Typo, my bad, I meant GSP outstruck BJ. I think BJ landed like 40 shots all night and GSP landed nearly 300.
Most of those were ground strikes. Which have no basis in this argument.
Wouldn't say GSP is the best striker, he's definitely up there don't get me wrong, but he's also contending againts the likes of Martin Kampmann, Daley (who is a damn good striker, just not "THE MOST TECHNICAL STRIKER IN MMA OMFG") and Thiago Alves, all of whom I'd rank over GSP in the striking department. Now, GSP does quite possibly have the most well rounded game in MMA which makes all of his skills seem like they're god like, where as strikers like Daley, Kamp and Alves have to worry about the takedown etc.
Although I think BJ was out of his element being at 170, I watch the Alves fight recently and I think GSP legitimately outstruck him in between shot attempts. He even knocked Alves down with a good right hand. Alves looked to immobile and slow to deal with not only GSP but a lot of good strikers at 170. And I certainly think Kos would beat Alves given adequate time to prepare.
