Now you're just saying things that make no sense. He's absolutely worked everyone he has ever fought except Matt Serra (in the first fight) and BJ. Just because you don't finish someone doesn't mean you aren't making them look terrible the entire fight.



BJ's a great fighter, one of my favourites, but you need to take his balls out of your mouth. The last two fights he has had, he has been the heavy favourite to win. He hasn't faced another guy as well-rounded as himself since his loss to GSP at welterweight.



Once again, what? GSP has finished 2/4 of his opponents, even then the fights that went to decision weren't even close. He outclassed each of those 4 guys in EVERY aspect of MMA.



BJ's not the protege, he's the "prodigy".
Spellcheck sucks. What can you do.

And I'm not allowed to have an opinion? Take your balls out of your own mouth.

GSP has a big frame and fights little guys. I don't know if he's just afraid to lose...if you watch his OLD fights. He's predictable. He takes you down, puts you in side control, and g'n'p's you. Sure he's a little better now, but that's his game. Size and conditioning are really his only strength's against BJ (and good kicks).

Well first of all, spellcheck isn't going to tell you're using the entirely wrong word buddy. Prodigy is not the same thing as Protege.

I didn't say you weren't allowed to have an opinion, I'm just obviously going to point out the errors in the formulation of that opinion.

Here's some advice. Before you type what you're saying, think about what it is you're trying to put across. What does GSP having a big frame have to do with being afraid to lose? And how does he fight "little" guys? Jon Fitch is about the same size, so is Josh Koscheck, so was Frank Trigg, and Matt Hughes was only a few inches shorter. They're hardly "little guys".

Stick with the same train of thought so what you're saying makes some semblance of sense.

How isn't BJ predictable? Every fighter sticks to their bread and butter. BJ uses his boxing, he ends up getting the fight to the ground from top position, passes guard, mounts, then takes the back and finishes with RNC. Why should a fighter stop doing what works? And his grappling has come a long way since his first fight with Hughes, not a "little".

They're evenly matched in this fight, which was the point I was making with my original post criticizing your comments about GSP.
