Lol @ most technical striker. When he fought Shields he landed like three shots on him, just sayin'.



And his win tonight IMO is written off, it was like Rumble vs Yoshida all over again.

Just because GSP beat BJ doesnt mean that GSP is a more technical striker than B.J.

btw did anyone get the looks Rogan was giving after interviewing Evans in the back before the csmera cut away Rogan gave the look with his eyes like twice, my friend said go bet Evans , Rogan is hinting everyone to bet EVans and it sure looked like it.

Once Rogan hugs a fighter's nuts, he never lets go. It is only going to get worse from here. I'm surprised he didn't ask for Daley's phone number after the fight.

Rogan knows his stuff, but he's also a retard when it comes to biases.

He talks people up so much. Hell, any fighter that focuses on his striking over a ground game is, at the time, the most technical/powerful, dangerous striker in MMA.

I would be thoroughly happy if they fired Rogan and Goldberg and hired Bas and Florian.

Correct. But they were both improved fighters in fight 2, GSP was simply more improved.

Well no, it was the other way around. Unless you only count head shots as damaging blows. GSP out-struck BJ in all 3 rounds. As far as percentage of shots landed BJ edged out GSP so you could very well argue he was the more technically sound striker that night.

The second fight was a blowout, with GSP landing a very high percentage of strikes thrown. I would say GSP was more technical that fight.

As for JimmyJames. How can you not rank Anderson as a technical striker?
