I still wonder why he's so much more popular than all the other champions especially considering that he hasn't finished anyone for so long... good looks? charisma?

-has he ever missed a media day?
-has he ever shown up looking overweight?
-has he ever lost his cool and damaged the UFC brand?
-has he ever been cocky and arrogant?
-has he ever been caught drunk driving?


he's the perfect product to push; Jones is way too arogant, Cain is a quiet guy, JDS has trouble with english, Anderson doesn't like to speak english, Diaz misses media days, BJ Penn always looked out of shape and unmotivated, Rampage was involved in a DUI and a women losing her baby, Machida has a style the average fan often boos. Go down the list of UFC fighters, how many of them are as perfect a product to push? Sure he's predictable, but he's predictable at making the UFC a shit ton of money

Because Canadian's love him and besides the new face in Rory they have never had an abundance of good fighters repping them. Won't speak for all Canadians, but basically if you are from Canada you are a GSP fan, most times a big GSP fan. It isn't really like that for any other fighter/country. At least not a big market like Canada.

Plus girls love him. Pretty much any casual girl UFC fan that I have ran into likes/loves GSP.

Interesting, he keeps dropping his right hand whenever he does a low kick with his right leg. I wonder if Nick can time that for a counter.

thats pure muay thai technique when i was at tiger thats how they teach it and thats how they teach it at home too. people do it differently now but the purest thai technique is swing your hand back as your leg comes forward its for power and balance

Yep they teach that everywhere from Jon Jones old gym in NY to Wands in Vegas. I've been throwing the right rhino up when throwing right kicks for years and feel no strength difference in the kick. IMO you're just asking them to turn their thigh out and left hook your face into jelly.

it doesn't seem like the smartest idea but the thai style emphasis on power even if it come with greater risk and willingness to get hit in order to hit is what make it and exciting style to watch

That does make a lot more sense when you can be in K1 and have a 2-1 win/loss ratio and still be a top guy with a job.
