Besides kicks and wreslting tell me something else he lacks?

Chin
Heart
Striking
Aggression
BJJ
Cardio
Experience
Recovery

Seems pretty well rounded to me.

Please don't confuse his lack of finishing a fight with laying on a guy or dry humping him.
Well I can't tell you why "people" are saying it, but I can tell why I said it...mainly that it's GSP greatest strength and Diaz's greatest weakness. Diaz greatest strength arguably is in the stand-up, so why would GSP choose to fight him there? My comment isn't based on GSP's last couple of fights, it's based on his next title defense and what he is likely to do against the contender.
