The Solution for GSP

We can say all we want about GSP skills and the fact that no fighter can even get near him the last few years. But the fact is I was starting to fall asleep in the last round which should not be happening in a fight like that.

What GSP needs is the coach of Cobra Kai, the coach of Ivan Drago, or Tong Po's coach. Im serious, he needs somebody who doesnt care about the little lambs in the field, and will train GSP to have a killer instinct and destroy people. The penny has to drop sometime. The last 4 GSP fights were goddamn awful, i would rather watch Kalib stearns going for a run.

Got a bit silly there but I agree. He used to be a fighter I never wanted to miss now his fights are just dull and when I see that he is headlining a card I get dissappointed.

GSP was trying to finish quite a bit with the overhand right/head kick before he took damage to his eye.

After the eye incident he probably just went into survival mode.

Anyway, GSP should only be taking half the blame. Jake didn't go balls out or anything either. He was content to stand with GSP and lose. It was odd. You'd think Jake would go for a few desperation takedowns/throw some crazy leather but he didn't. He just lost.

Actually I want to see him train with Wandy and Shogun so he learn a more aggressive attacking style of Muay Thai while they get to learn some wrestling from one of the best in the game.

He used to be a fighter, now hes an athlete.

People talk about how amazing he his, he has one thing that makes him amazing. Just one, his wrestling, and it happens to be by far the most important aspect of being a mixed martial arts points fighter. He is the perfect points fighter, the best within this specific and narrow set of rules. That is why he's great, if a fight broke out on the street between fighters he wouldnt be so great. If they took away rounds or a time limit he wouldnt be so great. If they changed any one of a dozen rules or special conditions he would not be so great. All of this in mind, these factors would not end the greatness of other fighters we consider great, it would be more of an inconvenience. Its a game ender for gsp. He needs all the special rules, conditions and judging criteria in order to be great.

God this GSP hate is out of control. Dan's Henderson's big "H-bomb" didn't put Shields out. Everybody just discredits GSP and never gives his opponents any credit. The only guy I discredit GSP for not finishing is Hardy Kos wasn't finished but his face was destroyed. It was pretty obvious that it wasn't from a lack of trying that Kos was still standing. Kos was standing cause he is a tough SOB, a skilled fighter and that was his big chance and he refused to give it up till the final buzzer went. Same goes for Fitch. These guys train there entire lives, they are the best in the world (with the Hardy exception) and aren't going away easy.

Yes, he only has one strong point. Obviously it's his Wrestling, which he didn't even begin learning until he started MMA. No, his legit Kyokushin Karate Blackbelt, or his BJJ Blackbelt have anything to do with him being an amazing fighter. What is the point of you?

I'm just curious how you see his street fight going? If it's one on one, I see him doing exactly what he would always do. Control where the fight took place, neutralize the other person, and inflict as much damage as he could.
I'm not saying he's a superhero, but I don't know what a "street fighter" would have on GSP. My point is, I don't understand why rounds or time have been a factor for him. It seems to me he can grind out a win regardless of the length of the fight.
