i think your all missing the point... hes not saying he cant wrestle... people are putting alot of emphasis on GSP's wrestling latley saying its the best in the division. Hughes was saying not really, BUT the way he can set it up with his Striking and Speed makes it more effective.... atleast thats what i got from reading it. and to me no that does not sound like hes trashing a guy, just a good coach breaking down a fighter.

GSP is not a wrestler. He didn't wrestle growing up and he didn't wrestle in college. GSP trains wrestling now to augment his career as a mixed martial artist.

So consider this... Considering how well GSP implements wrestling into his skill set and how he takes down wrestlers (Isn't that kind of what they are supposed to be able to stop?) and destroys wrestlers....

If GSP HAD trained wrestling his whole life, he'd make Kos, Fitch, Hughes all look like they learned wrestling from watching Brock Lesnar on TV....

Sucks when someone who only 'dabbles' into what those guys made a lifestyle is able to train wreck them with it when accompanied by his other MMA skills. If they wanted to wrestle GSP, why are they in MMA?

Face it boys, you stepped up and were shut up.

Matt Hughes can eat way more corn than GSP can in one sitting.... and I still say BJ can jump higher than St.Pierre.

And he lives in paradise and he gets more girls too.



Anyone who finds something to hate and insult in that article has little or no penis.

I think you have to take into consideration what was he asked... I don't think he would purposely go out his way to say that about GSP. I'm sure he was set up to say something like that by a reporter, and they are great at doing that.

I do think what he says has truth in it. GSP not being a good wrestler outside of MMA might be irrelevant to MMA, but wrestling is probably the most important skill a fighter can have, so I do think it would be more significant than any other skill if that were the case. There was nothing Hughes said that was far from the truth.

lol... Matt Hughes.

Edit - Yes, I can see how this post warranted a negative rep. Thanks, Pistol Pete... errrr, I mean, Steroid Steve! Your name alone suggests rational thought and professional conduct!
