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.
