I don't think the kick that GSP employed is really going to matter. Yeah, he did use that against Hughes but its Hughes, hes not that good of a striker (although he says that he is because he spars everyday with his friends)so he exploited Matt's weakness. I doubt that technique would be very effective on a real good striker so he would use his other strengths . So to think that he would use that all the time would be kind of silly.

Of course I don't think he could use one tiny technique like that to try to win a bunch of matches, but I think he would use those false eye movements all the time, why not? Just like when a grappler fakes a punch or kick then goes in for the takedown. GSP's eye thing was more subtle, but I think it would be something automatic for him, part of playing head games with his opponent. If you can mix up where you look before you kick and still be pinpoint accurate, why not play head games? Maybe it wouldn't outright win a match all by itself against a great striker, but it helps a bit to keep a guy that much more off balance, every little bit helps.

GSP himself placed a lot of importance on that trick after his match, if you listen to that short interview that was mainly what he talked about. I quoted half the interview in his broken English a couple posts up (imagine his accent, you'll hear him speaking ). I'm sure he has lots of other stuff up his sleeve, that was probably his latest trick and he must have been pleased that it worked so well against Hughes.
