Obviously you don't want to discuss reality. Carlos Rocha couldn't even sub Jake Ellenberger, what point is there in bringing him in to the conversation with GSP. He's what, 3 or 4 fights away from even worrying about it, and that's if he WINS those, but who knows, it's pure speculation. You want to project him as the future champion based on a win over Kris McCray and some failed sub attempts on Jake Ellenburger? It's asinine.
Falcao I'll grant you has a lot of potential but much of the same argument applies. Unless you have been scouring the internet for all his fights against B-level opponents in Brazil, there isn't a lot to watch on him. The times he's fought a truly good striker, Fabio Maldonado, he's lost by TKO both times. And so far his first UFC fight, aside from some boxing in the first round, against a guy with below average standup, was an amazingly boring fight. For a guy who is "a born killer", where was his killer instinct against Gerald Harris? His performance in round 3 of that fight was in my opinion JUST as bad Kalib Starnes infamous running man impression against Nate Quarry.
