He did lay on Nick this fight... but atleast he was active and causing damage.
that is true, wish Diaz could have done better off his back.

My main issue with GSP is that he has the skills and talent to finish fights but will never take the risk. I blame greg jackson camp.

Don't post truth when haters are hating - ruins the mood.

Diaz should've brought the fight to GSP. Condit did so and the fight was amazing.

Im a fan of GSP. Not a massive hardcore fan, but a fan none the less.

I'm starting to realise that The only fight of his ive enjoyed in recent memory was the Condit fight. Every other fight, i think ive just enjoyed the fact that he's beaten fighters i dont particularly like (Diaz, Kos, Shields etc).

I dunno, He's a great champion but I think I might be done, Constant promises of beatings and finishes that not only never arrive, but given the opportunities he NEVER takes to finish. And I fall for the lines, every time, thinking oh what if this time, but it never comes.If anything he's fighting safer than ever.

There has to be a middle ground between fighting safe to win but also causing damage and being exciting.

GSP is as dominating as ever. We shouldn't blame him too much for wanting to fight safe and avoid damage and injuries. If anything, it's up to the other guy to be prepared. Condit brought the fight to GSP and it was extremely exciting, Diaz didn't and hence a fight like that. Rest assured the Hendricks fight will be a good one.

I'm a big St.Pierre fan, and I take the stand that if you can't stop the takedowns, then that's your problem. Georges shouldn't have to take unnecessary risks to make a fight exciting and give his opponent more of a chance to win. The Condit fight was exciting because Condit was capable of making a fight. It's like Jon Fitch, his most exciting fight was the one with Silva, because Silva made sure he posed some offence, and was content to just lay there and let Jon dominate him. Sure, Georges is no Anderson Silva, he's no Jon Jones, but he's won 11 in a row.

I find the technicality of his style entertaining too. It's excellent to see someone that's so smart, and so scientific about his approach. No-one can stop his takedowns, no-one can find a way to stop his boxing, and his top control is excellent. Also, Georges isn't fighting for us, he's fighting because he's a competitor, and this is what he does best. Georges will be one of few combat sport athletes that are at the top of his sport, but will walk away with no major medical issues. I'm a fan, I appreciate him as an athlete, and as a man. I would rather watch certain other guys fight, but I do enjoy watching GSP fight.

It's called staying busy and playing safe, learn the lingo. GSP is an underachiever, and I think he chooses to be.
