical eye on the whole thing, GSP is just caviar for the eyes, it's hard not to admire his technical repertoire

    Hardy and Shields. Those are the worst ones, the ones the journalists always talk about. When he failed to get the armbar on Hardy it was clear how much time he devotes to perfecting TDs versus finishing armbars.

    GSP "attacking" his opponents only happens every few fights. He mostly does enough not to be stood up. He is a fight genius and will have very little long term head trauma after his fight career is over.

    Someone who obviously doesn't watch GSP's fights I don't think he has ever lay and prayed and not attempted ground and pound and not took risks on the ground that could allow for scrambles to happen.

    He never took shields down once. That fight was a complete stand up fight.

    Sure, because finishing Hughes by arm bar was something any novice could do.

    Correct. Look at the post to which I'm responding. The question was about fights in which, "gsp isn't actively attacking his opponent"
