Maybe Dana was vindicated in what he said, because the results he was after in going on the anti-Jackson tirade, have been precisely the ones that have ocurred.
Dana says Jackson camp people don't finish, then they start finishing. Perfect for him !
Of course, its almost definite that there is no link, but look at how safe Guillard played it in his last fight before Dana said those things, then look at his first fight after.
I'm no Dana apologist, nor do I particularly agree with him, but you can't hold up recent results and declare that he has been made to look like an idiot. His statement was clearly made to provoke a positive reaction ie finish more fights.
Slightly off topic, but what do guys think is the chance that GSP finishes Shields?
Personally I give him 90% to win and 5% to finish.
I agree with these statistics!
Anyways, on topic....
People seem to give GSP a lot of flak for not finishing his fights! But they should look at his opponents and ask themselves how often they get beat let alone get finished off! The last time Jon Fitch got finished was 9 years ago against Wilson Gouveia! It was 5 years ago (Three years when he fought GSP) that that Thiago got submitted by Jon Fitch! My point being is that it doesn't happen very often that these people lose let along get finished.
You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam
Lets not forget GSP couldnt put away a one eyed opponent for the latter 3rounds how sad is that and theres talks of this chump going toe to toe with Silva LOL please GSP needs some dominant finishes if he dares to swim with the likes of anderson.
My answer is:
Let's not forget you can't write a solid post or put away the hate you have for GSP, as proven is so many threads regarding GSP. How sad is that?! And there's talks of you (this chump) going toe to toe with me and other great posters on this forum!
Please, you need some solid posts (dominant) if you dare to swim with the likes of limba and other posters that make some common sense in their posts.
Looking in your posting history, i've seen you have the tendency to talk a lot of shit about St. Pierre.
It's a free world, you are entitled to your opinion, no doubt.
But i think your opinion is full of C**P! ("A" and "R" are missing from that word).
If you wanna talk about GSP vs Silva, i will advice you to try searching the forum: there are more than 50 threads regarding that subject.
I've started this thread for other reasons.
Your inability express a coherent opinion on the subject, is quite obvious.
If you think GSP is soft, because he didn't finish Kos you are delusional. What GSP did to him, is so drastic, Koscheck wishes he would have been finished early that night.
Koscheck had surgery. The recovery will take 6 months: 6 months untill he can resume training, not fight. Kos won't fight untill october or november. The man can't even run at this moment! BASIC RUNNING IS FORBIDDEN FOR KOSCHECK!
His teeths are meesed up, his face is messed up, the nerves in his face are messed up! FACT!
You have no idea what you are talking about when talking about GSP!
Diego! Ooooooooooooh man! What a fight! Dana already gave him props and a nice paycheck. Glad to see that!
On a side note: Stevenson and Page lost.
Stevenson is done imo. The new guys are just better than him, simple as that.
And Page fought the former BW champ, a fighter that is 2 classes above him in terms of skill. Bowles is a beast.
