In the generalization, I agree.

I'd say, GSP is a less exciting fighter because at least Tim had that KO factor going for him, so there was always a chance of a brutal KO, so even in a boring fight there was "chance" of something awesome to happen, where as when GSP fight, that chance isn't there.

GSP is an all around better fighter, of course, and you can't compare the skill sets whatsoever.

How boring they are/safe they fight (comparing when Tim was champion) is true, though.

Maybe his new nickname could be TSP or "Georgy."
This is quite hilarious.


You're using Sylvia as a comparison to put down GSP yet Tim was the UFC champion and is tied for succesful defences i believe, Such a bad career and such a "lacklustre" fighter


99% of fighters would love to have GSP's career and ability. Hell ill go as far to say that 99% of all MMA fighters dream they could have achieved what Tim Sylvia has in his career.


Literally the hate towards GSP is laughable , and each thread like this makes the haters look even more bitter.

You can't argue with that, he only made his opponents look like this after 1 round:





You know, knocked completely unconcious and taken out on stretchers.
