Anderson dodges punches, but from ridiculously slow strikers. I could also dodge a punch were it thrown with all of my grandmother's speed.

A punch from a real man, however, puts Anderson on his arse. Just ask Chael P. Sonnen.

Name me one thing GSP has done that is comparable to:-

Getting beaten for 22 minutes straight before submitting the dude administering said beating?

Knocking out a hardcore striker with a front kick to the face?

What he did to Forrest?

What he did to Bonnar?

What he did to Okami?

The deconstruction of Rich Franklin?

Taking a solid round of Hendo grind before humiliating the twat?


If you can see the difference between what GSP does and the above, then no... you really are not getting it. The best thing GSP ever did was turn around that first BJ fight. Since then hes been methodical and very efficient... but not Jedi.

Unfortunately, Chael has so much speed and power that the force from his spinning back fist created a sonic boom that subsequently knocked him over and set him up for the easy knee from Anderson.

I'll tell you one thing GSP hasn't done. Get beaten for 22 minutes straight.

The whole thing reminds me of this Daniel Tosh joke:

IMO, this Daniel Tosh sucks and he lost his cause completely when he said Maria Sharapova isn't hot. C'mon, man, Maria Sharapova isn't hot? That was quite a stretch on trying to sell his joke.

Tell me something:
Which one of this fighters is the one who got beaten for 22 minutes straight. I am a little confused.

Anderson never lost his belt....he's also won 17 straight fights. He finished 15 of those.

In the same stretch GSP has finished exactly three fights and had a lightweight quit fighting. He's also been finished by a LW.
