GSP vs Mayhem Miller

I just finished watching the GSP-Miller fight on UFC 52. Wow, what a fight. GSP dominated Miller, yet Miller kept getting up; giving a little; and taking a lot.

GSP spent a lot of time applying some true GNP. GSP tried 2-3 solid submissions. His standup was much better than Millers.

GSP dominated. I think all fight fans would say it was a great fight.

What the heck happened to GSP? (Besides losing once in 40 years???)

Simply "Matt Sera" does not seem like a sufficient answer. GSP is a true star, but these days he does not seem to make highlight reels, except, again, when hoisting his belt.

Its only the fight against Hardy that was disappointing.

His fight against Fitch, when you consider the quality of opponent, was more impressive than the Miller beatdown. Against Alves, he showed us some impressive standup before tearing something in his leg.

I *really* want to see more of GSP's striking. I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt before assuming hes lost his bollocks.

But Mayhem has said some pretty provocative things about Dana and the UFC in recent years.

Would Dana be able to forgive this?

I don't see how this is a question. GSP had some holes in his game, so he did what any good fighter does and addressed them, and became a better wrestler and BJJ guy.

Any good fighter also analyzes their opponents and takes the fight to where their opponent is weak and they are strong.

Thats what GSP does. Serra, or not wanting to strike have nothing to do with it. For instance if GSP does end up fighting Shields, you can be sure you will see him keep it standing, because he knows his advantage standing is bigger than his advantage on the ground. He might even do it with Kos, but I doubt it.

If you want to win, you use the biggest advantage you have, and for GSP, its wrestling and top control, so he would have to be an idiot not to use it.

edit - as for Miller, I agree if your point is he should be in the UFC, I always wondered why he wasn't, he is a reasonably well rounded fighter with a big personality.

I believe Miller said he wants contracts that allow 1 fight at a time so he or the org can split at any time and the UFC isn't willing to do these types of contracts. They make it so they can cut you, but you can't just leave them and fight somewhere else.

Yeah this is one of my favourite fights ever in the UFC. Mayhem being really showy and doing flips off his back to his feet and even GSP chucking in some axe kicks, i just wish GSP would have more faith in his stand up cos it is sick when he lets it go.

Other than Hardy, GSP has done a lot of damage. Take a look at them before Hardy.

Alves:
GSP completely dominated, displayed GnP and outstruck Alves when it was standing. GSP also injured himself in the fight and still dominated Alves.

Fitch:
Fitch was completely destroyed. He was outstruck terribly for 5 rounds.

Penn:
Beatin so badly his corner stopped the fight.

Serra:
Was eating knees from the fetal position until the fight was stopped.

Hughes:
Submitted.

Those were GSP's last 5 fights before Hardy. I think he is doing great.

GSP/Mayhem does get ruined by Big John saying work work work every 5 seconds, even when the fighters are standing and trading!

Same thing that happens to everyone that smashes can like Miller. They move up in competition and eventually fight the best in the world.

Same stupid thought process that leads people to think Brock is suddenly a changed fighter.

GSP was always awesome. He was fighting shitty opponents, so he looked incredibly dominant. Now he is fighting the best WWs in the world and he is still dominating, he just can't look as flashy doing it because if he does the Serra situation will happen again.
