I think having GSP vs Shields come on after Hominick vs Aldo, which was a 5* fight, might have hurt GSP vs Shields a little bit. The crowd were probably almost exhausted at the excitement of that fight so having GSP vs Shields was always gonna seem more lackluster, I reckon.

I must say I also failed to see what you saw...

To me it looked like a lot of hype. GSP was ready for whatever Jake was gonna throw at him, and it ended up being a pathetic dance with super predictible combos and no power behind it...

GSP was more than happy to just have to deal with that all night long...

I was really hoping Jake would go for broke at some point, but it never happened

I'm wondering why he and Kos completely gave up on trying to get GSP down after only a couple of attemps...

I have to say I was hoping for a competitive fight, but was utterly disappointed in Shields

I'm still wondering how the hell he took Hendo down and held him down...I guess his back was ****ed for real...

And I can't believe I'm gonna agree with KillerShark, but he said it best

These two nearly canceled each other out in skill, GSP afraid to go to the ground and Shields able to avoid damage on the feet but unable to mount a great offense.
Are you kidding, thats statement is laughable, GSP hardly went for any shots except on a couple of occasions right near the end of a few of the closer round, you know just to secure the round right at the end just to make certain it was his round, or at least a little clearer to these moron judges one of which scored the previous fight 50-43 Aldo like what the fcuk did the judge not see the fight, did he fall asleep miss the entire fight then wake up from the bell at the end of the fight then take a look at Hominick's face and think to himself "dam I just missed the fight but I can't let anyone find out so I will have to make up a score, then just saw Hominick's face and thought this must of been 50-43 to Aldo"

Sorry got side tracked, its just that scoring that fight 50-43 Aldo was an epic fail of judging as bad as I have ever seen, I think it must of been by 50/50 chance of pure luck that he got the winner correct.

Anyway as far as the GSP missing his shots theory goes, it was never GSP's intention to let this fight go to the ground, in fact the thing he did best all night was to prevent the fight ever going to the ground, at least for a respectable amount of time and certainly never been on the bottom not ever.

As for the leg kicks and you thinking "GSP was to scared to throw leg kicks", I'm sure fear had zero influence on his game plan decision to avoid using leg kicks, I sure GSP was terrified of fcuk all all night long as he keep a very cool head and continued to follow a very effective game plan which he executed quite superbly to be fair, was a boring plan but he stuck to it like a true pro, certainly never acted like some scared amateur mug unable to think and making rash plays, so why the fcuk would GSP need to go against his plan that was working just fine and start throwing leg kicks that could give Shields a possible opening to get his way and win a TD, tell me why the fcuk would he do that, what would be the sense when what he was doing was working so well, what would be the intensive, what you expect him to do "durr Im GSP, I have a game plan here that is working just fine, why don't I risk fcuking it up and start throwing some leg kicks then maybe Jake will get a chance to take me down"

And the judges, well one judge called it right 50-45 GSP, the other hur well at least the got the winner right, even GSP looked over when he heard those scores and thought what the fcuk.

By "Miss his shots" I meant his strikes, primarily his jab, spinning back kick, and side kick. I can understand the confusion and I should have worded it better.

I'd love to see Maia vs. GSP and if Maia came in ruthless and not timid at all I think he could pull guard on GSP, or get sprawled on and do his signature hip-roll to guard.

Bisping's striking is mediocore, he has no power at MW at all and he has no leg kicks, his knees are in slow motion and there's no way he could string together combos like GSP can.

Power doesnt equate to skill that has no bearing on his ability Junior also had no leg kicks your point ? did you even watch the Akiyama fight.

And since you're the resident MMAF Bisping nut-hugger at least stop pretending you're not that much of a fan already. He's obviously your favorite fighter and it's annoying how you pretend you're only defending him because nobody else does.

Its annoying how you are trying to tell me who my favourite fighter is , he isnt so stop saying it. Im defending him because i dont mind him , just the whole board is full of bandwagoners and half on them dont even know why the dislike him and because thy dont know give a bad judgement of his ability.

Literally every Bisping fight he is supposed to get KO'ed its laughable its happened ONCE

FACT

Bisping IS A BETTER STRIKER THAN GSP

put the haterade down and just think , everyone brain process in a thread with Bisping mentioned goes to crap.

I agree with what you wrote in red.
However, I can't agree with you when you're saying Bisping is a better striker than GSP.

I repsect your opinion nontheless, even if I disagree with it

This is actually my point. :P I was totally serious, but there is no one that fits the criteria. Maybe chael, but as poor a showing as gsp had with his striking, I still gotta say it was probably mostly the eye injury and he's a far better striker than chael.
