Ok dear Gracie analyst as much as you are hilarious and offer great insights i have to correct you on something - playing fight safe does not make it amazing it makes it boring plain and simple.
It is effective but its freaking boring.
Every game has it's rules and they can be changed maybe one day but until then we will be forced to watch this crap.
On the other end of spectrum you have fighters like Wanderlei hell even Anderson Silva (except for Maia fight) who want to make a fight look interesting and do it for the sake of sport not just scoring ananother win and securing financial position.
I love GSP and some of his fights were indeed.. amazing he has black belt in almost anything and its a waste all he does is take people down and keep them there!!!
