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.

just saying.

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

Why are people tired of GSP?

People should be tired of fighters who can't defend the takedown or fight effectively off their back!

Exactly. Diaz knew what was coming and for the most part failed misrelbly to counter it.

I find GSP to be fun to watch because seeing fighters against him is like watching them try to solve a puzzle for the ultimate fighter. And he really doesnt lay n pray, he's pretty active on the ground going for strikes and submissions occasionally.
because he use to try to finish fights now he just tries to score points and neutralize everything his opponent does instead of initiating some action himself. Asside from a little pitter patter he barely attacks. He almost never goes for subs I dunno what fights you are watching. The most exciting thing he does is throw elbows when hes on top....sometimes

Shame on you brotha'. You have been a witness to a great athlete and his acomplishments. An athlete who's contribution to the sport is immesurable, who's presence and dedication has transformed the sport. GSP has changed the sport forever and we may not see another athlete like him in MMA for decades. He is the kind of athlete that fits in with the likes of Gretzky, Jordan, Tiger Woods and others. The game was not the same after they played it. Shame on you brotha'!

because people can't respect GSP for what he is, a technical master.

Want to something neat that I just noticed? Nick Diaz switched stances a bunch of times in the fight to try and setup angles for his strikes and back up GSP to the fence. Every single time, GSP recognizes this and circles away on Diaz' lead side. If Nick is in southpaw, GSP circles to Diaz' right, if he's in orthodox, GSP circles away to Diaz' left. Even when Diaz switched stances in the middle of a combo, GSP still circles away and exits on the correct side.

Small details like that make a huge difference in the fight. Circling to the wrong side means you walk straight into a Diaz combo and get wailed on with 20 body shots. That's why Diaz kept changing stances, he was trying to catch GSP going the wrong way but he was successfully countered every single time. Most people don't notice these things, hell, I didn't see it until today.

Doesn't matter if GSP is "boring" or not, he's already a legend and no one thus far has had an answer for him. He'll continue to sell huge PPV numbers because he's reached that status where we all hold our breath every time he steps into the octagon with a new contender that's the "biggest challenge" to his throne. He's gone on a tear in the WW division and beats and beats up everyone that's faced him. Everyone said Diaz would wreck GSP on his feet but you can take the scoring from the feet alone and GSP would still win the fight. Everyone is waiting for him to fall which is why we will continue to watch his fights, everyone here is a fan of MMA and GSP is the epitome of an MMA practitioner.
