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?
Anderson has the abilities to be a great technical striker but he doesnt use his great technique too often because he is the most talented striker in MMA by far....... I think too many people are thinking talent = technique and that simply isnt true.

A.Silva is so talented he doesnt need good technique, just watch the Forrest Griffin fight again. He was fighting with his hands down for most of the fight.

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.

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.
