"Is Gsp an average fighter with excellent wrestling."
no, that's Ben Askren.
That's about it.
"GSP is an average fighter with excellent wrestling".
You have to ask yourself, if that's true, why has he been champ so long, when there are plenty of other fighters at ww who have shown at least average "fighting skills" paired with excellent wresting?
What is the variable that keeps him winning? And what is the constant in those victories?
GSP has found a perfect recipe for getting W's in the UFC. The main ingredient, the crucial
ingredient- more important than his dominant wrestling, his great defensive BJJ, his effective jabs and SM punches- is what GSP himself brings.
I laugh when people say he is mentally weak. The evidence is all to the contrary.
No one else at WW puts it together as consistantly as he does: game-planning; implementation; focus.
And I humbly submit that no one else at WW is even capable of doing so.
