He may not be the most exciting, but he shuts people down. Say what you will of him, but he shuts people down. We can't act as though GSP didn't stand with Nick and give him plenty of time to get something going. GSP wears you down. He beats you at your own game. And he generally makes you look like a novice. He may not finish, and he may not take risks that would likely lead to him getting finishes, but he wins. And in the end, you don't retool a winning strategy.

I always tell people who accuse GSP of lay and pray that they ought to download a few Ben Askren fights. GSP constantly throws when he's in top position, as is evidenced by his opponents typically leaving bloody and bruised (as Diaz did). He just doesn't necessarily throw the hardest.

None of this is to say that GSP doesn't have off nights. I thought him very off tonight. It was as though he was fighting at 60%. But he still managed to beat Nick Diaz everywhere. So what do you tell a man who can run on half a tank and still make his opponents look like rookies? To change because a few punch drunk fans on the internet find him boring? C'mon.

GSP never beats people at their own game he literally fights to his opponents weaknesses every time and has since he fought Matt Hughes the first time.

The only fight of his I ever found boring was Hardy but - to be honest - GSP looked bored in that fight too. The rest of the time I am quite entertained by his skill, ability, and fight IQ.

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

Tired of Nick Diaz, fought like wuss. Boring ass fake fighter, couldnt even get GSP in any danger and make it exciting. Carlos Condit gave GSP a great fight, Nick Diaz brought out the worse in GSP, not the best.

C'mon you can't blame nick for Gsp's performance, that is a typical Gsp fight. Diaz was never going to get going, it's a hard to stick to a gameplan like nick's when your always worrying about the takedown, especially Gsp's.

Diaz..Edgar.. Cormier.. Cain.. Mir.. Overeem.. Jon Jones

This is why I like watching his fights. Every opponent poses a new problem for him, and every time he finds a way to shut them down and exploit them. Sometimes it goes exactly the way you'd think, sometimes, like tonight, it's unexpected. Lots of people said that GSP wouldn't use the takedowns because of Diaz's ground game, but he did, and not only that he shut him down there and beat him up on the ground. Other than Bendo, no one has done that to a Diaz.

If you were excited for this fight and got let down, it's your own fault. GSP was in it. It was bound to suck from the beginning.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

I love watching GSP, his fight IQ is off the charts. I love watching him pick apart his opponents and the fact that he hasn't finished in a long time really isn't an issue for me.
