lol, what a load of bollocks. Of course we can blame Nick. He knew exactly what GSP was going to come in and do. We all did. And Nick failed miserably to stop it, perhaps more so than anyone since Dan Hardy.

Frankly, I don't see why blame need be apportioned to anyone. This wasn't a boring fight. And it had a little bit of everything, from grappling, to striking, to clinch work. This wasn't lay and pray. This wasn't hugging.

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.

Put these 2 posts together, and I agree 1000%.

GSP is awesome & not boring at all to me. He's simply the best at tactical fighting. I love it.

That's the only time I see it happening - when GSP is ready to retire and cares a little less about winning or losing.

How can you blame Nick when all Gsp's fights look like that ?. I agree I wernt bored by the fight either and the result doesn't bother me. I was just clearly stating that it wasn't Nick's fault for Gsp's poor performance as someone stated. The fight was always going to be that way.

Fair enough. But I feel as though GSP looks his best when people actually push him. Carlos pushed GSP and was in offensive mode the entire fight, even when on his back. This caused GSP to work, work, and work some more. Nick didn't seem to be too confident in himself. He didn't come in and throw down. Nor did he work from his back all that much. He said that no matter where the fight took place, he'd be in GSP's face. And he wasn't.

Though I personally agree that St. Pierre was fighting at about 60% from round 3 onward.

Im interested in GSP-Hendricks and GSP-Condit 2.

I find myself becoming a HUGE Carlos Condit fan. The guy is just awesome to watch. And near the end of the fight he knew he was behind and he tried hard to get the finish. Alot of the time i am stuck screaming at the screen for the guy to throw cause the fight is almost over but they never do and the fight ends and they lose. Carlos on the other hand really tried hard. Much respect.

I love watching the human blanket



Yes GSP controlled Nick on the ground but Diaz was never put in a dangerous position. Nick risked taking shots just to dish some out and actually hurt GSP in the 3rd. Hope Hendricks knock him out.

I admit I wish GSP would finish... but that's how he fights and it's up to his opponent to find a way to beat him.

He did lay on Nick this fight... but atleast he was active and causing damage.

A little more than half of the fight was spent standing up. And when GSP was on top, he threw knees, elbows, constantly switched position, etc. Do people honestly know what it means to lie on or blanket someone?

Ronny Markes is a prime example of true lay and pray. Learn the lingo, people.
