Yeah, the guy finished 3/5, and likely would have finished Thiago if not for the groin injury. Watch a GSP fight right now, and tell explain to me how he doesn't try to finish. He throws BOMBS in his GnP, he's just been facing guys with mutant chins.
Just because he gets guys afraid of the takedown, then outstrikes them, doesn't make him very boring to me, it makes him the most dynamic fighter in the UFC, hence clearing out the WW class with the exception of a few. And you can definitely make the argument that he has faced tougher competition than Silva.
He is one of the few fighters who I actually see go for the kill when a round is coming to an end, I'm just sayin.
MAN, I want my account back....
