What I do mind is hearing him criticized for "not finishing fights," partly because it's unfair and partly because it's ridiculous.

Does anyone really believe that, if he was still fighting the likes of Frank Trigg and Sean Sherk, that he wouldn't finish them?
Well said.

Jon Fitch's post-fight picture has been shown a few times, go ask Fitch if GSP lays and prays, Fitch's face after the fight summarized that entire match.

I misinterpreted what you said, my bad.

Fair criticism is totally fine.

Also I'm not sure GSP would want to TD lets say McLovin or Maia (should they fight one day). So I see it more as fighting smart rather than just fighting "safe".. even though the 2 can be synonyms.

He didn't have any trouble with dealing with black belt BJJ champion Penn. They traded strikes in both fights and Penn had the better of the stand up until GSP started the GNP. Then again I suppose he had a bit of a size advantage.

And other advantages if you believe that weasel Penn.

Hope Hardy goes with his usual trash talking antics a la Marcus Davies. Then it'll piss off GSP and he'll pound him to oblivion. Five rounds of GNP from GSP would be fun to watch.

Maia >>>>>> Penn
(On ground that is)

When is the last time Penn subbed someone from his guard? Penn's jitsu is solid, but offensively he doesn't really use it much. Most of his subs are result of dropping someone standing first, getting their backs then RNC:ing them, he doesn't have the offensive guard of Maia and doesn't go for sub from every position when the fight hits ground.
His guard work defensively though is legendary and I don't think anyone but GSP has really managed to pass it so well.

BJ's a beast on top but isnt nearly as dangerous as let's say Maia or McLovin off his back.

Also I disagree with BJ having the better of the stand up in the rematch.

I second the disagreement of BJ getting the better of the stand-up.

I like Hardy, and he brings a lot of interesting skills/personality to the table, but this fight goes one way, and as boring as some may find it, it's practically inevitable. One of the best things GSP has done with his game is destroying his ego. Hardy's only shot at the W is to catch GSP in the stand-up. Look for the same game plan as was displayed against Alves, only I see Hardy not taking it nearly as well. GSP RNC round 3.

I do think it is stupid. Dan Hardy is kinda popular among less avid only watch spike fight fans. However Swick and Kampman was supposed to be for the #1 contender. If Swick couldnt fight and Paul Daley came in and dominated Kampman and finished him early it shoukd be his fight
