This is very true, but generally even great TDD isn't enough. BJ Penn has great TDD but it didn't do him any good. The problem is that GSP's TD timing is so good. He always hits the TD when the other guy commits to a strike. Very hard to stop a TD off guard like that, especially against someone with GSP's TD skill
