I could see how people feel about him being boring but you have to look at it this way he is winning the fights and he's always controlling every opponent you may not like it but you already know what to expect before you rent. I tho I people rent because they want to see what his opponent is you g to be able to do. I love GSP and I find his style very technical

GSP is a terrific fighter to watch in action. I'm on the edge of my seat every minute of every one of his fights.

Mine's classified as a deadly weapon or at least I think it is. At least I remember cops, tasers, and a judge saying something about assault. I didn't have pants so I can only believe it had to do with my prodigious size.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

I'm the same way. I'm like that with most of the current champs, actually, and for different reasons. There's something to appreciate about all of them. IDK how to explain it, but I was just as pumped during Wandy/Stann as I was during Diaz/GSP.

Fighting is like beer and ice cream - there's a crapload of flavours, and I like 'em all.

Your trunk i.e. glutes, thighs, hams and midsection are what constitutes your 'core', therefore I am still right. Yes, technique is important, but you have to use your legs to maximize that technique and the bigger the legs, the more power behind the technique.

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.
GSP fights safe. Yes, I have not dismissed that. But imagine if he DIDN'T fight safe? You say he has no finishing power, but excuse me, who finished Matt Hughes with a headkick?? He finished Matt Serra by thrusting his massive legs high into the sky and having them drop on his body, which seemed so painful, that the referee decided to stop the fight.

The fact is, safe or not, his legs give me an advantage in finishing opponents.

Ben Henderson's style is to wear you down until you quite. If he landed a headkick or someone, you think he wouldn't finish them? He wore out Donald Cerrone in the 1st round of their second fight by just digging his knees into Cerrone's skinny legs. That's power right there. They know how to finish, they simply just don't, frustrating as it is.

I'm sorry but IMO you are completely wrong. I don't agree with your assessment at all. As others have pointed out there are far more factors in finishing ability then just size of legs or lower body. I completely disagree about Bendo and GSP as well. If they could finish people, they would. The fact is they just can't.
