Interesting article although one sided I do like his/her writing style. I had the same sentiments about Edgar of course after he beat Penn. The Maynard fight won me over cuz he does have heart. Reality is Edgar may try to finish, but simply doesn't have the power. That's my thinking.
Now GSP can finish, but he hasn't. Lombard could have finished Boetsh, but didn't and Melvin as well vs Cerrone. The latter three all have one thing in common; it's mental. GSP got knocked out already and probably made a personal vow to never allow that to happen again + GJ camp, Lombard had nerves and was "injured", and Melvin somehow finds a way to lose.
That's what makes JDS, Anderson Silva, Jose Aldo and even JBJ unique because they come to finish in emphatic fashion. I equate it like the NBA spurs...they win championships, but are boring as hell with their fundamentals. Everybody wants to see ACTION.
I'd like to add Renen Barao on the list even though he just decisioned a game opponent. I believe he will take out DC.
PS: Although he is a points fighter he's certainly more exciting than some of the others. He's constantly moving and has to rely on that system to win. So it's not mental it's more or less his physical attributes. Chael might be strong, but he doesn't possess KO ability. So he grinds people to death usually.
PSS: Even though I voted for Bendo both times I also thought Edgar won last night. Go figure...
I think the OP's getting a lot of slack for posting up the article. It's just one opinion that some agree and others do not. Maybe if he wrote it I could understand, it was probably meant to open up a dialogue.
