The thing with GSP is he has some really big strong legs, which indicates that he can finish people whenever he wants. I think he chooses to fight conservative and punish opponents.
Lolwut?

Knockout power comes from the legs. Have you seen the size of his thighs, hamstrings and glutes? He is built to dominate fighters at his weight class. Look at people who hit hard. They ALL have above average size in legs. Wrestlers who love to ground and pound have massive legs. It's all where there power comes from.

Chuck Liddell didn't seem to have big legs... and a guy with huge legs, Ben Henderson hardly ever KOs anyone.

That's because Ben is the closest fighter to GSP in terms of size, skillset and mentality..he chooses not to KO people. He fights that Muay Thai sensibility of just punishing opponents until they themselves break. Just because they dont' KO people it doesn't mean they lack the ability.

Chuck Liddell, I don't know much about him, I can't find a picture of his legs. Maybe he is an exception.

Dan Henderson, Hendricks, Robbie Lawler...

Punching power comes from knowing how to throw a punch hard.

LOL that is absolutely hilarious if you think GSP or Bendo are choosing not to finish guys. GSP fights safe that's a fact that even he acknowledges. But he also doesn't have finishing power. You will never see him KO a guy with 1 punch the way someone like Hendricks does.

I will give you 1 guy that would support your argument though. That would be Tyson Griffin. He has a few KO's on his resume and massive legs that likely play a large role in that.

But your generalizing statement just isn't true. Especially in the cases of GSP and Bendo.

Charlie Brenneman had some massive legs.

Ryan Bader has a massive upper body...small legs....big power.

Josh Barnett has huge legs....not much power.
