I am a GSP fan so this isnt a bump on him but I think he is ripe for the pickings. I didnt see him taking any clean shots last night but his face was a wreck. Somebody like Ellenberger or Hendricks ( who can hit and wrestle ) is going to be trouble. That being said I also like Diaz but he was embarrasing last night. He has nothing to offer but his mouth.
He ate a few good shots from Nick, but nothing particularly damaging. He says he bruises easily, and some people simply do. He did take a significant amount of damage from Condit, but hey... it's Condit.
It's only the last two fights where he took a lot of damage. Particularly the Condit fight. Every other title defense Georges has taken very little abuse.
I noticed the same thing. Which has me wondering if his knee reconstruction has affected his quickness, or whether he simply doesn't trust the knee 100% and hasn't trained it as hard as previous to the injury. Last two fights have looked like the start of the downward slope for his career. I hope it isn't true, but that's what it looks like to me.
I think George isnt taking enough damage.....I dont like or dislike George and I find the fact that he always survives and wins outstanding but I personally would like to see him take horrible horrible damage in a great fight and win instead of the last 4 years of taking a little bit of damage in boring fights. The last fight was the most interesting George fight in a while....simply because Diaz blocked a takedown.
