FactioNN said it quite nice with the "stellar arsenal" and "well rounded," I love watching GSP fight and the fact that he is always striving to improve shows how smart, dedicated, and humble he really is. Can't wait to see him duke it out with Penn, should be a great fight.

Congratulations GSP!!

Hard to think of many guys with a legit BJJ black belt and could have (supposedly) competed for his country in olympic wrestling.

Now GSP can finally focus on his striking, especially better head movement and maybe some Muay Thai? That would be awesome.
Ya, it'd be sick if GSP went to Thailand for a month or something.

What a stud

Good news, GSP is such a young guy and just keeps improving at an insane rate. Give him 2 more years and the guy will be unstopable. CAnt wait to see his future acheivments.

Do you know what else would be cool? he already has awsome judo but if he focused on judo and worked hard on his throws I could see him having the Sickest throws on earth, would make for some super exiting fights

Just out of curiosity, how long did GSP even train in BJJ to get his black belt? I know normally it takes about 8-10 years to get a black belt, and I'm pretty sure GSP did it in quite a bit less than that. Anyone know?

GSP is by far my fav fighter. Used to like Penn until he cant make up his mind what weight class he wants to be in. I see BJ having Awesome BJJ but not the strength to hang with GSP. Penns only down fall in teh fight.

Scary thing is, when he was first offered a black belt in BJJ, he probably deserved it, he just din't "think" he did. Now that he accepted it, he must know that his BJJ is even better than it was back then.

Right kick, Hospital.
Left kick, Cemetery.

Yikes, GSP was schooling dudes like Mayhem Miller on the ground 3 years ago. Now, he's a BJJ blackbelt. Amazing how talented the guy is.

His striking still needs work, but is looking better.
