not so bad

Quote:
Rousey has, however, heard people compare her sex-appeal status to GSP's.

"Everybody keeps coming up to me and saying, 'Oh, do you think if you didn't look such a way, people would like you so much?'

"I'm like, 'Dude, if GSP was butt ugly, you wouldn't want to know who he is so much.'


"I think he lucked out a lot that he's Canadian. I love Canadians. They are the coolest, nicest, most patriotic people, and they will support their countrymen no matter what, and I think that's commendable.

"But if GSP wasn't really good-looking, and really Canadian, he would be really unknown."

It makes sense then that Rousey's favorite fighters have been aggressive, such as Fedor Emelianenko, B.J. Penn and Nick Diaz.

"I like fighters that go into it to finish it. They're not afraid to take risks," by saying, "I'm going to try to do something crazy, and if I end up in a bad position, I know I can handle it.

I'm sure of this last fight will do wonders for his popularity, but his PPV buy rates have been noticeably trending downward after 3 stinkers in a row...including the Shields fight where he was booed out of the building by his own fans.

Well, that was some weak trash talk on her/Diaz's part.

Ronda may have looks, if you call it that for a female fighter... but for me that's average at best. She got all this hype with her first round subs.

I say they feed her to Cyborg and then see her talk trash... she'll wake up the next morning not remembering her name.

GSP definitely would not be unknown. But being good looking certainly does help his career. Im not quite sure if being Canadian makes him a bigger star then if he was from the US or Brazilian for instance.

Some times I wonder what GSP would have been like today if Serra didn't TKO him. Would GSP be pulling off highlight reel finishes like Anderson Silva? If you look at GSP's record before Serra... most of his fights FINISHED as TKO's or submissions... then right after Matt Serra all his fights were "decisions".

Matt Serra robbed us of excitement in the WW division...

GSP does'nt need any help with popularity, he's one of the biggest MMA names in the world and it's been that way for a very long time.

Well whether he needs the help or not does not really matter. His last fight was fun to watch and its been a long time since that has been the case. It might very well bring his numbers back to the amount he is obviously capable of getting but hasnt.

I wish GSP would have took the fight to the ground. It would have been so much more fun to see Shields sweep GSP.

I heard about a champion that is reigning for longer than any other in UFC. But since he is not known for his great looks neither he is Canadian, I can't recall his name...
