Right now, GSP is a ***** is he retires. Hendricks had him, the judges were wrong. It's not GSP's fault, but he can't deny Hendricks the greatest moment of his MMA career by ducking the rematch.

You clearly are a HUGE GSP fan. Fair enough. But your opinion isn't the be all and end all of MMA. I'd almost say a majority of MMA fans I've spoke to are bored watching GSP fight, and don't care about his upcoming fights. I'm not excited about him fighting, but I enjoy his fights for the most part and wouldn't call him boring personally, but none the less, the dude's opinion is fair and pretty popular.

His statement proves that he's only watching mma for the excitement and KOs and doesn't see the beauty and the hard work ,in this sport and all martial arts !

And btw I'm not a huge GSP fan , infact I like Johnny more

Everyone really thinks GSP lost. If he is good enough to beat Hendricks, he needs to prove it. GSP hasn't lost a step imo, Hendricks is just a dude who is capable of beating him at any time.

Most people are only watching MMA for the excitement. I wouldn't watch it if it was boring. I don't give a sht about the hard work they put in. If Anderson sits and eats pizza all year, I couldn't care less. I watch the fights, not what they do in the gym.

You seem like a huge GSP fan in random dislikings to people who talk down on him, defense of a somewhat convincing loss, and thinking he shouldn't rematch Johny. You can't take away the fight. Johny cares more right now about beating GSP than he does getting the title. GSP is top 3 all time, beating him would be the defining moment of Big Rig's career, or a solidifying moment of GSP's.

We clearly have different views on MMA dude... ofcourse we are watching it for the excitement too , That why the sport tis so popular , but I personnaly love every aspect of the sport , even how a fighter cuts weight or what he trains more and how much he trains , style and much more (even how strong they are mentaly/physically etc)...
I do think that GSP won the fight on points (cuz of the points sytem flawsbla bla bla) I dont wanna get into this discossion again ... But from a fight point of view ofcourse Hendricks won...
And I'm defending GSP here cuz I hate when people say that he's boring , they almost impling that he doesnt know how to fight , cuz they dont see the skill when gsp its on top of his oponent how precise , skilful and careful not to make a mistake , and not to say his hart , even when most fighters would slow down and easy give up he pushes and gives his best ...
That's why I get offended when people say that aboutGeorge cuz they dont see all of that , thats why I said that guy its not real mma fan cuz he doesn see all of that ...
(and btw compared to Rory ,GSP its way more entertaining ...)
Johny its kinda of a fighter that everybody likes , his wrestling and take down def its so good . Thats why he's so confident and awesome on the feet , cuz he knows that he can go thro anything ...
And btw Johny said that he doesnt care about GSP or what GSP will do , he want the belt and the belt only

I'm right with the majority on GSP lost and should give a rematch to JH. But if the guy is seeing Aliens he needs some serious mental help first. Your health comes first when your rich, young and good looking like GSP.

SMOOTH

People can be skilled, careful etc. and still go for the knockout. GSP's lack of interest in finishing a fight is why some people are bored of him.

I do enjoy aspects of the training and stuff, but only slightly. What MMA is to be, is when the cage door closes. Roy Nelson is lazy as fk in the gym, but dude has a sledgehammer for a right arm and can knock out almost every fighter in the division. That's the important thing.

Yes...Cathal Pendred...? But to me, a press conference is a bit overboard. I'd tell my bosses, and they could do their on presser.

LOL I cant believe this. People are bitching about him holding a press conference? I wonder if the people bitching about him holding a press conference are the same people who bitched because he wanted to keep things private. He says nothing he loses he has a press conference to address the questions people have and make an announcement he loses. I think its a good idea to have a press conference.

Second Hendricks won the fight thats not a question. However after the third time watching it GSP could have won on points, said it before but the scoring system is flawed.

About GSP being boring this is what I have found out about GSP. I think he could have had a lot more finishes if he would go for them. This IMO is not GSP's fault I believe its his corner and gameplan. I remember a fight forget which one but inbetween rounds Greg Jackson straight told GSP to stop passing gaurd and just maintain position. I think there are opportunities to go for submissions or get to a more dominant position but GSP being the smart strategic fighter he is does not deviate from his gameplan. I think this may be why some people consider him boring.

I dont consider him boring but I do think that in a lot of his fights he could have done more to finish.

Or he could have just told everyone he is retiring a while ago (not THAT hard a decision. A few days to really decide and talk it over), or not say anything and accept the rematch he's undoubtabley been offered?
