I mean, I like MMA, I like watching MMA and GSP is quite unique as a fighter and I love seeing him fight, what you guys deem as "boring", I actually see interest in it.
so it's either 1 of 2 things:
1. I'm seeing shit that actually isn't there
2. I'm seeing shit that's there but that you are not educated enough to see or enjoy
but since others see the same thing as I do, it's either a global and very strong collective hallucination
a bunch of fans that are not educated enough about the sport and don't want to admit it, rather blaming it on the fighters rather than their own lack of will for educating themselves and learn to enjoy a different aspect of the sport, closer to an actual sport than a bar brawl would be.
collective hallucination or lambda fans?
which one is the more likely?
the thing is, pretty much everyone who's well versed in the sport has tons of praises for GSP games, arguably, he doesn't finish, but the fact that he's an all time great and one of the GOAT is a well established fact in the whole professional MMA world.
so then again, are those people hallucinating and seeing stuff that is not there?
the issue I have with GSP haters is that they have little to no argumentation to support their claims. I'd be loving to debate with people willing to actually debate. it's everyone's right not to like a fighter. But then again, why do you watch him fight in the first place?
Being that this is a dedicated mma forum, it's likely that the average member has been exposed/follows mma more than the average Brock Lesnar fan. Now when the general consensus(even among GSP fans) is that GSP is boring and doesn't fight to finish then I don't know what to say except:
1) GSP is a boring fighter...; or
2) Some highly educated GSP fans are over-analyzing his fighting style so blindly that they disregard the fact that he is boring and could finish fights if he took a risk.
PS: Many watch his fihgts hoping GSP will actually come to fight (based on his false pre-fight statements/promises) or they watch wishing for him to get KO'd like Matt Serra did
